Pros and cons both ways.

For pneumatic, they cost quite a bit less since you already have a compressor and are physically smaller to get the head into tighter areas.

Battery powered, however, are much more portable, especially for quick jobs. They are heavier and bulkier, but you don’t have to deal with being tethered by the hose. Plus, you don’t have to deal with the noisy pancake compressor.

I don’t use power nailers that often, so am perfectly fine with pneumatic (plus, my compressor is much smaller and quieter than a pancake). If I was using them quite a bit, however, I would go battery powered.
