The Lithium ion (Li-Ion) Battery:
The new comer to power tool batteries, Lithium Ion are hot because they have 'one of the best energy-to-weight ratios, no memory effect and a slow loss of charge when not in use,' according to Wiki pedia.

Lithium ion (Li-Ion) advantages:
-- High performance in cold weather - to 0F - great for winter outdoor use
-- Light weight. You can lift tools powered by Lithium Ion over your head all day.
-- Increased life cycles over NiCad and NiMH, so it keeps going past other batteries
-- more rapid charge times that get you back on the job more quickly

Lithium ion (Li-Ion) disadvantages:
-- less tested than other battery formats - in early stages of development
-- has a shelf life based on life of battery, not related to charge or charge time
-- can sometimes erupt or explode in high heat - hot cars, direct sunlight, etc, or sometimes after tampering. a more dangerous battery than the others
-- permanent damage to battery if stored at too-low discharge level, so be careful and keep these charged well

Wonder who makes it as it only used the JCB name

This Bosch is probably better as you can get spares easily

I think the company that makes them could be TTI Technologies. Same people who make Ryobi, homelite. Could be wrong.

Agree with the Bosch. Better service if things go wrong with Bosch. Also about the 5 year on batteries, i doubt it as it is classed as a consumable.

It would seem that some JCB models are exclusive to B&Q. Meaning you
can't compare prices. They don't seem bad drills though.

Bought drill from b&q battery charger stopped working went back to return it was told it was bought over trade counter so no guarantee which off the bat got my back up. So got in contact with jcb direct they said to get a copy of receipt from b & q send it to them and they will replace even tho they told us b & q should replace. Went back to them only to be told they cant do that as their system only goes back 45 days so still no further forward.
