I have a new Worx li- ion battery drill i got for free because it was damaged on a diy store display, the battery connection end of the drill body is smashed and the bits missing , the easiest and cheapest way to repair it without 3D printing parts would be to epoxy the battery permanently to the drill, my question is can I fit an external connector for charging and charge with the battery on the tool ?

My aim is to do this with what I've already got and not buy parts.

True, I was thinking there might be some leakage if its a soft switch which would impact on the charging cycle termination
