    Re: Is it time to just accept the hype?

    It sounded like you were comparing the 24v battery to the makita 18v li-ion. The 24v one will have more cells, thats what I meant.

      OK, sorry for the confusion. Did you read the link?
      What do you think, sounds like the type of cell maybe the issue.

        The Popular Woodworking article was comparing compact 18v li-ion 1.5ah and the Ryobi 18v 3ah. That is the only reason the Ryobi drilled more holes. And in a small side box they talked about the Dewalt 18v nano battery and it got considerable more wholes drilled. But because it was a hammer drill it was not in the main comparisons. Cabinet makers don't like holding hammer drills up to drill pilot holes.

          The focus of the article was on 18 volt lithium drills that weighed less than the 14.4 volt NiCd drills.

          In the comparison there were two (2) drills with 2.4 ah batteries. The Dewalt and the Ryobi. The rest of the drills were 1.5 ah or less. Of the two 2.4 ah drills present (DeWalt and Ryobi), Ryobi drilled more holes and drove more lag bolts.

          If the Ryobi 2.4 ah battery will out last the DeWalt "Nano" battery. How will the 2.4 ah DeWalt stack up against 3.0 ah lithium drills from other makers?
