Kobalt power tools?

Has anyone seen the kobalt power tool line up? I was just flipping through the lowes add and came across it. I never knew they had cordless tools. There is a 18v kit, 20v kit, and even some 40v and 80v outdoor equipment. I'm not in the market for another cordless set but just found it interesting. Really just wondering if they are a rebranded tool or something. It does say they have a 5 year tool guarantee. Anyway what do you guys think?

If it's anything like their hand tools, I'm sure it's decent quality. I'm not sure performance wise how it stands up to the Dewalts, Milwaukees, Boschs and Makitas. I would be more willing to try their 40 volt line. Besides its probably better than Chicago Electric or Masterforce!

The Kobalt 40/80v tools are just rebadged Greenworks outdoor OPE. The 18/20v power tools are made my Chervon Tools they are big tool OEM. The power tools have a 5 year no hassle warranty not sure what they have on the batteries though. Kobalt is supposed to take on Ridgid at the Home Depot but Ridgid is better all around more tools to choose from plus the LSA aka Lifetime Service agreement. They are not bad tools just not amazing either I would only buy them if you got a smoking deal on a set.
