About a two years ago I purchased a cheap$13 PowerproKraft Cordless Drill, 7.2Volt made in China 5-2007, that now has a bad battery that will only hold a charge for an hour or two after being charged overnight. I knew this was crappy HF type quality but the plastic gears etc. should be ok for the very light use - and it had the reverse that was needed. I assumed that battery technology had advanced enough that it would be the same no matter what I bought.
Guess I was mistaken.
Any remedy ? Is there a $5 replacement? Run it off a cord? Rebuild battery? Run it off a charger? I really like the keyless chuck, size, shape etc.
