Soft-grip handleVariable speed with electric brake

LED light

No load speed, 0-1350 RPM

Forward/reverse function

19 torque settings

3-5 hour charging time

Automatic spindle lock

Includes 13 piece Accessory Kit

Product reference: 65166

Mmm, voted hot and it went down to -7. Sorry.
I've got the older version of this and it's great for basic light use and makes a fantastic screwdriver.

Overpriced for Aldi own brand tat. Only worth about £15

I spent £4.95 more for a Draper with much bigger interchangeable universal 14.4V battery.

The Lidl 10.8v drill was only £4 more with a better recharge of 1 hour. 3-5 hours is not good.

Was that Li-ion?
If so where was it?

Can you post a similar spec deal for £15 or even £25 please? That way we can ensure you're not spouting the usual anti-Aldi and Lidl drivel.

On a separate note I see one of your employers aren't doing too clever.....

More market share lost to Aldi and Lidl I guess!!!

Picked one up this morning as it was mentioned on another deal.

Basically picked it up to use as a screwdriver.
Had some wooden frames I needed to dismantle (about 30 4" screws apiece).
Took one apart a few weeks ago took me a lot of effort, you known when the screws have been forced right it and takes all your might to do a quarter turn. Well after doing one frame I decided I need one of these.

Just took me 10 minutes to undo the other 2 frames without a problem, So I'm more than happy with it

Pick one up today states on the box 1 hour quick charger and can confirm my battery was charged within a hour not from flat though seems a good bit a kit to me for £25

Thanks OP, heat added.. I've been drilling online for similar specs under a £50 price tag!

Does anyone know the Torque (NM) on this please. Not expecting much, but nice to know.

I bought one very similar to this one from Aldi last year, and its good enough for my usage. I think I only paid something round the £17 mark.

It's rechargeable. I'm not sure if it's Li-ion or not though. Here's the link: amazon.co.uk/gp/…s00

I'm fairly certain that the Draper one

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0001KA1P8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00

Is NiCad.

I emailed Aldi Customer service, to ask if the battery was covered by the 3 yr Warrenty and it is, so that's good. I picked one up from Stevenege, it comes in a plastic case that has good metal clips on it (not the cheap Plastic Clips), In side is the Drill, 1 Battery (bit of a shame it isn't 2), the charger, 6 Drill Bits, 6 Screwdriver Bits and 1 magnetic holder, not bad for £25

Thanks, that one is ni-cad so totally different technology.
It's not always about the voltage, these li-ion batteries hold their charge between usage.
I picked one up today and it seems pretty good, 1 hour charge etc

I got mine to replace one of these B&D 12v drills
Comparing the specs (see next post)
B&D 0-750rpm & 11Nm torque, so I would say the Aldi is a better machine

Only issue I can say is the clips that keep the case shut are not really doing much on mine.
Would be interested to hear if anyone else has the same issue

Instructions say 18 settings plus drill (max torque 25Nm)
1300 mAh battery / 1 Hour charge
Two speeds 0-350rpm and 0-1350rpm

Aldi are also selling some Assorted Bit-Sets that are S2 Steel for £9.99.
Are they worth getting? Or any better alternatives?

Just read this, not sure now.
I have been buying the Wera stainless bits recently as I have a tenancy to rust things.
I also got a cheap set from Wilkos that seem to be doing quite well

I went to Aldi and I also found a cordless screwdriver for only £9.99. It looks good for the price. I also got the drill. I'll try them on some jobs shortly

Would sooner spend £75 more and get a Hitachi, Draper stuff is just as bad as Lidl & Aldi stuff now.

It may, but I'd say you need a drill with hammer or else you'll have to keep pushing the drill yourself.

Well my Bosch decided to malfunction so I went and got this drill today. Put the battery on charge surprised how fast it charged however going to take it back tomorrow as the chuck seem to be jammed open, can't turn it to make it smaller to hold a drill bit. Did anyone else have problems with the chuck or it is just mine?
