Saw this on another forum and thought it was worth sharing.

This may assist in getting your battery kick started so it will charge again.

Also if the batteries go bad you can have them replaced, no need to replace the whole assembly.

i have a box full of the 18v xrp batteries that are dead or almost dead..........i have tried taking them apart and identifying the bad cell and replacing it (without any sucess) ......i can buy 2 new ones at lowes for approx $95 for the pair......i would appreciate the source on replacement battery packs if it is cost effective

i guess my point is i havent found any kits etc that were cost effective when i can buy new ones at lowes for under $47 each .....thus the box full

FWIW i havent had the "no charge issue" in the OP ......mine just get to the point they will not last 5 min on the tool before being dead again..

got my first Li Ion 18v batteries this week with a new tool.....intrested in how they will hold up...they are physically much lighter than the XRP battaries
