Question: Hi there, I have another question for you. I have a Dewalt 18V battery pack when I stick it in the charger the charger light doesn't come on therefore I assume it isn't charging? when I take the voltmeter to the battery it shows just under 18V My main question is will this system of yours repair that paticular battery?
Answer:
First be sure your charger is working! The lower voltage means that you have a bad cell in the battery. You should be able to open the case by removing screws giving you access to the "14" 1.2 volt cells. Our "Battery Resurrection guide" will show you how to make it charge correctly again. You can try the easy resurrection process first because you don't even need to open the battery.
Question:  HI; WILL THIS WORK ON DEWALT BATTERIES SINCE THEY ARE MADE BY B&D?WILL IT ALSO WORK ON PANASONIC BATTERIES THAT ARE 4-5 YEARS OLD (THEY STILL HOLD A CHARGE BUT NOT VERY LONG) 12V&9.6V? THANK YOU Answered on Apr-26-05
Answer: If you can access the cells in the Dewalt battery by opeining the plastic housing, then it will work or you can use easy resurrection without opening the battery. I have resurrected 15 year old batteries that were zero voltage after an overnight charge. Your Panasonic batteries sound like the perfect candidate. After Resurrection, you will notice more power and run time as well as longer charge holding time.
Question:  Can I do my digital camera batteries that are slim, but don't have any metal bits where the alligator clips hold onto like in your photo. How long does it take for the resurector to get the dead batteries going. What's the postage cost to CA 94024 Many thanks, Neville Answered on Apr-25-05
Answer: I haven't tried camera batteries, but if they are ni-cad, then it will most likely work. I normally use probes - I used the alligator clips, so I could take the picture. There is nothing to ship. I am selling access to our secure site that has step by step instructions and pictures. If you have no mechanical ability then have a friend or family member that does help you.
Question:  does this also replace the charger? Answered on Apr-27-05
Answer: No, you still need to charge the batteries. Normally, Resurrection will allow your charger to fully charge the batteries.
Question:  Is this limited to NiCad batteries? How about NiMH? Do batteries need to be resurrected periodically? Answered on Apr-29-05
Answer: I don't have any dead NiMH batteries to try Resurrecting, so I don't know. I have found that some Ni-Cad cells need to be Resurrected again. It might depend upon the chemistry of the battery or life that is left. Resurrection brings the battery back to life and its full potential, but it won't turn it into a new battery. If I gave you a Resurrected battery and you used it, you would probably think it was a new battery from its run time and power.
Question:  Hello I am very interested and would like to know if this will work with hitachi 18v and do you have to take the battery apart. If you could tell me how this work's a little. I have two batteries and they are very expensive to buy new. One battery holds a charge for a little 30 min the other only holds a charge for 10 min can you help me? Answered on Apr-30-05
Answer: You've probaby noticed that even right after you charge them there is little power or run time. That will change with Resurrection! You can use the easy resurrection method for your sealed batteries.
Question:  Would this work on Power Drill batteries that are over 8 years old? Seems unrealistic... Answered on May-02-05
Answer: This will work on any age NiCad battery. I resurrected 15 year old Panasonic D cells. If a NiCad battery is leaking or if it has been damaged, then I would not be too hopeful, otherwise it should work.
Question:  I have two millwakee 14.4 VDC batteries that I bought. I did not know that you could not use a power inverter/generator to power the charge. Well after charging both batteries on the way to a job site it killed both. Will your method work for this too? Answered on May-08-05
Answer: The question is, did you kill the batteries or the charger? I can't tell you it will work, but it is probably worth a try. You can always use the battery resurrection down the road anyway.
Question:  I have 2 Milwaukee 18v power tool batteries that will not take a charge because they sat too long. will this fix them? Thank you. Answered on May-17-05
Answer: Resurrection is very reliable on batteries that have sat too long and won't charge up again. You'll understand why after you purchase the guide.
Question:  is this a cell replacement? thanks Answered on May-19-05
Answer: This is NOT a cell replacement. Resurrection is easy with my "Battery Resurrection Guide". Cell replacement is time consuming and requires skills and costs money. It will cost you nothing to Resurrect. So, play the almighty and bring your battery back from the dead! Some batteries will have a defective cell that will not respond to resurrection. In that case, the guide has a section explaining where to get cells and how to replace them, but you need additional skill to do this.
Question:  What kind of technical skill or equipment would I need for this? Answered on May-22-05
Answer: You will need a voltmeter or a 1.5v light bulb in a socket. If you have enough skill to use a voltmeter and a screwdriver, you can do a Resurrection. The light bulb method is only a last resort.
Question:  HI, Is your method just a procedure to do to the battery, or does it require replacing any parts? Answered on May-22-05
Answer: This is just a procedure. No parts need replacing.
Question:  Hello, sorry to bother you but I was wondering If I would need to send the battery in to you or do you send me a product to fix them? I have 2 that will not take a charge. The charger only puts out 10v for a 12v battery so is this what I would need ? Answered on May-22-05
Answer: DON'T send the battery to me. After I receive your payment I will send you a link and password to the online Step by Step guide, so you can resurrect your batteries. All you need is a volt meter and a couple other simple things. I am assuming that your charger voltage seems low due to a shorted cell in the battery. This you can resurrect!!!
Question:  if i purchase this guide what mechanical item am i going to need to fix the battery Answered on May-23-05
Answer: You will need a volt meter and a couple household items.
Question:  I have 2 Ryobi 12v. drill batteries that are dead, dead, dead and I don't know why. They just stopped charging. What tools/materials will I need to "resurrect" them? How long will it take? Thanks! Answered on May-24-05
Answer: I'm not familiar with the Ryobi 12v but you will need a voltmeter and a couple other household items.It will take less time than it would to go buy new batteries.
Question:  will this work on porter cable and craftsman 12v batteries. thank you Answered on May-24-05
Answer: It will work on all nicad batteries. Many owners of those batteries have ordered the Guide and you can read their feedback and testimonials left for me.
Question:  What EXACTLY do I get for my money? Answered on May-25-05
Answer: You get access to my password secured "Battery Resurrection Guide" with step by step instructions and pictures. No hardware. You will need a volt meter and a couple household items.
Question:  Does this also work with laptop batteries? Answered on May-25-05
Answer: I tried this on a li-ion gateway laptop battery and it did not work. If you try this on a NiCad laptop battery I would expect it to work, but I don't know for sure because I don't have one to try it one. If you try it, please let me know the out come, so I can share it with others and call me if you need help during the process.
Question:  I HAVE MAKITA 12 VOLT BATTERIES THEY DONT HAVE ANY SCREWS TO OPEN THE CASE THEY LOOK LIKE THEY ARE SEALED CAN THEY BE RESURRECTED .THEY ARE THE SHORT STUBBY TYPE NOT THE LONG TYPE LIKE THE 936 VOLT. Answered on May-25-05
Answer: First check them to see if they are NiCad. If they are Nicad then the new "easy resurrection" process I added to the guide will probably work
.
Question:  Can you elaborate on the procedure for the Makita battery? I have 2 14.4 NiCads that are about dead, and I would like to know the liklihood of success with your product. Answered on May-26-05
Answer: I know that Makita batteries tend to be sealed. My 3 step process requires access to the cells in the battery. I added a new 1 step process called "Easy Resurrection" that will most likely work for your 14.4 NiCads.
Question:  Hello! I have 2 Ryobi 14.4v batteries that are essentially dead. I would rather recharge than replace them, but am wondering what an estimate might be for the cost of the tools required for this 'battery resurrection.' Also, is this a risky procedure as far as exposure to battery acid, battery explosions, etc? I am a fairly handy person, but opening batteries seems a little risky..... Any general info you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Of course, I do not expect any specifics since I understand that this is what you are selling! Thanks again! Sincerely, Jammie W. Answered on May-26-05
Answer: You should only open a battery housing containing NiCad cells. Never try to open a battery containing acid. I've never seen an acid battery containing screws, so... You will need a volt meter. You can buy one for about $9.95 if you don't already have one. A battery explosion is highly unlikely and hundreds of users have not had any such problem. UDI has tested the process to 10 times what is receommended and have had no problem whatsoever.
Question:  I have a Black and Decker cordless drill that uses 18 Volt battery packs. I have two packs and neither pack will hold a charge. On one battery, the drill won't work at all and on the other battery, the drill barely works. Would your Battery Resurrection device work for these batteries? Answered on May-27-05
Answer: As long as they are NiCad batteries, they sound like perfect candidates for Resurrection.
Question:  PLEASE ADVISE IF A DEAD NICAD WHICH IS RESURRECTED, AND GOES DEAD AGAIN, CAN AGAIN BE RESURRECTED. IF YES, HOW MANY TIMES IS RESURRECTION POSSIBLE? Answered on May-27-05
Answer: Some NiCad batteries last longer than others. You can Resurrect it as many times as you want. It seems that the more times I've Resurrected my Versapak batteries the longer the Resurrection lasts.
Question:  Other than removing the screws, will I need any other tools and equipment? I.E volt meter, etc etc. Thanks. Dave Answered on May-27-05
Answer: You will need a volt meter and a few household items.
Question:  will this work on any manufacturer? I have craftsman 12volt mid 90's, makita 12volt mid 90's, and a bostich(20.?) I would hope that one works on all of them, however the bostich is an odd voltage. Answered on May-28-05
Answer: Battery Resurrecton should work on all of them as long as they are NiCad batteries and the battery resurrection guide is for all nicad battery brands.

Rick

NOTE: The tool to open some craftsman batteries - the top of the screw is a 6 point star with and small niple in the center. I guess craftsman does not want people to be able to repair the battery. The torque screws with the round tit in the middle of the socket is used to deter removing the screws. If it is a NiCad battery there is nothing dangerous inside, so the reason for the security screws is obvious. Anyway, since I am a toolmaker I can tell you what to do, but I don't kwnow what your skill level is. Here goes... "This information is in the Battery Resurrection Guide"

Question: hi there, could you tell me how long the battery lasts after its been ressurected before you have to ressurect it again ? thanks and it sounds interesting Answered on May-29-05
Answer: It depends upon the condition of the battery before Resurrection. I have one battery lasting over 3 weeks and counting. I have another that only lasts about 3 days. I have one versapak that is going for weeks and 2 others that only last about a week, but a quick Resurrection and they charge up again and have new life.

Question:  I probably have all the tool needed but what kind of other hardware would I need? If I need to have an expensive power supply or some other devise then your procedure won't be worth it. Answered on May-30-05
Answer: You will need a volt meter and a few common household items.

Question:  I have a Makita 14.4 that is about 3 years old. I have the "short life" problem after charging. I am very interested in your product, but it appears the batteries are sealed. Any dealings with these batteries as far as getting them open to expose the cells? Thanks! Answered on May-30-05
Answer: I added a new process "Easy Resurrection" that Resurrected my 14.4 volt Black and Decker without opening the battery. If your Makita is a NiCad it should work for you as well. Please send me a testimonial when it does! Easy Resurrection has been working for all brands of NiCad batteries.
Question:  Sounds great. But, my problem isn't weak batteries, my problem is a dead charger. Will your unit work in lieu of a charge or must I still try to find a charger. By the way, my batteries are Black and Decker Fire Storm #FS132 Power Pack, Type 1 (NOM 13.2V) Thanks.... Answered on May-31-05
Answer: You will need to charge after Resurrection. After you get a charger and find that your batteries won't hold the charge or take a charge, then the Resurrection will help.
Question:  This sounds great. Could you please tell me what exact tools I need & how complicated this is? I'd like to think I'm fairly handy woman, but I don't have a handy man around to help. Answered on May-31-05
Answer: You will need a volt meter and even a mildly handy woman can do this. The "Battery Resurrection Guide" is a step by step guide that makes it easy.
Question:  I have a craftsman 18.0 volt drill the battery charger indicates weak or defective battery. The battery used to still work but not hold a charge long. Now both batteries barely turn the drill over. The battery is #982027-001. Is there hope for these batteries? Will your product work on this craftsman product? Answered on May-31-05
Answer: It will work with your batteries as long as they are NiCad. When you go to the "Battery Resurrection Guide" I added a notes link which has notes that might be important for your battery disassembly if you can't Resurrect it using the "Easy Resurrection" one step process.
Question:  From reading your listing, you would not be able to use this on a 24 volt cordless lawnmower battery. It is like a car battery, so you can not get to each cell, is this correct. Answered on Jun-03-05
Answer: That is correct. The subject battery would also need to be a NiCad, not a lead acid type. Tinkering with a lead acid battery can be dangerous.
Question:  How long after a battery is resurrected will it hold a charge before it needs to be resurrected again? Is this a short term fix? Is a referbished or new battery inevidable? Thx Jesse Answered on Jun-06-05
Answer: The length of time a resurrected battery lasts depends upon the condition of the resurrected cells to begin with. Sometimes weeks, sometimes days. If a cell is on it's last legs to begin with, then resurrection will enable you to charge the battery and use it, but it might only last a day or so. If you read the feedback and testimonials you will get an idea of others success.
Question:  HOWDY RICKARD. IN YOUR AD YOU INCLUDED MAKITA 12. I BOUGHT YOUR BATTERY RESURRECTION. AND IT SOUNDS GREAT. I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY IT. THE ONLY PROBLEM I'M HAVING IS, HOW DO YOU GET THE MAKITA BATTERY PACK APART? THANK YOU: JIM Answered on Jun-11-05
Answer: If the makita can't be disassembled you need to use the easy resurrection one step process.
Question: Hi, Is this applicable for makita a Ni-MH battery. Thanks. Answered on Jun-11-05
Answer: I've had one customer write me and say that he resurrected his NiMH phone battery. If you decide to try it let me know what the results are. I don't know if it will work.
Question:  I have a DeWalt 18v XR2 pack and upon opening the plastic housing I see some corrosion, is there any hope for using your 'system'? Answered on Jun-11-05
Answer: If one of the cells has leaked just a tiny bit, you might be able to resurrect it, but if there is a lot of corrosion then you could replace the leaking cell or use this battery for parts for other batteries that need a cell replaced. The guide has a section for replacing leaking cells as of 11-18-05.
Question:  Hello, Will this product work on a craftsman battery that will not accept a charge or at least one in which the charger will no longer charge? Answered on Jun-11-05
Answer: That is the intent of battery resurrection. You will need a volt meter and a couple other common items. The "Battery Resurrection Guide" will show you how to do the resurrection. It works on most batteries just as you describe.
Question:  Hi, will this work with dewalt xrp batteries? Thanks. Answered on Jun-14-05
Answer: The 3 step process should work with all NiCad batteries as long as the internal cells have not been ruined in some way or are factory defects.
Question:  I have a black and decker battery operated lawnmower(model cm1000). It uses 24 volts. It does not hold the charge as good as when it was new. Will your product fix this problem? Answered on Jun-18-05
Answer: I don't know. If it is a lead acid battery then it won't work for you. If it is a nicad battery and you can open it to access the cells inside then it will probaby work.
Question:  How many times can this work on the same battery ? Jun-20-05
Answer: over and over again. I've resurrected versapak about 6 times and they seem to last longer each time.
Question:  it will work for any battery? Bosch? black and decker? Jun-21-05
Answer: Correct, the process is the same for all nicad batteries.
Question:  does this work on milwaukee 18 volt power plus batterys i have two dead ones that won't take a charge haven't thrown away yet. sounds like could save them and save some money thanks Jun-26-05
Answer: Battery Resurrection works on all NiCad Batteries with a 98% success rate.
Question:  Will this work with both versapak silver and gold? I have several very dead silver...how much more life can I expect from them? Jun-26-05
Answer: The silver are nicad and those have really responded well and are simple to resurrect. It seems like the more times I resurrect my versapak batteries the longer the resurrection lasts. If you read the story on the auction about versapak you will see. I think the gold are NiMH and I'm not sure if they will work. Please let me know if they do resurrect for you.
Question:  how do I specify which battery? Jun-28-05
Answer: The process is the same for all NiCad batteries. The different brands in the title are just for searching.

Question: Would I need to own or purchase any other items to bring life back to the rechargable products I own? Thanks! Tim Jul-07-05
Answer: Hi Tim, You will need a volt meter and a few common household items and you will have a 98% chance of success to bring new life to you nicad batteries.

Question:  HI, I need an item like you are selling for several power tool batteries. My only concern is what equipment, parts... are needed to use the directions you are selling? If you can't give me a specific list, can you tell me how many (aside from the "clips" for the # of cells) parts I'll need and the approximate cost of them - or if they are standard household items. Thank you Jul-09-05
Answer: You will need a volt meter and a couple household items. I am selling a step by step online "battery resurrection guide" with a 98% success rate for nicad batteries.

Question:  Is there soldering involved? I've had my Ryobi 12V batteries apart and everything is soldered together. I am mechanically inclined, but can't solder worth a crap. Jul-12-05
Answer: Battery resurrection does not require replacing any cells 98% of the time. Occassionaly someone has a battery that has a cell that is a factory defect and will not resurrect and that is the only time it needs to be replaced. The guide has a section showing how to replace a cell it you want to.
Question:  Noticed that you have different sales items for different company batteries. I'm interested in the Black & Decker Versapak cells as shown in your example and the Mikita 9.6v battery. Will purchasing one of your items tell me how to bring back both types of batteries or do I have to purchase separate items for each different type of NiCad battery. Your Q&A imply only one purchase is necessary for 98% of any brand NiCad battery. Jul-13-05

Answer: Battery resurrection works 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. If your battery has the typical nicad problem then it will work and resurrection should last a long time, but the only way to know for sure is to try resurrecting it.
Question:  hiya! i just wanted to clarify, after i "resurrect" the battery, do i then utilize the charger that the battery came with to do subsequent charges? or do i have to "resurrect" the battery according to your technique everytime the battery looses charge? Jul-29-05
Answer: Hello ruedawg00, You will resurrect the battery and then charge as usual. If and when the battery goes back to is weak state then you would resurrect again and then charge as usual. Charge over and over and then resurrect only when necessary. Rickcad

Question:  I own a couple of Dewalt 12v batteries that don't hold a charge overnight. Unlike the photos shown, my batteries don't have screws in the top. Any idea how to open up the casing? Aug-10-05
Answer: Included in the guide is an easy resurrection method that does not require opening the batteries.
Question:  is there a way to charge up a dead cell? Aug-14-05
Answer: Most batteries that will not charge have a dead cell inside. That is different than a defective cell from the factory which happens about 1 out of a hundred. The battery resurrection guide will help you fix a dead cell, but not a defective cell. Therefore, you can get new life from most dead Nicad batteries.
Question:  do you tell how to get into the battery its self?? Aug-18-05
Answer: Opening the battery is fully illustrated in the Battery Resurrection Guide. If it is a sealed battery then you would use the easy resurrection method.
Question:  Hi - I've got two 19.2 and several 15.6 craftsman batteries that the chargers say are 'defective'. Would these instructions help in getting them back on their feet? Also - how much equipment (granted.. no specifics) will one need to utilize to bring these back to life? Your feedback looks great, I really just want some idea if the product will help me get some more time out of these newer packs. Thanks Much! Casey Pierce Aug-19-05
Answer: You will need a volt meter and you have the rest of the items needed. I think you will find that after Resurrection you will be able to charge those nicad batteries.
Question:  Is this method just opening the battery compartment find the dead cell and replace it with a new one and than charging it. Aug-19-05
Answer: If I was just telling people to replace a dead cell with a new one the feedback would be very angry. LOL About one out of a hundred bad cells are defective and then replacement would be the only option. It is about resurrecting the dead cells, so the battery will take a charge again and have strong power. There is no cutting or soldering involved.
Question:  Hello I have black and decker and dewalt batterys sice they interchange on both my dewalt and black and decker drills I went out and looked at the batteries and only one of them are a sealed battery the rest have screws in the bottom I'm assuming I will not be able to ressurect the one that is sealed?Or will I be able to? Thanks dan Aug-22-05
Answer: The guide includes an "easy resurrection" method that you can use for the sealed battery.
Question:  Does this prosses require disconnecting individual cells? Thank you pat7804 Sep-03-05
Answer: No. You do not disconnect the cells. Rickcad
Question:  I use Craftsman 315.11080 NiCad 9.6V batteries with a Craftsman 974511-001 Professional Fast Charger. After about two years, the battery charger indicates a "defective battery." After four years of owning this drill, I now have FOUR 9.6V batteries that all show as "defective" when put into the charger. Will your process work in this situation so that I can rejuvenate these four batteries? Thanks. Bob Sep-04-05
Answer: Hello Bob, Battery resurrection works 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. You can apply the process as often as needed. Your Craftsman batteries are excellent candidates for resurrection. This should work for you. Rick
Question:  does this work on the Ni-MH batteries? Sep-05-05
Answer: I know it works on NiCad. I don't know about NiMH batteries, but one testimonial said that if fixed his NiMH camcorder battery and I have someone else trying it now on a few 14.4 batteries he says are NiMH. I'm still waiting to hear from him.
Question:  I have some Ryobi 18V batteries that don't hold a charge very long. Other than being able to access the cells, what else is involved with the resurrection process? Does it require special tools, special materials etc? Thanks Sep-08-05
Answer: Some batteries need a special torx bit. There is a link on the guide to get one. The guide has an easy resurrection that does not require opening the battery. You will need a volt meter.
Question:  Hello, I can access my Porter Cable batteries fine but they are all spot welded together with sections of metal straping that can't easily be separated and rewelded by any means I can think of or have access to. Is this arrangement a problem when using your system? Sep-10-05
Answer: You do not disconnect the cells in any way. No cutting no soldering. Access to the cells is all you need. Rick
Question:  Do you guarantee? David Sep-10-05
Answer: No guarantee because it was being abused. About 1 out of 100 batteries are factory defects that cannot be resurrected. About 98% are successful. A few buyers did not follow the guide and then blamed the process instead of themselves, but, in most cases, success was acheived after corrections.
Question:  Does this work w/ Lithium batteries, and/or non-rechargeable alkaline such as watch batteries? I hope these aren’t rhetorical questions. Thanks. Sep-12-05
Answer: No. Only works with NiCad batteries.

Question: If you resurrect a battery and after extended use the battery is low again can you resurrect this same battery again or is it a one-time process. Sep-20-05
Answer: Battery resurrection works 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. You can apply the process as often as needed.

Question:. I have several Black and Decker Firestorm 14.4V batteries, type A9276. When I put them in my charger (the 1hr fast one), they show that the battery is fully charged, yet when I put them in a drill, it does nothing. Will your resurrection process fix this?
Answer: Battery resurrection works 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. You can apply the process as often as needed. I'm surprised that the drill does nothing. Usually, it will turn slowly and you can easily stop the chuck with your hand. Check the voltage output on your charger to be sure your charger is working. If it is then Resurrection should work for you where you can't hold the chuck with your hand.
Question:  Will this work on batteries that will not take any charge? I have 2 ea 14.4 volt craftsman bat that won't charge. Sep-28-05
Answer: Battery resurrection works 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. You can apply the process as often as needed. I think you will be surprised at how your dead battery will come back to life and be usable again. It almost always works.
Question:  I have drill batteries that I paid to have reconditioned by batteries plus, but it really did not make them work. They worked for one charge cycle and now they won't hold a charge again. What are the chances that your system will help? Mike Oct-01-05
Answer: I don't know what they did to recondition your battery, so I don't have an answer for that issue. Battery resurrection works about 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. You can apply the process as often as needed.

Question:  G'day, I just want to be sure about what tools I need to resurect a battery with your guide. All I need it a voltmeter and access to cells within my drill pack? Im not real good with electronics so I just want to be sure Im not getting in over my head. I checked my drill battery pack and looks to be held together by screws. Let me know. Thanks Michael.

Question:  Hello, I have 4 craftsman 18v NiCads. 3 will not accept a charge from the charger. The charger tells me they are bad and will not even begin to charge them. Will your approach work to fix them? Thanks, Tom Oct-09-05
Answer: The charger rejects the battery because it has shorted cells. Resurrection will allow it to charge again. You will be amazed.
Question:  In your QA you say you need access to the individual cells. To expand on that, do the cells have to be disconnected from each other? I ask because mine are soldered together and I've had problems resoldering then in the past. Oct-11-05
Answer: The ribbon wire is spot welded to the cells. You should not solder on the cells because of the heat. The cells should not be disconnected. Resurrection is done while they are together.
Question:  Hi, I have several worn out DeWALT 12v XR (200132-S0) batteries that seems to have the cells sealed into a plastic case with no way to remove them. I read on your listing that the cells need to be removed, do the instructions include a dissassemble proceedure or any money back guarantee if it doesn't work on these batteries? I read your feedback reviews, has anybody that you know of revitalized these DeWALT batteries? Many thanks Bob Toronto Oct-13-05
Answer: There is no way to know what kind of abuse a battery has been through so there is no guarantee. The easy resurrection method should be used on your batteries and there is no need to open them. If they are nicad, it should work unless they are factory defects and have been over heated. The testimonials page will have the best feedback for your batteries.
Question:  I have two DeWalt 18V batteries. They still hold a chage but do not have enough power and do not last long. They are around 6 years old. Would these be good candidates for you system? Thanks, Jeremy Oct-17-05

Question:  Hi, my name's Keith. I read lots of positive feedback but am still skeptical. I have two craftsman batteries (14.4v #1322531) that work only for about 2-3 screws in my cordless drill, was wondering if this will work on them. I can easily remove the screws to access the individual cells. Is there anything other than a voltmeter (which I have) that I need to purchase to bring them back to life? I am very interested because I'm ready to shove these up Sear's nose because I don't feel I have used them enough for them to be no good anymore. Please reply. Thanks! Nov-05-05
Answer: Hello Keith, Battery resurrection works about 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. You can apply the process as often as needed. The other items you need for resurrection you already have. From what you describe, you have the perfect candidates for battery resurrection. Also, read the testimonials.
Question:  Hi, Does this work on one battery or can you resurrect multiple batteries for the price.Thanks Rick Nov-06-05

Question: This is a very interesting concept. Does it work on laptop batteries? Mine doesn't have any screws to get inside. are there any special tools needed? is the volt meter required? Nov-11-05
Answer: Battery resurrection works about 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. You can apply the process as often as needed. I have no way to tell if it will work or not. It will not work with Li-ion batteries. If the battery is NiCad and does not have electronics inside then I would guess it will work. You will need a volt meter and a few household items.
Question: Does your system tell you where to buy needed parts. Does it tell you how to figure out if the cells (1.5) are good or bad and how to change the bad ones? Thanks for you answer and help. Harry Nov-17-05
Answer: I just added a new section to the guide about cell replacement for those few that are not successful resurrecting their batteries. It includes a method of getting replacement cells for free.
Question:  Hi, i am interested in your battery resurrection. I was wondering what kind of success rate you have had with the black and decker 18volt slide-on type batteries that come with most of the combo kits now. I partially disasembled one of them to see if i could get to each individual cell, but it looks like i cannot get to all of them without taking it completely apart. Please let me know if you have had any experience with this particular battery and if there is a certain procedure for it on your website. thanks for your help
Answer: Battery resurrection works about 98% of the time for all NiCad batteries and the time resurrection lasts depends upon the condition of your battery to start with. You can apply the process as often as needed.
You can try the easy resurrection because you don't need to open the battery. I don't have experience with the slide type but my guess is that it is just a new configuration to obsolete the post style.
