I have a cordless drill here that the battery pack has died on. After cracking it open (dead anyway) it's just filled with 12 x 1.2V 1200mAh Ni-Cd batteries to total 14.4V.
My question is if I replace them with higher rated 1.2V Ni-Mh batteries, say 2000 or 2200mAh will the original charger for the drill be ok?
The output on the chargers label is 15.0V DC 400MA.
PS I know cordless drills are as cheap as chips these days or I could get them refilled at a battery joint, but it's more of a Cup Day project than anything else...
