I found that if you don't use them regularly they tend to do crapo.


I did construction for about 30 years and have had many cordless tools and the pricier tools are good quality but the battery is a battery. I've had a Porter-Cable drill motor for 6 years or so, $80, one battery and charger on Amazon and after I retired didn't use it on a regular basis until recently and have had no trouble with it. I've had Dewalt that the battery went bad after a couple of years. So all in all I'd say it's a crap shoot, buy good but don't count on battery being of same quality.
The less you need, the more you have.
