C3 XCP High Capcaity Lithium-Ion Battery
The Craftsman C3 XCP Lithium-Ion High Capacity battery delivers 4 amp hour rating and an industry leading run time at up to 4 times that of a Ni-Cd battery. Craftsman C3 XCP batteries enhance the power of all C3 tools by increasing the torque by up to 20% (when compared to Ni-Cd batteries). The High Capacity XCP battery has up to 3x the charge cycles of a Ni-Cd Battery. It also allows you to use your battery in extreme weather conditions, so whether it's summer or winter you can use your tool when you need. The new Li-Ion batteries also include a push button fuel gauge on the front of the battery indicating the amount of power remaining. As the battery is used, the indicator will glow green, yellow and then red to indicate it is time to recharge so the consumer is never left wondering how much power is left. The High Capacity XCP lithium-ion battery should fully charge in one hour.

Two weeks after first charging this HC XCP battery, I used it to add 20 psi to two trailer tires that were really low using my C3 tire inflator. It was cold and the battery sat in snow during the whole ordeal and it didn't flinch. Indicator showed green when done. Then, without charging it, I used it to vacuum out a crew cab pick-up truck using the C3 hand held vacuum. Suction power was great the whole time. Now, a week and a half later, I have the battery in my C3 radio and it's been chugging along for a few hours playing tunes without a single charge since I first charged it. It's showing a yellow charge status now. For light duty jobs, like mine above, it will last quite a while. I can't wait to try out my new C3 7 1/4" circular saw and angle grinder. The rubberized corners are also convenient in holding the tool still on tilted surfaces. Overall, this High Capacity XCP is a great deal compared to competition and it's a solid foundation to any C3 tool collection.

I bought this battery to use in an impact driver. It hits for about five seconds, then shuts off. That makes the impact driver useless, it needs to hit for more time. I took the first battery back thinking it was defective, and it was replaced. The second was just as worthless.

I decided to buy batteries by the amp hour - Ah - Divide the price by Amp hours to get an idea of the battery's utility, assuming more is better. For some, more batteries is better. You decide. I put a lot of work into collecting this data. Sears does not make it easy. Nicad - 16 cells all in parallel = 0.9 Ah Compact Lion - five 1.3Ah cells =1.3 Ah Hi-cap - (double stack ten 1.5 Ah cells) Lion = 3.0 Ah Compact XCP - five 1.5 Ah cells = 1.5 Ah High Cap XCP - (double stack ten 2.0 Ah cells) = 4.0 Ah On a raw power basis, the High cap XCP is the best value, and the compact XCP is the worst (using sale prices). Since LiOn is newer technology I recommend the extended 3 year warranty. "Warranty" requires you mail in the bad battery and if you pester them enough they will eventually send you a gift card for the purchase price plus the warranty price.
The normal NI-CD batteries will only last a year. I Just upgraded to these so I don't know how long they will last. But man-alive these batteries charge fast & last way longer before needing charged. They even give your tools more power.

The size of a ni-cad and the benifits of lithium. I love the indicator that alone is worth the extra money when buying a lithium battery. I used this in my blower and I had full power for so long it was crazy. Love this battery.
The first time I used this battery I was using my craftsman drill driver #11910 to tighten a nut and forgot to set the ratchet setting on the drill and it almost broke my wrist. I am not exaggerating, it really hurt for quite awhile that day. It does seem to add more torque to the tools you plug it into. Needless to say, now when I use my drill to drive things I make sure the ratchet setting is not set on the drilling mode.

I got these for Christmas and the new charger as well have all the tools that this batterie will work with all. I now have a pile of tools that I can't use I have 10 of these bateries and only one is still half way working. I will take them back and hope they honor there warrante. I have been using Sears tools for 55 years and this is the 1st time I have been dissapointed. I have Makita batteries that I purchased back in 1998 and they still hold a chargs and work fine.
