Replacement for Dewalt 18 V XRP

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks;

   I have a collection of 18 V volt Dewalt tools in great condition,  as well as contractor friends,  all looking for decent replacements for the 18 V XRP  NiCad batteries.    I have have considered ordering on-line directly from 'off-shore' sources but am confused by the options.   I find NiCad,  NiMH,  and  Lithium types,  apparently all available in aa XRP housing.    

   I have an electronics background but not interested in replacing the cells in my existing batteries  (unless a pre-assembled assembly was available).   I have read that my old chargers are not suited to Lithium (or NiMH?) charge rates/duration etc,  but would consider buying a new charger.  

   Has anyone had luck finding an economical (off-shore) source for batteries for our old reliable 18 Volt tools?

                            Thanks,  Peter in Canada
