You will also have the "forgot to charge" before you use it again, and then the batteries will not take enough charge;(
I bought electric to get away from carb problems too, managed to burnout motor by taking it too far on extension cords, but bought a replacement for it's other qualities.

If you are close enough to use an extension cord: Remington makes an excellent small electric chain saw I used for small stuff around the house before I got in the tree business. Had more power than the battery chain saw, was much lighter and never caused me a problem. Also cost $40.00 at the time - not $400.
