Whats the best source for HT battery pack inserts or rebuild battery packs?

I have an EBP-10N I need to fix. havent had luck in soldering individual cells to replace bad ones in the past.

I've had excellent results buying pre-made packs from The NiCad Lady. They'll even install the inserts if you send them the dead pack. Very good prices, and outstanding service!

Charles, if you replace individual cells in a pack you will probably be wasting your money. The new cells won't be charging/discharging the same way that the old ones do, so the old/new cells wind up "fighting" each other and the entire pack will never work as well as simply replacing the whole thing.

Since new cells keep coming out with more power for less price, replacing old cells is even more of a loosing proposition. Most of the old commercial packs are cheap 600-700mAh AA's and you can rpelace them with new 1800-2200mAh cells, tripling your running time for just a few bucks more than the cost of the old cells.

Charles,
Give batteriesamerica.com a try. I just ordered an new 2200 mah pack for my Yeasu FT 530 for $28. I was pleased to say the least.
Take care

As stated previously,

                1. www.nicdlady.com

    The NiCD Lady

                has inserts and can rebuild a battery pack.

                2. www.ebatterytech.com

     Battery-Tech, Inc. is another alternative.

                NiCd Lady is in California; Battery-Tech is in New York.

                I've had good luck from both companies.
