    probably not and its normally cheaper to buy a new drill than replacement batteries. There are a couple of sites that do replacements and I also found this, but no idea if it is viable

    That was pretty good, he said all the right things, especially the danger.

    That toggle switch was plain stupid, won't last a week.

    You also need cheap donor batteries and an expensive RC model charger which is not suitable for everyday work.

    But as shown it would work.

    When that video finished it linked to this which is even more workable:

    Don't know how much luck you will have trying to restore them unless one of the ideas above works.

    You can get replacements easily enough http://www.drill-battery.co.uk/cordless/battery.php/BOSCH but some of them are bloody expensive. Depends on the drill. It may be a better idea to get a new one.

    If it's got new style battery's , I've heard they don't like charge in a cold place like a shed.

    I have a couple of De Walt drills, 12volt and 18volt. I can buy a new De Walt, with two new batteries, plus charger, for less then the price of two replacement batteries.......
