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.

Great replacement

Bought this as a replacement to the regular 19.2 volt battery and it works great, and holds charge longer.

Charger rejuvenates my old ni-cad batteries too

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Lithium 19.2v Battery, Just what I needed

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

pleased so far

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

C3 19.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Battery

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best Choice Available

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Even Better

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.

Excellent

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

No brainer purchase for your cordless drill

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.

Strong and Consistent

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.
