I’m looking at some new batteries for my 20v DeWalt power tools.  There is a significant difference in cost on eBay between DeWalt badged batteries and offbrand.  


Anybody have experience with offbrand batteries?  I typically buy brand name (now lithium version) batteries for my kids toys/video games/flashlights due to the prevalence of offbrand a leaking or dying quickly.

Li Ion or NiCad? NiCad at least, don't tend to explode.

Beware of buying the more expensive branded batts from E-bay, too. Lots of counterfeits out there.

These are examples what I currently have.  The little thin guys are worthless for any prolonged or heavy work.  The 3.0ah battery saved me from waiting on the little guys to recharge while drilling holes and driving screws for the play set earlier this year.

I have a lot of battery power tools being a Ford technician.  you're way better off using the Branded batteries. by the way Mac batteries and DeWalt batteries are the same. you should see if you can find one of the higher amp hour rated batteries that Mac has like a 6 or 9 amp hour
Just a thought

Lanterns are like tools. 
You can not have too many unless your wife says so!!

Gas is what you use for washing parts diesel is for making power!

I use mine daily. I recommend going to Amazon, finding the knockoff and making sure it has lots of good reviews... I'm impressed myself...I will say the plastic is more brittle if you're prone to dropping tools. Ironically I don't use that weed eater everyday... But my drills and impacts I do.

We bought some knock-off batteries for our cordless electric grease gun. I think we got the highest rated units on Amazon, somewhere around $40 for a pair. It's only been a few months but I have been very satisfied with their performance. Especially when you consider how much less the knock-offs are.

I strictly use Dewalt brand 20 volt batteries. I have between 30 to 40 batteries in various sizes. I took a Dewalt toolbox and turned it into a Battery box..

Of necessity I have had to buy some off brand replacement batteries both Li-ion and (Ni-cad Milwaukee drill motor), I don't know for sure but would say maybe slightly less Amp Hours actual use than the ones I was replacing, but at a quite reduced price. The Li-ion batteries I bought for my Samsung Galaxy S4 or what ever it was at the time I could tell better how they compared, about 10% less in practical use. I would buy them again if needed.

Ed--Most of the old Milwaukee Ni-Cad tools will accept new Li-Ion batts. Just get the same voltage.

That's why I'm all Milwaukee. I can get behind a brand that maintains forward compatibility.
