I all most caved to the tool gods last night.
I saw one of these at the Home Depot and had a tough time leaving with out it. Thank god the wallet was empty going in.
If it had said Makita on the side of it I would have pulled out the plastic and brought it home.
I still my go back and get it but that would make 3 different batteries and up until last month I was doing a good job at just having just one kind so all my tools used the same battery.
Last month I slipped and got this. I was at faire and needed a drill/driver the one I had with me was dead and I had no charger. So I'm stuck and had to go get one.The tag on the shelf said $149 I'm thinking wow that's an expansive lesson, to make sure that there is always a charger in the truck. But I needed it right now so I get it.The guy at the register rings it up and it's only 79 bucks. I paid the man and ran. Because after all the register is never wrong. I looked today up here and it's on the shelf for $139 so I am guessing that True value had a sale on them last month.
