I know some really cheap people, some amaze me at the extent that they go to save even 10 cents. One acquaintance of mine just grabs a diet coke from my garage fridge every time he comes for his wife, because he is to cheap to buy them for her. I got rid of the fridge, so that will not happen anymore. Cheap skates suck! So when I saw the article on How to rebuild a DeWALT 14.4 battery pack from Instructables.com , my first thought was what the hell for? Then I remembered the cheap skates. They would rather risk a fire than have to pay an extra penny for anything.
TIA DOES NOT RECOMMEND rebuilding your battery packs because of the risk of a bad connection or fire. However its a good read!
