Only downside of this kit is the 2 batteries, which does not have battery indicators, and very small. Still a good kit with all brushless tools.

The reciprocating saw is brushed.

This is Lowe's attempt at getting rid of their old, brushed, Dewalt stock before the spring deals start in April.

I currently own an 18volt Dewalt cordless drill with the NiCD battery. Is this a better system? The two replacement batteries I just bought for it are 4.0Ah each and these are a measly 1.3Ah.

These batteries are the lowest Ah you can get, but for most drill jobs they will suffice. At least it gets you into the 20v brushless line, and you can buy bigger batteries later if you need. Those aftermarket batteries you are buying now are rarely as good as the Dewalt genuine batteries, and the 18v line is outdated and less effecient. That being said, there are often better 20v starter kits that come up on sale, with better batteries and tools, at a better deal.

Can I easily use the 20v Black & Decker batteries with these tools (and vice versa)?

No, not with Dewalt - Dewalt has an extra pin. B&D can work with Porter Cable and some Bostitch 20v

Thanks. I've also got the 18v circular saw. I can't say that I use either of them regularly, but when I do use them, it's often for a big project, so that 1.3Ah battery wouldn't last me long at all. I'll keep my eyes open for a better kit.

Is Kobalt a better offering better products at 24v than these?

The upside for these smaller 1.3 Ah batteries is that they are less heavy than the larger capacity batteries. For the DIYer with occasional use, they should be great.

NiCad batteries have a memory with a comparatively short life compared to lithium. You can purchase a conversion kit [amazon.com] to keep using your older tools, but probably more cost effective to jump a couple of upgrades to 20v brushless tools. The next jump being 60v brushless tools that gets expensive for now.

If you were to abandon the 18v brushed NiCad altogether, you have options with other manufactures. As examples for the homeowner and avid DIY person, there is Ridgid with their LSA (Lifetime Service Agreement), or Ryobi that are both economical in comparison to DeWalt or Milwaukee. Typically, people become attached by the battery and charger line they are invested in, but there have been a lot of deals for Ryobi and Ridgid.

Maybe check on eBay and see what your old tools are worth and if upgrading is a viable alternative.
