To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My DeWalt tools came with a 2 a.h. battery which doesn't last long in cold weather, so I invested in this 5 a.h. battery. Now I'm able to take my cordless reciprocating saw on big game hunting trips and will be able to cut ribs from moose, caribou and bison without running out of battery power.
Buena potencia, da la impresión de que uso aparatos conectados a corriente; pero sin cable que se atore recuerdo lo genial de esta batería. Recomiendo revisar dimensiones y peso pues el tener esta potencia sí lleva sus implicaciones en ambos. El indicador de carga es genial, no se necesita adivinar si le falta o no. Ya la volví a comprar y estoy migrando a herramientas para esta batería.
This DEWALT DCB205 5AH battery is working good on my tools and on charging my phone. It compares with my other DCB204 4AH battery. Both are exact same size in dimensions. Both are almost same weight. After several tests. Both are holding similar power in capacity as both prices are very closed as well(the DCB 205 should hold 25% more power than DCB 204, but only 10% more in tests. That is the only reason to rate it as four stars).
Battery would not charge in either one of my chargers. Sent it back and seller says there is nothing wrong with it. Simple way for them not to have to pay for the return shipping. My cost was $23 for the return plus they reimbursed me $132.50 and I had paid $143.70. So I’m out almost $35.00. I will buy my batteries at from a reputable seller in the future.
Worked great once charge. now it won't charge. charger says it charged. battery instantly dies when used in a tool. Either battery is defective or not compatible with DeWalt charger. Disappointed. Will contact the seller.
Excellent long lasting battery. My DCD995 was under powered(it would just click and stop under heavy load) in speed 3 mode with the 1.5AH batteries I had, this 5AH battery allows the large heavy duty drills to perform at their full potential.
Delivery was very prompt and product was as expected. This battery gives a useful life to my chainsaw and grass trimmer. I was planning to buy a Chinese style battery then after reading reviews I decided on original Dewalt.
A great battery, that I use with my higher powered tools (Skill Saw, Saws-all). I attached it to an LED light and left it on for the whole day and it was still showing 3 full bars/ lights of energy. 5Ah is the way to go. It feels pretty robust too, but i'm not going to go throwing it around.
Never did get all 3 lights to light up. Assumed it was the measurement tool since the battery originally worked. however i started to notice this 5AH battery was dying at the same speed as my 1AH original dewalt battery. Charging was extremely fast and speeding up. Eventually on full charge i couldn't get my drill up to speed. Only fully used five to eight times. I was very careful to store inside and avoid the cold weather, i've ruined batteries this way so i am sure i didn't abuse it. Will try and return but this is almost 5 months old at this point.
