Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MasterTechMike Great batteries, horrible packaging
These XC 4.0 batteries run for a very long time in any M12 tool that I have. They're especially good in the stick light that runs for hours each day at work. Tools stand up while waiting in my tool cart and I get more power out of my electric ratchets, drills and 1/4" impact screwdriver. The downside is that the increased footprint size means the tools can't be jammed down in small spots where the standard batteries fit. This is a small concession to make for the very long run time. These batteries are significantly heavier than the standard Li-on batteries that come with most tools.
The worst part about this two-pack of batteries is the packaging. "Theft deterrent" also mean "Frustrate the consumer who paid about $100 for this product and now is annoyed by this incredibly terrible packaging." This does not lower my product rating because it's not a drawback of the actual batteries, just a source of headache from overzealous loss prevention departments.
Overall, be prepared for the awful packaging and you'll be happy for many years to come with these great batteries.

They definitely increase the power of the tools. Run time is better. Charge time is longer (naturally). I will replace a few of my smaller batteries as they play out, but plan on keeping some for the confined spaces. When it comes to using the tools in an open area I will use the XC's.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Richard This saw came with a bad battery,
I also purchased a extended warranty for this band saw. Took it back to Home Depot and they told me that this store couldn't take a loss to replace the battery. They told me they was going to send me a online gift certificate for $99.00 and come back and purchase a new battery with it. NEVER GOT IT.
Now I have spent a lot of time and gas money and I have a band saw with a bad battery. Not going waste my time and money ever again on Home Depot.

I've only owned these batteries for about three weeks so I can't say much more than they perform as expected. My only gripe was they are 3mAh. I was hoping to find extra 4mAH batteries. For the price, these are good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by boatman great addition to a great product
I really like the drill kit that I purchased. I purchased the larger capacity batteries and I am even more satisfied with my purchase of the drill kit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ApprenticeElectrician Great deal, Great support
I had bought these batteries in early January. While using them in my 12V Impact I happen to notice the top plastic part of the battery had broken when it was removed. I went back to Home Depot because it hadn't even been 2 weeks since I bought the batteries. Home Depot took great care of me and I have 2 perfect batteries yet again. Home Depot has made a life long customer out of this transaction ONLY because I was well taken care of by the company and that doesn't happen many places these days. Batteries are still working great and I use atleast 1 everyday!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 4Subaru High capacity battery at a great price
High capacity battery allows the tool to work at its best, and it appears to to have more torque !
