I bought a kit of Skil battery operated tools a couple of years ago, and was relatively satisfied until I got a Mikita kit with Li-Ion batteries. I found that I was using the Mikita drills, etc., 5 times for every one that I used the Skil. I did occasionally use the Skil reciprocating saw or circular saw, since these were not in the Mikita kit. Unfortunately, the NiCd batteries ran down quickly, would not hold a charge, and finally just crumped. I ordered another NiCd (mistake), and even though it was new, it couldn't measure up to the Li-Ion Mikita tools.

I was ready to toss out the Skil kit, but since I occasionally need a reciprocating saw, I sprung for the Li-Ion and charger. Big bucks! Man, am I happy! The Skil product doesn't hold a charge quite as long, and doesn't charge as fast as the Mikita battery. But it is a great replacement for the miserable NiCd that came with the kit originally.

I absolutely recommend this battery and charger if you have several Skil tools that are not duplicated by Mikita. You will be delighted. If you're just getting new drills or drivers, get the Mikita products. They are better constructed, lighter, and last longer.

No complaints so far. I upgraded my 5 year old Skil set to these new batteries and they work better than new. I just finished referbing our new home and the batteries did not let me down one time. Just remember to get the correct charger. The nicad charger will not charge these new batteries.

You CAN NOT use your NiCad battery charger to recharge this battery. If you need to purchase a new charger it will cost you about $56 along with the cost of this battery $50 ($105 total) you ought to just purchase the new Skil drill that comes with a battery, case, charger and a few bits for $92. It's cheaper and you'll have an extra drill. Don't get screwed like I did. Yes I bought the battery and now I need the charger.

A nice option to buying a new set of lithium tools, at least for my needs. So far, so good. These batteries are easy to remove, unlike the old ni-cad batteries which became impossible. They seem more powerful, and hold a charge well. Run time seems good, and they charge quickly. Being half the size and weight as the ni-cads is also a plus.

I don't think that most people are going to want to invest more money in 2 batteries and a charger than they paid for a complete tool set, but I like the tools (even though the color design Skil used makes them look like a kid's toy raygun), and I especially like the drill and circular saw. I didn't want to just throw the set away. Also, this is the only cordless brand I've seen where the circular saw's blade is on the right, which works for southpaws. I can see the line as I cut. Re-use made sense for me, anyway, since I can't easily or cheaply replace the lefty saw.

Described:
Skil SB18C-LI Slide Base Battery Pack
Shipped:
Skil SB18B-LI battery only ... not sure C battery exist, but the C charger does exist

Described:
Includes one lithium-ion battery
Power plus system that is lithium-ion and Ni-Cad battery compatible
Shipped:
Power plus system to charge Li-ion and Ni-Cad batteries does NOT come with this item ... booboo!
The charger model SC118B-LI or SC118C-LI is not included ... confusion all around!

IMPORTANT
Some people have misinterpreted the description as this battery can be charged using older Ni-Cad charger.
Please don't use Ni-Cad charger with this battery ... you can damage the battery, or worse.

EDIT:
Amazon has reviewed this item description and the only change was to correct the model number to SB18B-LI.
The description still states "Power plus system that is lithium-ion and Ni-Cad battery compatible" which is the charger that DOES NOT come with this item, just the battery. Hello .... anybody home!?

at least compared to my old batteries. it's smaller and doesn't fit the old charger, but works greats and is way better than the original battery that was bigger, heavier and didn't last as long. we'll see how the longevity is though....
