I just spotted Lithium Ion powered Cordlesss drills at Lowes and Home Depot in the last couple days. They have been out for a while but only in the big combo kits, now they are in the single drill sales. They are SO COOL!! An entire 18 Volt drill and battery weighs about the same as my old 12 Volt cordless. No memory effect. Much more power that lasts longer. SWEET!! Lowes has a 18 Volt Hitachi that comes with a free MP3 player for $190. Home Depot has an 18 Volt Makita for $199. Check them out next time you're at the store.
