I got a good deal on some cordless tools!
Battery technology has come so far that there is no longer any reason why you need your tool attached to the wall by a cord.
I needed a reciprocating saw for some work I'm doing in the basement and I went to Home Depot and found a great deal. Ryobi has the "plus one" system where all their tools use the same 18 volt rechargeable battery. My wife and I have been needing a chain saw around the house and Ryobi had the 10" cordless plus one that is perfect. I got "the works" tool system that comes with two 18v batteries, a 1-hour charger, the reciprocating saw, the chain saw, a circular saw, a jig saw, a driver/drill, a wet/dry vacuum, a flashight, all the blades and bits plus a rolling carry case for $230. Now that's a deal!
They have other tools in the series like an impact driver and trimmer. You pay less for the tool because you don't have to buy another battery and charger!
I'm quite happy, we've already gotten a lot of use out of the chain saw and reciprocating saw and flashlight. They perform really well!
