    ...only for specific high draw apps like a grinder, circular saw or if using your SDS for small cores.

    For that money I'd get two 4A or 5A batteries instead.

    Unless you really need the current draw or the increase in run time the 5ah are the best value option.

    It's to use with my 18v sds. For some reason I only managed 8x 6mm holes in concrete with my 4ah batteries!

    The Bosch warranty applies to batteries and chargers for 2 years, I'd retest my fully charged batteries and if they're still **** poor contact Bosch or your supplier before buying a new battery. You should be able to drill many more than 8 holes.

    I had pondered if anything over 18V means shorter gearbox life , depending on patience !

    ( but then ... stuff thats 2nd hand usually means pre-abused )
