However, the really very "bad" will come when GW decides not to offer this battery anymore and when that happens my tools will immediately become obsolete. That's not very environmentally friendly in the long run except that pretty much all of it can be recycled if taken to the proper facility.

I am a little surprised that you have so many batteries in use because I would think that you could get by with fewer of them since they are interchangeable.

Please do not use the information I have provided to pad the review on your site unless Permies is being compensated in some way or you have some kind of agreement with them. As someone who also runs a forum I run into information theft all the time and please correct me if I'm wrong but it appears fishy to have a review up on another site while stating here you are looking at buying one.
