"UPDATE: 2.5 years later and this drill is virtually brand new. I have used it heavily for weeklong periods every few months when I have a project. The batteries still hold a great charge and the drill's operation is perfect. Could not be happier with an electronic tool purchase.
UPDATE: Still using this drill over a year later. Batteries still have plenty of life, even with heavy use. I will use one while the other charges. Great product, no issues whatsoever, very satisfied!
I got this item in perfect shipped condition, as expected. Both batteries were fully charged and ready to go. All in all, this is probably one of the best 'bang for your buck' purchases I have ever made. At time of purchase, I paid $99 for the drill, two batteries, charger, and bag. Two replacements batteries alone are more than that! I immediately got to work building a table for our kitchen (see pictures). This drill was used for drilling the pocket hols with the Kreg drill. I did not count exactly, but this tool lasted hours of drilling pocket holes in yellow pine before the battery gave out. No slow dying. It just quits, which is excellent. I swapped batteries and the charge was complete long before the second battery ran out of juice.
If you are a professional, perhaps you need more power/torque, etc. For the handyman or DIYer, I highly recommend this drill." —Joseph Oliver
