CXS drill
« on: September 03, 2022, 03:49 PM »
I have one of the first CXS drill drivers. Have had it for years and is my goto for most all drilling and screw-driving. The batteries are showing their age. Went to look for new ones and could not find the style it takes. My question is  do the ones without the leg that are shown in the info, fit my old drill. I hope so as I am not looking forward ti getting a new one. Thanks in advance.

Yes the no-leg batteries are the ones to get. They have a higher amp rating than the original legged versions. They’re a big improvement over the original.

I swapped batteries on my old CXS. Works great. Only issue is that the drill with the new batteries didn’t fit in the Systainer. So, I just remove the battery when I store the drill.
