Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on September 6, 2019
I am a huge Dewalt fan and own most of the XR brushless tools. I've been using the 5 Ah batteries in my string trimmer and blower, and would need at least two batteries to finish the yard...I needed more power. However, the 60V Flexvolt batteries did not get great reviews on shelf-life and performance. When I saw these standard 6 Ah batteries on sale I decided to "bite the bullet" and give them a shot. Whew I am glad I did! These batteries last forever...I can trim all of my walkways, driveway, curb, and back fence...and still have enough juice to use the blower to clean off the driveway/walkways.

A few notes on the quality:
Some of the Dewalt batteries I have are made in China, some in Korea; but these are made in Japan...who also makes the internal 18650 cells as well. The quality of the plastic casing is excellent (no tooling marks or excessive flash) and the color of the cell is much closer to the actual tools.

Finally:
Keep in mind these batteries are BIG. If you just need a battery for a drill, or impact driver...a 4 or 5 Ah battery will do just fine, as the 6 Ah can make the tool somewhat heavy and cumbersome. For longer and more demanding jobs such as yard-work or sawing lumber, these large 6 Ah batteries are great and will save you some time and keep you going longer.
