I have a DeWalt 18V nicad 4 tool set and I was thinking about rebuilding my own battery packs. My question is about soldering the tabs on the new sub C batteries.
The tabs are attached on the factory packs with a spot welder and I was wondering how difficult it is to hand solder them instead. I know how to solder but I'm wondering how sensitive these sub C nicads are to heat and if it is practical and effective to solder them by hand. Anyone rebuilt their's successfully ?

Interested in this also - have a dead DeWalt cordless that I'd like to revive. Any howtos out there? Where do you get the batteries?
