Unfortunately with things like hand-held power tools, NiCd are
generally what they come with. I find it most disappointing that
otherwise not-bad engineering on even a $15 tool is made
redundant sooner rather than later by either poor-quality batteries
or charging. The variety of AA I have for a transistor radio, MP3
player, bike lights etc are rotated. None are left more than a couple
of weeks without being used, and they're lasting very well indeed.
Some are quite a few years old now and still give good power
