    I have trouble getting the battery off my circ saw. I use the batteries on my drills and recip saw and they slide off smooth as butter. It isn’t one battery either all 4 are hard to get off the circ saw. Anybody else experience anything similar? Any suggestions?

    I have two sets of the 12v drill and impact kit…one set is difficult to pull the battery out, the other is easy. It’s not the batteries themselves as I can swap the 4 batteries between the 4 tools and only get sticky batteries in one tool kit.

    Sorry I can’t help. Have several 12 volt and 1 18 volt and have not had any problems. Havn;t got my saw yet, so have not had an oppertunity to try it

    I find that it’s a little bit more difficult to get the battery off my Bosch 18V saw compared to my drill but not significantly. I wonder if maybe the plastic on the saw is misformed a bit where the battery docks in?

    Sorry I can’t help you with the 18v Saw but I can attest to it being super difficult to get my 12v out of the jacket/usb holster without loosening the screws on it originally.

    No issues here. All mine are firm but not hard 🙂

    I don’t have any problems removing the battery either. It is a little awkward because you are pushing in on the release tab and pulling out on the battery….

    I get that sometimes with batteries sticking , I just tap the bottom of it on something solid and then it usually pops off no problem .

    I have the 18v saw as well and no issues on mine. A few of my drills the batteries are a little bit looser on but do not effect performance. But being really hard to take off would be annoying, though I wonder if it is the plastic as well

    Can you file down some off the plastic to ease the battery off and on to help with removal .

    Always willing to learn .

    That was I was thinking. Just checking for a better answer

    Is the push button lock move freely, if it has a tendency of sticking it could be that, if it works, then maybe the frame of the saw might have a little bur or sharp edge like some other members have mentioned.
    Good luck, let us know if you figure that out.

    I had one battery in an 18V tool that did as you described, got jammed in there some how. It took me like a half hour to get it out. I used a few taps from a hammer on the sides to get the locks to break free. Since then no problems.

    The battery slides off very easy from both my 18v drill and my 18v saw.

    However I do feel like it protrudes 1mm on both of them, I feel like it should click a little further.

    mine has no problem, fatpack battery slides off easily.

    I tried again today. The battery really is loose 1mm. I’ll make a video tomorrow 🙂

    1mm is really a lot though, you might send it back for a replacement
