Been thinking about getting one of those Li-Ion multipacks from either Hitachi or Makita. Looking at one of the more basic packs including a Drill, Impact Driver, Circular Saw, Jigsaw and at least 2-3 batteries. I'm OK with paying the brand-name premium as I've had Hitachi gear in the past and it's been amazing however I just saw the 'Renegade' branded stuff on the TradeTools website for around half the price and was wondering if anyone could give me their opinion on it? Is it just as good or can I expect half the quality?
I'm torn because although I can afford to get the brand-name stuff and have had great experience with it in the past I've also had some pretty amazing rebadged no-name cheap gear in recent years and feel that the age of brand devotion is coming to an end... and of course saving 50% on power tools shouldn't be sneezed at ;)
Thanks in advance.
