    Plus $80 battery plus charger. For that money you can buy better

      Which is why i am downvoting this deal

      • +11 votes

        Doesn't really rectify the downvote, this is still a bargain, especially if someone has the battery and charger already.

        •  

          Agree that its a deal for someone, but Black and Decker is probably one of the lowest selling brands in Australia, hardly anyone carries them, they are not fit for regular use according to most people here, and the bateries and chargers are so overpriced that its not worth picking up on its own, and there are numerous other brands that make quality tools for less money with decent support. The profile of the person who this is a deal for is actually quite infinitesimal, and I think its a fair call that most people should think twice before jumping on this deal and hopefully the downvote promotes that thought

    Check the price of the battery and charger…is it a bargain

    Black & Decker Cordless Reciprocating Saw Bare Unit - 18V Li-Ion is $22 as well.

      We have the Stanley FatMax version of this (not sure how good the B&D one is…but only $22, so if you already have the batteries, then why not)!

      These types of saw are fantastic for pruning in the garden.

    I wonder what the chances of Bunnings price-matching their Ryobi is?

      Unfortunately, I doubt that they would.

      I’m not sure if Ozito make a circular saw skin, but Bunnings normally only match Aldi et al tools with their Ozito line.

      Supercheapauto also sell Rockwell tools, and they’ve been quite reasonably discounted in the past, and even then my understanding is that Bunnings didn’t price match with their Ozito gear.

      I’d be happy to be proven wrong of course, but I think I’m probably the bearer of bad news.

      Slim. They can only really alter the price of their Ozito PXC gear and I doubt they'll do that as I'm pretty sure SuperCheap are clearing these out ie. they're not just 'on sale'.

    Can any other brand batteries fit? Or buy an adaptor fro your current line you own

    •  

      I have heard that adapters exist. Not sure if I'd want to buy into the full B&D ecosystem, a cheapo skin would be ok tho!

    •  

      If you were crafty you could 3d print and adaptor to use other brands batteries

      • +1 vote

        Don't see how. There are metal contacts on the battery and skin that need to touch. You'd have to connect those too. And a dodgy job is certainly risky

        • +1 vote

          Yeah you'd need to do something about the contacts. But there are only two terminals to connect so it's straightforward once you get past the whole 3d print part

    These tools are not brilliant, from what I've seen they are some of the worst ever, so worth looking at other options with warranty and better support. I was looking at them as I have an old trimmer that needs a new battery.

    Anyhow, B&D Lithium batteries only fit B&D and some Stanley tools.

    This is what I found:

    $16 Charger: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/323640065759
    400mA is slow but it helps your batteries last longer than a $39 2000mA fast charger https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/223242748373

    $32 2.0AH battery

    $50 3.0AH battery

      Don't all the brands design their batteries to only fit their range of tools?

      •  

        Stanley Black & Decker seems to have gone to some length to make sure the batteries aren't compatible between lines. Basically they share the same slot width and style, but they stick little tabs here and seemingly to prevent cross compatibility. It's obvious that some design is shared between lines.

        They may justify this by arguing that a certain battery spec is required for certain tools.

        •  

          I could be wrong, but I thought that DeWalt (same parent company as Stanley and B&D) also do the same thing for certain lines of tools, along with Makita, Ryobi, etc? No?

        •  

          Yeah, I believe filing away the tabs is the go for dewalt compatability.

    •  

      Bought skins, now to batteries, how do you check compatibility? I don't see they are compatible: i.e.

      The battery that these skins need:
      https://www.blackanddecker.com.au/en-au/products/accessories...

      BL2018 or BL4018 and they are not in the list on ebay page.. same for charger..

    •  

      I contacted seller of the $32 2.0AH battery to confirm compatibility and got reply that the battery is not good for these skins because it does NOT have same voltage. Which replacement battery is good for these B&D 18V tools?

      • +1 vote

        18v and 20v are basically same. Normal battery has +2V when fully charged and sags down to -2v from nominal voltage. So can't see any issue there.

  •  

    Could use 4ah makira battery on this skin as a have charger and battery for makita?

    •  

      Unfortunately Makita is not compatible as well. I have B&D line trimmer( 1x2ah battery) and Makita Driver (with 2x2ah batteries).
      Contact locations are different.

    •  

      Nope, you can't. The batteries have different contacts,etc.

    •  

      You may find somebody produces battery adaptors between the brands. Not sure. I know they exist for B&D <-> Stanley FatMax <-> DeWalt. I'd imagine it would make your tool bigger.

  • +1 vote

    Got this one. Its pretty weak. Barely cuts anything more than ply and tends to stall unless battery is fully charged.

    •  

      Yeah…I expect that's the case. I have the FatMax saw, and it doesn't do so well either.

      Mind you, a good blade can make a difference sometimes - those that ship with the tool are often cheap and nasty.

      •  

        Yup this. Get a Diablo blade. Even on a crappy saw it will transform your cutting speeds/experience.

  •  

    I wonder if Supercheap has decided that B&D was one too many 18v platforms to be carrying when they also have various Stanley, Toolpro, Worx and Rockwell cordless tools.

  • +2 votes

    Is this because they've given up trying to flog that $150 kit (too many stock differences here and there) and these are the odd leftovers?
    It's a B&D clear out …

      Why? The deal says

      Bare unit

      Note that they do not come with a battery.

      And the Supercheap page also says

      Battery and charger not included

      •  

        yea but i was hurry and most boss was looking me didn't had much time to read all the stuff

        But i am confuse why will i have buy something so expensive $129 which doesn't work without spending another $100

        •  

          But i am confuse why will i have buy something so expensive $129 which doesn't work without spending another $100

          Because you might have another black and decker tool with a battery and charger so you don't need a battery.

          If it came with a battery it would cost $229 and you would be paying an extra $100 for something you don't need.

  •  

    Bought a recipro saw. Click and collect from broadmeadows (out of stock everywhere else). Circular saw appears to be out of stock everywhere.

    I tried to get Bunnings to price match it with their Ozito gear. As expected, no luck though.

    I've hacked my Stanley batteries to work with B&D. It also works with the alleged 20V Porter-Cable.

    •  

      Do your Stanley batteries have 20V voltage? Is it ok to use 20V battery with 18V tools? Thanks.

      • +1 vote

        Nope my batteries are 18v fatmax. Work just fine with the 20v porter tools. It's a marketing gimmick to differentiate between products. Dewalt, Stanley, Porter, BD all owned by the same company.

      •  

        Pretty sure all those batteries are technically both 18/20v. It's the difference between the 'peak' and 'nominal' voltage.
        In other words, just a marketing gimmick.

        •  

          more like some have 3.6V (18V), and others 3.7V cells in serial, inside (18.5V), eg 5S.

          The marketers are highly paid, so they probably just round the 0.5v up to 2V and call it a job well done

  •  

    Anyone has a luck with ebay batteries or charger ? stuck with this purchase and dont want to spend $100 for batteries/charger for this item.
