PUT THE LIFE BACK IN YOUR OLD NiCd BATTERIES!
What is NiCd Memory Effect?
Memory effect, also known as lazy battery effect or battery memory, is an effect observed in
nickel cadmium (NiCd) rechargeable batteries that causes them to hold less charge. It describes one
very specific situation in which certain NiCd batteries gradually lose their maximum energy
capacity if they are repeatedly recharged after being only partially discharged. The battery
appears to "remember" the smaller capacity. This memory effect is caused by buildup of
crystalline formations on the cell plates which increase resistence and lower the voltage of the affected cells.
How do we stop Memory Effect?
Using a volt meter and the simple techniques outlined in "The Weekender's Guide: NiCd battery restoration" you can reset / reverse the symptoms of Memory effect and repair your old NiCd batteries.
Drill batteries cost 100's of dollars to replace. Most of the time it is actually cheaper to buy a new tool with two new batteries than it is to replace the old batteries for your tools. What options do you have? You can scour the internet or classified ads and possibly find yourself some used or refurbished units but eventually you will start to experience the same problems you are exeriencing now.
What about Lithium Ion Batteries?
Lithium Ion batteries are the latest craze in powertools. It is true that Lithium Ion batteries are new to power tools but the technology itself is not as new as people may believe or maybe lead to believe by power tool companies. Lithium Ion batteries are not prone to "Memory Effect" which is a huge plus vs NiCd. However Lithium ion batteries have a much shorter lifespan than NiCd. Typically a user can expect 3 years of use from a lithium ion cell before it dies. For a heavy power tool user like a contractor or industry professional this is probably acceptable as they will more than likely be in the market for a new tool before that time anyways. But what about us regular guys? The DIY guys or home users. In 3 years I have used my power drill only a handfull of times. Is it nesscary to buy a new power drill every three years? Ofcourse not. NiCd batteries are a much better fit for the occasional user. The trick is learning how to maintain and properly care for your NiCd powered tools.
