Right now I literally cannot tell which battery fits which tool and which charger. They're all the same except for some alignment tooth that's been arbitrarily moved 1mm or whatever.
Home depot has deals all the time for a set: drill, circular saw, sawzall type tool, and flashlight for 199 with a charger and 2 batteries.
I then bought a set with an impact driver and drill for 99 with 2 batteries and a charger.
And over the last year needed a hammer drill- 99 with 2 batts and a charger.
They aren't as inexpensive as HF, but all the batts work with all the tools.
And I can now buy just the tool I want with no battery for under 40
