Power tool batteries and maintenance
Anyone else drain their niCD batteries completely before recharging them?
While liIon have no memory effect the suck when they're old and just die. I have 6 niCD batteries and they're beasts. I've had them several years and always run them in my drill with the trigger taped on till they die completely. It's a bit extreme but that's why I don't need to replace my $80 a piece batteries.
Any suggestions on a better way to discharge these batteries? They're ridgid 18volts
