Like Andy said. The only battery powered tools I have are the remotes for my TV and air conditioning. I don't use power tools outside the shop, and can't justify the expense and hassle of battery powered tools. I pick up a tool, pull the trigger, and as long as it is plugged in it works, no batteries to charge, no batteries to buy. And the initial expense of corded tools is much lower. Both my sons have cordless tools, but they also both work on job sites where there is often no power, so battery tools are a must for them. For me, no cordless tools works just fine. I think I've got 4 drills, the oldest was bought in 1975/76, and still works. The others were all given to me, and all work. I may buy a cordless saw sometime in the future tho. The reason is, I believe I have found a source for free plywood, from sheets that were CNC routed, with large portions of the sheets not cut. I would have to load them myself, and anymore that is a real hassle doing something like the, hence the saw. I can cut the sheets apart and load the pieces easily enough. And the pieces will be big enough I can make a lot of my own stuff from them.
But, your money, you want cordless, go cordless.
