    Its a very long trip to buy an angle grinder The trip is so awful I'll have aged another 10 years by the time I got back. I recall when air travel was an adventure and romantic - sadly - no longer.

    I have the angle grinder-good for occasional work on boat.
    Problem is that Aldi in Oz is independant from Aldi in Europe and sells a whole variety of products you will not see in UK stores which it sources directly from its own suppliers.
    Generally a far better store in Oz as opposed to here in UK.
    My daughter does a lot of her food shopping there in preference to Woolworths etc.

    We live and learn, something of revelation.

    Thanks.

    But we don't have angle grinders

    Try Sydney tools

    I have a set of ryobi 18v battery tools then include an angle grinder. Mine use the same battery and charger.

    Ryobi worth looking at, I have three but not the grinder. Plenty after market batteries around which are far cheaper than genuine.

    I have the Aldi Workzone 16v Li-on drill which I keep on board. Complete in a plastic box. I did buy a 2nd battery for it direct from Germany. Pleased so far.

    Interesting here regarding the description of battery powered tools by voltage. Assuming we are talking Li ion batteries.
    One cell has a voltage of between about 3.6 discharged 3.7 volts (as usually recognised or described voltage) up to 4.1 volts fully charged. Hence we would assume 5 cells would give a voltage of 18.5 volts. 4 cells would give 14.8 volts and 6 cells would give 22.2 volts. So can assume 5 cells can be described as a 18 volt battery. 20 volts if you want to sell it and exaggerate the voltage. But the same thing. I can't guess if a "16volt" battery has 4 cells very much exaggerated or 5 cells understated. Probably the former. Anyway just to be pedantic or perhaps informative. ol'will
