My old ni-cad batterie was dead. Would not hold a charge. I bought this battery and charger kit after reading someone elses experience that their old charger would not charge the the new Lithium-Ion batteries. So I spent a little more and got a battery plus the charger. Happy I did because the new charger also charges my old ni-cad that I thought was dead. The new Lithium-Ion are so much lighter and last longer, so that is great too. Happy that I can use my power tools again.
I purchased an open box clearance item. The Lithium 19.2v Battery. I have the other basic 19.2volt nichel battery packs and chargers. When I saw this in Sears clearance/used section, batter and charger pack, it was just what I wanted/needed. I used it the following weekend. It is much lighter in weight than the basic 19.2 NC one.
Started phasing out my old NiCads last year. I am well pleased so far, would not give them 5 stars until I see how they hold up. I think the standard Lithium is the best value the larger ones seem over priced to me

I have had a C3 drill, saw & other tools for some time. They are vere handy when you need to make a quick repair or adjustment. Over the past few years, I have had several of the large C3 batteries go bad on me and they will not hold a charge and a few show fully charged on the charger but will not turn my drill over. This prompted me to look at the C3 Lithium-Ion battery as a replacement for the orgional. The Lithium-Ion battery charged up fast and I have been using it on my construction job for several days now without a recharge. The new style battery is light-weight and thus makes my tools lighter to hold, especially overhead. I rate this battery very high and I am looking forward to the next few months as it will get a good workout hanging Hardie panels. So far, this battery shows to be twice as good at holding a charge as the older style.
My old charger (pre-C3 but same battery) would only trickle charge. Think it took a hit during one of last years power outages. This new charger is great! Does my remaining Ni-Cad batteries which are still good plus the L-ions's. Comes with one L-ion and I bought a second on sale. For as often as I use my cordless tools, I should be good forever or at least many years to come.

Craftsman C3 19.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Battery Chargery Combo Kit works with regular Craftsman Battery tools. The 19.2 Volt Lithium Ion Battery lasts longer though.

Dual chemistry allows me to continue to use my old nicad batteries. And new technology protects both batteries from overcharging. It also mounts neatly on the wall to save space.
This battery and charging system has been most excellent so far. The battery charges quickly and stays charged for a long time. This battery also does not lose its charge after just sitting. The charging system itself is easy to use and easy to read the progress of the charging battery. It takes very little time for this system to charge the 19.2 volt battery, which is always good.
I have wanted this for a long time, the price was great, the salesman was very helpful. I saved so much buying this combo pack, that I even bought an extra battery. These charge in no time flat. Great product, great purchase!
I recently bought a new cordless drill before this, and realized the convenience of having an extra charger and battery was well worth it. Definitely recommend to anyone who does bigger jobs that are too long for one battery.

The Lithium Ion battery and Charger set gives me much better life than my old NiCad Batteries and the charge stays constant for much longer. The fact that the Charger is also good for my 2nd generation NiCads is nice. Going to buy another set for my son. Price for the set is reasonable but this item is often on sale if you want to save a few dollars towards another battery.
I bought this battery for a gift I already have one and the one I have works well. I wish a kit was offered that had a full size battery with a charger. I would of bought that instead of this one
It is a must have to partner with the drill. Much easier to have the battery charging for back up then to only be working with one. Receiving the drill and one battery for Xmas last year.
