I've always been satisfied with my Porter Cable tools but the NiCad batteries seemed to be anemic. I bought one LithIon battery to try to get better use out of my tools. But I needed a charger with the LithIon capability which this charger does. Not only does it do a great job on the new battery, It has rejuvenated my NiCads to performancde tat I thought they should have always had. So well worth the price and half of what the Box stores wanted.
Bought this for my husband and I wasn't quite sure which volts his batteries were. After he opened the package he told me his batteries were NiCad not Lithium. Had to show him that this charger will do both! He was wonderfully surprised!!!
I bought this as a replacement to my dead charger for my Hammer drill. I was not aware, until I got it that it charges several types of batteries and in charging my older drill, the drill seems too have more power and last longer. Porter Cable has done it again !!!
