I was in a similar boat to you.

I used to be an low-voltage contractor and used my cordless tools daily. with a constant charge-discharge the batteries would last for years and years. after I stopped working and the batteries just stood there, they all died out – completely (can’t take a charge).

Seeing that I will only have the occasional use for these tools, I sold them all (bare tools) and am just using corded versions (or in my case, manual hand drills for now) that won’t run out of batteries as I do not need the cordless functionality anymore. one thins less to worry about.

If you do want to go cordless, make sure you are getting Li-Ion battery tools. these batteries would have longer life and should maintain their charge even when not used for longer periods of time
