- Before continuing PLEASE open your battery case and look at your cells inside.
- Do they look like the picture in the V1 screw pattern of the battery case? V1 only has screws around the perimeter.
- OR does it look like the V2 which has 1 single screw in front of the pod that goes into the tool.
- These NiCd batteries have SUB-C cells inside the battery housing
- They will either be SUB-C STANDARD or COMPACT cells
- Typical model numbers are as follows. Don't see your model number listed? Please contact us to confirm before ordering
- V1 STANDARD SUB-C model #: DC9096 | DE9096 | DW9099
- V2 STANDARD SUB-C model #: DW9095
- V1 COMPACT SUB-C model #: DC9098 | DC9099
- V2 COMPACT SUB-C model #: DW9098
REPLACEMENT INTERNALS MODEL NUMBERS MUST MATCH YOUR BATTERY

We have NiMH UPGRADE options for your NiCd battery!
Will your charger work with an upgraded NiMH replacement?
While it's permissible to use a NiCd charger, you should not leave these batteries on the charger for extended periods of time. They should be removed as soon as the indicator light shows "charged". The reason behind this is that the "Trickle Charge" rate of that specific charger is designed for NiCd batteries, so it's a hair too steep for NiMH. If these packs were left on the charger for extended periods of time (overnight to several days), the high trickle charge rate could overcharge the batteries and would essentially "bleed" off capacity. That leads to accelerated wear on the cell chemistry and decreased cycle life. On a side note, even NiCd batteries should not be left on the charger for extended periods of time. That inevitably leads to "memory effect" and decreased lifespan of the pack.
