I've got an old, old dewalt cordless drill that I've been hanging on to that the batteries are shot on. Did see a replacement battery at the local Ace Hardware on clearance, but they were still wanting $32. Would consider it, but the battery packaging looked as old as the drill I have, so not sure it would last long. Perhaps if they knock off 50% I might bite.
I've been having good luck with my Hitachis too, I bought them as refurbs and they've been holding up as well as the dewalts.
