Default New NiCad and NiMh Battery Packs

Hi guys,

I have come across 13 packs of batteries from way back when...

They are all Orion matched pushed packs in original heat shrinks ie never been built or plastic removed.

Are these packs worth anything?

Regards
Warren

They'd be worth somewhere between zero and very, very little today.

Ok, thank you.

Best use them for glow drivers. Sure a Orion VMax pushed pack should warm a glow driver pretty well for nitro motors.

If they look good might be anyone interested in them for shelf queens and such.

Yep, pretty neat. Maybe good for the shelf.
