This was posted a few months back and now has dropped in price.

Not a bad deal for a basic home D.I Y li-ion cordless drill driver although not as powerful as the better well known brands.

Even better - add a 3p component to take price over £30 (try E97AC Module Washer ) and then add code AWINDIS10 to knock £3 off
Total delivered is £27.02 and topcashback of 2.5%

Any good ?

Not great 1300mah battery and 5 hour charger. Though doubt you'll find cheaper so good for the price.

seem v good for the money - note a spare battery cost 19.99 - I suspect it's better just to buy two drills - so you are looking at £60 which is closer to getting a better make with two battery's? (£100 last time I looked)
personally I would only buy one that had a hammer action setting

Is there one you can recommend at a good price that has hammer action please?

Also is this battery one that will retain its charge when not in use?

THIS ONE COMES WITH SPARE BATTERY AND 180 MINUTES CHARGING TIME

But it's got a NiCd battery, which isn't as good (I think).

Been after a drill for a while and was originally thinking of going for a £100 Makita or something but for occasional DIY I think this'll be fine.

Ordered!

I posted and bought this previously at a higher price and think it was a great buy. It is obviously not as good as the very expensive ones, but great for DIY as a driver and wood drill. If I want more power for masonry, etc I can use a mains powered hammer drill. My post was met with a number of negative posts saying it lacked power, but the people who actually purchased it seemed happy.
It also has a light incorporated.

Remember cashback.

Bargain, and trust me, for a 10mm chuck, 15Nm torque is ample unless you were expecting an impact wrench to take wheel hubs off their axles.

I purchased one of these drills a few months ago when they were £35, it is excellent value and does all I ask of it, the battery holds it charge very well much better than my previous challenge drill......

You ain't gonna be using it all day. Putting up a picture or a wonky shelf is all the action it'll see. So 13Ah is plenty.

But note it uses a Ni-cd battery which is heavier and loses it's charge much faster.

I had one and took it back because 3mm and smaller drill bits keep slipping. Maplin staff tried two more from their stock and had the same problem so gave me my money back. Other than that for the short time I had it I think it did an adequate job.

Anyone know if this is ok for a few holes in masonry/brick?

I have a hand rail project for the stairs and was hoping to get a cheap drill to do it.

That would depend on how hard the bricks are, and how sharp the drill bit is, but generally, for brick drilling, a hammer action is much better, and quicker. If a drill is for very occasional use, a mains powered one is the best option, rechargable batteries like to work, not sit in the dark, in cupboards, for months.

Wouldn't they refunded you anyway? How is Maplin's with returns?
I usually go to B&Q to get 45 worry free days.

I would go for the following it has 150 piece kit and
Is also 2 speeds for better performance. I amazon.co.uk/gp/…X3E go for the following little more but you get 150 piece kit and is also two speed
