    I paid £20 for a 4ah battery....you could even buy the stickers for them with yours or your company name on them..I've also seen bare cases so you can add your own cells...it always amazed me on eBay how people buy batteries sold as not working...I guess they are going to put new cells in the case.....Ryobi 3rd party batteries are peanuts.there is 6.0 ah for around £45....has for my DeWalt 9.0ah battery won't charge from a standard 18volt charger as it is 54 volt rated has well ..so I have the DeWalt site radio which will charge these....the flexvolt 9ah is 9.0ah at 18 volt and I think 3ah at 54 volts....biggest DeWalt battery I've seen yet is a 12ah...ok if you build a ebike

  • I bought inserts for my tf ...at the time I chose to renew I just didn't want to pay the money they were asking for new badges or should I say old stock....so on went the sticker inserts and never really thought about them again....although I know those original ones are the best....

    My impact driver was the first of my DeWalt purchases and I have used it on a daily basis....I first bought a 4ah 3rd party battery which I was very happy with untill one day it came loose from the gun...I noticed cracks appearing from the casing screws which opened up to the point where the screws broke out and needs a new case...so I suspect it didn't handle the vibration from the impact guns hammer....but would of been better used on the drill....my DeWalt angle grinder on the other hand wants to eat 5ah batteries...hence me buying the 9ah flexvolt..it turns those tools into beasts..but a bit heavy when fitted on the impact gun...wouldn't touch mains gear any more it's a great sense of freedom to lose that wire.... although the impact gun is a great tool..I've only had limited use for it at home....did learn a lesson not to use the gun on car jacks...in the USA they sold a socket that connected the impact driver to scissor jacks...oh I thought...I made one and used it on the mg...it was in the air like a F1 racecar...worked for about 10 jackings before the jack gave in to the abuse...chucked the socket in the nearest skoda

    Ryobi one is good but if you need more runtime I think you can get adapters to run DeWalt batteries on them recommend at least 5ah on most kit when giving it some umph

  • I would put the mg away for now and self isolate for a while..just too much going on there for a unemployed person to cope with.

    I've had this DeWalt dcf899 impact driver for quite a while now...it is the same has the Mac one has DeWalt made them for Mac...it is a fantastic tool and is used on a daily basis stripping hgv and psv engines..I also use a Milwaukee which is slightly better but the DeWalt has it by price....I've seen them for as little has £136 bare bones...I've expanded my DeWalt range has they share the same batteries....the battery fitted on my impact gun is a flexvolt ..means it can run on all DeWalt 18v tools and 54v tools..has you can now get 54volt chainsaws and the like..but the cheapest I got this battery was £125...but it has plenty of balls...it is a 9ah and you can tell the difference has the run time on my tools is amazing..
    A good thing to note is that this DeWalt has 3 torque settings so yes it can be used on smaller stuff as well without flipping the mg on its back.....I didn't have this impact driver when I did my cambelt ..but I had access to some great tools..my 3/4 drive long breaker bar made light work of that nut .using the proper locking tool was a doddle and made the cambelt change easy.
