The pairs lined up to attach in series
the pairs where the red jumper wires would
be connected (remember the pairs are connected
on the bottom)
after the correct number of cells are hooked up
the jumper wires are flexible enough to put in
the container were the old cells used to be..........
just to illustrate how much simpler it was
than trying to trace where the tabs would
go after the pairs were all bundled up.....
People....it is so simple to replace these
NiCad cells all that's needed is a little soldering
One person had asked if my cells all have tabs
that they could solder to.
"I've not had much luck trying to solder to NiCad
cells without the tin tabs", he remarked.
Now it doesn't take luck to solder directly to NiCads,
in my experience you need 3 things for sucess,
a clean surface for the solder to bond , a very light film
of flux with your finger tip, and enough heat to keep
the drop of solder hot enough as you put it in contact
with the NiCad's negative metal shell or the positive
metal tip.....all that's needed is that tiny drop of solder
transferring the heat to the metal surface without cooling
until it bonds which is instantly....leaving the soldering
tip in place any longer is unnecessary and damaging.
If you can do it and imediately put you finger tip
firmly without burning you have been sucessful.....the NiCad
Hasn't been damaged one little bit by the small amount
