so now i have 2 sets of cordless drills and flashlights with 2 chargers and 4 dead batteries yes i know to periodically recharge them, especially if not used to prevent from dying but who the heck remembers? i don't use them every day only when needed and i'm actually pretty good with charging them every couple or so months but they still die. the new batteries are usually either discontinued or ~$70 each so you may as well buy new drill instead wasting money on battery. as convenient as those cordless things are i'm ready to just chuck them away and get a good corded one so i don't have to worry about it.
what do you guys do? use the cordless, corded? which brands/models do you guys recommend/are happy with?
