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.

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!

Purchased to complete other craftsman tools. Easy to use and charges quickly.purchased for Christmas present for husband.

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.

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.

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.
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!
