A NON-negotiable point is that it must be electric.
A saw a low-priced 18-volt cordless rechargeable at the supermarket recently. However, there wasn't even any clear indication of the manufacturer's name (except, "Made In China.") And that supermarket seems to be an outlet for some rather dubious, "fell off the truck" items, plus a poor refund policy.
So I am interested in comments about reliable brands/models. Including the question of corded or -less. I don't absolutely need a rechargeable, but it would be nice. And, avoiding the purchase of a heavy power lead would offset the price. OTOH, I want something reliable. And I have heard of issues with drills, etc, where a new battery cost more than a new whole unit.
