I will say this a close second is a cordless sawzall with a tree cutting blade: You have to get a good tool of course.

I always use the lightest saw I can, and am thinking about getting a battery-operated saw for little stuff, but I would not consider them much safer unless there is active braking when the trigger is let up. I don't think any of them have that, because it would jerk the bar down every time you let off the trigger.
One is that the machine is much lighter, so using it for a longish period of time strains and tires me much less.
