Well, I have both corded and cordless drills; plus a wide variety of
extension cords both coiled and reeled.  Still, when I need to drill just a
few holes in the backyard, or up on a ladder somewhere, I reach for the
cordless drill.

Yeah, batteries don't last forever, but to me, $20-$30/year is a reasonable
price to pay for not having to drag a cord up the ladder, or through the
attic, or around the swimming pool.

And best I can remember, my current pair of battery packs is over 4 years
old and still working well enough to meet my needs.  When I bought them, the
two packs were significantly less expensive than a new tool with the same
features and only one battery.
