This is the second time I have purchased, from Battery Mart, two replacement batteries for a Porter Cable hammer drill I have had for 20 years. I like the drill too much to just put the cost toward a new drill and more up-to-date batteries. These are the exact same batteries I bought from Battery Mart several years ago. Other replacement batteries before these did not last long. I will use Battery Mart for all my power cell needs.
The battery took a little longer than I expected, due to weather conditions. The battery was very weak and it took several tries to get it to charge. It works great in my old drill.
Replaced my original equipment batteries which I had rebuilt a few times by a battery and light company. Those took too long and were expensive. Last time they only lasted 8 months. Original equipment batteries are no longer available.
This replacement from Battery Mart fits perfectly, and the charge seems to be lasting longer than the originals. Time will tell if they last in the long term, because I have only had them for a few weeks, but they look very promising.
Reasonably priced. Functionally equal.
Very happy with the outcome are the batteries that I purchased ,gave them a fast charge, and working very well in my 14 volt Porter-Cable drill ,thank you.I would recommend purchasing again from battery mart
Repeat: Good people to deal with.
Thought I was going to have to junk the old Porter cable work horse but with this battery at a reasonable price now back in action!!
