I've bought several "low quality" brand cordless drills (black and decker, ryobi, etc) from 12v to 18v and none of them have lasted. I don't even hardly use them, jsut around the house, drilling wood, hanging pictures, etc. Very light use. The batteries only last a few months then to buy another is like ~$50. I even follow the correct procedure of letting them cool off before and after charging, draining completely(as much as possible), etc. I won't ever buy another cordless unless it's a very good one, as the rest are a waste of money.

I will say that after wasting all that money and being fed up I decided I don't need a good cordless for my use and wasn't going to spend the money on one. So I went to harbor freight and for ~$50 I got an 18v cheap cordless drill, 2 batteries, and a charger. I've had it two years and it works great for light duty/household use. I bought it figuring if the batteries don't last, a new one is only $10, not $50, and they have actually lasted. Go figure...

I use a cord whenever I can.
