Batteries do need to be replaced periodically, and they can fail prematurely. I have heard stories of 1000 charges as the life of a batt, such as drill batss, etc. I have NEVER gotten that much out of mine. How old is the tool/batt?? If you have had it a long time, might be time for a new batt.

you could also have a bad charger, bad chargers will say the battery is good to go when it fact its not

Also NI-CAD batteries need to be fully discharged before they are charged again or they will develope a "memory". Meaning that they will lose power before they should. And, if they are not charged for a long time they will fail. They need a full discharge and charge at least once a month.

ummm no, as soon as you notice the speed at which a tool operates or how much power it is operating with it should be charged. this is straight from the guys at the tool repair centers for various manufactuers

lith ion batteries should be fully drained
