I've never had one problem with my cordless model. The battery has never died on me during any work I was using it for either. It's about 5 years old now and still works perfect. YRMV.

To me, the portability is the most important part.

I need a dremel tool after all this talk. And my bezel is broke too that holds the cigarette lighter. What year expo bezel would I need to get for the extra light hole. Like I already have one for the stocker fog lights. It would cool as crap if I could get my KC's switch mounted under it or below it.

Like what year is the bezel above off of?

Dremels are for sissy's you need to get a real grinder that will do anything. Like this 1/4" collet and 10,000 RPM. It has a 3' flexible shaft that you can get as an option that will let you get into tight places and has different size collets for smaller tools.

i fixed mine

i used a ford replacement cig lighter on my truck which fell through the same way. 9 buck at autozone and took like 20-30 min to install. had to use a file on the inside of the mount to get it to fit, but it fit tight and lights up. works great and the light up rim will prevent it from ever falling in again. a dremel would have helped a lot but my battery powered version sucks *****! i'm planning on getting a really nice dremel to complete my toolkit. luckily many family members are mechanics so i just borrow tools usually lol. anyways easy and cheap fix! and looks nice :)

also since it has a lip you will not see any grinding/sanding done to the mount.

I used regular super glue it it has held up for the past few years. Don't use it that much so not an [email protected] with mine. Use glue, epoxy or jb weld and u'll be good.
