: I think they should develop a battery powered tool, say a drill, and
: build the charger right in the handle. All you have to do is run a cord
: and plug it in and it will charge whilst (drat, that word again) using
: the tool. The cord wouldn't be too much of a problem, I don't think.
: After use, you could wrap it conveniently around the tool before
: storing it in its case. You'd never have to worry about running out of
: battery power, because it would always be plugged in.
And in case you're drilling farther away from an electrical outlet
that the cord is long, they could also sell a modular unit that
would extend the range -- something like another cord, with a
regular plug on one end, but a female plug on the other. Maybe
even make a few, in different lengths.
I bet this would catch on with the right advertising.
