Re: Opinions wanted- aftermarket vs OEM lithium ion batteries
I would be a little wary of non-oem lithium-ion batteries, as they need good charging controllers to ensure they don't over charge or get too drained, and that's what generally gets skimped on when trying to make a battery of a giving Amp-Hour rating cheaper. And when a lithium-ion battery fails, it tends to be a very hot, hard to put out fire. And you naturally store all the batteries for your tools together, so that makes for a much bigger, hard to put out fire...
