Sad story, 21 May 2013
First - not the fault of Black & Decker or Amazon - delivery arrived when I was out of earshot of doorbell. Driver lobbed the box over a 6ft gate to land on concrete. He had several alternative options had he used common sense. Never mind, I thought, Amazon packing is good and the battery should be well protected. Wrong. Box was stuffed with the usual brown paper, none of which surrounded the battery which was lying unprotected in a corner. (Later discovered a crack in the casing on the underside of the item but by then I had already used it briefly as a test.) The item ordered was stated to be 1.3Ah capacity. My original was 1.7Ah. A purchaser in 2011 complained that capacity had fallen from 1.7 to 1.5Ah. It now appears to have been reduced again. EXCEPT that the battery itself is marked as 1.2Ah -- not as described on Amazon. And to heap on the insults, the bubble container states capacity of 1.5Ah!!
This is infuriating. Black & Decker should be ashamed and Amazon should get their facts right. Won't bother to return the battery. Voting with my feet.
