If it is NiCd it has a chance.

If it is NiMh - it is most likely toast.

In either case, put it on a cycler and find out.

If you can get more than 80% of the pack back out of it then you should be ok. example:

100 mah should give you 80 or more mah out.

Yes, as Claude says it is very important what chemistry the cells are.


What chemistry are they?
