Works as described and is just what I was looking for. I have almost the full complement of Craftsman 19.2v tools. The one downside is that batteries don't last forever. The New Lithium Ion battery was exactly what I was looking for.
I order this kit online and pick it up at store same day, I couldn't believe I got it so quick. I have an old battery, and can not be charged well. When I used this new charger, old battery can be charged so fast and has enough power to work again. Overall, a great product!
The battery is light weight and last longer than the Nicd and that's why I purchased the set. If you are going to invest in the C3 series, I suggest you get this charger since it won't over charge your batteries. Sears also sell the charger by itself, but the charger is not the same as this one. The other take a little bit longer time to fully charge your battery.
I had heard this product was available and worked well. I am impressed and pleased with the results I am receiving from working with the battery and charger. It charges quickly and has good holding power. I am using with the Reciprocating Saw with good results. It appears to be much better than the previous product I was using.

I order this battery kit one afternoon and received it the next day. I couldn't believe I got it so quick. A friend had one and recommended it to me. I ordered it for my husband but I am the one using it. It fits my old drill and this battery stays charged so much longer. I'm not having to switch battery every little bit.
I drive for the U.S.P.S as a rural carrier and it is imperative that I prepare for anu flat tires while on the road. I can charge my Lithium battery the charge last a good week. i feel secure knowing i can change my tire effortless without calling jy husband out. Thanks so much
I already have a C3 drill, with the Ni-Cad battery, when adding a new C3 device (hand vacuum), getting a newer style L-I battery and newer charger that handles both types seemed like the way to go. So far, the battery is great, and the charger works great with both types of batteries.

The C3 charger will charge both standard and Lithium-Ion C3 batteries. The small compact Lithium-Ion battery weights less and makes the C3 Grass trimmer easier to handle.
I have several 19.2 v Craftsman tools and wanted longer life batteries and reduce the weight of the tools. Finding out that the charger would also charge the original batteries, allowed me to eliminate the charger that came with the multi-tool set and recharge them faster. What a difference in having batteries available in a shorter time frame!

I received a cordless impact for Christmas two years ago with the regular Ni-Cad battery. I don't use it as often as it should be used so the battery slowly drained and doesn't hold a charge as well. Bought the Li-Ion battery as a back up and don't have the drainage problem any more. I wish they had the high capacity battery with charger as an option, but it was only a stand alone unit.
Starting up my transition to Lithium batteries and worked with Sears to get best option and this was it. Very happy with new charger style and glad it has the capability to charge original style of Ni Cad Sears battery as well. Charger does not take up that much real Estate either Very durable and glad they had this option

I was skeptical about replacing a nickel-cad battery for my cordless drill, until I purchased the lithium battery and charger. The new battery is smaller, weighs less, and lasts about four times longer than the two remaining nickel-cads. I also can re-charge both styles of batteries, and in record time. Great upgrade!

I had 4 Ni-Cad batteries for my 2 drills, cordless circular saw and reciprocating saw. I could get a hour or two with the drills, but I could only run my saws about 3 minutes before they would kill my batteries. Very frustrating given how much $ I put into this tool collection. I decided to give the Lithium batteries a shot. Holy cow! These things are workhorses! I can run my drills litterally for hours without running out of juice. I just last weekend I cut down my old fence with my reciprocating saw and I used it for over 30 minutes before the battery died. So awesome. And these batteries charge super fast and when they are out of juice, they just shut off. No slow power drain, they go from all out to zero, which is great. If you have a collection of Craftsman power tools and are looking for a great upgrade at a reasonable price these batteries are the way to go
