    Hi all. Any of you guys got these batteries and are they worth the money?

    ...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.

    no complaints for me using 1 6.0 lasts a bit longer than the 5.0 but nothing much

    So I'm probably better off getting 2x 5ah batteries then?

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

    Not as yet mate. I leant my drills to the brother in law this weekend so I'll be trying what you mentioned tomorrow hopefully.

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

    Out of interest. Do any of you guys have/use a 36v sds?

    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 )

    id sitck to 5ah batts, heard alot of 6ah are not as good on output wise as the 5ah versions so dont make a huge difference.
