          What a good deal this is! Milwaukee just keeps on impressing me more with each new product and I really love this compact drill (only about 2 lbs.). You don't need to be a professional installer to enjoy all the features of this tool. It is so versatile and the slim profile lets me use it in so many places where my other drills just won't reach. I'm still discovering more of the capabilities of this amazing drill. Even though it is 12V rather than 18V, it has enough power for whatever I need to do.
          It has a choice of drilling or driving mode, work light, battery status light, torque selector, High/Low speed selector, removable belt clip, magnetic bit storage (bits not included), and Read More

I'm still discovering more of the capabilities of this amazing drill. Even though it is 12V rather than 18V, it has enough power for whatever I need to do.
          It has a choice of drilling or driving mode, work light, battery status light, torque selector, High/Low speed selector, removable belt clip, magnetic bit storage (bits not included), and Forward/Reverse/Lock LED control button on the top within thumb's reach. I love the textured non-slip coating on the grip and the easy-to-each, variable speed trigger.
          Included in the box: Paper manuals for the drill/batteries/charger, zippered cloth storage case with compartments,velcro-type ties, and 2 pockets (1 zippered) on the lid. Inside includes the drill, (2) M12 batteries, charger, (4) attachments: 3/8" keyless ratcheting chuck, 1/4" hex, right angle, and offset. I like the feature of the right angle and offset attachments having the ability to rotate 360° with 16 preset detents. These attachments can easily be switched with one hand and without tools.
          The charger has a 6 foot, 2-prong electric cord and status LED lights. The status lights display Red for charging, Green for charging completed, Flashing Red for overheating, and Flashing Red/Green for damaged battery. The battery does need a strong push to snap it into the charger.
          Another good feature of this kit is that the drill comes with a 5-year warranty and the battery comes with a 2-year warranty. Read Less

          This Ryobi battery-powered inverter will be a valuable tool during times that electrical power is unavailable and you need power of up to 300 watts on-the-go or during an outage. This price is for the tool ony, the battery and charger are sold separately. This is great if you already have other 40V tools because all Ryobi 40V tools, batteries, and chargers are compatible with each other.
          With a charged battery, you can run or charge small electronics or you can use the built-in LED task light. It has a USB-C port, a USB-A port, and a 120V outlet (using 2-prong or 3-prong plugs) on the side, along with a button to turn On/Off the external LED task light on top of the unit.

It has a USB-C port, a USB-A port, and a 120V outlet (using 2-prong or 3-prong plugs) on the side, along with a button to turn On/Off the external LED task light on top of the unit. When this button is pressed twice, the light will strobe. There is also a battery status display on the Power button that glows Green for normal, Yellow for low, and Red for an overload. I love the folding handle that makes it easy to carry from one place to another and the foam padded surface protectors on 2 sides.
          Of course, it is not designed to run heavy power tools or large appliances , but it certainly can run phones, small laptops, small fans, LED lights, radios, and many other small electronics as long as the wattage is below 300W (it easily powers my 100W can opener). It will also run or charge your USB products. The length of running time will vary depending on AmpHours of the 40-Volt battery you are using. When the internal components sense that cooling is needed, a fan will automatically run to cool it. Just check the wattage of what you intend to plug into this inverter before trying it (Amps x Volts = Watts).
          As I received this tool for review purposes, I was sent a charger and battery. The battery charger OP403 is like none of my other chargers - I love this one! My old 40V chargers are huge, but this is compact (only about 5"x3.25"x1.5") and not only charges my battery, but it is also a portable USB power source & charger with status lights. I like that the Ryobi batteries have an on-board fuel gauge. The 40V battery that is needed for this tool is currently available for purchase in 2.0Ah, 2.6Ah, 4Ah, 5Ah, and 6Ah sizes.
          This is just another of the great products from Ryobi. The only thing I don't care for is the plastic packaging because opening it is not easy for these aging hands. Ryobi offers a no-risk satisfaction guarantee and a 5-year warranty. Read Less

          This Moonrays Chelsea-Style low-voltage landscape path light has a classy appearance and a very reasonable price. It looks more expensive than it really is and does not appear to be all plastic from a distance. The 4 LEDs provide a soft, warm, light of 10 lumens and 3000K color temperature. The plastic lenses have the appearance of frosted glass.
          Instructions are included, but it is easy to install on your own wiring and this low-wattage fixture will only add .668 watts to your current low-voltage power supply. The connector simply wraps around the wire and is tightened to pierce the wire and make contact.

          This solid zinc single duplex outlet cover has a good weight to it and is very attractive. I love the soft champagne color. It has a bronze tone and a satin finish. What a difference it made when I replaced an old plastic cover with this one!
          The cover measures 5-9/16" long (down the middle), 3-1/2" wide, and 1/4" deep. Since there is slight curve to the top and bottom, the lengths from the corners are 5-5/16". It comes with instructions and a 3/4" color-matched screw.
          I like that Liberty Hardware has other options for the Emery Decorative covers. This is one product line that I would certainly buy for the other outlets in my home.

          If you've wondered whether a cordless chainsaw could perform as well as gas, RYOBI has your answer. The new 14 in. 40-Volt Brushless Chainsaw includes features to make your cutting experiences just as efficient as a gas unit. With a high-capacity 40-Volt lithium-ion battery powering the brushless motor, this saw delivers the fast cutting speed and higher torque you would expect from a gas model. And as part of the RYOBI 40-Volt system, the lithium-ion battery recharges in just 1-hour and works with any of the other tools in the RYOBI 40-Volt family. Also including comfort features like the wrap-around handle and automatic oiler, this saw provides easy, comfortable operation for larger clean up jobs. Best of all, the RYOBI 40-Volt Brushless chainsaw is available with an outstanding 5-year warranty the type of coverage usually found only with professional gas models. With all these gas-like features and power, you can trust your clearing job to RYOBI.
           

          Is it true that this chainsaw can only be used with the "new version" of Ryobi batteries?

          Thanks for your reply, Ryobi, but I checked the manual for this brushless chainsaw, and it says to "avoid using the OP4026 or OP4015" batteries in it. The high capacity OP4026 is the one i have on the hedge trimmer I bought last season. So, it appears that all Ryobi batteries are not really interchangeable, and I won't be able to use my current high capacity battery on this saw - I would have to puchase the newer version battery.

          Answer: 
          This would depend on the wattage of your transformer. The lights do not hook up to the transformer individually, they attach to the cable. Then the cable attaches to the transformer.
