Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteelMagnolia 40 volt lithium ion battery
I finally got around to attempting to use new battery today, but it would not charge in the charger unit, with the charger showing bad/broken battery, straight out of the box, and first time I attempted to use it. I recharged my old battery and used it, then tried to charge the new battery, and it finally took a charge. Not sure what the problem was, but we'll see if it holds a charge first time I use it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stringtrimmerfan Product Arrived Promptly
What to say? It's a battery (for my string trimmer), and having two batteries is definitely better than having only one. The new 40V battery does not seem to run any longer than my old 36V, but it does fit my maybe-three-year-old string trimmer, which was my main concern. I tried buying the battery locally in both Lowe's and Home Depot, and neither carried the 40V, so an online purchase was my only option.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WeedWacker Needing a new charge for my yard!
I loved ordering this Black & Decker rechargeable battery online. I knew what I needed and I knew what they cost. Ordering on line saved me the time and gas, and parking and shopping for a item I needed. I received the battery 5 days after ordering, popped it in the charger. Next day I was trimming my lawn. The battery works great. Really satisfied.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PPaquet So far, so good on the life of the battery.
Read that some buyers of this battery had some bad experiences with it - it would not take any charge after a few uses. I have used it multiple times and no issues so far. I did have a concern when the battery life lights wouldn't come on and the charger wouldn't charge it (red flashing light)...but the battery simply overheated (first time out) and needed to cool down before being put on the charger. No problems since. The one thing I didn't like was that it costs $72.59. I bought the trimmer/blower kit WITH a battery for $149. No one can convince me that the battery should be that expensive when you have two pieces of equipment that cost a combined value of the battery...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JHA Less than full Amp-hour rating.
This battery was purchased as a backup for the battery in a B&D trimmer. I was disappointed to discover that the amp-hours rating of this battery is far less than the battery that came with the trimmer. It will discharge more rapidly. Both are 40 amp lithium-ion batteries.

Works as good as my 36 volt battery did. I'm satisfied and that's all that matters..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Geno not very powerful
Maybe I got a bad one. I can only run my compatible Black and Decker trimmer about 30 to 45 minutes on this battery. I expected a couple of hours out of each trim before recharging. I a very hesitant to plunk down another 80 bucks for another one if it is the same, but I may have to. I received the trimmer and battery as a gift, to replace a corded Black and Decker trimmer that had outlived it's life. I probably should invest the 80 bucks toward another corded trimmer.
