Not sure a battery operated table saw is feasible with current technology. My table saw (12" Craftsman) requires 30 amp hr service/breaker. Cutting through small pieces of pine or alder wouldn't be a problem, but walnut or oak (hardwoods) might be. Long cuts of 8' 3/4" plywood sheets would also drain a battery in a hurry. I am also assuming you are using a carbide tipped saw blade, razor sharp. Good idea, not sure it is marketable given the obstacles I mentioned.

I have a 36v Makita rear handle saw that plows through plywood like nobody’s business. DeWalt has a 60v table saw.

A two battery Peak Power Ego saw would be pretty darn powerful if you ask me! This is the same battery arrangement as the snow blower and it has sustained 2000W power output, more than what you get from a 15A 120v circuit.

Now, if you need a 12” saw that might be another story, but most saws are 10”. Unless you’re ripping 4x4 posts a 10” will do for most people.
