DeWalt 10.8V Li-Ion Drill Driver & Impact Driver Twin Pack 2 Batteries £117 B&Q

Found 29th May 2016
After looking at the Bosch deal yesterday, came across this...

The 10.8V drill driver comes with automatic spindle lock for quick and easy bit change and 0-450/1500 rpm with a high performance fan cooled motor for maximum power and durability

The 10.8V impact driver has a compact body which enables operation in confined spaces and repetitive use with minimal fatigue, all whilst delivering 107Nm of torque and 0-2450 rpm

Obviously bit more expensive and (only) 10.8v with 2x 1.3Ah batteries.

I bow to others' knowledge and would welcome some opinions on this.

Oops, still early. At B&Q, online, but can C&C. Come with bag rather than funky case .
Previous deal I was referring to...

hotukdeals.com/dea…854

Man, I've made a mess of this.
I wouldn't buy anything less than 18v
10v vs 18v not as powerful
Have some heat OP.

Yes some will say 10.8v isn't powerful enough but its an excellent couple of drills to have in your collection.

This or the Bosch?
Very hard to split them to be honest, I don't think anyone would be disappointed with either of them.
Good deal, if hadn't bought 6 cordless drills I don't need over last 6 months (thank you hotukdeals) I'd be tempted with this
Thanks for your comments.
If you're not in a hurry and definitely want a 10.8v set then the Bosch one currently on Amazon for £135 has been as low as £118 previously. That has 2x2.0Ah batteries and hard case.

There really isn't much between the Makita/Dewalt/Bosch 10.8 so just get the best deal you can.

This is true. I guess it depends on what it is used for. For the little extra, you could say you are getting a drill/driver and a far more powerful screwing tool(!), than just an 18v drill/driver. Best to have 18v in both if you can, I guess...

Ahhh, the wonders of Amazon fluctuation! Comparable price at £118 and higher capacity batteries. Thanks for that.

Don't necessarily want a 10.8, just that they are cheaper I suppose...and as much as I feel you get what you pay for, ultimately as DIYer, it feels imprudent to pay a whole lot more...or so she tells me.
this set is excellent had mine around 5 years now used near enough daily and the batteries are still going strong its a great little tool for any tradesman also have a full 18v set

Wow, 5yrs! That pretty good going. Is the 18v set considerably better, especially if using with a wired hammer drill for heavy work.

I wouldn't buy anything less than 18v



Have you tried a 10.8v impact?

Where these come into there own is for example deck screws.

I tested my Dewalt DCD995 18v combi against my DCF815 10.8v impact, the 18v struggled to fully drive home a 4" screw into an old fencepost, the impact drove it all the way with ease.

Folks just looking at the specs of 10.8v impacts are misled, they are powerful little beasts, my 'go to' tool for most jobs bar masonry work.

No, it hasn't. But thanks for looking.
i have these, pretty darn good

The advantage of the 10.8v stuff is that it is smaller and lighter. It will fit into spaces an 18v driver won't, and if you're using it all day you'll appreciate it being a lot lighter.

Generally agree, though 2Ah gives 50% more charge than 1.3Ah, and the same charge as 18V 1.3Ah

Also the Bosch driver has a hammer setting, the Dewalt can be stood up on end, and I think the Dewalt charger can charge both 10.8V and 18V batts.

May be some good deals to come if/when the Dewalt and Makita sets move over to 2Ah batts.

Bosch or Black & Decker.......
got 18v/10v dewalt kits and while yes the the 18v stuff has more power nothing beats having a little 10v dewalt screwdriver/drill in my bag as it fires anything up to a 4 inch 10 into timber without a problem or walking back to the van to pick up the more powerful stuff.

No, it's not. Still £117, online C&C. But thanks for looking.
Just bought a brushless, trade rated, alternative at screwfix for £149.99 - £50 saving!

http://www.screwfix.com/p/dewalt-dcd795d2-gb-18v-xr-2-0ah-li-ion-cordless-combi-drill-brushless-motor/94484

Granted, the impact driver is a bonus with the bnq one! Heat added.
Thanks. That seems a good price for a brushless.
Same here, I have 3 off 18v drills, but I always grab this set. As stated they are light, short, and the impact driver never stalls in my use. Would buy another if it was pinched!
I got the Bosch from screw fix today £89.99 well pleased actually my first ever drill.. Put a fence up today. Fitted some locks to the gate. All good.
great

You already get 10.8v 2Ah Dewalt batteries, twin pack I got came with them, Screwfix sell them and they were £24.99 at one point if memory serves.

And yes Dewalt do have a charger which fits 10.8 and 18v batteries, BUT I 'think' only the 10.8v 2.0Ah set comes with this charger, most 10.8v kits come with the charger only suitable for 10.8v.

There's a makita set like this for £120 too

Can anyone recommend 10.8v drills though? I'm using a 14.4v makita combi , does anyone know how much the power differs? Will it handle the odd hole into brick and breeze block?
