On my second set of these "little babies" as I call them. On the first set I had the clutch go out between first and second gear on the drill. I use it quite a bit when drilling through "tank metal." Over all, I love them. Though, I have not seen a price of 120 or even close around these parts...179 here.

What kind of charging problems? Just not taking a charge or what? I was all excited about going from nicd to LiIon. Will i be disappointed?

I will say however, that I have never had an issue with the 10.8 Makita's...as far as charging goes. Like I said I have read that manufacturers have re-tooled the design in Li Ion to make them less susceptible to frigid temps.
I would not discourage you from going Li Ion by any means. You should be just fine.

if you leave these makitas in your truck overnight in 0*f temperatures do they still work in the morning?

I checked at two Home Depots near me, and they didt have them."If anybody can draw on the power, where do we put the meter?" - JP Morgan before pulling Tesla funding
