I ordered these for my husband as he loves his battery operated tools. They look exactly like the ones he needed and they fit perfectly. They charged and work great. I ordered one day and they were delivered the next with no special delivery charges.

I have a few of these batteries and a couple chargers and over time a battery and charger have both died (several years). They work for multiple tools and are very handy. They used to be $90 a battery. I got mine for $40 on sale at Sears!
Great life, good power, just treat it right. Always fully discharge it before recharging, and don't leave it on charger. Hate all these reviews of "left it on charger for weeks/months and it didn't work." of course not, the #1 killer of batteries is heat and nothing builds heat like leaving a battery on charger after it's charged. My personal tip is always fully discharge and recharge the battery at least once a month if your not using it. I have 11 years and still going strong on a set of nicd's from a drill I have by doing this.

I really like the old batteries better. They seem to last just as long, if not longer and they get weaker instead of just dying, like the new ones. Oh, ya and they're allot cheaper!

I have had the 19.2V system for a number of years. I liked the tools so much I now have the drill, impact driver, circular saw, flashlight, and sawzall. I finally needed to replace the original batteries....so I purchased a pair of replacement batteries. The replacement batteries are ABSOLUTE JUNK!!!! They don't hold a charge, run down way too fast. I am NOW looking to replace my entire set of cordless tools, and they WILL NOT be Craftsman.
My husband buys these to go on his battery pack screw driver and loves it. His only complaint is they don't last very long and need to be replaced yearly at the tune of $40. He has now given me a smaller type battery pack screw driver which I love and it's not to heavy. So we will be purchasing battery packs every year so we can continue using our battery pack screw drivers!!

Purchased a replacement battery for the drill. Works absolutely GREAT! Good value for the price. No where else you could get a good battery for this kind of price.
I rated this battery at four starts because the Lithium batteries really do hold more of a charge. However, for the price and the number of tools that I have that are powered by this type of battery, I still think it is one of the best deals that you will ever find. The battery is not too heavy, charges rather quickly and is easy to remove and replace in the main tools. In general, Craftsman makes a great product and I would not stray away.
