Already have 18v Makita drills and impact driver (NiMH batteries).
Initailly the new 18v lion Makita drill, jigsaw and Circular saw looked good - like the weight, 22 min charge time and battery properties, but have seen a post about someone who went for these reporting that they were gutless. Should I just buy some more NiMH batteries and 18v cordless jigsaw and circular saw bodies or gamble on the lion gear - anyone with any experience of these.

I've got the circular saw, and love it. Got a US import for about £60 to go with the batteries i already had for my drill and impact driver.

Fancied getting the jigsaw myself to replace my dewalt dw331K

I used my circular saw on Sat / Sun all day for cutting 18mm chipboard down the length (2m) and its been fine.

Also got the cordless grinder, again a good tool but hammers the batteries.
