12-Volt MAX CXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Jig Saw (Tool Only) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.

I didn't have high expectations for a 12 volt tool as all the rest of mine are 18 but I needed something that had shorter stroke for what I plan on using it for. I was pleasantly surprised at how effortlessly it cuts. The orbital action is a nice feature as well. Definitely the tool for the job if you need a more precise saw and it doesn't lack in power.

Performs great and I’m not sure that I’d notice any difference with the 18v and this is far less expensive. This was my first 12v purchase and have since added a drill and impact to my 12v. I have 8-9 18v tools and now 3 12v. I would recommend to anyone!
