Rebuilt Battery Packs "Better Than New"
If you have a power tool battery pack that’s gone bad, you don’t have to replace it. You can rebuild it instead, and it should be more powerful than ever.

“We rebuild more than 1,000 battery packs a month,” says Peter Peterson, Voltman Batteries. “We rebuild any brand. You will receive your original case back with brand new batteries on the inside.”

Peterson says the batteries are rebuilt better than the original. All connections between batteries are spot welded instead of soldering, which can create heat and damage cells.

“We’ve invested more than $10,000 in each of our welding systems,” he adds. “Each strap receives several spot welds to ensure the best connection.”

Rebuilt 2100 mAh NICAD batteries receive a 90-day warranty. The larger 3300 mAh NIMH rebuild offers 60 percent more run time than the original and carries a 180-day warranty. Peterson claims the rebuild will outlast lithium batteries.

All old batteries are recycled. The company claims to recycle more than a million pounds of batteries each year.

Cost of rebuilding varies by power. Prices range from $25 to $140. Any Nicad battery 9 to 18 volts is $50. Voltman Batteries will rebuild and return the pack within 2 to 4 weeks. We do not rebuild lithium batteries. Same-day-turn-around service for a $20 premium is also available.

“Just prepay by phone or online, or enclose a check with the battery,” says Peterson. “We will replace every cell with new high drain cells, and when you get it back, it will be better than new.”
