Happy with battery I ordered
I use this product to power my electric drill. For some reason the one that came with the drill just died on me. I only had it for about 16 months and then it would not charge at all. This new battery works like a charm. I just hope it doesn't disappoint me and die like the 1st one did.

Skil 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion Battery
Very comfortable drill to hold and use. Medium duty power tool, great for around the house and general drilling and screw driving. Compact size, good lightning of the drilling area, and useful "power guage" for battery life. Good value and run time overall.
