Battery no longer holds a charge

The 18v batteries for my RIGID tools (drill and reciprocating saw) no longer hold a charge.

The charger even signals that one (I have 2 packs) of the batteries is defective (blinking red & green lights).

Do I have to replace the packs (over $100 each) or can I possibly replace the cells inside the packs?

Thanks in advance,

Paul

paulk524, you can replace the cells. Take a look on here . Biggest issue will be to open the battery pack. Once you have it opened, the repair will be similar to this Repairing a Cordless Drill Battery or this one Repairing Black and Decker - TS221 Ranger CD2000 Battery Should cost you no more than around $40 to rebuild the battery. Hope this helps, good luck.

The charger blink red & green lights when charging the battery. I think the batteries is dead. You can replace the cells inside the packs. This is inexpensive.

But, you can get a replacement battery for is. The replacement one is as good as the GENUINE. And, the price is low.

You drill battery maybe died.  You can get a replacement one for your drill.  Or, you also get repack battery cells. But you nned to open the battery case and replace the cell for yourself. The cells is cheaper than battery pack.
