I have bought a few Dewalt batteries NEW on ebay for about half of what they cost at Home Depot.

I just had a couple of 18v Milwaukee batteries rebuilt at Batteries Plus for $65 each so far so good.

I have had some 18V Dewalt batteries rebuilt and they worked out great. It is much cheaper than new ones.

I bought replacement batteries off Ebay for my Makita and they hold a charge longer, have worked great. About 1/2 the price of new at Home Depot.

gotta agree with the rebuild option. a lot of the ones you buy on sale are at the end of the shelf life. i have a local guy build mine and they are twice the originals.

Do what several people on eBay are doing. They are buying the tools/tool kits when they go on sale, keep the batteries and then sell the tools. They basically get the batteries for nothing if/when they sell the tools. I use Craftsman rechargeable tools and I have bought several brand new tools w/o the battery on eBay.

I don't have an active selling eBay account or I would do it too. It's a pretty good idea in my opinion.

I really use my cordless portaband hard, its made by stout, nice tool but the factory batteries are pathetic. I had voltman on ebay rebuild 1 battery with his best cells. that one battery will outlast 3 stock batteries, then sit in the truck for a long weekend and still be fresh. The previous one lasted about 14 months jobsite use. Not bad for about $90 shipped. MartyD
