I’ll chime in here with an experience of my own. I own a DEWALT 12 volt cordless drill that I bought sometime around 1995. After a little over 20 years of use, I had to buy a pair of replacement batteries from an on line source. Charged them up, and they were rarin’ to go. Because I had second home for awhile, I also bought a B & D 14 volt. (Please note that Dewalt is owned by B&D) That damned thing crapped out after about 1 1/2- 2 years of only occasional use. I have since been given a B&D 18 volt, but you have to charge it through the handle, not with a battery charger. Does ok, but runs out of juice at inconvenient times. The Dewalt is my “go-to” cordless drill, I can tell you. As long as I can still get batteries in another 20 years, I’m good to go with my Dewalt.
