Black and Decker 12v Cordless drill/driver (IN-STORE ONLY) £14.67 @ Tesco

Found 9th Apr 2009Made hot 8th Jun 2009
Just been to my local in-store Tesco Home and the B&D 12v drill was on half price (and many other hand tools).

I had previously bought the 2 Sainsbury drills but both are rubbish and simply don't hold charge or have any torque to speak of (being returned today).

Anyhow the Tesco.com price is still £29.34 but I got it for £14.67.

Not the most powerful but as a driver, and light drill you really do get what you pay for, and Sainsbury's/Tesco/A.N.Other own brand just isn't worth it.

good price http://www.picturehoster.org/storage/78.jpg

not bad for a bit of home diy.

Very good as aspare drill and for this price a definite.

I have one and they are powerful and hold charge for a very reasonable length of time.

Charger is a bit cheapo tho but it does the job.

Is it one or two batteries supplied?

Anyone know if this will drill a 12mm hole in stone/concrete?

You will need a much more powerfull hammer drill to get through stone/concrete.

This is suitable for screwdriving or drilling wood/plasterboard. :thumbsup:

does it come with two batterys, so i can i fit a chisel bit to it and dig my drive up

No but it does come with a car transmission adaptor so you can use it as a substitute for the engine!! Think of the fuel saving :thumbsup:

paid £45 last summer for this from Focus, and that was a sale price.... So good spot!!!

Dont try to use it for anything heavy duty or it will break the chuck... Just like i did!!!

None the less, heat added.

I had 2 Black & Decker drills, both of which performed well for over 5 years, before the battery performance became unacceptable. They were much better than the almost useless Wickes or Tescos branded ones (for example).

If B&D keep the same quality as before, that's a bargain

I bought the same drill in B&Q not long back. Good value. Be warned though, I too broke the chuck. It seized and no matter how hard I tried, it would not release again. A shame really as it was a nice size and weight for the odd job around the house.

I have one of these at home and one at work.

The one at work has been in constant use for 5 years and is still going strong! It's not the most powerful but it holds a charge for ages, the one at work is used for drilling into plasic ink cartridges and it goes for months between charges!

Very good little drill imho and just goes to show that the you don't need to buy a dewalt or makita for reliability.
