Volts,,, 18 or 24???

I've seen the "drill auger" in action and I'm VERY impressed. The one I saw was a 18V Ryobi. My question is this,,, what benefit is there to having a 24V rather than 18V?? Will you get more "torque" with a 24V or is it just more battery life?? I have a "cheap" 18V that I think just doesn't have the "strength". Has anyone used a 24V ?? Are there any pluses or minuses to the 24V?? Thanks in advance.

Higher voltage does mean more torque, when the battery's fully charged. The size of the battery, as well as the effeciency of the motor generally determine battery charge-life, but it's a fair assumption that a 24V battery, in the same drill, will last longer than a lower-V.

A good rule-of-thumb is to buy higher-V as you can afford it.
