    The battery tab has broken ⬆️. How could this be fixed without a battery spot welder. Soldering it has failed.
    *Yes a real makita battery probably would not of broken so easy*

    They will solder but you may need a hotter iron and scrape the mating surfaces. I've done it many times.

    I used to make battery packs similar to this for RC planes - took a very thick soldering iron with a Tee shaped top, this was to impart heat quickly without damaging the cells - maybe you just need an iron more suited to the task? The below 300w was similar to what we used back in the day before LiPo packs

    Since I don't want to buy a another soldering iron which will only be used once on a £20 battery, a woodscrew done a "temporary" repair.

    I bought that exact iron recently to do some work on an alternator and a dynamo. I'd always managed ok with a Iroda gas iron but though this would be better. The pictures don't convey it's size, it's like holding a hammer :laughing:
