Modus thanks for your tip about sticking the battery in the freezer.
It worked a treat.
Awesome tip.
Thanks Tam.

Hi....as per my knowledge rechargeable batteries can be brought back to some kind of service life buy cycling them through 3 or 4 DEEP CYCLE discharges and recharges.Charge them up as much as they'll take, and leave them for 6 or 12 hours still charging. If the voltage is up full there is usually very little current so therefore there isn't any heat. Also hooking a light bulb across them to bring them down again till the bulb is dim and then charging them up to full charge again, leaving them on for another 6 or 12 hours and then cycling them down again with the light bulb and recharging them a third time, to full charge, and leaving them for another 6 to 12 hours to give them a true full charge and it might last another 6 months or year.

Hi...i am a new user here. I will suggest drain it completely and throw in the freezer for a day. Then let it thaw out for a day and charge it. Apparently it removes"the memory effect. Don't know about that last part, but it does give you a little more life, worked on some 9.6V Makita batteries.
