I have two drills, a saw, a sander and a jig saw that all use the B&D Firestorm 12V system. Four batteries and two chargers have gone south. They are all now worthless. At $200.00 to $250.00 to get rebuilt/repaired, I'm on the fence as to whether I should junk them or get the job done. There is something very wasteful about this business of forced buying of new items when the batteries go bad. Vance Packard, where are you when we need you the most?
