This is the 2nd XCP I have had and I do notice a difference between these and the older Lithium batteries. They ARE costly but if you NEED the extended use time for what you are doing, these are worth the extra. One thing, spend the extra $10 for the warranty, it is nice to be able to bring them back and get a new one free if and when they quit. As for lasting, I haven't had a problem yet. My 1st one is about year old and I use it at least a couple of times a week. I have a lot of C3 tools I use everyday and quite a few batteries from the old Ni-Cads to these new ones. The Ni-Cads last the longest as far as from time from purchase but these actually go longer between charges by a LONG shot. I will be purchasing the XCPs from now on. If you can afford these, buy them!
Was about to buy all new tools when I found these batteries. Highly recommend! If you're not smart enough to know you can't charge a lithium battery in a NiCd charger don't leave a review!

This lightweight battery lasts through several jobs, powering the C3 drill and the C3 shop vacuum for clean-up afterwards. Caught it on sale at price below **** offerings.
Great features such as the push-button that when pushed lights up to tell you how much of a charge thereis remaing on the battery. Fits and operates all of my Craftsman C3 power tools.

the battery is so much better than just the litiion ion. it has more power and last much longer. still light weight. it charges faster than both the nicad and the lithion ion as well.
I rated this five stars based on performance not cost, just to be clear. I got it bundled with a drill. I would not have bought it separately but I'm glad I have it. This battery is so small and light some of my tools feel top heavy when I'm using it. It makes long repetitive tasks less fatiguing. I preferred it when driving hundreds of deck screws, but I really needed two. It recharges in 30 minutes, so I could have easily rotated between them. Cool feature: The charge status indicator shows charge level while recharging too so you know when it's almost done. Rubber pads on the bottom guard against impact and keep it from sliding around. Here is the problem: They are 80% the cost of a big XCP battery but they only hold 38% the power. You'd really have to factor in the light weight and reduced fatigue to justify the high cost. Maybe it would be worth it for a person who used it all day every day in a production environment. Great battery,glad I have mine.
