Beware of anything from B&D with their Ni-cad batteries. The batteries are junk. Black & Decker no longer exist anyway, they were bought out by Stanley and are now called Black + Decker.
I personally have had two of their Ni-cad batteries go bad but was able to get them both replaced under warranty, though I had to pay for warranty shipping both times. I'm seeing a lot of B&D sales lately. Think vendors are trying to clear out the junk from the old company. Will be interesting to see if Stanley will honor the old companies warranties.

That merger was like 6 years ago! I'm sure the B&D vs. B+D is more of a marketing move.

NiCd batteries are prone to issues. I have several B&D yard tools that use these batteries, and while the batteries no longer hold a charge but for a couple hours (and then only having 20-50% the longevity of my generic Li-ion battery) I have yet to have an issue with the tools themselves. I'm passing on this as it's $10 overpriced, IMO, and I would want it to be 1/2 chuck (as I have too many 3/8" drills).

Yeah... wish this was the Matrix series in which you can swap out the head and use their 20V max batteries.
