    I've got all the older big NIMH battery Dewalt tools. Those little lithium ion battery tools sure are compact and lighter.

    And last longer and charge faster.

    I bought a 12V set a while back, and they are handy and light.

    Just last week I ditched my 18v dewalt stuff for a set of ryobi 18v lithium. Not only are the batteries smaller and lighter but you get wayyyy more run time out of the lithium batteries.

    Those are good prices. Wish I had known. 3 weeks ago I upgraded to the 4-tool set, plus the light, 2 batteries. I think it was $100 less than the 9 tool kit listed in the first link.

    You can get an adapter to run the new 20v(really still just 18v) lithium batteries on the old 18v tools. I almost went that route but decided to move up to the Flexvolt and brushless stuff.

    I really don’t know. Are they that bad? I don’t suspect they’ll be taking the place of contractors tools, but say, for the avg guy, how do they stack up? I’ve only ever owned DeWalt drills, and that has only been 3. One of the old 18v, and now these 12v still and driver. All have been great. 18v still works but the batteries are shot.

    I was thinking of getting myself one (the first link posted) for Father’s Day.

    Dewalt is good stuff, as good as any other out there(everyone has their favorites, but all the top brands are make good tools). Those don't appear to be the top end of the lineup, but solid tools nonetheless.

    That said, I think what he meant was a man never has enough tools..you'll need something else next month.
