Changed line 10 from:
I plan to get a BMS for it, but in the meantime I just put a simple voltmeter onto it so I can see what's going on. And there a rocker switch on the bottom so the voltmeter only turns on when the drill is picked up.

I've got a BMS on order, but in the meantime I just put a simple micro-voltmeter onto it so I can see what's going on. And there's a rocker switch on the bottom so the voltmeter only turns on when the drill is picked up.

I scored some free LiMN batteries from two dead ebike battery packs. After combining good cell groups from the two packs together to create an OK [[http://www.myonlinediary.com/index.php/Main/32vLithiumBatteryPackRebuild|32v pack]] (for the [[http://www.myonlinediary.com/index.php/Main/ElectricGo-kart|go-kart]]) I had enough cells left over to make a new battery pack for my old NiCad drill.

I put 8 cells in in 4 groups of two to make a 16v (fully charged) pack. I doesn't have a BMS - so there's no cell balancing at present, and there's no low voltage safety cutout.

I plan to get a BMS for it, but in the meantime I just put a simple voltmeter onto it so I can see what's going on. And there a rocker switch on the bottom so the voltmeter only turns on when the drill is picked up.
