The WORX WG320 Max Lithium Cordless JawSaw has all the features of the standard JawSaw plus cordless convenience. Powered by our 20-Volt Max lithium battery, the JawSaw is now free of cords and portable. This cordless JawSaw is the lightweight, portable, and safe way to tackle pruning and trimming jobs around the house, camping, or after storm damage. No pull starting; no more gas/oil mixes; no more exhaust smells; safer, and no more tangled cords. The 20-Volt MAX lithium battery technology resists self-discharge for much longer periods of time, and it has the ability to perform a quick partial charge without worrying about âmemory effectâ damaging your battery. The LithiumPower battery is lighter in weight and more compact. The JawSaw features an auto-tensioning which guarantees optimum tension on the chain, along with an automatic oiler with level indicator to keep chain maintenance and performance at its peak. The enclosed bar and chain not only is safer, but it limits dangerous kickback allowing for cuts to be made directly on the ground without proping. The WG320 cordless JawSaw is the safer, easier, and portable way to trim and cut wood debris less than 4 in. in diameter. The cordless JawSaw is the perfect chainsaw for cutting up kindling wood, camping, and around the house pruning or debris clean up.

I compared the JawSaw to A*z*n reviews of a similar saw ("A") before buying the JawSaw.
(1) The quality of the A's battery was a unanimous complaint: it is an 18v NiCad battery which doesn't hold a charge long and power drops off as the charge goes down. One reviewer said "The batteries never did last more than about 10 minutes on the job."
The JawSaw's 20v Lithium battery lasted an hour my first time with it (not continuously running, of course). The manual says it will last longer after repeated charges. Power never dropped off until the charge ran out completely.
(2) Another unanimous complaint about the A is how hard it is to add oil, which is very easy on the JawSaw.
(3) The A got frequent complaints about the chain -- difficulty with it coming off, difficulty in adjusting the tension, and with it cutting the chain guard (which on the A, doesn't completely cover the chain and bar like the JawSaw does). The chain never came off in my hour of use. The JawSaw's chain tension is done semi-automatically (loosen and immediately re-tighten a nut).
(4) The A requires 2-hands to operate. While JawSaw says to use both hands, once the saw is working, it is possible to take one hand off to hold a limb or tree. And no bending when a tree is on the ground. Stand over it and press down. The one hand operation also makes it possible to use a 5' extension handle with it (not available yet -- the corded JawSaw's extension will not work with the cordless JawSaw). There is no extension for the A.
(5) The A's battery takes 8 hours to charge with the standard charger. The JawSaw's only takes 3 hours.
I really liked being able to cut down saplings at ground level -- just laid the saw on the ground at the base of the saplings and started it up. With the bar/chain guard, there was no worry about the chain hitting the ground.
I cut down at least 20 saplings in the first hour without a problem.
The A is 40% cheaper than the JawSaw, plus the A's battery is almost 60% cheaper than the JawSaw's battery. The JawSaw is clearly better, but you are paying a lot for the improvement, especially since to use the JawSaw for more than an hour, you will need at least one more battery, but for all the improvements and advantages, I think the JawSaw is worth the price..
(1) The Worx web page for the battery says you cannot overcharge the battery, but the charger manual says you can.
(2) A Worx rep told me that an optional 5' extension pole would be available in another month or two, but the manual seems to indicate that it is only for the WG321, not the WG320, If so, that will be a major dissapointment.

Review 7 for 6 in. 20-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Jaw Chainsaw
I just love this item. It claims to cut up to four inch limbs, however, it will cut up to about six inches. The only negative, if there is a negative, it battery life. But being an old codger, an hour of work is really about enouph. I would recommend two or three batteries. Takes about 3 hours to fully recharge and less than an hour of cutting and stacking.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, All In One, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Powerful, Easy to Store, Light Weight, Long-Lasting
Cons: battery life

Review 10 for 6 in. 20-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Jaw Chainsaw
I loved this the first time that I used it. The second time I used it, the chain came off. Nowhere in the manual does it explain how to put the chain back on, I returned it to Home Depot for their equipment rental department to put the chain back on. They would not let me watch how to replace the chain. The third time I used it, after making very uneven cuts to my crepe myrtles, the chain again came off. Back to Home Depot.
Pros: Powerful, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight
Cons: Not Durable

Review 16 for 6 in. 20-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Jaw Chainsaw
Plain and simple cuts well. Its a little tough to operate the trigger mechanism if you don't have real strong forearms. Also a little bit heavy for my mom but she is tough and manages. Cuts great. Try it out pick it up and see if you ll manage. If you can it will make life easier if you have a lot of branches and tree limbs
