Since we are running with this topic despite the trolls, I’ll throw in my issue with the current trends in tools. Namely that the (mostly justified) rush to cordless leaves the tool buyer in a quandary. The battery is about half the purchase price of the tool, and so to avoid the costs of too many batteries and chargers, you get sucked in to the “brand ecosystem”. But as stated above, no one company makes the best of everything.

When all the tools plugged in, the Milwaukee holeshooter was compatible with the Bosch hammer drill. Thanks to the tyranny of convenience, some of my tools are perhaps not the first choice otherwise.

On the plus side, I think the cordless market is finally maturing as battery tech is able to pack stunning amounts of energy into small lightweight packages.
