These three sluggers from DeWalt pack a punch on par with their corded cousins, thanks to a 36-volt lithium ion battery that goes twice as long between charges as an 18-volt NiCd. More volts means the drill makes holes 22 percent faster than an 8-amp plug-in, and also weighs 28 percent more. The kit includes a flashlight with a flexible neck and bright xenon bulb; a hard case to keep tools safe from jostling; a drill/driver with three speeds, 22 chuck settings, and hammer action; a recip saw with 4-position keyless blade clamp; a 10-pound circular saw that spins a full-size 7 1/4-inch blade, instead of the 6 1/2-inchers found on most cordless saws. about $800;
