The original battery died after about 4 years. This is a direct replacement.. Very pleased!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB As hoped...
The original battery was around 10 yrs old and wouldn't hold a charge after a couple of minutes of tough drilling.
Figured it would be a good idea to order a new battery rather than a new drill. So far the new battery has made the drill perform like new again, and at such a reasonable cost.

It's a Battery - they wear out - you replace them - some last longer than others - I am not sure yet how long this one is going to last. the battery that came with my drill did not seem to last very long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WINGMAKER SO FAR SO GOOD, GREAT PRICE
So far the battery hold its charge. Since the original battery where not Lithium... do not expect for this one to last 4 years. But the LOW price does help extend the life of my tool.
In reality you can't beet the price for a replacement battery.!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MV All four that I bought in November are DUDS! Buy these at your own risk!
I wish I had seen Elvis' review before I bought four of these Ryobi HP1 "9.6 volt" (so-called) packs at the end of November. But I did follow his advise in how to check them as soon as I got them. Here are the results:
Pack #1: 3.48 volts
Pack #2: 3.84 volts
Pack #3: 3.76 volts
Pack #4: 4.43 volts
Either all eight cells are at half their minimum voltage, or half the cells are completely dead.
Either way, these packs are all, simply put, duds.
Home Depot got a new supply of these in November but it sure does appear that they are even WEAKER than the ones Elvis tested.
BTW, did anyone else notice that the Elvis earlier review that he mentioned is GONE!
A review that apparently had test results showing how weak these are... is now gone.
Hmmmm... wonder why?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LadyM Renewed purchase
I've used this battery for my small drill that I use for craft projects. It's ideal for my needs, and takes up very little space. The charge stays up longer than my need, and with this second battery, which replaces the first one that lasted over a year, I feel its a bargain. Not bought in store as our local Home Depot doesn't stock this model 9.6 volt.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by woodymach Not a good purchase
Bought this battery despite many of the negative reviews - thought I might get lucky and get a good one. Unfortunately it wound up being bad just as others have said. Wound not hold a charge. Returned to the store for a refund.

As advertised. The battery pack is sealed brand new in original sealed plastic. Charged it up for several hours and after 2 days iinstalled in the electric drill, it still holds the charge.
