I am afraid this is the problem buying no name equipment, when things go tits up finding spares or someone to repair them is often impossible. Thats the reason they are so cheap, no backup, you should regard them as throw away when they go wrong. You may if your lucky able to re-cell the battery but even that is fraught with issues.

Aliexpress seems to be your only choice as an equivalent for Ferm
CDA6009 24v battery, I think?

Apologies, mixed it up with those Power-something tools B&Q used to sell cheap, once something broke you were knackered.

Do you want a spare battery - or would your original fixed do as well?
Several firms will re-cell any battery. But may cost as much or more than
a new one - if you can buy them.

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.

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.

There were some pretty weird deals available, and I doubt that you could
have recelled more cheaply. For example Makita 4ah for £22 (now, sadly,
no longer available).

This claims to be 5ah. Maybe worth a punt for £18?

Ni-Cads seemed to vary enormously in quality. With a drill, the ability to
deliver enough current. Does the same apply to Li-Ion?

Based on the tests I have seen, yup. There is also the difficulty that
even the well known makers of cells produce varieties with very
different max current outputs, so you need to choose something matched
to the cell characteristics of the OEM battery.

£18 is well below my "too cheap to be worthwhile" level

It could be brand engineered as some are where they are made by a well known
company. If that is the case its often a line discontinued by that company
and the new kit does not fit the old, though often its just a subtle little
change to stop you buying el cheapo batteries for the new model.
I've noticed this often in rechargeable radios etc, where the plug on the
battery pack is physically different but the battery electrically is the
same. They don't want you to fix them, just throw them and buy another. Bah
humbug.
