I have had good luck with Ryobi’s 18v lithium batteries (the big ones, not the thin ones). Not so good with the Nicads. But I think any circular saw, regardless of brand, sucks batteries down pretty fast, compared to drills and drivers. It’s my Makita batteries, both Nicads and NIMH, that have given up the ghost. I don’t even try to charge them anymore.
