I have a Coleman Powermate Cordless Drill and it is such a pain because it doesn’t have an option to plug into the wall; it only operates if the battery is charged. Today when the battery died after about 30 minutes of use, I started calling friends to see who else had a drill I could borrow, but everyone seems to have a cordless drill that won’t plug into an outlet (and of course, nobody keeps their battery charged). Why can’t Coleman or Black & Decker make the drill work both cordlessly and when plugged into an adaptor or outlet? Another pain with these drills are the fact you have to wait 3-8 hours for the battery to charge. Imagine if you had to wait 3-8 hours for the laptop battery to recharge before you could use it?? At a minimum they should allow you to plug in and use at the same time.
