We want to pass on our savings to our customers, so we've lowered the price of this item. However, since our price is now below the manufacturer's suggested retail price, we are restricted by the manufacturer from showing the price right away.
Like drill but battery didn't last 6 months. Price for new is over half as much as what drill originally cost. Won't pay that high price based on poor battery life. Will charge but now won't last 5 minutes. Other than battery happy with drill. But without battery drill is useless!
Someone is making some serious money on the sale of these. Comprised of cheap Chinese cells, the nicely-designed battery pack is not made to last. Only 1.2 Amp hr. capacity is the lowest listed for any battery pack - and the price implies that it is more than what it actually is. Used in a drill, my home improvement tasks can almost never be completed on a single charge.
dont waste your money spend a litle more and buy dewalt or any other top brand skil has not perfected cordless power tools . battery life is about several months total garbage thats why you dont see skil in the real hardware stores and supply houses only in the big box stores
Left the drill charging in the Garage and the charger got so hot it melted. Don't know if the battery is good- no charger an I can't find one. New battery more expensive than buying another drill with battery and charger. Doubt if I will buy another Skill or if I do I will charge it outside on the patio.
I have used this battery in my 18V drill and find that it has a long run time and is good to the last volt. I recently completed a large deck for a customer using "Trex ®" decking and 2 1/2" #10 screws. I could drive most of the day (about 300 screws) on one charge. This is three times the run from my B&D 18v. I would heartily reccomend this product to anyone.
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.
