Ni-Cd? I thought they stopped making them over 10 years ago due to the toxic problem of disposing of cadmium. Ni-Cd are ok if you use them all the time but leaving them standing for long periods causes them to deteriorate, not only will they be flat when you go to use them they might not even accept a charge. Personally wouldn't buy.

That's true but I'm sure it was given as the reason they stopped making them, I believe cadmium is worse and there were problems with it getting in streams and rivers. We used to use them for model cars and aircraft and they could deliver more current than any NiMH cell I came across.

Either way the memory effect and quick self discharge suffered by Ni-Cd makes them nearly useless for casual DIY tools, they will be dead when you come to use them

I forget technical reason why they stop using Ni-cd batteries :| ? ? ?

O thats right memory loss. Now I remember, yes the batteries suffered from memory loss oO
