Often it can be extremely difficult to find cordless drill replacement batteries, especially if your cordless drill is an older model out of production. It seems many stores do not carry older battery packs just to entice you to buy the latest new drill, well, lets not let that happen. This article is here to help you find a battery pack.
When you get frustrated looking for a replacement battery and end up at a dead end, use these two tips to get back on track.
Have the model number for your drill. This number should be located somewhere on your drill, and represents the serial number of the product. You can use this number to help you find the appropriate battery as many online stores list replacement batteries with the number in the listing.
If using the drill’s model number doesn’t work then a better idea is to find the serial number on the battery pack. Doing a search for this number almost always returns a good result.
These are just two tips on how you can better your search for cordless drill batteries.
