Some battery operated tools I like, especially the drills, drill drivers. Get the lithium. You’ll be glad you did. If I didn’t already have all the corded tools that typically make up these packages, I’d give it a good look. One thing to consider with any package is you are buying all of whateve that one brand is offering. This can work for you, if you have prior experience with the brand. For instance, I’d probably look at DeWalt or Bosch. That’s just me, though. It does limit your choices for individual tool selection. You may love the sawzall and hate the drill. For whatever reason. CPO reconditioned is an excellent idea. I have bought several reconditioned tools off amazon, well, more like the CPO amazon storefront. I see brand new packages a lot on CL. They make great gifts that the recipient may or may not want. Look on CL or ebay just after father’s day! Not far off.
