I’ve always recharged mine rather than just throw them away. Better for the environment.

Eventually they don't hold a charge or need a boost to accept the charge

I like the milwaukee fuel 3/8 impact stubby for most tasks, and have a corded dewalt that my buddy gave me for anything that I just need to say f*ck you let go to. looks like it isn't even that high in ft lbs, but it's been fine for everything on my rusty 2500 diesel

Thank you all for the replies.

I got this one from Amazon for $99.

Received it today. I think is more than enough for what I need.

I love using my impact for putting on pan bolts, spark plugs, basically anything that connects to the engine. That way I know it's snug! I'm kidding...

I have a Makita XWT17 and it laughably claims to be a mid torque. This tool is too damn powerful, I'm always afraid I'll flip the drive direction switch and strip a bolt with a single press of the trigger.

Here's a video where it removes a lug nut tightened to 500 ft lbs.
