    Porter-Cable #8923 19.2V Slide Battery has been rated 5 starsTake it from an actual PC owner…

    These other reviews of PC stuff are completely bogus.

    I’ve had my 19.2v PC cordless drill/saw combo in continuous heavy use in the construction trade for over 3 years now. In that time I have replace numerous Black and Dicker made Dewalts, Hitachis, and other lesser known/no name brand cordless drills. So much so that in the end the steep up front cost of buying a PC product was by far and away much cheaper than the overall cost of having to replace cheaper made products (there is a reason it’s cheaper up front folks) from another maker on the job. The headaches you get from lost revenue due to down time aren’t worth it to go cheap.

    Take it from a professional who actually depends on his PC tools to earn a living, when you desperately want something that won’t go belly up at the moment you really, really need it [like when using a cordless drill as a bolt breaker or manual nail driver (aka hammer) or other stuff which it is not designed (and not officially recommended;)) to be used for] and when you get tired of hearing how great a product is from jobsite fanboys on their third installment of an (in their mind) better product, you’ll wisen up and spend the money on a pricey PC product. Trust me.

    Otherwise, who knows? You might eventually be left wandering the internet, lost. With enough free time to write multiple online reviews under assumed names whilst subconsciously trying to understand, in confused and angst derived bitterness, just why exactly the phrases “Made in America” and “outsourcing” apply to you.

    Porter-Cable #8923 19.2V Slide Battery has been rated 5 starsThis Is The One !!!!!!!

    If you want to get the most out of your Porter Cable 19.2v tools, THIS IS THE BATTERY FOR YOU !! This is an upgrade battery for many of the Porter Cable cordless tools using the 19.2v batteries. You should notice an improvement in run-time and maybe power. Overall performance with the 2.4 ampere hour rated battery has been noticeable to me and I will continue to pay the extra bucks for this replacement battery.(If I ever need another one.) If you have nothing better to do, take a look at my other reviews on 19.2v Porter Cable batteries and you will see why I feel so strongly in favor of this replacement battery.

    Porter-Cable #8923 19.2V Slide Battery has been rated 4 starsPricey… But the QUALITY IS WORTH IT!

    I am an avid woodworker/metalworker who demands much from my tools. I have owned Craftsman, Dewalt, Mikita, Milwaukee and Porter-Cable corded and cordless power tools and I must say my 3 year old Porter-Cable 19.2 Volt cordless drill can allways be counted on. Believe me I have put this baby thru some abuse; charging the batteries in the extremes of temperature both hot and cold, dropping the drill off roofs and running the motor for long periods of time. The drill and batteries still charge like the day they were new! On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate Porter-Cable a 9 only because of the added weight of using glass-reinforced plastics in both its batteries and drill houseings, which make the plastic all the more durable I might add though. The other companys drills quality wise on a 1 to 10 scale I would rate as follows…

    Dewalt – 7 Excelent battery run time but short life

    Milwaukee – 9 Excelent battery run time but cheesy plastic

    Mikita – 6 OK battery life but bad run-time

    Craftsman – 4 TERRIBLE battery LIFE, TERRIBLE RUN-TIME and plastic stabilizing gears in clutch on INDUSTRIAL Series Drills!!

    Porter-Cable #8923 19.2V Slide Battery has been rated 1 starsPoter-Cable 19.2v tools

    Even though the PC brand has always been very respected by me, as of late they have really been letting me down. I purchased 2 new batteries exactly 1 year ago and they are already junk, even under light use and complete cycling. The reciprocting saw fell apart, and the circular saw has no lasting power as compared to other brands.

    Even though I don’t want to, I will be replacing them with a different brand, maybe the new Millwaukee or the Ridgid line , as Ridgid offers free replacement batteries for the life of the tool, a definite plus.

    Porter-Cable #8923 19.2V Slide Battery has been rated 1 starsJunk Batteries

    I’ve had to replace my charger, and purchase two new batteries (8823 Model) (which lasted only 1 year of minor use). I am very disappointed in this product and Porter Cable will no longer receive my business. The batteries should at least be cheaper if they won’t last long. Never again…

    Porter Cable should be ashamed.
