20 Volt Lithium-Ion Battery

The Scotts S20510 20-volt SYNC Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw can lasts for up to 150 cuts on 1 1/2 inch limbs and maintains full power longer than Ni-Cad batteries. As per my research, the Lithium-ion batteries is the newest technology and also the most common type of battery powering modern gadgets. It has the advantage of having the highest energy density of all batteries, which means it’s lightweight and powerful, which is what you want in a battery. Also, it’s low maintenance and does not require regular discharge as it has no memory effect problems. Lastly, it has a very low self-discharge rate which allows it to hold its charge longer than the other battery type.

As of this writing, there are 4 customer reviews found on the Amazon website. They have awarded the Scotts S20510 20-volt SYNC Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw a decent 4.2 out of 5 star rating. Two of the customers gave 5 stars while the other 2 customers gave 4 star and 3 star rating.

One customer wrote “Great small saw, just what I was looking for.” Another customer wrote “saw works great and the battery holds up great also.” Then the customer who gave a 4 star rating wrote “Overall, this is a handy unit. The fact it is so light means there is less fatigue using it. This isn’t for cutting through an oak tree…or anything beyond a pine tree to young maple. For that, a bigger combustion chainsaw is in order. I really think tools need to be appropriate to the job and I don’t see this being appropriate beyond residential cleanup and light trimming.” And the customer with 3 star rating wrote “Over all the chainsaw met expectations being that it is inexpensive, I was able to cut down two trees and stred the branches and bark. The chain popped a few times but it was easy to put back by using the Allen wrench (hey key) tool on the side of the chainsaw so it to unscrew the faceplate and then reattach the chain correctly.” So as you can see all the ratings including the 3 star rating is still a decent score.


Overall, the Scotts S20510 20-volt SYNC Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw is a decent cutting tool for home use that is lightweight and can get the job done. If you are a new user and not a professional, you don’t need to be one because the Scotts S20510 20-volt SYNC Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw will make you look like a pro and can get the cutting an easy breezy.
