Rmiell - hi, I looked in the Tools forum and didn't see your post in there. I took the liberty of copying your post and putting it there, since those batteries are for cordless power tools. I indicated you posted to this forum and used you as the source of the information. I'm sure the people who peruse that forum will appreciate the information you provided. Regards!
