Due to European environmental regulations, we will no longer be supplying 12V Nickel-Cadmium (NI-Cd) batteries. Once exiting inventories are gone, they will not be available for sale or replacement. The 12V 3.2AH Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) battery will still be available for sale. In addition to this change, a new product line of 14.4V Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries will be available for sale. The new 14.4V Li-Ion batteries will be available in 2 sizes: 1.3AH and 2.6AH. All Li-Ion batteries will require 14.4V Li-Ion chargers.
As a result of the change to the batteries, a new 14.4V Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) charger will be available for sale. Also, the Ni-Cd + Ni-MH charger will remain available for sale.
