With the newer Ion Lithium type battery, I could see getting a much smaller, lighter weight battery to get the job done for a 4 hour operating session, but the cost of these batteries is going to have to come down before it gets any serious consideration...........Tried buying a Dremel battery for your small cordless yet??

Dont bother, you can buy the entire unit cheaper!!

dewalt 18V battery...90.00........YES, they last a long time BUT not forever.......You WILL replace these.

Regular Duracell Alkaline D cell batteries are out of the question.......15 batteries at 1.50 a pop & not reccomended to recharge

RC & Trains has a ways to go yet I'm afraid before it is taken seriously.............eventually however it very well may............Now where did I put that solar battery charging panel i picked up back in the 80's hmmmmmmmm ;)
