Reviving Ni-Cad Batteries

Did you know you could do this? I didn't. Turns out when your Ni-Cad batteries for your tools get tired, there's a very good chance you can revive them.

Here's the video from Instructables. Go to the site for detailed instructions.

Sometimes I love the randomness posts. I have an 18 volt drill with one battery pack that needs reviving. Now all I need is a welding rig and a functioning voltmeter.

Well, the site actually says you need at least 24V for that battery. I have two good 19V batteries I'm going to use to jump start two bad 18V batteries. So you don't need a welding rig. I do recommend the voltmeter though.
