Cordless dremel

Do any of you have the 10.8V cordless Dremel? I'm wondering if it's powerful enough to cut stuck rusty bolts in hard to reach places. An example, I have a stuck rusty bolt on my exhaust that I need to cut but I don't have air tools and the only thing I can think of to get up in there with is a small hand dremel with a cut off wheel. I don't want to spend the $80 on one if it's not powerful enough to cut through a bolt. It would be nice to have a cordless but would I be better off getting a corded dremel? Is the corded powerful enough? Besides a hacksaw or a air cut off wheel what do you guys use to cut out rusted hard to reach bolts?

If you can get a small torch up there, that may help.

Would I be better off with a corded dremel kit or a corded die grinder?

for cutting bolts I would go with the corded die grinder, I have both and use the die grinder more to cut metal, discs last longer with it than the dremel.

I mostly use my dremel anymore when Im cutting plastics/plexi-glass. or when I need some fine buffing done on small things.

I'll prob go with the die grinder but just in-case I find a good deal the corded dremel would be good enough to cut bolts right?

buy a corded dremel and then get something like this:
225-01 Flex Shaft Attachment / Model: 225-01

ITs basically a 36" flexible extension for the bit. I have an older style, and you loose some force with the added legnth, but its much easier to fit into tight places. I've cut many a bolt with this and some mini reinforced cut off wheels.
