makita_battery.jpgHow many times has this happened to you: you've got a nice old drill, you've had it for years and years, you love the drill, you've named the drill, you've willed it to your firstborn. But then one day you notice the battery starting to slow down, then a few months down the line, it's really slow, then a few weeks after that, nothing. If you're lucky, the battery is still being produced and you can go buy a new one. If you're unlucky, well, then a perfectly capable tool goes in the trash.

Enter Battery-Tek, a small company in California that rehabs your old batteries. So when yours goes dead, you just send it to them and they take it apart, replace the cells, put it back together, test it, and send it back. It's a great service and it beats buying a new tool.

And if we're reading the Battery-Tek website correctly, what they do is actually upgrade your batteries, with their goal being a tool that performs better than the day you bought it.

The website is very helpful with all kinds of battery information and a price lists. It looks like they also sell batteries, chargers, and accessories. And it seems like a friendly operation too: "Want to talk to me about your batteries: call Bob at 510-393-7700."

Our guess is that Bob knows a lot about batteries.
