Do we really need all these cordless tools?

I would not have thought about a cordless circular saw but I got one in a kit with my cordless drill.  I carry it with me when I buy moulding.  The lumber yard I buy trim at only sells it in 16' lengths which is too long for me to carry home.  Usually there is someone to help load it and they will cut it to a shorter length for me.  A few times they were quite busy so I just selected my pieces, cut them to length with my cordless.  Not an everyday occurance but quite handy when needed.  

When I first got it I thought it might work to break down plywood sheets, but it doesn't have enough battery to do those cuts.  Both of my batteries are close to needing replacement.

I got one.   I wanted to do something  and my heavy  89-thousand pound Skill worm drive just felt too heavy.  So I ordered the milwaukee saw with an  extra battery and a charger.  That little sucker is fabulous.  It's unstoppable. I take it all sorts of places where otherwise I'd be running scads of power cord.

Have both battery powered and me powered tools.   Have a corded Recip. saw, and a cordless one.   Have a Megamouse sander, and a corded sander...Have a few cordless drills, not all of which need a battery, or cord.   Have two vintage, all metal circular saws, a cordless saw, and about 25 non-battery Cordless saws... Planer?  all of mine are cord and battery free...
