Just keep it charged up, but remember to disconnect the battery while not in use ,and store the two in your handy tool box on your truck, or the trunk of your car, (and a set of impact sockets) there a life savor and the price is right, It's a win, win tool to appreciate!.
This is the second impact in under a year the battery will not hold a charge, the first battery took forever to replace now the second battery is the same as the first, went to store and had no help with replacing it
As with most Sears battery operated devises, the batteries suck. Where DeWalt tools keep on running, Sears battery operated tools die early. Forcing you to buy several batteries to keep up with everyone else.
This was a great purchase for the price I paid.
Live the tool my friend has the same one and that is why I bought this one. Can't beat it for the price. Other cordless impacts do the same thing for 2-3 times the price.
