Cordless Benefits and Drawbacks
Received as a birthday gift December, 2018 for my 20V MAX Reciprocating Saw. Battery is slim and protected nicely by its case. It also has a charge indicator (1, 2, or 3 bars that helps to know if I need to charge it or not. The charger itself is very simple to use. Just plug in the 2-prong cord to an outlet and slide the battery pack on until it clicks into place. Charges in a reasonable amount of time considering it is a 3 Ah pack - charger output is 2A, so a full charge will roughly take 1.5 hours (simple math: 2A for 1 hour is 2 Ah, plus 2A for 0.5 hours is 1Ah). It got me through a day's work on a simple closet remodel, but I recommend at least two batteries so you aren't stuck waiting 1.5 hours for it to charge. The cost seems high at first, but I am in hobby RC and Li-Po chargers run $100+ while 1Ah batteries run $30. You get this package for a less!

Benefits:
- Slim, rugged, ultra-portable, easy to use, and good value.

Drawbacks:
- Low power after charge drops, charge time could be shorter

Still 5 stars because this is what should be expected with this technology.

Needs charged only after a couple uses
i bought it a couple months ago because the 20v 2ah batteries that came with combo kit wouldn't push the circular saw or recipical saw, very weak. But the 3ah is just as bad

Much smaller 3 AH battery
i really like the new and improved 3 amp hour batteries. I bought a combo kit a few years ago and it included the old 3 amp hour batteries which are the same size as my new 5 AH batteries. These ones are the same same size as my old 1.5 AH ones. the base is a bit wider than the 1.5 AH but it is seemingly just as short. The performance seems equal to my old battery as well so i'm a fan.

So far mine work well
I got these batteries in a two pack and I bought the kit with charger that also came with a tool of your choice during a promo and mine work fine. They are a bulky battery as far as length and width but are thinner and lighter. I just use mine with the impact wrenches that I own and the reciprocating saw that I got in the promo. I don’t know about the longevity of durability because I haven’t had to recharge them much yet.

Been through three on these batteries in 18 months. Will not take a charge. Tried multiple chargers. Latest one stopped charging this past weekend off of a DCS355B oscillating tool. Battery marked 02/2018. Bought a 6AH for $149 yesterday, not a happy camper.
