I started with a Ryobi stapler, as I had to do a ceiling with cello tiles, and didn’t want to drag the compressor into the house. I liked it so well that I went and bought the 18 g. brad nailer, and later the 23 g. pin nailer.

I admit they are heavier and bulkier than pneumatic, but for me the trade off is worth it. When a battery runs down (shoots a lot of nails to get there) I always have another charged up. And I don’t have to wait for the compressor to cycle like I used to. So far performance has been very adequate. I rarely fire up the compressor any more.
