Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Black & Decker LBXR20 20-Volt MAX Extended Run Time Lithium-Ion Cordless Tool Battery (Lawn & Patio)
The lithium battery charges about an hour faster than the regular battery. I use the batteries for my weed whackers. I have both types of weed whackers. One uses a regular battery (24 volt) and the other uses a lithium ion battery (20 volt). The lithium and regular batteries both provide about 15 - 20 minutes of power. Once the power from the lithium "dies" and it stops working immediately. The regular battery slowly "dies" and the weed whacker slowly stops working. As previously stated, the positive thing about the lithium battery is that it takes less time to recharge. I was told that I will be able to recharge the lithium battery more times than the regular battery. I have not had both types long enough to find out. What ever type battery you have, make sure you have 1-2 spares to finish the job.

I just got a question -
Does this battery changes on both 110 volts and 220/240 volts ?

Bottom of charger says: Input: 0.1A 120V AC 60Hz Output: 0.2A . It's for use ONLY with B&D LITHIUM 20V MAX batteries having unique plug-in power terminals.

Batteries last about 3 charges, then fail.

I am so disappointed in Black and Decker Batteries. 5 to 10 hours to charge come on. I have bought three and one was an 18 V the other 20 V and the 18 V lasted about 10 min. the 20 not much longer if they do not last long why don't you put two battery chargers in the packages or a battery that can be charged in an hour. I have had it with Black and Decker sorry will try another brand next time.
