I have mostly Bosch and Ridgid stuff for the house. Amazon.com runs specials on Bosch from time to time.

I'm slowly swapping everything to Ridgid because of their lifetime service agreement. Lifetime warranty and free replacement batteries...

If you need batteries for low draw rate applications such as handheld radios and are in a hurry try Lowes. I've bought a lot of them for comm radios and RC applications. They're in the outdoor lighting (solar) section.

does Depo handle the Ridgid warranty now? I dropped them years ago because they were way too hard to work with. Probably 1 out of 10 actually got warrantied, and I lost $$ on every one we did.

Thanks for the input guys! I was walking through Home Depot on Davis this morning looking at stuff for a bathroom remodel and in the clearance section they had an 18 v DeWalt drill, impact, 2 batteries and a charger for 109 plus tax. It is the NiCd but that is what I have already so it worked out perfect for me. I know it is heavier than others but fits my use great esp for the price. They had one more when I left. You have to find the clearance end cap. It was not in e tool section.

If you're over at the Foley Outlets, stop by Direct Tools. They have refurbished tools for killer deals. Refurbished doesn't even mean the tool was used, but could've been reboxed etc. They come with a 1 yr warranty as long as you keep the receipt.

Bought my Rigid tile saw there for $180 out the door. HD had it for $280.

**edit** see you found one.

green ryobi lithium 18 volt. home depot runs a sale couple times a year where you can get a impact and standard drill with 2 batteries for 99.00. also runs specials on a battery 4 pack for 99.00. we install window and doors in new construction in some capacity 5 days a week and have used this product for as long as its been available. we have no complaints. its light, holds charge and recharges quickly. we do bleed the batteries down from time to time to keep the memory from building up. for the money and the use we get out of them they are the best bang for the buck

Skint back, Li Ion cells don't form a memory like NiCads and NiMh do. Cyle total is what wears those batteries down.

Heres a great article from a good battery source I forgot to mention earlier..
