Black & Decker unveils lightweight Li-Ion rechargeable tool line


VPX battery charger

The VPX system revolves around using a 7-volt stick battery that works with all the tools. Here's the lineup: two drills, flashlight ($20), cut-off saw ($60), screwdriver ($60), hand vacuum ($40), air inflator ($30), and a power source ($20) that converts battery power for small devices like cell-phone chargers, MP3 players, etc. These tools will be sold a la carte, meaning you don't have to pay for a battery with each tool purchase. However, a good starting point will be a kit (screwdriver, cut-off saw, one battery, charger) for $99.
