On milwaukee electric's website, they are advertising "the next revolution
in power tools". However, there is no link for further reading. Anyone
know what's up? From the animation, maybe hydrogen power cells?
Not quite. 28 volt lithium ion. Should be some major changes, but the battery
cost is going up, I'll bet.

that which is expected." George W. Bush
Adam Osborne put himself out of business by pre-announcing a computer
several months before it was actually available for sale. He got people
excited enough about the new model, sales of the existing model fell
through the floor.
Click on the "Cordless Tools Myth: More power means more weight" link. Looks
like they're coming out with a 28V line of cordless tools.
My guess is they're utilizing the latest in battery technology.
Dunno if the state of the art runs to either fuel cells or microturbines at
that voltage. The amps are there for light-drain applications like cell phone
and laptop batteries but the cost-per-unit is still prohibitive.
