Battery and Charger Reviews

Our charger and battery reviews for cordless tools evaluate battery packs, battery chargers, and other technologies and accessories. We tackle cordless batteries, chargers, and accessories for everything from 3.6V to 120V systems. A few years ago we would have said from 3.6V to 36V. Recently, however, advances in outdoor power equipment have yielded battery packs with much higher voltages. Add new products like DeWalt FlexVolt technology, and you can see there is a lot of room for adept battery reviews. Even the new Milwaukee 9.0 Ah High Demand battery shook up the market with power reserves never before seen in cordless power tools.
Chargers and Battery Reviews for Tradesmen
For the average tradesmen, they want a battery that will last. A lot of times that goes along with the tool being used. Other times, however, a superior battery platform can also bring the best out of a cordless tool. Better batteries bring longer run-times and more power (thanks to higher power densities in lithium-ion batteries). When new battery technology and products come out, we let you know with our battery reviews and break down the facts.

Ultimate Battery Power UBP5000BT-DW-CH Battery Belt Review

Ultimate Battery Power Battery Belt

If you have a lot of DeWalt, Ryobi or Craftsman 18V cordless tools and find yourself frequently running out of battery power, the Ultimate Battery Power Battery Belt is something you should definitely check out. Repetitious or continuous use of cordless power tools can be troubling, since you normally need to keep a collection of batteries on the ready. Recently, we spent some time with the new Ultimate Battery Power UBP5000BT-DW-CH Battery Belt which came with the battery adapter for top post style 18V DeWalt cordless tools. The concept behind this battery belt is that it gives you up to 3.5 times longer run-time – and that means getting through a project on a single charge and with no battery changes.
