|NiCd Lady Company Review (battery rebuild)|

Following a tip from this forum I sent in my 82161A battery to NiCd Lady Company (http://www.nicdlady.com/) to be rebuilt.
The process was fairly straightforward:
A few days after I did this I got an email stating that they were backlogged and to expect an email or call in 6-8 weeks.
- Check their list for your battery (http://www.nicdladyonline.com/rebuilding/photo-power.html). BTW, the prices are either outdated or updated. The chart indicates that I should have paid $28.
- Blindly send in your battery with a letter requesting that they rebuild your battery. Put in the letter your return address, phone number, and email address.
- Pray it does not disappear.
8 weeks later I was informed via email that my battery was rebuilt. I was asked to call to make arrangements for payment.
I called, handed over a VISA number, and was charged a total of $19.95 for the rebuild and return shipping.
A few days later it arrived. Clearly all the batteries were replaced and the case looks like it was opened and closed by a surgeon. Excellent workmanship.
I just tested the battery in my cassette drive. Finally NEWM 100 does not fail.
$19.95 was the cheapest price I could find (unless I wanted to do it myself), and the return shipping was included. If you do not mind waiting (I was in no hurry), then give NiCd Lady a go.
