I bought this six weeks ago to use primarily for my heated jacket to wear in our New England Winter. It charges very quickly (about 30 minutes). The first few times that I charged it, I found it quite difficult to slot the battery into the charger and get it out, and it did take me quite a few times to loosen it up enough for the connection to be comfortable. It was also a disappointment in the time range for the battery. When used in my heated jacket, it last about an hour before being drained enough to stop supplying power. I thought that maybe it was too much for the jacket and instead tried the battery on my Bosch drill, but again it was good for only a couple of hours before being drained. I did recharge the battery 6 times after it had expired its charge but see no change in the length of time of service

Not a lot of power.
from Seattle, WA, United States
I bought one of these last week because my five-year-old 412 batteries were losing their ability to hold a charge. Yes, it does charge quickly, but if the charge-level lights on my impact driver are any indication, this (presumably) new battery is not any better than my old ones. I wish I could read the manufacturing date to see if it was sitting in a warehouse too long before being sold.
nice if they stayed in tool
bought 4 tools and 4 batteries the hooks on 3 of the batteries have broken now they just fall out of the tools
PS30 Cordless Drill/Charger/Battery Kit
from Hawaii, United States
I purchased the PS30 drill/charger/battery kit. Very happy with the drill and charger but the batteries were a different matter; both batteries (BATT 411) failed (would not accept a charge).I suspect the BATT 411 has been replaced by another model.
from Southbridge, MA, United States
Excellent charge after extended storage.
from Eleva, WI, United States
These batteries are very impressive. Bought the drill kit that included two of these and they are always ready to go.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Excellent life but charger gets hot in hot weather
from Tulsa, OK
Excellent life charging in moderate temps is fast but slow in hot weather charger is cheap and badly needs an internal heat sink to manage heat and speed charging at 90F+. Otherwise am pleased.
effective but ....
from QuÃ©bec, QC, Canada
The battery kept working for a a long time and the charge cycle is short but .... the plastic locking tab broke apart on the battery I had with the oscillating tool. Misuse or vibration ? I don't know but, on a vibrating tool , the battery kept falling off whenever I placed the tool vertically ... So here is a problem for the engineering department.

Great little battery
from Granbury, TX
I love that these batteries hold the charge for an extended period of storage, as I use them intermittently.
