Good deal, heat and rep

Not the best drill in the range and basic 1.3Ah Ni-Cd batts. However good deal because of the bundle you get.

good stuff for the general DIY jobs.

I have an 18volt DeWalt that i got from screwfix a few months back and it has a 1.3ah battery i use the best drills there are day in day out and i can tell you that the battery on this has nothing to do with the performance of the actual drill all the 1.3 refers to is how long the battery keeps the drill going for the drill itself will take a much bigger battery that you can buy from any dealer but no matter what battery you stick in it wont make the drill any more powerful the battery is the only difference between this and a £250 model.

:w00t:

Not true! The ah is how much torque the drill can deliver, I got a 1.3 dewalt and a 3ah and the 3ah rips ya arm off lol

1.3 ah batteries are PANTS, could you use 3.5ah in these tools? If not I'm sticking to Panasonic cordless

Sorry but that's absolute rubbish.

The batteries are interchangeable on the 18v Dewalt line, if I use 1.3ah or 2.ah the torque is exactly the same, just the 1.3ah don't last as long.

Personally I wouldn't bother with the grinder as it's pretty limited in its use and you would be better off with a mains powered one for power.

Don't agree as soon as you put bigger amp hour to you power tools it increases the torque thats why a lot of Makita & Dewalt have a range of batteries to suit ie you can by a 9 volt makita & put a 2.6 ah battery on it and the torque is immense compared to a 12 volt with a 1.3 ah battery. If it was to use for trade use then you really need min 2 ah batteries.

Erm, aren't you trying to compare two different drills here on a claim that their performance difference is entirely down to the ampere-hour capacity of the batteries? :?

The are absolutely no problems with the torque on my Screwfix Makita 18V drill-driver which came with 3 1.3Ah batteries and a fast charger (half an hour). You would have tremendous difficulty using it intensively enough to run out of battery power and the only problem is the inconvenience of having to change the batteries more often than higher capacity types. And who wants excessive amounts of torque that you can't use in any practical way anyway?

This triple set really doesn't seem to be nearly so good an offer as ]the single one I bought last year, which was only £80 (they're trying to flog it at £200 now!) and the drill/driver has a hammer action and a 13mm chuck. The light in this set is pretty much a gimmick, with the angle grinder following not far behind. Mains-operated angle grinders are cheap and they need a lot of power so mains operation is a much better idea.

To expand on the above: the only reason why ampere-hour could have any effect on torque is if the internal resistance of the batteries differs significantly (note that last word). I have not heard that this is the case, and it is worth pointing out that if the internal resistance of the batteries is of any significance then they are likely to get extremely hot in use, bearing in mind that, unlike the motor, they do not have efficient cooling.

Current and voltage are directly proportional (Ohms Law) hence why some people think that the larger capacity cells give them more torque! This is sort of true in the sense that the higher capacity battery's will last far longer before the battery voltage starts to drop which is where the torque is lost!
So imo larger capacity Ah batterys will not give you MORE torque but will keep running on full torque far longer than lower capacity batterys!

Let me clear a few things, I never said the Amp Hour rating has anything to do with the drill, I said AND crappy batteries two totally different things.

That particular drill is the bottom of the range Dewalt, the £250 drills you talk about will be the XRP range which this isn't.

And another thing to clear up the Ah rating is just the capacity it has no bearing on power of the drill, the Drill will be getting the same juice whether its NiCd, NiMh and arguably Li-iOn too.
