All of my hand held power tools are corded, (3/8” & 1/2” drills, biscuit cutter, power planer, jig saws, circular saws, grinders, buffers, belt sanders, etc.). Except I do have a 18v 1/2” drill & a small 3.8v screw driver. I’ve already replaced four 18v batteries & ready to replace another 18v battery for not holding a charge. The old style battery is harder and harder to find & you don’t know how long it’s been sitting on the store shelf. That will be 5 batteries in 10 years, and my two corded drills are 20 years old, and not had to replace any cords yet. ANY BATTERY OPERATED POWER HAND TOOL, I consider a throw away or disposable tool. Because you have to replace the batteries every couple years, and when the brand updates or so-called improves the power tool, a different battery version is introduced, making your current tool obsolete. The only battery tool I’d buy is a 1/2” drill, for a expensive convenience. One of my friends has a slew of DeWalt battery power tools. He keeps 6 batteries charged. now all his DeWalt power tools are obsolete, since they changed to 20v.
