Worked for me. I use them in a hand drill often. No one ever told me not
to and based on experience so far, I'm going to continue.
Spade bit wee also mentioned. Any I've ever had wee crap. Maybe there are
some good ones, but I stopped looking many years ago.
i like the sears c-3 assortment. they came out with a lithium battery
and it works with the older c-3 stuff as well as the newer models that
come with the lithium batteries - wait for a sale! They have a drill
driver with radio, charger and lithium power (2 - I think) for around
99 bucks when its on sale. I;ve had my C-3 set since they first came
out (5years?) and the original batteries are working fine. I have the
set with the saws all, drill driver, mini skill saw, sander and silly
light (but it has come in handy - better than a couple of D cells and
the old flashlight).
I mainly use the drill driver and saws all and, though a hobbyist/
homeowner, I've built quite a lot of stiff using this set and it
appears to be going strong yet.
I have read where it may be better to rebuild your battery pack than
buy NOS packs that may have been sitting an a warehouse since the
model first appeared on the market. Shared for what it is worth.
I would suggest Rigid based on the 12v drill I have from them and the
lifetime service warranty
I recently got one (father's day 2009) to replace the dead batteries in my
9.6 v Mikitas
So far I am real happy with the Rigid, compact size, lots of power, 2
batteries, long life life fast recharge time
