    No, amps would be fuel flow. Amp-hours is capacity.

    Hi all

    Just been doing a bit of research on replacement batteries and those from the branded makes are expensive. However i found these on ebay, they appear to be copied versions. Has anyone used these and if so are they any good? £23 for 14.4v battery at 3.0 Amps seems a great deal.

    I may just go ahead and purchase it, as there isnt any negative feedback on them considering they have sold a lot. £23 isnt risking too much money, just hope it doesnt destroy my drill driver lol

    Workmate won't have a word said against dewalt - even when he's constantly let down by the kit.
    Batteries?
    Goes through them for fun - especially the ebay bargains.

    Buy cheap, buy twice.

    I'll stick to Makita and Milwaukee thank you.

    Just an update lads...and lasses

    ....i received the 14.4v 3amp cheap version of battery of ebay today, charged it for an hour, put it in dewalt drill and drill exploded

    .....nah just kidding, but seriously, got the battery today, used it in drill driver to put up a few fence panels and i am very surprised at how powerful it is! I dont recall the originals ever generating this much power! but this is only the first day, so will have to see how it performs over the next few days and weeks.

    I shall post update in a few weeks time to let you know how the "cheaper" batteries perform.
