Let's face it, we can never get enough runtime out of our batteries. Every year the manufacturers pack in more cells, that hold more juice, and we still want more.

It was only a few months ago that Makita’s 4.0Ah (BL1840) 18V batteries came out, and I wondered then, how long it would be until their highly anticipated 5.0Ah (BL1850) would follow. It turns out the wait will not be long at all, as the Makita BL1850 are set to come out in December 2014.

Everyone wants to know when Milwaukee will be releasing their new M18 XC5.0 Extended Capacity Battery Pack and you should be happy to learn that they will be coming out next month (November 2014). This means there will be plenty of time for you to add them to your Christmas list. You might be surprised to learn that the new Milwaukee 5.0 Ah battery got more than just boost in capacity and runtime, but I will get to that later.

Up until recently I wouldn’t have been interested in reviewing a cordless lawn mower, but with the new battery and motor technology that is available, my interest in them had piqued. Could they finally compete against their noisy gas filled brothers? It just so happened that Sun Joe contacted me and asked if I wanted to review their new 40V Cordless Brushless Mower, so I had to say yes. I wanted to see for myself if their time to shine had come.

It looks like a new 8V Max Dremel is on its way onto store shelves.  The Dremel Micro 8050 Rotary Tool appears to be smaller than even the current 8V Max Dremel Rotary Tools, but still packs all the features we have come to expect and maybe even has some new ones.
