i have a 14.4 v battery plus a recharging cradle i think they their day but the drill is still great any suggestions
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @JJT2021. It's a pleasure to have you join us, and many thanks for your question.
That appears to be the OZCD144V1BK which utilises NiCad batteries and was available around 2014. I would be more than happy to contact Ozito tomorrow to determine whether batteries are still available for that unit. Given the advancement in technology and the switch from NiCad to Lithium-Ion batteries, it would be worth considering what drills are on offer at the moment. The Ozito PXC 18V Drill Driver Kit would be a good option as the drill has 21 torque settings, a one-handed keyless chuck, a two-speed gearbox and the Lithium-Ion batteries stay charged and are ready to go when you need them. The batteries also only take 120min to charge instead of the 4-5 hours on the older NiCad batteries and aren't as susceptible to damage from inadequate charging cycles.
I'll get back to you regarding being able to order new batteries.
The 14.4V NiCad battery your drill uses is no longer produced. As you have mentioned, having it repacked could be an option. However, given the advancement in technology, I would suggest that the cost of re-packing the battery would be better used towards a new drill and battery combo.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
