Default help finding Delta Drill Battery 18v

Have a Delta Shopmaster 18v Model CL 180
Battery is Serial # 176037 RN3034

5yrs old. Drill/charger/two batteries. One bat dead other on the way out. Menards( where I bought it), Home depot and Fleet Farm don't carry Delta anymore. Got bought up by Porter Cable. Porter Cable/Delta web site does not have any info on my drill or battery!!!!
Drill is in great shape hate to throw the whole package in the garbage.
Help.
Thanks, Dannyboy

I've gone through 3 different drills just for that reason. I finally picked up a Ridgid, with two batteries-WHICH ARE GUARANTEED FOR LIFE. Got it at Home Depot for around 100 bucks. To me, that was worth it.

Default Crappy web site

Tried calling the Porter Cable/Delta 800 phone #. After hours, but directed me to Dewalt website. All of these companies are evidentally merged together? All have the CRAPPIEST unavigatable websites!

What bateries will cross-reference with my unit? I'll buy any bateries that will work. Nothing at the store will fit the drill.
Thanks again

find a Batteries Plus store near you http://www.batteriesplus.com/ they can re-build your current batteries, by installing new cells. Buy as high capacity replacement cells as you're willing to spend, for longer life between charges.

Dannyboy,
Take your drill and batteries over to a local Batteries Plus store and they will put new batteries into your battery case.
They will charge a fair price for the batteries.

Take care

Danny,
Here is a place that you can send your battery case and have the batteries replaced:

Interstate Battery stores will rebuild your battery. Not cheaply, but it will get done.

So does that mean the warranty expires when the battery does?

Default Here's a website

I haven't checked for your particular batteries, but would suggest visiting batterydepot.com . They have produced for me on several occasions.

Default batteries plus

Dropped the batteries off at Batteries Plus store. $39.99 a piece to have rebuilt. Seems like alot of money, but the guy said the new batteries will have about twice the juice and endurance...something about milli-amps?? Anyway it's a done deal and get them back on Friday. Next time I purchace a Battery powered tool, I'll focus on replacement battery cost and availabillity.
Thanks for all the help.
Dannyboy
