Are after market batteries worth the money


Anyone have any experience with these batteries. I have over 500 dollars worth of cordless tools and can not just throw them away. The Milwaukee batteries are too expensive for it to be worth the money. Please advise.http://www.amazon.com/ExpertPower%C2.../dp/B007BG15S2

Before I post I must say this: I am not affliated with the company I am going to mention in any way. I am just a repeat, happy customer with this company's products. That said: I use a company called "PrimeCell", I believe they are in Pennsylvania. I send them my 18vDC DeWalt and Milwaulkee power tools batteries and they rebuild them for $46 each (2 years ago), pricing has probably gone up some. My understanding is that most power tools batteries come with 1200uAmp cells in them. PrimeCell rebuilds your unit with 2400uAmp cells giving you more power and longer charge life. I can attest to that. I have picked up dead batteries from my local home supply store, with permission, and sent these off for rebuild so I have more batteries on hand as I also own quite a battery operated tools in my business.
