    Default Rechargeable Power Tool Batteries

    What is the difference between a lithium ion battery and a NiCd battery?

    As I understand it, lithium ion has more capacity and less internal resistance, equating to longer running and higher powered tools.

    Lith also recharges faster. Ni's are a thing of horse and buggy days.

    I forgot to say that lithium isn't subject to cell degradation and "memory" that NiCads are either.

    As I understand it, ASpruce is working on a deal with the Chinese to send a land vehicle to Pluto and it will be using Lith batteries.......... Just a rumor......... But...... ASpruce will be at the controls of an RC Monster Truck and a web cam that they are sending. If it does happen he will be making very "Non-Green" landscape changes on Pluto............

    You heard it here first............
