But if anyone is interested i have 6 or 7 ryobi 18v alkaline that are in various stages of charge , 2 were new last year. You pay the shipping and you can have them all and a copy of the plans to rebuild your own. I will only use lith batteries now my first one cost me $100 cdn plus the charger 3 years ago and it is just as strong as then. i bought 3 more and a 6battery charger on ebay this year. Once you use em the extra money seems trivial ..
