Atomic oscillating tool + 5ah battery.

Not as good as $99 but better than full price.

Tool consistently sells for around $80, so about $50 for the battery add-on. No thanks.

A 5ah dewalt XR battery for $50 (at $10 per ah) seems like a pretty decent deal even if the base tool isnt XR(same size, same form factor, same weight, 2k less opm), I'd be surprised if the tools were really that different when opened up, save for some programmed limitation to have a slightly reduced oscillations. No variable speed though so there's that I guess.

How is that a deal if you're paying full market value?

I have had both. The xr has the 3 speed selector, and the blade changing lever is metal instead of plastic besides the 2k+ opm ... still think it is a good deal tho if you need one and are in the market.

Dewalt 5.0AH batteries seem to be about $70-75 on average deals either single or in 2 packs. Not sure what a "slickdeal" would be on a branded battery, but I'd by at $50.

If you're just buying the battery, just buy one of the third party brands. I've bought them for various brands and they work fine. Also, you can usually find this tool on Ebay for about $80 and sometimes less brand new.

Off brand batteries are a crapshoot. A buddy of mine tried off brand waitleys for m12 and 2 out 3 failed within 6 months. His 1 is still going for over a year tho. But even with the good 1 it clearly lacks the power compare to name brand. They are a very fair price tho but some ppl like me jus want that full power. Torque test channel on YouTube also proved that off brand battery on dewalt high torque impact significantly lacked power. Project farm proved runtime isnt as long but is comparable for the price you paid

There is a 5 year warranty on the DeWalt.compatible. Oscillating tools typically have a power adjustment setting and in most cases you wouldn't need to max out the power anyway. For example, if you're cutting or sanding wood, it's easier to burn if you have the power too high.

Lots of us would want to use this battery on more then jus an oscillating tool. That is the point of being in a battery ecosystem. Me personally i have cycled out all my old batteries with deals and selling stuff and i have nothing but batteries with 21700 cells. 4ah slim, 8ah, 10ah, and 12ah flexvolt. I use these tools for a living not jus diy use. I did not buy this as ive had the dewalt xr multitool for many years now. I was jus stating. Maybe the diyer thats not abusing tools everyday would have better luck

A person who uses these tools for a living would most likely use a smaller Ah battery on an oscillating tool. When I use mine, I usually use a 2.0 Ah so it's lighter. One of the main reasons for this is it will wear your arms out faster with a heavier battery because of the oscillating/vibrations that that these create.

The idea of battery ecosystem is more beneficial to the manufacturer than the customer. They make the batteries expensive and then expect you won't buy another brand because you would have to not only buy tools, but more batteries. Of course most of these 18V and 20V are interchangeable with an inexpensive adapter.
