I own a Craftsman 3/8" drill/driver which runs on a 9.6 volt battery pack. The drill is in perfect condition except the quick charger is dead. The drill was my father's and I would like to continue using it. Does there exist a truly universal charger, perhaps made by someone else, that will charge my battery pack? I purchased another Craftman 9.6 volt portable drill in the hopes that it's charger would work but, alas, it does not. Any help out there? It would be most appreciated!

Thank you so very much for your reply! Yes, I do want to continue to use this drill since it was my Dad's, who passed away 6 years ago. Many of his tools came to me, his daughter, and I use them proudly, along with all the skills he taught me. I credit him the most for my becoming a picture framer. I love my job!

A ***** store is nearby so I plan to take the drill and it's battery packs with me and discuss with them the purchase a higher voltage charger. As you may suspect, if the drill wasn't my Dad's I probably would not invest in a 50 to 60 dollar charger for a portable drill that I could replace for 80 to 90 dollars.

BTW, with the amount of remodeling and repairing I do in my home and those of my family, I am keeping the additional drill/drive set. It, along with my original Craftsman, will get much use.

Again, thanks for your response!
