If I have a Ni-Cd (Nickel-Cadmium) battery, can I use Ni-Mh (Nickel-Metal-Hydride) cells?
Currently there is no sale of batteries based on Ni-Cd cells, they are replaced by Ni-Mh cells which are less harmful to the environment. These cells can be used interchangeably, so we can use the Ni-Mh battery in exchange for the Ni-Cd battery.
If I have an old charger, will it charge the new one?
In this case, pay attention to the type of cells used in the battery. If you plan to purchase a Li-Ion (lithium ion) battery and have previously used a battery with Ni-Mh (nickel methyl hydride) or Ni-Cd (nickel cadmium) cells, the new battery will not be charged by our charger and you will need to purchase a suitable charger.
A screwdriver is one of the most commonly used power tools in various repair and construction jobs. Due to the increased frequency of use, the battery pack is subjected to a higher load. As a result, the equipment becomes increasingly outdated over time and begins to fail to perform the seemingly simple tasks. Semi-functional equipment is not very helpful. It will cause a lot of downtime that is not so frustrating that it will affect the end result by interfering with other tasks. The batteries in Metabo screwdrivers have a long service life, but are not immortal. From time to time it is worth taking a closer look at the batteries and accumulators in power tools. If the tool fails, this is a clear signal that it is high time to look for a new battery.
