The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and BatteriesPlus have recalled an assortment of replacement Ni-Cd battery packs made for Black and Decker, Bosch, DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee, Panasonic, Ryobi, and Skil tools.
The recall involves Rayovac-brand replacement batteries made in China and sold by BatteriesPlus between June 2008 and October 2010. Apparently there’s a risk of explosion with the battery packs, and the CPSC and BatteriesPlus recommend that users stop using the packs immediately. Packs affected range from 2.4v to 18v models, in various configurations. The recall affects about 111,800 batteries.
For a detailed list of affected models, contact BatteriesPlus (877-856-3232).

Like the Japanese, Taiwanese, and S.Koreans, it will take them some time to make the transition from manufacturers of poor to medium quality goods, to making high quality products. The price will go up accordingly. Meanwhile, I take no chances with them. I purchase used tools off Craigs list and E-Bay, Woodcentral classified ads, or from friends. The Chinese tools are gettin better, just not there yet. Stay tuned.
