Dustbuster battery pack replacement

I have an old Black & Decker Dustbuster cordless vacuum that no longer holds a charge. I took the battery pack apart and found it runs on NiCd batteries, which typically don't last very many charge cycles anyways. I modified the vacuum to take lighter, more powerful lithium-ion batteries.
