I don’t have any issues with any of my Milwaukee battery kit, my 18volt circular saw will run all day at a constant speed (due to the electronics inside) on one battery doing joists and flooring and even when pushed hard cutting ply sheets for shuttering it still completed the job easily, the only issue I had was battery got hot so had to switch while it cooled down but I was cutting 4no. at a time 1/2 thick sheets into strips of four. Compared with 8 or so years it’s a massive improvement as my dewalt 24volt saw would be dead after 30 mins. And just for reference my impact driver and drill used to get charged once a week when I was fitting kitchens, they now last six months between charges as I’ve now moved into management.

I chuckled to myself when a couple of builders got out a 36 volt Makita Impact Driver and proceeded to cut through very old concrete with a 4" chisel. They finished the whole job in about 30 minutes and the machine didn't slow up at all. The new range of battery tools is very impressive.
