This is a great price

In before "cold, NiCd battery"
Bargain hot' can't fault what's included for the price being paid.

Heat added
saw this today in Homebase. cheap as chips. well worth the money. loads of other stock reduced. guess they are getting rid of stuff before being rebranded "Bunnings" by the new owners Wesfarmers. Good post. Heat Added
Decent price for the toolbox and basic tools. The drill will manage a couple of pieces of flat pack furniture and then die a slow and painful death in someone's garage before it's called into action 12 months later only to realise the battery is dead. Wish I'd learnt this lesson at such a good price myself though.
Can the drill be used for masonry?

Was £43 on HUKD the other day. Now, it really is a good deal.
Worth it for the very occasional user

you mean the battery is dead dead? as in doesnt charge anymore?
Nicad are old now not worth it you need li-ion just like mobile phones to hold charge n not to recharge after every few days or when you need it it's gone flat even as average joe diy not worth it
Awesome price voted hot
great price even for me who hates diy
going to collect tomorrow thanks
Is the drill any good with this deal? Cheers.

No its not, with "very occasional" use the Ni-Cad battery will fail as they self discharge relatively quickly (approx 1% a day) , once discharged the nickel cadmium crystallises rendering the battery knackered.

See hardwaresecrets.com/the…es/
Thanks for that!
Is it possible to put a lithium ion battery and put it in the drill? Or would it just be cheaper and easier to buy a better drill?
Thanks

Surely even if the drill's a bag of spanners, £20 for the rest of it is still a good buy. Hot from me

If they do one to fit then it would work in the drill however you would also need a different charger too all adding up.


A better buy if its a drill you are after is this 20v li-on one at Argos its a hammer drill, with 2 batteries and 3 year warranty for £59.99


Or even better for £5 less a hammer drill, 2 batteries, 20v li-on, 13mm chuck (rather than 10mm as above) same 3 year warranty , baffled why original price was so much lower than the above though as it appears better spec and other than that only real difference is a soft case rather than hard.

See above edit
Only just, mostly Poundland type items. Still, overall good for a very light diy project, then throw out the drill as it'll die before the next one. The reason manufacturers still peddle inferior nicad kit is that they make money through the high replacement rate. Lithium is the only way to go.
I was thinking of this to assemble a flat pack and maybe other occasional use, but the battery doesn't seem good? Am I better of with thus? amazon.co.uk/gp/…_14?qid=1454750405&sr=8-14π=AC_SX220_SY330_QL65&keywords=Screw+driver

Think of it more as a 12v electric screwdriver with a chuck than a drill. It will make pilot holes in soft wood but don't expect to put up shelves on external walls with it.
No stock for about 10 miles around me

I had a Black and Decker 18v Ni-cad one and the battery has just died 2 weeks ago. Very occasional use. It was bought in 2002. Funny how people were perfectly happy with Ni-cad and they didn't all die after a year until new tech came out. Not saying lithium ion isn't better, they obviously are, but they are also 3 times the price, will they last 3 times longer?
Is this better value if you're only after the drill/driver? hotukdeals.com/dea…949

Wait now what? Mobile phone charge lasts a few days? I never got that memo oO;)
This is cheap
12 left in Southport.
I must admit i brought the challenge extreme 18v nicad from argos £17 iirc and its ma aged to drill holes in concrete block walls holes through metal and assemble a bunkbed set all with one charge olus ither minor tasks for the price it was amazing not sure if this 1wv woyld have the grunt tho
No mention of a charger in the description?
I'm guessing this has charging dock?

Not necessarily true, I bought my dad a Makita 9.6v nicad 6093D drill in the early Nineties (the classic boomerang shape one), it's hardly ever been used, I tried it recently and both batteries hold a perfectly decent charge it did't run down or loose power during a difficult fence repair job.

I have a black and decker in mint condition. It's 10yrs old and batteries died on it. Replacement batteries cost a bomb but I don't want to throw it away. Shame.
Spotted this cracker for the more actute in homebase clearance section....what a bargain....I wonder what they do when they really want to clear their shelves, knock 7p off!
Doesn't seem like a bad deal. Just purchased one for myself in Nottingham after reserving it online. For just under £20 you can't really go wrong. This is even more beneficial if you don't have any household tools to begin with - you're getting a good DIY starter set.

A drill this cheap definitely wouldn't manage it. A hammer drill should do just fine unless you've a high quality combi drill such as a mikita, dewalt, hitachi etc.

You'd have to try your luck. lol. Some don't come with chargers so you may have to buy separately.

​sorry mate , I've still got a nicad battery reciprocator saw , drill and rip saw and all are fine. you always drain down these batteries before charging again. look after the tools and they will look after you!
Hope this gives non tradesmen some knowledge on this area.
