Are generic replacement batteries for DeWalt cordless drills any good?

686 77 June 2, 2017 at 05:31 AM Get Amazon Coupons
Model # on battery is DCB207 (20V Max, 1.3Ah, 25 Wh, Type 1)

They have a 2-pack of the DCB205-2 batteries for $150.

They have generic batteries as cheap as $30: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01930QD7Q

Are they any good? Does anyone have any experience with these?

I'm not a "heavy" tool user, but I want the battery to last for a decent amount of time and not burn down my house.

P.S. I've also read some bad reviews about the DCB106 charger that came with my kit... I looked on Amazon and couldn't find the DCB106 charger... they have a DCB101 or a DCB115 for $69.

I would only buy genuine Dewalt especially for as cheap as you can get it on Ebay. How are you going to sleep knowing you have it in the house worrying about it. I have some new 2017 date code stuff pm me if you're interested.

You risk to start a fire...the knock off batteries are nothing more than chose garbage. Remember the hover boards fiasco

Genuine Dewalt batteries are dirt cheap on eBay or CL
