I gave this five stars because of my experience with CPC more than the battery itself. I bought a 9.6. volt Ridgid screw driver/drill in 2010 and use it, primarily as a screwdriver, for household projects; relatively infrequent use. I had two batteries and one failed to recharge after seven years. I went to a Direct Tool Factory Outlet store, which sells Techtronic Industries Products, including Ridgid power tools, to purchase a new battery. The sales clerk said that the battery was no longer available. He told me I "might" be able to find one on-line, but it would be "very expensive." Basically, he was trying to sell me a new screw driver/drill with a Lithium ion battery. I found CPC on-line and bought two new batteries at a very reasonable price. They arrived quickly and well-packaged. Yes, lithium ion batteries are better than NiCad batteries, but my power tool works fine, and I can easily address the relatively short run time by utilizing two batteries.
Really like this driver / drill and after many years the battery was losing power. Really excited to see the replacement battery available and at a reasonable price. Exact replacement and was brand new.
This company is fantastic. I have purchased several reconditioned items and have not had a problem. The products are just like new only you pay a lot less! Do not hesitate to purchase from Reconditioned Tools.
