    Default Ni-Mh battery to replace a Ni-Cd?

    I have an aged but still excellent Panasonic cordless drill. It uses Ni-Cd batteries. It is possible to get a Ni-Mh battery to fit. They are not much more expensive and have a 3000 Ah as opposed to the 2000 Ah of the Ni-Cd. I believe that my battery charger will charge it. Is this doable and is there any "risk"?

    Regards from Perth

    Hi Derek,

    I went down this path with a Makita last year. Knowing what I know now I should have ditched the originals years ago and started using Ni-Mh replacements earlier. Faaaantastic

    I didn't have any issue using my original Makita charger as it was compatible with both battery types to start with.

    Cheers, Franklin
