some months ago I used a big project to purchase a couple of pricey tools one was a milwaukee 18 volt circular saw. The weight took some getting used to as I was used to the old school heavy grade worm drive skillsaw. SO I've been using the thing. I gotta say I am really impressed. The prior experience I've had with cordless has all been bad. No power what power there is is fleeting and the batteries run down. They were awful so I didn't buy any. But I'd been reading lately that things have really improved. So I got one. Just one. The saw and two batteries ( two because I still didn't have faith that they had any staying power) and the charger. Well I ended up never using that second battery but one time. The thing is rugged and powerful. One time I ran the battery down on a single job. I was cutting 6" wide dados in several 6 x 6 in beams to use as interlocking joinery. I sliced hundreds of cuts and then used a chisel to make the dadoes. Other than that one time I've never run a battery down. I never noticed any flagging of power in the tool. So now I guess I'm sold on cordless. So I just got a milwaukee half inch drill / driver. And playing with that a little I am very happy with the tool's capability and power.
