If given the choice between the 16" CS with 5.0 AH battery for $300, and the bare tool for $220; I would spend the extra $80 to get the 5.0 AH battery (and charger). 

Also if you only have 2.0/2.5 1P batteries, you will definitely want the 5.0 2P battery because the saw self-limits with on the 1P batteries.

Note: 1P, 2P, or 3P refers to how many parallel strings of cells are inside the battery; the more strings the more the battery is able to split the load from the tool across multiple strings, which results in lower current draw, and that will give you better LONG TERM battery life.
