Product Description

Amazon.com

Get more power and run time from this re-designed battery pack by Porter-Cable. By eliminating the "tower cell" that resides in the post of clip-on batteries, this slide-on battery keeps all cells on an even playing field. This prevents premature failure of the battery due to one cell taking more abuse from charging and discharging than the others. An added benefit is that the slide-on style is much easier to remove and replace than typical clip-on style batteries. The 2 amp hour capacity provides more power and longer run time. It fits Porter-Cable's 9866 12-volt drill and 869 flashlight.

My 5 year-old Porter Cable drill-driver gets lots of use. I replaced the first original battery through Amazon.com a year or so ago and was satisfied with it. So when the 2nd original battery died last month, I ordered through A.com again.

Great drill but crappy batteries. I hope this replacement battery lasts longer than the original. I bought this drill because I used one like it at work and really felt it to be a good tool. Our company no longer uses these drills because the batteries don't last. The jury is still out on this replacement. Porter Cable should come up with a better battery for this quality tool. I know that 12v are almost passe but, hey...how about some corporate responsibility? and respect for the customer and need I go on about land fills and throw away thinking.

Kind of hard to justify spending $65 on a replacement battery when a new drill/driver doesn't cost much more, but then again, who wants to throw out a perfectly good tool on account of a battery? Manufacturers know we face this dilemma, and thus can get away with selling you $3 worth of NiCad cells in a plastic shell for $65. It should be a crime. Then again, the battery does work, and restored the tool to former glory. Indeed, a dilemma.

Super item and at great price fast shipping. Bought 2 of them.

Porter-cable is the best drill out there in my opinion. I have hade many big name one's and the cheap throw away junk ones in the past. I still have the porter- cable drill I bought in 2000 just recent bought these 2 batteries for it. You pay a little more for the Porter-Cable products

but they are worth it. You get what you pay for.

I wanted to have two batteries so I could be using one while charging the other during projects. This battery works great. It holds a charge for quite a while. Excellent packaging. A high quality product.

This is a very good drill the battery fits in, but alas it wears out fast. Porter cable should beef up replacement batteries for customers buying them.

My husband has an older model drill and needed a battery. My choice would have been to buy a new drill but he insisted so we bought the Porter Cable Battery.
Perfect. Works great and strong! Thanks for continuing to make batteries for older models.
