Expensive cordless drills tend to use lithium ion batteries and chargers which do not balance the battery cell charges. Lithium polymer (lipo) batteries are commonly used for RC planes and RC helicopters. They last much longer and cost much less.

Great video on converting Makita Cordless Drills to use Lithium Polymer Batteries!:) I have 2 with Batteries my Self. A Makita and a Dewalt. Replacement Batteries cost too close to the price of buying a new Drill with 2 Batteries!:O I have priced Batteries for Rebuilding mine and too and that is too close to jut buying new ones. You can have them Rebuilt for about the same price as Rebuilding them your self. Here's a good Video on How to disassemble a Makita Li-ion battery. So, using the Lipo Batteries, looks like a good long term solution to me. In the links below there is a good article from HackaDay on this. Pros and cons of replacing tool batteries with Lithium Polymer. With a good suggestion on making a control circuit to auto shut off the Drill to protect the Batteries from Being Over Discharged. Which can shorten their lives. I bet there is a good how to on doing this out there. I'll have to look that up later... 

Update: HackaDay got some more good tips on Protecting your Lipo Batteries form being Damaged by too much Drainage (not to be confused with Sunus Drainage;)...
