    I had missed that "easy solder" note. I think I'll get them and give it a try. Thanks to all who responded.

    The Rollie 3003 packs I have rebuilt have Sanyo Cadnicas in them and I replace them the same battery:

    That looks like a AA battery. I need N batteries.

    I just had these guys http://www.primecell.com/ rebuild two batteries for a cordless drill. Reasonable cost (compared to new batteries) and quick service. I notice they also do photo gear as well. Worth a look.

    I get my batteries from this site.

    but like I have said you need to measure your original batteries carefully to make sure they are of the righ size. The batteries in the link all have tabs which make it easy to solder them together.

    OK, the batteries arrived today, but they sure don't seem to take solder as advertised. Is there something I need to do to the terminals for them to take solder?

    If you sand paper and sand the terminals lightly they will take solder.

    I ended up taking the batteries to Batteries Plus to have the pack built with a spot welder. It's been on the charger for 4 hours but it's not working yet. The normal charge time is 5 hours for the NiCds, so it should take a bit longer for the NiMH batteries that were replaced. I checked the charger and it's putting out 1.28 V. Considering the batteries are 1.2 V, is that to be expected? I'll let it charge overnight, so hopefully it'll work in the morning...

    Nimh batteries top out at about 1.4v fresh off the charger. Are you using the same charger as the nicd pack? They don't have the same charging characteristics and the charger might charge it wrong. They are pretty similar...but I would definitely not leave the charger unattended.
