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.

I bought this lithium battery charger for my husband. I really like this compared to his old 18 volt batteries it's smaller and a lot lighter he prefers it more than the old one . He even went and bought another new drill to to go with this system good job craftsman we needed new tools I think. Thanks
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!

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!
