Read this full auction for valuable tips on making your Ni-Cad batteries and chargers last for many years!!!
Get $7 Cash back if you send me your old defective 3-hour B&D charger;
How does this cash back process work?
I send your new charger to you, I include a self addressed label that
you can just tape over the original label I put on the box I just sent
to you. Put your old B&D 3-hour charger in the box. The charger
cannot be altered, such as opening either part of the charger. If
you cut the wires and left at least 2 inches of wire on each portion,
that is OK. Get $3 more for each additional charger sent to me. Then
do either of the following;
1) YOU PAY POSTAGE -
just add postage (parcel post is about $3-$4, but delivery confirmation
is another $1 or so, or use Priority Mail which is $4.95 for a one
pound box). You will get $7 sent back to your PayPal account once I
2) I PAY POSTAGE
- email me and ask me to email you a pre-paid FedEx label. You must
give me the box dimensions and your full mailing address in order for me
to create the label, however. If you use a FedEx box, then just tell
me that, and then the box dimensions are not required. Then just drop
it off at any FedEx or Kinko's office, or put it in any FedEx drop box.
But since I will be paying for the shipping instead of you with this
method, your refund will only be $2.50.

Bid/Buy with Confidence;
I have a 98.5% feedback rating, comprised of over 14,700+ total positive feedbacks.
You don’t get a rating
like that by selling things that don’t work as advertised, or by
treating customers with only the utmost respect!!!!!
I have a Bachelors
Degree in Business (4-year degree) and an Associates Degree in
Electronics Technology (2-year degree), so I am well versed in what I
discuss below. I had a 22-year career with GE Healthcare involving
electronics before I started this eBay business.
Shipping is always via
either USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail, or FedEx 2-3 day air, or FedEx Ground
Home Delivery (either way, you get the tracking number emailed to
you). It is my choice. My auctions are shipped out almost every day of
the week including Saturday, unless something unusual comes up, in which
case they will be shipped out the following business day. Never does it
take more than one extra day for me to ship an item. Overnight service
is available also, for an additional fee (see the shipping section
below for info on that). The shipping listed is for the 50 United States only. For other countries or US Territories, email me for a price quote.
Overnight FedEx service is no longer available;
I usually ship via
FedEx 2-3 day air service, but standard FedEx overnight service is
available for an additional charge (in which case you also get free
insurance coverage up to $500). If you want next-day service, and FedEx
offers it to your address, just choose that option when you pay (you'll
have to use the drop-down box to select “NEXT DAY/Overnight” shipping.
Be sure to give me a NON-PO box address if you want next day service,
since FedEx cannot deliver to PO
boxes (yet!). I was told that they are in negotiations with them to
provide this service now, but do not currently offer it. If standard
overnight service is NOT available to your address, I will refund you
the extra fee paid. This rarely happens, and only occurs to addresses
that are located in very rural locations.
Canada and Mexico Shipments:
These two countries are not too expensive to ship to. To email me, simply click on the “Ask seller a question” link located in the upper right hand corner of this auction page.
You can email me for a quote if you like, but the shipping fees are usually too high to make it worth your while. To email me, simply click on the “Ask seller a question” link located in the upper right hand corner of this auction page.
I must charge STATE sales tax of 5.6% on shipments to Wisconsin locations (or items picked up in Milwaukee). There are no additional shipping or handling fees to pick this item up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin other than the sales tax of 5.6%.
Please give me a CORRECT address and your phone number!!
If the Post Office
cannot locate your address, the item will be returned to me. If this
happens, I can either refund your auction payment (minus the original
shipping fee, the return shipment delivery fee if any, the eBay listing
fee, the selling auction fee and the PayPal fees if any), or I can ship
it to another address if you pay another shipping fee of $4.99. So it is
a good idea to provide me with your phone number in case I need to
contact you. It is also a good idea to be sure your email and physical
addresses on your PayPal and eBay accounts are correct and up to date.
If the FedEx cannot
locate your address, and it is incorrectly given to me, then there will
be a $10 fee charged to you in order to receive your package. That is
what FedEx will charge me, and I just pass the charge on to you for
providing me with an incorrect address. Sorry!
I ***WILL*** combine shipping!
If you would like more
than one of an item on an auction, or win more than one of my auctions,
just contact me by clicking on the "Ask Seller a Question" link in the
upper right-hand portion of this auction page. Usually, the fee is
about $1.49 more per additional pound of weight, but not always. Some
auctions are special. If you wait to pay for all the items you buy at
once, then the combined shipped will be automatically calculated for you
when you attempt to pay for any of the items.
All items may be returned within
7 calendar days of receiving the item. Full refund, minus shipping
fees, will be given once the item is received back in the same working
condition that it was sent to you in. You will be required to respond
to an email from eBay saying that you returned the item (this allows me
to recover my fees from eBay for your auction). All items are sold
as-is. No warranty implied, since these items are electrical in nature,
and lightning could strike your house with this item plugged in. I
can’t be held responsible for situations like that, therefore all items
are sold as-is. My feedback record should show you that I do NOT sell
junk. I test all items thoroughly.
only accept PayPal, per eBay’s new rules. But you can easily pay via
your checking account, Visa or Mastercard through Paypal also. WI residents will be required to pay 5.6% State sales tax. Free Pick Up in Milwaukee, WI.
Email me by clicking on the link entitled "Ask seller a question"
located in the upper right-hand corner of this auction page if you want
to make other arrangements. Please pay within 7 days. If you don’t, a
non-paying bidder report will be filed with eBay.
I will ONLY leave feedback after feedback has been left for me.
Too often I have been threatened with negative feedback after I have
left positive feedback in advance. Sorry about that, but it is what ALL
the savvy sellers on eBay now do!
WARNING ONE! Test your old batteries so they don't put a strain on your charger!
If you try to charge a
defective battery, or an old battery with some defective (shorted)
Ni-Cad cells inside, READ THE BELOW SECTION ABOUT THE BATTERY TEST. I
don't want you to burn out your charger needlessly!
To check whether your
battery is good or not, and to prevent burning out your 3-hour charger,
go to the web page listed below. If you don’t have a voltmeter, try to
find someone who does, as it is the only TRUE way to determine if you
have a good battery or not. Battery
packs are made up of numerous 1.2 volt Ni-Cad cells (10 of them in a
12-volt pack). And if even just one of those ten cells shorts out, it
can cause your charger to burn out. Per the test below, if you try to
determine whether your charger gets "warm" or not, you could make a
terrible mistake and burn out your charger. Not many people can
determine the difference between a "warm" transformer and one that is
WARNING TWO! Beware of other battery sellers on eBay!!!!!!!!
Often, these sellers
have bought batteries that have been on someone’s shelf unsold for many
months or years. A NiCad battery cell has approximately an 18-month
shelf life, if not recharged. If the seller is unwilling to charge the
battery for you, and you want a refund, you may be stuck shipping it
back to them (with you paying shipping back to them, and possibly paying
the shipping for a new battery sent to you).
WARNING THREE! Beware of non-BRAND tools sold on eBay!!!!!!!!
The price may look
good, but wait until the battery pack needs replacing (prematurely, as
often they are made with inferior NiCad cells), or the tool needs
servicing! Try to locate a dealer that sells parts or does repairs! Or
find out FIRST what you have to do to get service, once you pay to ship
it to them for repair! The cheap imports often use cheap materials that
aren’t made to last like name-brand tools.
WARNING FOUR! Beware of “FIX YOUR BATTERY PACK” auctions on eBay!!!!!!!!
I have had numerous
buyers tell me horror stories of auctions that purchased for information
on how to fix their defective battery packs. 1) You can replace NiCad
cells that are bad, BUT YOU CAN’T SOLDER THEM! Heat is NOT a friend to a
NiCad cell… it makes their life MUCH shorter if exposed to excessive
heat. They must be fusion welded, which produces virtually no heat.
Fusion welders are VERY expensive! 2) Yes, there is a trick that you can
apply a high voltage to a cell to “shock” it into pretending to be good
again, BUT THIS IS A VERY TEMPORARY SOLUTION! The cell will very
quickly revert back to its defective status in only a day or two
WARNING FIVE! Be kind to your NiCad batteries, and they will last a long time!!!!!!!!
manufacturer’s recommendations. For most manufacturers, this mean you
NEVER leave your battery pack charging on a 3-hour charger for more than
5 hours (5 hours is needed to charge a battery fully if it has not been
charged in a while)! Those 3-hour chargers constantly charge at .2 amps
to .5 amps, even when fully charged. All that does is heat up the
cells, and remember, heat is NOT a friend of the NiCad cell (see the
below section on 1-hour chargers)! It will make the life of your battery
pack much shorter. If at all possible, buy a timer and set it to be on
for only 3 to 5 hours. You will get much longer life out of the battery
pack that way.
