I had two Makita 14.4 V NiMH batteries that my relatively-smart chargers said were bad. My other two batteries charged OK so it was not the chargers that were at fault. A local battery service up north said the bats were OK. Well, they may have been OK in his charger but they didn't work in mine. And with several devices that use these bats, and with the two good bats I already had and two chargers, it was worthwhile for me to fix these rather than abandoning it all and getting a whole new system.

MTO Battery ReBuilders in Pennsylvania fixed 'em for $72 for the two. So far they work fine. I have used these guys before with success. Also they were quick. Check their website or call them first; don't send in your bats until you have their authorization (which means you pay them up front, but it is worth it). Recommended by me.

What type of batteries were they?
I have an old Bosch 18V drill & impact set that uses "Blue Core" 2.4Ah Ni-Cd batteries.
There's a ton of after-market batteries out there, But a true Bosch "Blue Core" battery runs about $100!
