This charger was bought because I changed over to lion batteries. It is capable of nicad or lion. The unit senses what type the battery is. It charged the lion batteries in 20 minutes. The unit and batteries did not get hot. Really like this charger.
this battery charger only lasted 4 months with only occasional use
The charger that came with my drill died. This one works great so far. One feature I really like is the energy save mode in case you forget to take the battery off the charger right away. You can use this charger for more than one type of battery too.
Dead after only three years of *light* residential use. Perhaps charging batteries 36 times, if that.
Also do not see anything in accompanying instructions that clarify how long batteries can be left in this charger. (remove immediately upon charging, overnight, long-term storage?) That kind of instruction is REQUIRED for proper use.
Now stuck buying another Crappy Craftsman Chinese-Made Item.
I love this charger. It will charge the older batteries also. It has lights so you can see what it is doing, and when your battery is charged, my old one didn't.
Batteries charge quickly. Displays indicate status of battery and are very easy to read.
Works great on all 19.2 Volt batteries!
Lithium ion is so much better than nicad, and this charger takes out the guesswork
This was purchased as an addition to the other chargers to charge more then one battery. It was an excellent purchase.
I have a weedeater & blower that take batteries. I need 2 chargers, & one died after about 2 years. Rather than replace the tools, I got a new charger.
Purchased for my sons birthday for his drill and other electrci tools he has. Very satisfied with this charger to acommadate more than one of his tools. Grest price on sale.
This is a great product! I had an old battery that looked good but when I out it on the charger it showed me that my old battery was faulty. I actually brought the single charger back to Sears and between the sale and some points I had earned through the club I was able to get a charger an lithium-ion battery pack combo for the same price! Now I have a brand new battery that is one of the new lighter models so I am super happy. Both the charger and the battery work great and you definitely can't beat the price!
y long time compared to the regular battery charger. I'm glad I purchased the lithium-ion charger.
Does what I need it to do. It charges the battery in a timely manner. Have had no issues with it. If it is as good as my old charger I look foward to several years service.
Had to purchase replacement batteries for my Craftsman P/T set.
The older batteries was not lithium. I asked the salesman if the old charger would charge the new lithium, he said they would so I only purchased the batteries. Wrong.....
I had to purchase this charger for the newer batteries and it works very well. Charges fast, lights indicate state of battery charge.
We lost power a week ago and I had bought this light for my husband for Christmas. We were so thankful to have it. It worked great.
It quickly charges 6 different Craftsman batteries. Only problem is it doesn't work with older 15.2 V battery.
Only had the charger a short time, but it sure charges fast. I like the idea that it will also charge the nickel ion battery which I have.
