Deal or Dud - Ebay Craftsman C3 19.2V XCP Batteries

Came across these batts on eBay / Amz, the price made me take a second look. I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with them? And do they use the same charger the original C3 charger.

Deal or dud..... it's a crap shoot. Read the reviews or in case of ebay.... the negative reviews.

You usually get what you pay for.

I have tried aftermarket DeWalt and Paslode batteries and they were hit or miss. Some wouldn't even clip properly into the tool while the other in a twin pack would. The battery capacity on the ones that worked wasn't what I expected and was worse than brand name.

It's a cheap China made POC, put the $ towards a real replacement battery otherwise you will be buying another one soon.
