Only one battery, but I've not seen a cheaper Li Ion drill by a decent manufacturer than this

I got an Hitachi Li-ion for £89 at B&Q which had two batteries.... so there are other decent branded li ion deals out there..

Often when you get two batteries you get half the number of cells compared to one battery so makes no odds anyway.... Good deal

Yes but this is a Li-ion battery not a Ni-cad big big difference in power and lasting ability.

I am a Dewalt stockist and havent had that many tools back. And i find their customer service pretty good.

How good are dewalt? Aren't they black and deckers high end brand? How do they compare to Bosch?

having 2 batteries means you can use one whilst the other is charging, having only 1 means you have to wait once it's used up to recharge :p

Er? its 1.1 amp hours? the type of battery won't affect the lasting ability. If the drill is 18volts and the motor has a specific current requirement then the drill will surely last the same amount of time regardless of the battery type. The battery is not going to give a longer run time for the same amp hour rating.... to do so would defy the point of the amp hour rating. The advantage might be in the method of delivery, in the fact it can pull more current but with drills the motors tend to increase in voltage rather than in current and so its unlikely that the change of battery would lead to an increase in power. The advantage as far as i can see is that reduced charging time that this technology can offer and the much reduced issues with memory effects meaning that the battery lasts its correct time for longer.

I will happily be corrected but i believe the above is worth considering before expecting miracles from this drill or expecting to see an improvement in torque or initial battery length compared to more traditional batterys.

dewalt were very good drills for the pro market, not quite as good as they used to be but still top end drills if a little pricy. given the choice between this and B&D ect this is the one to get.
i would buy these or makita tbh. hilti are good but too expensive.

I just bought a panasonic and it wipes the floor with dewalt more money but as the saying goes you get what you pay for

We have five dewalts at work, one of them is seven years old. Never had any trouble with any of them.

i have had 18 and 14.4v dewalt drills over the past 10 years and presently using a 12v one which is capable for most drilling i do as a electrician, personally i wouldnt look any further than this make for battery operated combi drill.
#21
Help, I cant find this on the B&Q site, does anyone know if this has expired?:(
#22
Went into B&Q today and they had a stack of these. Priced up at £129 but scanned at £89.98, so still available.
