Drill Battery

Drill Battery Photos

I love the Dewalt XRP drills. I don't like that after 4 years the battery goes dead really fast and that the replacement batteries are $70. I bought some new cells and replaced them myself. They're not pretty, but neither is the drill after 4 years of abuse.

Time: 2 hours

Cost: $30 for new cells. Enough for 2 battery packs.

Equipment/Tools Used: Soldering Iron, screwdrivers

Level of Difficulty: (What's with the saws?)
