Researched a replacement. Batteries Plus rebuild old battery pack $80. Purchase one off shelf $69.95 Walmart's was $37.88 Can't say how Batteries Plus unit would have been, But my new one from Walmart had more power and lasts longer them the OEM from by original SKIL package. Surprised and happy customer. (Normally I wouldn't take the time to post a review, but it deserved a good one).
It meets my needs and replaces the prior battery. Although, the fuel gauge is not present on the newer design.
The batteries that I received were not the same as the ones pictured. They have a shorter height but will still work in my drill. There is no power gauge on the back like my original batteries but I don't rely on it anyway. The locking mechanism is stiffer than the original batteries. You may not be able to release the battery with one hand.
I bought this item because the item in the picture was the form factor that I needed. The item shipped was a different form, lower profile and wider. While ie will power my drill, the drill won't fit in it's case with the battery installed on the drill, which was the sole reason I replaced my old battery (also the same form factor as the new battery).
Rare discount price on this item that was IMMEDIATELY available at my local WalMart. Too early to tell if the charge-holding capability is as good as my current units.
I purchased the unit because of the sale price and to go with my new Skil hand-held vacuum. Works well.
Does not have an indicator to tell you how full or empty the charge is, but it is less expensive and lower profile than the OEM batteries. It works just as well. I don't know how long it will hold a charge or how long it will last, but I am glad to have a battery that works & will last.
Was going to throw out my Skil drill when I came upon replacement batteries at a really good price. Got order without much wait, powered up and my dead drill is brand new again!!!! Thanks Walmart. The design of the replacement batteries fit perfectly but the battery is a bit larger not permitting me to use the orilginal drill case. Minor compared to having to toss out a good drill!
Fits my 5 year old saw & drill kit just fine. I did not want to buy a new kit, and the other batteries were just about shot so this is what I ended up buying. I hope this one lasts another 5 years.
Works perfect, Good value
However, the skil dust buster we had to buy this for doesn't actually work very well, so it seems unfortunate that we had to pay so much to complete the dust buster and not have it work very well.
We needed a replacement battery. Ours were very old.
The battery charged quickly and worked perfectly with the power tools minus the lights showing the charged status.
Although the general profile of these batteries has changed some from the originals they fit the Skil tools and Charges for the models named perfectly.
Got the replacement battery for my husband. Put the battery on my charger and it was good to go. Plan on ordering another one for backup.
great item fast shipment best price on the internet i found
count find a better price anywhere, shipped fast, easy pick up
It works great and I can keep my power tools running.
Bought these to replace SB18A packs. The originals had a 3 stage meter to show the battery charge but the new ones do not. Instead they have a single white light to show when the tool is in use for when you forget that you are pulling the trigger. New packs are slightly small and lighter (good) but are lacking the rubberized protective base which may reduce their life.
