thats why I sold all my cordless tools and got corded versions of the circular saw – still have a codrless drill though (which doesnt hold a charge much).

rockwell does offer lifetime bettery replacement, if I’m not mistaken – Ridgid offers the same thing (better check though). otherwise – yeah, getting new batteries gets expensive.

I actually stopped at battery plus store for something else, and got to talk to the guy there about their powertool battery services, and he told me they do offer that, but I’m better off buying a new battery from the big box store…

I used to be a contractor so I was on construction sites all day long where cordless was the only way to go, but now that I’m woodworking in my garage – I like using corded tools more, and not have to worry about when I last charged my battery, or if I’m on vacation, or not in the garage… will they lose the charge and all… food for thought.
