I agree. I am done with battery tools.
In my case, I already owned the corded versions, so I instead made the
investment (aka the opportunity to spend money on my shop) in three good
contractor grade extension cords.
I tried various reels but now just coil them.
It turns out that I don't miss the battery tools. Since I threw the
last collection of dead batteries away, I haven't yet needed to use a
power tool beyond the reach of a cord.
