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 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.

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

Was a newbie, now a Middie.
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.......
