No idea about getting your drill working again... but I have a 14.4v cordless hitachi drill you're welcome to borrow if you're anywhere near southampton....

When my 12v drills batteries died I wired in a lead with a cigarette lighter plug on the end - then you can plug it into the car or a portable jump start pack - will last hours and the drill is much lighter with no battery!!!

I am constantly surprised how quickly portable power products batteries seem to fade, and not hold charge.

Hmmm a cordless drill which isn't cordless

I have one of them too, plugs into a thing on the wall and lasts for ages

Ahh but try using it 1 mile away from a power socket - a jump start unit is much easier than a genny!!!
