Class Action Suit Waiting to Happen

B&D better get their act together on the 18v Single Source battery or they'll be shelling out millions to customers worldwide via a Class Action lawsuit for false advertisement. Like all rechargeable tool batteries, they are way over priced, but B&D has taken it to a new level... the 18v Ni-Cad batteries are absolutely the worst both in holding a charge and producing continuous amperage to adequately run high power tools. The fellow that owns 6 batteries to keep his tools going is conservatively spending over $200 in batteries and chargers --- how smart is that? I own or have owned Porter Cable, Dewalt, Skil and Craftsman cordless power tools... all of these brand's batteries out perform the B&D batteries in time on the job and overall battery life by light years. The "customer support" concerning this issue is non-existent ...obviously the company has taken the cheap route to compete.

Pros: Verstility of tools

Cons: Terrible batteries, not upgradable, no support!

Batteries won't hold charge

The 18V Single Source battery worked great for about 9 charges and now won't hold a charge at all. If I could find another battery I was sure would work I would buy that one.

Pros: Cordless

Cons: Batteries wear out extremely fast.

I am not sure what typy cells are in this battrey. It's web page "tech specs" only states "voltage 18 volts" and does not state that it rechargable.

I am somewhat afrid to put it in my B&D ni-cad charger since the battery does not say ni-cad, but states "single source" What in the world does that mean? So since it fits into my charger, and the HPB18'S are ni-cad's, I will assume mine is also, I will give it a try, since it has a 2 year warranty. B&D needs to doing a better job in identifying this product. I have had three of the HPB18 ni-cad's destroyed by faulty chargers that came with my Firestorm tools, but after buying my new big ni-cad charger, I am getting good performance from the remaining battery.

Pros: NA

Cons: NA

Switching Brands

I was an old B&D since I started buying corded tools as a teen (Now in my 60s!)and swore by their quality. About ten years ago I started investing in 18V NiCad cordless and was satisfied and prepared to replace batteries as needed. Unfortunately I had poor results from the 18V brad nailer and discovered it was discontinued, no doubt from the endless problems others reported. Then in the past couple of years I was astounded by the B&D decision to bring out the better lithium ion batteries and NOT make their older tools compatible so you would have to invest in tools all over again! That was the last straw and I have after many years switched to the Ryobi brand where tools and chargers take either types of batteries. Sorry B&D but your decision to force older and loyal customers into buying new tools is just greedy and short sighted!

Pros: The portability and power of 18V tools is handy and needed when working in areas where no electricity is available.

Cons: The different quality and durability of B&D 18V NiCad batteries is too hit and miss. There is also no reason that B&D could not have engineered their older tools to accept the newer and more dependable 18V lithium batteries that are today's standard across the different brands. As such, I have given up on B&D brand. The frustration and poor quality of their 18V brad nailer, now discontinued was one more thing making me switch to a competing brand.

This is the worst 18v battery I have ever used

I bought a tree lopper and this batter was shipped with it. I have used it about 10 times and each time I use it, the battery runs flat faster. I am really surprises that B&D have the temerity to sell such a rubbish product - built in China to a price (which is obviously pennies judging by the performance)and it shows. A decent aftermarket replacement battery would be to expensive, so I am going write this off as a duff purchase and go and buy a Ryobi pruner. Damned annoying. Never have this sort of problem with Bosche products.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: It has the power of a cat fart after 10 uses. It is not fit for purpose.
