you are correct, B&D now owns Craftsman brand, these are not professional tools but good enough for home/non-professional use

Thanks OP for adding this, it helps readers who aren't aware that some companies choose to market "20V MAX" tools as if they are better than tools designated "18V" when in fact they are exactly the same thing...

One of the guys I watch on youtube/podcast has recently tried these and really liked them. (I mean who wouldn't like free tools right?)

He says they are a step above the craftsman from the past few years. They look amazing. The jigsaw in the same family 20vmax or whatever has a blower on the front to blow dust away as you are cutting. There's a 20vmax sliding miter saw too which is really sweet.

Here's the link to the Youtube:

This kit would do the average DIY'r just as well as most of the Milwaukee M18 kits in the same price range. The question would come down to warranty and ease of putting in a claim. In the good old days with craftsman you could just walk back into sears and they would hand you a new tool, dont believe that is the case with lowes or rona. I have only had one issue with a Milwaukee warranty place that actually occurred a few months back. The M18 12.0 battery was stuck on the grass trimmer. The repair facility said without a receipt they wouldn't touch it. I called Milwaukee and asked when their policy changed, it apparently had not and the facility was in error. They got the battery off and handed me a brand new on.

The thing to remember about batteries is that you can't just get any old voltage you want. It always has to be a multiple of a single cell's voltage. In the case of lithium batteries, the nominal voltage of a single cell is 3.6 volts so having 5 cells (almost always 18650 cells in power tools, meaning a cell 18mm in diameter and 65mm long) gives you 18v. However at max charge a Li-Ion battery can have up to 4.2 volts, so manufacturers can fudge 5x4.2 to say they have 20 volts from the same basic cells.
