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.

Run as fast as you can
The first one I bought only got 6 inches of a 10 inch lag screw in with a pilot hole drilled and it could of been done by hand no pressure, until it died and would not recharge. I went and got a second one and low and behold the same thing happened again. The NiCad battery that came with the drill worked fine. I bought this hoping it would last a bit longer, not to die after 6 inches of work.

Battery would not charge or work. Had to send charger back too, even though it worked.

Works better but be careful

This works much better that the Ni-Mh C3 packs I had before. Do not treat Li-ion batteries like Ni-Mh or Ni-Cd batteries. You will kill the pack if you run it completely flat as there is circuitry in the drill or other power accessories to prevent this. Some manufacturers will not allow you to run a Li-Ion pack flat as the device watches the voltage carefully and shuts off the device before it is completely discharged. You are best off with this battery to charge it frequently and keep it charged. Quality Li-ion batteries will last 4 or 5 years if treated this way.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Does the job well!

Does the job, does it well. Even 'fixed' my OLD NICad batteries! - they last significantly longer after a charge from this than 'their' old charger; they still don't last as long as they 'should'/originally did, but certainly better/longer!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Smooth, fast and easy online transaction, charges old NiCAD also.

This battery can be used in any C3 drill/driver or accessory that used the old NICAD batteries. These will plug right in and work. On top of that, this charger is much more intelligent than the old NiCAD charger and will resuscitate some of the old dead NiCAD batteries. I had old NiCADS that didn't work at all and this new charger got them working. Great product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent Starter Kit

This a great charger, it is simple, fast and versatile. It will charge multi chemistry (Lithium-ion and Ni-CD) and voltage batteries (12 to 19.2 volts). All you have to do is insert the battery and the charger will do the rest. This is a must if you still has some of the old Ni-CD batteries and looking to buy Lithium-ion batteries.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Lighter, faster, better power curve

The charger is usable with my older 19.2V batteries and seems to recondition them. It charges much faster with the newer batteries too. The lighter weight batteries are easier to,hold at arms length and use reaching over your head.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love My Craftsman Tools

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Great charger!!

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!

Can charge both the NIcd and Li-ion

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.

Great Product

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.

Great C3 battery and charger

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.

Great Lithium-ion Batteries & Charger

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!
