In this video I'll show you how to bring to life dead NiCd battery from cordless power tools.
Nicd batteries often die in such a way that they won't take a charge and have zero voltage. This usually means they're shorted out by crystal dendrite growth inside Nicd cells. There's a method of bringing them back to life by zapping those shorted crystal dendrites away with too much current and voltage.
