Dewalt DC608K

Price: About $280
Highlight: Needs no fuel cell; uses a motor-driven piston to drive nails. Has the best warranty.

Tester: Loren Petty, Boise, Idaho
Skill level: Average DIYer
Used tool to: Assemble pine cabinets.
My two cents: "While it worked well with pine, it struggled in oak scraps. Much quieter than a compressor."
Tool stats: 7½ pounds, 18-volt lithium-ion battery with 60-minute charger; holds 110 nails, to 2 inches long; drives 800 2-inch nails per charge, four to five per second. Includes adjustable drive depth, single or sequential nailing, three-year tool warranty.
