    As fondles I have the same both around 3years old, the 14,4v is still ok but the 18v which is a hammer drill also had both batteries die inthe last 4 month tried ordering new from the supplier IQ in surin but still no joy, daughter is coming over this week from UK but she was quoted 74 gbp for one battery DE9096. I said leave it as just as well to buy another drill as the price has dropped since i bought the original.
    Very good drill and done a lot of work.But as usual here back serivice is poor.

    Look online for an 18v dc transformer, take the battery out of it's case and wire the transformer in and you have a drill. Not cordless, but working.

    555 it works..did that with an old B&D for use on my boat...8v on 12v worked okay.

    Got a couple of old cordless drills ...dead batts.. in nice plastic cases...gonna fix 'em someday maybe....lot less hassle to buy a new one ....meantime just roll out the extension cord.

    There is an electronics shop in Phuket town that supplies various battery packs ( just the guts)...so would require some work to fit into battery housing /cartridge.

    Motor and trigger unit I think the brushes wore down and that effected the trigger unit. I should really have been checking the brushes. The clutch mechanism is also fecked.

    Batteries have been re-celled twice but they still work. Lets see what Husky has to say as he doesn't have any battery.

    BTW re-celling costs 2500 baht.

    Now have Bosch 18v Li-Ion.

    For shop use we have a B&D 12v which runs on a 7 Ah 12v battery, with leads. This is quite a common conversion especially among rock climbers who use a "Sam Browne" type harness to carry the batteries.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all

    Yeah my 18v shit a trigger. Dewalt Thailand would not repair (said parts not available) so I purchased a trigger from Ebay for $20.00.

    I gave up on ni-cad drills for home and am now using AEG 12v Li-Ion drill. for the 5k it cost it is an absolute beauty and the battery last well between charges. am looking to buy it's big brother 18v Li-ion version.

    If Husky don't want you batteries I'll grab as handy to have a few more spare.

    Hi VN if you still have them at a reasonable price I would be happy to have them. but would need to arrange a place to collect them or have a friend collect them as postal here only arrives once in a blue moon. I am about 50 kl from Surin, where are you based ?

    Hi

    May I know the name of the shop in Phuket town which could possibly re-cell battery pack for a de Walt? I have a great drill that was brand new, never used for years, not obsolete batteries and will not charge
