Best So Far
I have had three different versions of the 19.2 volt batteries, the original, the Diehard, and now these. Compared to the other Nicads, these are the best yet. They charge faster, and run longer on a charge, but I have not had it long enough to know what its overall lifespan will be compared to the others. They all stop charging at some point, only time will tell, but so far so good. I also plan to get one of the XCP batteries which should be the best of all.

Very disappointed, Standard batteries last just as long
I'm a diehard craftsman tool owner. After reading the reviews I decided to spend the money for these batteries. Major disappointment. My old standard batteries last longer. Only plus is they are lighter weight.

Quick charge

This is a quick charging unit with plenty of power for longer drilling time. The battery keeps its charge longer when stored properly. This is one of my better buys.

Unbelievable, lighter but stronger. great charge life

While being lighter than the NiCad, the new Lithium Ion lasts much longer and does not seem to lose it's charge while stored. Never going back.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Heavy duty, light weight

I bought this battery and charger along with the C3 Impact Driver. I like cordless and this one is my new favorite. It took 30 minutes to charge, out of the box (as promised) and I was able to get to work on my project right away. I like the size and light weight of the battery, made the work much easier and less cumbersome. I was able to finish all the initial fastening for my project over a couple of days without recharging. When I did need to recharge it, once again, it only took about 30 minutes. The indicator lights on the charger are clear and easy to read. I like it a lot. I'll probably get an extra battery (for convenience).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

FANTASTIC

I have had my Craftsman C3 tools for many years. The large NI CAD batteries were cumbersome, and lasted a fair amount of time, for the technology. These compact Lithium-ion batteries are great, They charge much faster, and last longer. They even seem to give my old tools more torque. I also bought the car charger. Wonderful for refreshing your batteries between service calls. I use my tools all day, and I have yet to run out of power.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Really?

Opened up box, plugged up charger, red light is lit, placed the battery in it, green light blinked for about 10 seconds, all lights went off. Assumed it was charged according to the instructions. Placed next new battery in charger, this time no lights lit. Assumed it was ALREADY charged. Charger never showed any sign of life again. This charger lasted sixty seconds, so it cost me about a dollar per second of usefullness. I think thats way to expensive don't you? Oh, I drove over 100 miles (2 hours) to get that sixty seconds of Craftsman expertise. Yep, thats professional grade. Now, will I have to invest another 2 hours of my life to get my money back? Of course I will. Yep, thats professional grade.

I am always using my C-3 Craftsman tools. I had to constintly charge the ni-cad battery. This new ion Holds a charge for a much longer period of time. I will probably buy another ion battery when my ni-cad takes a dump.
