Apparently the X2 series battery powered drills come with a 'max HC' battery which is a NiMh type. The non-X2 drills come with a NiCd battery. The NiMh battery is generally considered to be a superior type. I got a 18v 3/8 inch drill for an Xmas present which comes with the NiCd. Past experience with NiCd batteries is that they will lose energy capacity over time and will need to be replaced within a couple years even with nominal usage. Question: Can I buy 'max HC' batteries when replacement time comes? and will the charger that came with my drill work for the 'max HC' battery? Also, what is the amp-hour rating difference between the max-HC and regular batteries? In the end it may be worth spending $50 more to get the 1/2" 18v drill just to get the better batteries.....???
