        A:  I'm sure they so, but we are having a hard time finding the SKU number. The battery used in this tool is a Lithium Cell CR927 3V.

          A:  No, this tool will not work with stainless steel poly pipe pinch clamps. This tool is for use with stainless steel PEX pinch clamps only.

            Tool won’t release
            After a dozen clamps the tool would not release, like many other reviews. I never tightened past when the indicator light came on. On closer inspection the small gear inside appears to be stripped. See photo.
              Fool proof crimps!
              Great tool, rough in the entire job with no leaks!

              Useless, do not recommend!
              On the third crimp, using 1" stainless crimp ring, the tool would NOT release. Sadly, it was on a connection at the bottom of a yard hydrant and was subsequently buried by 5' of soil. What was even worse, I had to drive over 30 minutes away to purchase a replacement. If I could give this 5 negative stars, I would.
                Makes PEX products a breeze
                I love this tool. I am remodeling my bathroom, and updating the plumbing to PEX. This pinch clamp worked flawlessly, and made getting to the pinch clamps easy (especially in the tight spaces for the tub plumbing). The blue LED is super bright, so when the pinch is complete you can tell instantly (even when the light is facing away from you). It also came with a spare set of batteries, really nice. I just wish that it had a carrying case or bag, but I will use one of my many old tool cases instead.

                  Great for Tight Spots
                  It worked great for installing a sink. Was able to get into tight spots to install 1/2 inch Pex Pipe and Crimp rings. It does require somewhat of a strong grip once get the pump-action started. The blue light comes on once the pinch clamp is secured which is a nice feature. The tool released right off the pinch clamp. I made 8 connections and did not have a problem with the tool. $50 is a great value for pex pinch clamp tool.

                    Locked up on me first time.
                    I was in a bad spot behind my furnace trying to get a pex apollo crimp ring aroud a 1 inch pecks pipe. I had a small leak from an old copper shut off valve. I thought it be an easy project to remove the corroded ball valve and replace it with four packs clamps and a sweat to pex conversion. Boy was i wrong. First of all my original pecks tool only worked up to 3/4 of an inch pex pinch rings, so I had to make a run to Home Depot at 6:30 at night. I got the one hand pinch clamp tool made by Apollo. I played with it to make sure it released as it should. The pex rings were behind my furnace. Of course it has to be a tight spot and the tool locked up on me all four tumes. The last time I was in the far corner and I had to leave the tool on the pipe. I can’t get it off and I had to take a shower because I was so dirty from working over the furnace. Don’t buy this product!!! If you do your research you’ll see that other people have complained that it locked up on them and you can’t get it off. I was rather unfortunate because it Happens after the first clamp. And thenshe sits behind my furnace still attached to the pipe.

                      Love this tool. Ratchets down the clamp and let's you know when you're tight enough with a blue LED light on the side.

                      Will not release the clamp after the 10th use, had to cut out pipe and elbows I’d just spent an hour running.

                        Broke on the first crimp
                        Really disappointed with this tool. Crimped my first ring and the tool wouldn't let go of the ring. No directions on what to do if this happens.
