Sears has been pushing hard, of late, its Craftsman 19.2V power tool line – a new thing, with promise of “more tools to come.”

But I find this half-step curious: 18V is the “old-tech” standard. (I bought an 18V Coleman drill kit for about $37 at Costco last year.) But the rest of the industry is going to 24V. I can’t see why Sears is putting such an investment in 19.2?
