    I agree with everything he said, but also own a cheap 19.2V “Prosource” reciprocating saw that cost a measily $30 at Big Lots. I use it when I need to cut a few 2x4s for some little project, or when a tree limb falls and I want to cut it up for the rubbish pile. For these purposes, it is perfectly adequate. As a test one time, I cut through a 1 1/2 inch galvanized steel pipe (with a Dewalt metal cutting blade) and the battery made it through the first cut, but was exhausted mid-way through the second. Actually better than I expected. :) For very modest needs, cheap cordless tools are fine for light work around the home when you just can’t justify coughing up $100+ for Dewalt tool you might use three times a year.

    Just remember, these are through aways, not tools you repair when they go bad.
