Mostly good service
I have had my drill and light set at least five years. I bought a second battery soon after. The original battery lasted about 3 years. The last battery died yesterday after at least four and one half years. I have not had the early battery failure of many reviewers. However, the charge does not last long under heavy usage which is why I had two batteries. For most of my home chores with a drill and screw driver it has been more than adequate and charges have lasted several months. Before upgrading to lithium batteries plus charger, I would probably buy and new drill. Over all I have had a better experience than most reviewers with these batteries. I am buying another one today.

Craftsman 19.2 Volt Ni-Cad Battery

Bought these batteries to use for construction use framing a barn with 3 1\2 inch screws. Batteries had good power, and we got about an hour to an hour and a half usage out of each battery. After use, the batteries took about an hour to recharge.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good price on sale, this is a replacement for the original which lasted a good 5 years+. Hope this one lasts as long, or until prices come down.

good backup battery

It was somewhat expensive, but I am happy that I finally have a second battery for my drill. The drill always seems to run low on juice toward the end of a job, so this extra battery is awesome.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good replacement battery

Good replacement battery. Bought 2 to have a spare ready to go. I also purchased the new lithium with dual charger, so I can charge both types of batteries. Found out my old charger was actually bad, not the batteries. Now I have plenty...so I have to add to the C3 options.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Always ready!

I love having extra batteries charging. I know that when the tool I am using starts to lose power, I always have extra batteries charging. Also, when using more than one Craftsman tool at once, or using my Craftsman radio, there are no worries. I'm up to six extra batteries now!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great to have two!

Bought this so I'd have a spare for my drill because let's face it, I am bad about plugging the thing in and its always dead in the middle of using it. Having the second battery is great as i can leave one on the charger and its always ready when I need it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very Short Life Expectancy!

I have the 19.2 combo pack. One of the batteries will not take a charge and I haven't owned this for very long either. By comparison, I have a 9.6 volt Makita from the 1990's, and 2 generations of 12.0 volt DeWalt cordless drill/drivers and all are still going strong in 2014. I have never had to replace the batteries on any of them and I worked for a contractor! What gives?

Trying to decide between lithium and Nicd

I've been trying to decide between lithium and Nicd for years. The lithium batteries being three times the price (on sale) don't last three times as long but lately the Nicd batteries seem to reach the end of their life in 18-20 months. (Hence the 12 month warranty) If I didn't already own all the 19.2 volt it wouldn't be so hard to switch brands.

19.2 V Replacement Battery

What can you say about a rechargeable battery? That it works? I have to admit that I was blown away when I was offered an extended guarantee on it, but I never buy those, though it was tempting. This isn't the first replacement I've bought. And it probably won't be the last. While $30 (on sale) is a bit steep for a drill/driver that cost less than twice that amount, I guess Sears has to make money some way. I only wish that the lithium ion batteries that also fit this drill were less expensive. OTOH, the lithium ion batteries for my cochlear implant cost $195 a pop, but they're covered by my health insurance. Now, there's an idea. Maybe I should sign my drill up for Obamacare.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Absolute Garbage!!!!

My original set of batteries lasted about 3 years or so which I wasn't happy about b/c I didn't use them much. But it is what it is... So I buy 6 replacement batteries less than 8 months ago, ALL of the batteries do not hold a charge and there is only a 90 day warranty for them. the sad part is, I actually never used the batteries. I charged them and put them on my shelf. They no longer work and sears refuses to help. I will never buy sears battery operated tools, I will stick to what the pro's stick with. Even the gear box/clutch in the fairly new drill blew out today. That is what compelled me to let everyone know the truth of the craftsman battery operated powered tools.
