I've never been able to understand the widely held assumption that
there's a direct relationship between the voltage of a tool and its
power output.

Generally they use the same size cells whatever the voltage so, twice
the voltage is twice the power given the same current capability. I
agree though that, in principle, it's not true that more volts means
more power.
