Been looking for a replacement power-pack for my Dremel MiniMite. An incredibly useful little tool, it's small, maneuverable, and powerful. Among many things, I use it frequently when trimming down bases. Score the plastic, snap off the excess, then round off the corners with the Dremel. Results are quite good.
But now it exhausts a charge in ten minutes or less. It's fifteen years old, so I have no gripe, but I was hoping to keep it going. A search of the internet yields no compatible replacement. Contacting Dremel earned no sympathy, nothing. Apparently the packs for the new version don't fit the old, probably having moved from nicad to lithium. I guess when it finally dies I'll just pitch it and get a new one.
Ugh, I hate throwing stuff away.
