All I did originally was suggest that relying solely on the reviews being accurate as to whether these are a reliable battery may not be the best idea. I never attacked anyone personally and yet I’ve been both personally attacked and met with condescension and smug replies from someone that hasn’t even used the product and is looking for a fight I won’t entertain.If you have used the product that’s fantastic and I’m glad to hear it’s been reliable for you, I’m glad those people are now responding on the post to add some legitimate experience.The irony is the person complaining about the quality of discussions on the site is the exact person bringing it down here along with the OP who instantly went on the warpath because he didn’t like someone having any kind of opinion urging caution.I don’t post in a thread to troll, I’m trying to encourage critical thinking and not simply taking as fact a few opinions of faceless keyboard warriors. I don’t care if anyone agrees with my opinion that not all these batteries are created equal and that you certainly can’t directly compare two different products unless you are sure as that they have come out of the same factory. It’s up to individuals to make their own informed decisions as I’ve stated all along. But that has been missed in the petty tit for tat I’ve been trying to avoid engaging in. I’d rather the mods came in and completely deleted all the posts from anyone that hasn’t used this specific product, everything else is largely irrelevant.




    Incredible that you can post such a lengthy post and STILL no mention of what compatibles you claim to have used in the past. What are you afraid of?

    I know they aren't this brand but I have been using Exmate compatibles in my various Worx garden/power tools for the last 3 Summers and not one of the 4 I have has missed a beat. Cost 33 quid each for 5AH. from Amazon so the people who scaremonger regarding non-original batteries are not correct in my experience (which is very important IMO).

    Genuine Worx batteries have the same length of warranty, 12 months.

    I find reviews a bit hard to take on face value as usually it’s people commenting after using the batteries once or twice and not after prolonged use where you would really see how degradation sets in

    This is a problem on here at the moment, people giving feedback (good or bad) on a product that they have no experience of. It's wrong imo and I will call it out when I see it happening. If you are giving advice on here (either buy or don't buy), you really do need to have experience of the actual product or the advice given is simply not valid.

    For clarification I haven't recommended this particular product because I have no experience of it but my point was in reply to posters who were suggesting all non original brand batteries are no good. I have decent experience of just such a product so posted my views based on that. And they didn't appear to like it too much (edited)

    I have two of these exact batteries currently 3months old still hold the same charge use my worx battery lawn mower/strimmer, lights and vac daily/weekly. I'd say more like 3.6-3.8ah compared to a legit worx 2ah battery based on my experience with it. 100% worth the price in my eyes.

    I haven't had this exact brand but bought a Shentec Worx compatible battery. Claimed to be 5ah but didn't last as long as my genuine Worx 4ah batteries.


    For those interested in battery compatibility with Worx see below from my own experience:

    Guild - batteries have worked without issue on Worx tools and charger.

    Ferrex (old 18v version) - worked with most Worx tools. Did not work when tried in a cordless mower. Worx battery worked on Ferrex tool.

    Wesco - Worx batteries have worked on Wesco tool without issue.

    Wickes (New 1ForAll version) - Batteries worked with most Worx tools. Must use same branded charger.

    JCB (old 20V version) - Worked with all Worx tools but battery didn't slide fully onto one of my tools (plunge saw) the JCB battery is a bit bulkier. Battery casing could probably be sanded down to fit. Worked fine with Worx charger.

    I've also Kress 20V tools, these have the American 5 pin Worx fitment. I have 2 adapters so I'm able to use either Worx or Kress batteries with each tool.

    Other brands which I believe have the same fitment as Worx but I haven't tested compatibility:

    Erbauer 18V (old non EXT version)

    Titan 18V

    Bauker 18V - Toolstation own brand but also sold under Positec (who own Worx) eBay account.

    Mac Allister - Not certain but looks to be the same as Wesco/Ferrex batteries.

    Blue Ridge (on Amazon) - Not certain but looks to be the same as Wesco/Ferrex batteries. Sold by Positec (who owns Worx) on Amazon.

    To be honest, in nowadays situation with batteries I suspect even the original brands are finding alternatives. As such, you are correct to be weary of none oem brands getting whatever they can get their hands on and call it a product.

    Personally I'd just stick with oem and suck it up, saves the grief of any issues. I'm not a professional so I can afford nice tools to make up for my bodgery.

Everyone is free to weigh that up along with the other opinions expressed here in order to form a balanced view.Fwiw I believe bellboys when he says he has had a great experience of them but this does not mean everyone will have the same.

    No, I'm genuinely interested in the bombshell you've just dropped that you HAVE used compatibles before and obviously didn't rate them so would humbly request you share the name of them so as to inform readers as to why they should be avoided. It's basically what this site is all about.

    To add to this debate, I have fee bosch pro batteries, few cheap bosch pro copies, many worx batteries, few worx copies and few bauker batteries, all batteries works fine, after 4 years only one bosch pro battery died on me, no big deal, but cheap still working, they lost capacity a bit but still going, bauker batteries never last as much as worx with same capacity, but cheap worx copies 4Ah last much longer as worx 2Ah, and for 1/3 of price why not to use them they are great value, I am not tools snob or crazy bargain hunter but cheap batteries so far not let me down, I could be just lucky, or unlucky with one bosch pro battery...

    I think the Chinese owned thing isn't that big a deal. Most goods are manufactured in China now, even the big brands.

    I've had a very different experience. I own quite a selection of tools from Positec.
    2 X brushless drills, brushless SDS drill, brushless impact driver, brushless impact wrench, plunge saw, brushless angle grinder, detail sander, Jigsaw/recip saw, batteries from 2-6ah. I also had the brushed angle grinder for a few years before the brushless one came out.
    Most of these tools have been well used around the farm and I've had just one issue. My first drill developed a fault where it would go in the wrong direction maybes once in every 15 times. I contacted the customer service and returned the drill for repair. To be fair I didn't hear anything so chased them up after 3-4 weeks, they sent out a brand new drill as a replacement.

    In regards to battery powered garden tools, they're never going to be upto their mains of petrol counterparts. I think a lot of people have unreal expectations for them. They really are only for small gardens/very regular mowing. I know people that have them although I've never used the gardening stuff myself.

    As you'll not from the above I've bought their more premium products and been really happy with them. My first cordless drill has been used with much bigger bits than she should have when in a pinch but she keeps on going.

    In regards to trust pilot reviews you'll see Worx score considerably higher than big brand counterparts including DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee and Bosch.

    I don't think Positec (Worx) equipment is a danger to anyone but would agree to be cautious on the 3rd party batteries.

    I've had the 4.0ah and 3.0ah ones of these and they are great. Work in the correct Erbauer, Worx, Ferrex, Bauker and other brands with the same batteries.
    Good batteries, but this deal isn't quite as good per unit as this one
    ebay.co.uk/itm…936
    2 for £39.99
    However if you only want one.

    One day I will get around to doing a long blog about all the battery crap I now know about these types of batteries.
