Looking for a second battery for a recent CL purchase of a 19.2 volt Craftsman impact gun(damn that thing works good) and one of those adjustable flash lites(damn that thing is almost blinding!) ... so I go to Lowes to see if they have one. None in stock but they can order one like I got in that CL purchase - 1.2 amp hour .... 79 beans eek

Now I would rather support a local brick and mortar but what-the-fugg !

Looked on eBay .... a 4.0 amp hour ... same battery WITH a indicator.... with a 5 year warranty...

FOR 28 clams .... delivered to my door !!

AND STILL no sales tax !!

i would have to agree with this.
it seems like most parts places, and a lot of retail merchandise stores don't stock much anymore. the usual response is we can order it and get it in a few days, you still have to pay full price though. go on ebay, amazon and other online stores and get it faster and for less $$ even after paying for shipping.


perception is 90% of reality

I have craftsman and ryobi cordless tools. When I bought them I got them at the store, but lately if I want/need another battery, charger or tool I just search on ebay. Usually get items WAY cheaper.

Not surprised yer battery shopping already - those craftsman branded batteries are just plain crap. A few years back I bought a 19.2v leaf blower and a 19.2v hedge trimmer. Both came with a battery and one of them came with a charger. Both the batteries were useless in under 6 months. Surfed the bay, found some unbranded chinese crap for cheap enough to roll the dice and several years later it's still going strong.


75 Charger SE - 440/4, cop suspension
76 Daytona - survivor
76 Daytona - tweaked
77 PW - macho clone, sno-commander, frankenram
79 RC - this was your fathers 4x4
79 LRE - More fun than it looks
