Yeah, It's crazy but I just bought the Combo set for $133 with shipping.
Crazy because I already have both tools, although they are older less
compact models. I'll give the old set to my helper

I'll post this one more time, because I have "been there-done this". I own nine (9) DeWalt 18vXP Ni-Cad batteries that I use in my business. I got tired of buying those expensive batteries years ago and then found this: FIRST: I am not affiliated with this company, just a very happy repeat customer. I found a company by the name of "PrimeCell", I believe they are in Pennsylvania, they have a website. I have sent batteries to them for rebuild and I will tell anyone from hands-on experience that the batteries they ship me are stronger, and last longer between charges then the original DeWalt's. I believe from a, feeble memory, that a new 18vDC DeWalt XP battery has 1200mAH of power. The rebuilt batteries have 2400mAH of power. This is like comparing two car batteries, one with 600 cranking amps and the other with 1200 cranking amps. I believe the last batteries I sent to them were "rebuilt/exchanged" at a price of $46.00 or so. That was over a year ago though, still cheaper than a new 18vXP. There may be other companies out there which do this, but this one is the closest to me.

you can open the battery, take the cells apart and replace them. usually only one or two are bad but the cells can be bought between 3-7 dollars each depending on what you have. search for the number that is on the side of the cell. my son has rebuilt may batteries.
