batteries. I always have the rotary tool immediately in front of
me, so the battery will either be worn on a neck strap or be set
down near the work. The wires coming from the rotary tool plug
into the battery, using a socket taken from another Bosch tool.
That was done because the rotary tool battery charger sucks.
Apparently the charger destroyed one of my two battery packs.
Also, I have lots of Bosch 10.8 V MAX batteries.
Preliminarily speaking, having the battery connected through a
wire to the tool is working great. It's a cutoff tool, so maybe
the fact that it is ultra light without an integrated battery is
the reason. Or maybe it's just infatuation, wouldn't be the first
time. The battery pack can be worn around my neck, hung from a
utility belt, or set on a table (the way I'm doing it now).
I suppose eventually battery technology will be light enough that
we will reach the point of diminishing returns for lightness, but
that hasn't happened yet.
