Also be advised that usually you can't easily replace an NiCd battery type with a NiMH battery type as the former are usually employed in trickle charging  which can reduce the lifetime of NiMH and other non-NiCd battery types. Thus, before you are replacing the battery with a different type, make sure the charging circuitry is compatible with the new battery type.
