The old Makita stick batteries can still be found here, too - albeit from pattern battery sellers. BTW, that Makita may well quite a bit older than 20 years (possibly another 5 to 10 years old) because by 1999 Makita 9.6 volt drills had gone over to a more conventional battery shape

You'd think that Makita would know if they were NiCad or NiMh, or at least have a pic of a NiCad. :shock:

You could still get that shape later on I've got a Makita 6095DWE I bought in 2004. Batteries are long dead now of course, although they lasted well really, I was going to get a couple, but I saw a Lidl one for £25 or something before I got around to it, and that's been an excellent tool for the use I've given it.

Its a ni-cad replacement

"Compatible with Ni-Cad and Ni-MH chargers" so it must have some internal circuit to fool the charger/control charging
