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.
