Craftsman is a tool and garden line developed by Sears Corp. The brand is sold at Sears, Kmart, Ace Hardware and Orchard Supply Hardware stores. Some Craftsman hand tools are powered with an ni-cad (nickel-cadmium) rechargeable battery that contains cadmium and nickel oxide hydroxide. While the batteries are rechargeable, these batteries eventually can wear and not hold a charge. When this happens, the battery must be replaced.
Call a Sears store and ask for the tool department. Ask whether they carry your particular Craftsman ni-cad battery or would be able to order one.
The appropriate battery also could be ordered from Sears’ website. Visit www.sears.com and click on “Tools” on the left vertical menu bar. Click “Power Tool Accessories” on the next vertical menu. Click on “Batteries and Chargers” to browse for a replacement battery.
Also check with an Orchard Supply Hardware or Ace Hardware store. These home improvement/hardware chains are licensed to sell Craftsman tools and accessories.
Another recommendation is to call a Batteries Plus store. This chain sometimes carries ni-cad batteries for Craftsman tools. Be sure to give the store the tool’s name and model number.
