Great Battery, Not so great design..
As a previous review stated, these batteries are great and they had a good idea trying to go with a compact design in a 3Ah setting. However just like the other reviewer stated, I will never use them again because I use the belt clips on my tools and with the belt clips on all of my tools, these batteries do not fit. Therefore, these batteries are just taking up space and wish I could trade them for a couple 5Ah (DCB205) batteries or possibly the new six amp hour batteries (DCB206) depending on the size; I would have to see the six amp power ones to see if it wouldn’t give me the same problem with the belt clips hitting.

Overall the DCB 230 batteries are another quality product as per usual with DeWalt. I just do not like the form factor because I prefer the belt clips over everything. it is a bummer mainly because I own just about every DeWalt tool they make and I am extremely happy with everything except for these batteries it would honestly be easier to list the DeWalt tools I do not have rather than the ones I do have as it would be a shorter list.

I would really enjoy the opportunity to trade these batteries in for something that works better for me such as the DCB 205 or possibly the DCB 206 it’s just a shame to have such quality batteries just collecting dust on the shelf because I can’t use them with the current belt clips or maybe they could redesign the clips.

I got two of these batteries when I bought the new
7 1/4 20 volt circular saw. The batteries are to wide. They don’t fit in my radio and the rub on the belt clips on my drills. I had to bend them out! Quite frankly I’d rather have the other batteries over these. They are cumbersome. I own close to 60 batteries and am disappointed. I won’t buy any More of these ever and will tell others to stick with the older style
I love my deealt. Have 9 impacts. Couple hammer drills 4 non hammer drills few circular saw multiple saws all’s and so on. All in the 20 volt! I love the 60 volt line! Have two 60 volt table saws saws all circular saw 12 in sliding miter saw and just bought the chainsaw. All 60 volt and I’m more then impressed! Incredible! Have some 40 volt also! Great tools.
But dewalt messed up with these wide batteries!
