craftsman 19.2 lithium batteries

I have recently purchased lithium batteries for a 19.2 craftsman drill. When the drill is really doing some hard drilling, I find that the batteries quit as if too hot. After letting them set a while they go back to drilling. Is this a problem with the lithium batteries?

No, a problem with craftsman.

I've never noticed my Milwaukee lithium ion batteries even get warm.

Are you sure you're not overworking your drill? If you overwork the drill, the increased resistance at the motor will cause a battery will warm up. I suspect your drill maybe a lower-torque model and/or you're using too-large of a bit, a dull bit, tough wood, not letting the drill rest between hard runs, or pushing too hard.

sears 19.2 lithium batteries

Yes, I was really using the drill with an oversize bit and drilling some cough wood. But, I did not ever have a battery just quit totally quit. I put in another battery and started drilling again, but the same thing happened. I finally had to use a dicad battery to finish the job.

I never bother with the Li-Ion batteries, partly because Sears always has the Ni-Cad ones on sale for cheap and I'm thrifty, partially because after reading up on them, I don't see the point in spending the extra dough anyway.
I hate signatures.
