Dewalt Batteries


Just wanted some extra eyes to make sure I'm reading this properly. I'm looking to get an 18v replacement battery for my Dewalt set. Lowes has it for $89 and Amazon has it for $47.99. It's quite a discrepancy in price.

I think Lowes is kind of high - although they have a 3 year warranty. I'd try the Amazon. I had a Craftsman rebuilt by these guys

You can purchase nearly anything online cheaper than your local retailer. Local retailer has much higher overhead, but you can purchase it and walk out with it. You can also return it easily and quickly. Online you wait for it, and if you need to return it, it will take some time + shipping. Take your choice. I use both sources depending on the product and situation. Ain't it great that we have a choice.

I'm willing to bet Amazon doesn't stock any inventory. they just places the order and its shipped directly from the factory so overhead cost are much lower. They probably also negotiated a low price because the sell in high volume.

Today in Lowes, I came across a DeWalt promo pack for $99 that had an 18V XRP battery AND a battery charger.
