I have been very pleased with my Milwaukee 18v li-ion battery powered drill and impact driver tools.
So, then I bought a bare 18v circular saw, just to find out it requires the 3000AH XL battery.
Now I have to go buy a $100 battery to run this $200 saw. That’s insane.
I’ll have to agree with Bill on this one.

You need a corded circular saw for work in the shop.

If I was out contracting and working on job sites all day then maybe I could justify a battery saw.
