I saw nearly the same thing on a replacement blades for my electric razor. A new electric razor was only $4 more. As the battery and motor were still working well and I don't like filling up landfills with electronic items, I just got the blades. That was over a year ago and the razor is still working well except that it probably needs new blades.

loss leader...they make the money on other items, such as those batteries, an extra charger, whatever add on's they sell separately.
This is the same model used with glucose meters for diabetics. The companies lose money on the meter sales, but more than make it up on the ongoing test strips.

It may be feasible/economical to dismantle the pack and replace the battery(s) within (along the lines of). How are your soldering skills? Do you have a kitchen table and an engine hoist?




Nevermind...not a Ruben™ thread.
