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.
as soon as i got the battery it will not charge, have tried several different chargers and they all work with other batteries. i want to buy more but they have to weed out the all the inconsistent ones
I received a battery that would not charge. The charging unit would indicate it was fully charged but the indicator in the battery itself showed 1/3 green blocks. Using the battery wasn’t possible - I tried in several tools and it did not have the power to operate them for more than a few seconds. I haven't had any issues with the 2 Ah models. I have a replacement on the way and will update my rating accordingly. It seems, though, that DeWalt had an issue with its batteries as i dictated by the many similar reviewer’s comments. Be prepared to return / replace as it seems to be a shot in the dark that a non-defective unit is received.
Used this a few times with a small blower and recharged it a few times, now it will not hold a charge. I used the blower a few minutes several times per week blowing off my patio and deck. Initially it would last about 1-1/2 weeks. Worked fine for the first few months but now will not hold a charge. Disappointed.
This is supposed to be a construction tool, right? Really only good for sitting in a shelf or assembling flat pack furniture, because it can’t survive a drop or two off a ladder without falling apart. Apparently no one considered that things get abused in a real construction setting.
Purchased this battery almost a year ago, August 2019, and it officially no longer holds a charge. I had read issues with this through these reviews prior to purchasing but felt that maybe they had received lemons and while that may be true I think when something seems too good to be true, it is. Much cheaper than buying a Lowe’s but the two I bought from Lowe’s al Pay 2 years ago still work like the day I purchased them. Will be purchasing directly from a store next time to ensure it is authentic Dewalt product
I received and it shows only partially charged (1 bar out of 3) on the battery indicator. When I put in the charger for ~14 hours, the bar indicates same as before. Tested that on the tool and it worked only for half an hour.
This battery did not hold a charge. When it was charging the yellow light came on and the charger said the battery was full. When it was used it only lasted 20 seconds before going dead. I have two other batteries of the same make and model and they work fine. Must have been a dud. Will be returning to amazon for credit.
