Sorry, PJ - the power tool batteries that I typically run across are 
NiCd, NiMH or LiOH. The PulseTech systems are designed for standard 
lead-acid batteries:

 From the center of their front page:
"Works with all conventional flooded lead-acid batteries and sealed 
''maintenance-free'' batteries, including VRLA, AGM and gel cell"

Wish they did, though. I just renewed my two Craftsman packs from 1999, 
and it was not cheap! I can't conscience tossing out a perfectly good 
drill just because of the dead packs, though I likely could have 
replaced it (and more) for less money...
