Are the DeWalt kits (drill and combo) batteries Ni-Cad or Li-Ion? I thought Li-Ion was preferred?
Li-Ion is preferred. Dewalt stuff is NiCad, some of the other bundles were Li-Ion.

the Li-ion are better but suck badly when its cold out, mine would barely work last winter when it was 10 degrees out for like 2 months. Ni-cad work much better when its really cold.

...too bad I didn't "need" anything...



This was the Oswego and Bolingbrook store.

Did anyone else's 4 pc. combo come with a free Impact driver? The one I saw had that included, makes me think I should return and pick it up...

What stores had the free impact driver with the 4pc kit? Did any of them have the drill impact kits in-stock, all i need is the impact drill combo my current set is shot.

Sorry if this is a dumb question... but are you saying Dewalt is all NiCad or just these sets are Nicad? Is that a reason to stay away from these tools are are they still considered very good? Thanks again.

I stuck the 4 pc dewalt set up on craigslist for $340. I think they should sell for that.

Alll the DeWalts on sale are NiCads. That said, NiCads are not necessarily bad or evil if you charge them as discharge them properly. They certainly don't explode in your pocket like LiON/POs do. They also are very good at discharging at a fast rate, which is great for high torque tools. Yes LiON is the new cool buzz word with cordless tools. If there is a big price premium for LiON over NiCads, I personally would choose the NiCads over the LiONs. LiONs don't have memory effect (or as easily as NiCads), but I find they don't last as long as NiCads properly maintain.

I had to run an errand and well... I stopped by the HD on North Ave. by I-90 (Chicago) they close at midnight. No go for the Ridgid 4pc kit, 1 in stock guy said "it's probably the floor model and u don't want that, let me check the rest of the stores near us" 1 store showed 3 in stock I saw the screen monitor.

The DeWalt 4pc kit was a no go either, same thing guy check stock an 0 nada, so he says "looks like your best bet is that store, they have 4 in stock, you should just get them tomorrow before they run out of stock", I politely smiled and said yup you're right, I did saw the Ryobi kit for $199, but I rather have the other two, I also noticed the 5-pc Tek 4 was already on sale on the clearance section and they were ready to mark other thing up. I did get 5pks of light bulbs for $1.85 each so not too bad of a trip. I'll make my way to the other HD since it's on my way to work. :-)

Yes, but they are not here bragging about how they are stiffing you from a deal they got. While there are others on the thread that are still trying to get the deal.

That's the thing, we do mind it. Not necessarily your boasting in particular, but the boasting of those that pick up 4-5 sets to sell on ebay. Some of us only want one set for personal use, but can't get them b/c of greedy resellers.

It's like returning from a buffet table showing everyone how you took seconds, and how the last pieces of cake are on your plate before anyone else was even able to get one piece. mmm, the heck with power tools, I now need to find some good chocolate cake!

I can only speak for San Diego.
One of the local HD managers told me the deal is not going to happen until this Thursday.
I would highly recommend get the tool(s) you want and then have HD do the price adjustment on Thursday. Earlier, I picked up a 12" Milwaukee miter saw at the regular price and I will have HD do the price adjustment this Thursday. This way I have the tool I wanted.

hope this helps.

Great analogy. I do agree with you, there's no need to boast. But you have to understand that some people here, me included, sometimes depend on these money making deals for sustenance, or at the very least, some much needed supplemental income. I made the unfortunate decision 15 years ago to become a skilled tradesman in the now, almost completely defunct Michigan manufacturing industry. For the past 9 years I've been struggling. Struggling to stay working, struggling to pay the bills, struggling to feed my family, struggling to keep my house...etc. It's been a really rough ride, a ride in which unfortunately, there's no apparant relief in the near future.

I realize, and understand the disdain held by most deal seeking SD'ers against Reselling Ebayer's. But please have a little understanding for those of us that are in a bad place right now. I mean seriously... Is anyone with a half way decent job, going to worry about listing 6 unique items on ebay, getting "paypaled", paying all the ridiculous ebay fees, packing up, and then shipping out 6 items all to make $100? I seriously doubt it, I know I wouldn't, If I didn't have to.

What stores had the free impact driver with the 4pc kit? Did any of them have the drill impact kits in-stock, all i need is the impact drill combo my current set is shot.
Do you happen to know whats the exact sku # for the DW 4 pc kit with 'free' impact driver? I believe it doesn't include impact driver for the 4-pc tool kit..... pls elaborate, TIA
