Introduction: Painting Your Cordless Drill Battery

Hey everyone

I decided to make a instructables for my cordless drill paint job.

I have an old cordless drill from Bosch but the batteries weren't what they used to be...
So I decided to buy new ones, and because I wanted to know which were the new one and which the old batteries are, I came on the idea to paint the new ones in a nice color :) .

Step 1: Taping

First I covered al the parts that I didn't wanted to paint, like the electrical points, the name blade, the technical information ect.

Step 2: Sanding

Then I sanded the areas that I wanted to paint lightly with a 120 grid, both the batteries and the charger.
Be careful with the ventilation slots of the batterie charger, tape them very careful off.

Step 3: Painting

Then I painted the batteries and the charger with a coat of red spray paint.

I was afraid if the tone of the red color would match with the red from the logo from Bosch but the end result was amazing in my opinion.

Step 4: Drying

After the painting I let it dry for a couple of hours and then I went over it with a high grid sanding paper and gave it another coat of paint and let it dry again.

Step 5: Final Result

I was very happy with the final result and after all it didn't took that long.

I hope I could give a little inspiration to other people ;)
