Powercraft seem to have been made by Ferm. Is it this one:

They might be able to supply batteries:

It's annoying to throw away a perfectly good drill, but is it
realistic to spend say £30-40 on a new Ni-Cd battery or re-celling
the old one?

I bought some re-celled ones on eBay. I doubt I could have re-celled
one for same price.


or with the same (lack of) quality of cells probably... :-)


My experience may not be typical.

I have bought some cells to re-celled a couple of batteries and I've
bought re-celled ones. The faff is one thing, but the bought re-celled
batteries are still going strong, whereas I was disappointed with my own
attempt.

YMMV


Indeed, and it waa a slightly tongue in cheek response. The recelled
onea might be good - but it can be hard to know in advance.

My experience with "compatible" and recelled packs I tried, was that
while initially ok they did not have the same life as the OEM Makita
ones. Same applies to the one I recelled myself - at a price where it
was worth doing the performance was not good enough.
