I've got a question abaout the two different lines of DeWalt drills out there now.

I have owned the older models in the past and trust the DeWalt name.
I need to replace my old cordless tools for my business and plan to once again go DeWalt.
I have a small electrical contracting company that does general electrical/fire and burglar system install's and servicing.

I am not famiair with the new cordless drills from DeWalt.
Based on the fact that I am a serious DIY and a part-time contractor what do you others recommend? The new 12 or 14.4 volts?
What about actual size, should I go with the shorter compact series or the larger XRP series? What do you other contractors find more easier to handle, or think would be best for run times, charge times, and overall usage.? Can anyone share their personal experiences? What do you other contractors that have already used both find better for the job? I trust your opinions.

Thanks all.
