For people in the UK, a couple of minutes searching also found:
https://www.countybattery.co.uk/battery-help/repairing-battery-packs...
https://www.multicell.co.uk/bespoke-batteries/battery-refurbishment/

USA:
http://batterypackrebuilder.com/
http://www.batteryrefill.com/tools/index.phtml

I have no idea if any of them will touch a PDA battery and, as I have never used any of them, none of these represetn a recommendation. If they're Li/LiPo 18650's though they may just take the work.

The other thing that springs to mind is to find an eBike battery repair/recell place. They'll have the tools and an abundance of 18650's. They will likely struggle with NiMh or NiCad though as they won't stock the cells - you may be able to arrange to pay for labour though if you provide the cells.

Thanks again for your help, C....

I'm sending emails to several companies to see what they say and go from there....

Also, will check if a local electronics shop I used a few times some years ago is still around and if so, whether they'd do it....they're about a half hour drive away...not too bad...

will report back with what I learn....

What about a company like https://www.mtobattery.com/pages/custom-battery-build-services I know that they are on the wrong side of your country, but there must be someone nearer offering a rebuild service who will do the soldering for you.


After writing them and send battery photos, they responded with the following (excerpt of message):

Quote

We can replace the cells in this battery for you.

Please note that since this is not a common battery for us, we would have no way to diagnose whether the circuit board is working properly after it is rebuilt.

For that reason, we will provide you an aggressive price for rebuilding but the sale would need to be as-is. The cost for this service would be $30 + shipping.


How does this sound to you?

Price seems very fair.

Seems like it's probably worth taking the risk.....

Meanwhile, one of the local repair shops I contacted declined to help.

Have not received response from another company I emailed.

For £24, I'd give it a go! (Though I'm happy to do it myself).

You can point out that if they do a good job, there is an entire community here with ancient batteries that need some attention.

... and tell them I want my commission

Na, but we used to use cheques (spelt the correct, English way, naturally. We'll have none of your 'color' here, thank-you) in the olden times

1776, Pennsylvania:

"What can we do to really hack 'em off?"

"Spell everything wrong, that'll really stick in their Eton schoolboy craw!"

"Yeah, let's make it just subtle enough that only spelling Nazi's will get annoyed"

"Like George III you mean?"

"Core yeah, did you see the dressing down he gave John Penn for not remembering I before E except after C. Almost had him at the gallows save for honest Bill Tryon stepping in at the last minute"

"Then it's agreed! From now on we'll sporadically spell things wrong such that they be driven to devote all their spare time crying into their milked-down tea over the sheer indignity of it all..."

"... and pronounce things wrong..."

"AND pronounce things wrong too Yes, yes. Very good!"

"Now, who's for coffee?"





bloody savages the lot of you!

Sorry for OT but these US and UK stuff reminds me of my career in the german army.
I've learned british english in school and then I was stationed on the US Airbase in Ramstein for 6 months. Well... what a different.
Rubbish became bullshit and every second word in a sentence was pus** or fuc**. It was so easy to build sentences with these fillwords.
A german comedian told about his time in New York where people shout "Fuc** you", "No, FU** YOU". In Germany it would be like: "Greetings", "No, GREETINGS TO YOU"

Yeah... but only because you demeaned yourselves to becoming the first great power in the world to need the help of the French to win a war
