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…

Certainly true for some… but battery packs for my Makita drills can be had for about $20 a piece new, and thanks to increases in battery technology over the years, they are roughly twice the capacity of the originals and will last several years of normal use. As an extra bonus, the tools and chargers can be found on CL for a fraction of their original cost. I picked up a Makita set a few months ago that had the carrying case, drill, two flashlights, three battery packs (two used and one new) and two chargers for $30 and 15 minutes drive time.
