Lithium Ion Cordless Tool Batteries
Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries are now the primary power source for newer tools. Here are some benefits of using Li-Ion.
- Li-Ion is noticeably lighter in weight and more compact in size. Less weight means less fatigue, especially for those hand-above-the-shoulder jobs.
- Faster Charging. Li-Ion batteries can handle roughly 800-1000 charges and do not need to be discharged before recharge. They can be charged quicker and will hold their charge longer while not in use.
- Li-Ion batteries are more efficient than other chemistries and provide more power, and torque in the same tool.
- A Green solution. Li-Ion batteries contain no toxic chemicals and are fully recyclable.
- If you switch to Li-Ion, be sure your charger is compatible before charging.
We are an industry leader for cordless tool battery recycling. Each of our store locations is a drop-off point for battery recycling. Learn more about our recycling programs for consumers and businesses.

Tips to Extend the Life of Your Skil Cordless Tool Battery
- When using cordless tool batteries, it pays to plan ahead.
- Keep your battery properly charged and you can expect a long life.
- Most short runtime issues occur due to battery neglect, not failure.
- If you use your Skil tool infrequently, be sure to charge the battery when you feel a slight decrease in power.
- Draining the battery down to the point where it no longer runs can damage the battery. Periodically charge the battery overnight to achieve optimum runtime and lifespan.
- If you use your Skil tool on a regular basis, we would also recommend a second battery to keep your project moving while you are charging the first one.
