Jobmate 14.4V rechargeable battery- great product

Date:November 23, 2014
"I have had very good experience with the Jobmate 14.4V rechargeable battery from Canadian Tire. I bought the Jobmate drill + battery in March 2003 and the original battery lasted over 10 years, with occasional home-use, until 2014, when it stopped taking a full charge, heating up the charger, and running the drill only for a minute. So I bought a 2nd battery in Jan. 2014, and it holds a charge very well, even after a month or two of idle time. I finally disposed of the original 2003 battery in November 2014. and last week I bought another battery as a spare for my Jan. 2014 battery. I only charge the battery if it runs down, or before I start a project. The Jobmate drill itself is Great, an excellent value, runs great after 11 years."

Batteries are the worst

Date:August 11, 2013
"I have 3 of these batteries and they are all dead ! The Job Mate batteries only last about 6 months and I am tired of having to buy new batteries for the Job Mate products. Don't waste your money or your time on Job Mate products with rechargeable batteries. Go with anything else. Now, I am stuck with 3 tools that take the Rechargeable batteries that are useless to me and I do not want to waste any more money on buying more batteries because they only last about 6 months tops. So I will probably end up throw away the 3 tools I have and have to go out and buy all new tools but I can Guarantee it will not be Job Mate !"

You get what you pay for

"The Jobmate rechargeable batteries are not top end products but they don't cost as much as top end products either. I have 3 tools which use these 14.4 volt batteries and keep one on the charger all the time. The trick with these batteries is to run them all the way down before recharging and using them regularly, so it's always a good idea to have a spare. Also, I use my Jobmate tools a couple of times a week and my batteries have lasted about 3 years so far. Any cordless tool will discharge if not used for long periods of time. For those who would use a cordless tool once in a blue moon I'd say buy a corded tool. For those who use a cordless tool to earn a living I'd say buy a higher quality tool. For some like me they are a good combination of price and value."

Poor battery performance

Date:October 6, 2007
"The 14.4v batteries soon failed to maintain a charge. Having bought a drill with one battery and a tool kit (drill, sander, jigsaw) with two batteries, it is very dissapointing to be faced with a choice of spending $30 for each of the three batteries or throwing away all four of these satisfactory tools. I can't justify the cost if I get such short service from the batteries.Any suggestions would be appreciated. P.S. We have to travel 80 km. to the nearest store, so it's not just a case of around the corner."
