A reader wrote in with a tip that Dewalt’s 20V Max 5Ah cordless power tool battery 2-pack is on sale right now.
Jim (thank you!) says:
Dewalt 2x 5AH batteries for $125 instead of $209
In my experience, $159 is the “typical” price, although some retailers tend to charge more.
Right now, the Amazon price is $130, which is a decent price. The price on the 2-pack was quite a bit lower at the start of December 2019, but only a few dollars less in November ($123).
When you need new batteries, you need new batteries.
Alternatively, there’s also a deal on a 5Ah battery starter kit, where you get (2) batteries, a charger, and a carrying bag for $133.62 via a 3rd party seller. So for just under $4 more, you get a charger and tool bag.
Dewalt 6.0Ah batteries are also on sale – right now you can get a (2) pack for $129. The same set is $169-$199 at other dealers.
