I would guess they wont be in power tools for many many years, I dont think they even use NIMH yet and how long have they been around? By the time they are in power tools, if they ever are, They will still be able to get punctured and will still fail, just not as often, if they are in a heavy case then the weight advantage is gone.

The reason for using lipo is not flight time, to me anyway, it is the weight advantage. I have had some large planes that I was ready to get rid of cause they didnt fly well, but after flying them with the lighter lipos they were a whole different plane.

Anyone who uses lipos now is not an early adopter as they have been out a couple pf years already.
