Worth reading. (I think aeroplane manufactures wished they had done more research before the recent spate of battery fires!!!) oO

2 x 1hr charge batteries and 44N-m torque looks OK for DeWalt at the price though I don't have to use these on a daily basis.

does this have the hammer function?

The bosch one I mentioned does.

Yes it does. I have this drill. It also has a metal gearbox, unlike some of the other machines in this price range.

Taken from one of the Amazon reviews:

Why get these instead of the newer Lithium-ion? Research on the web shows that Lithium-ion batteries have a shelf life between 2-3 years. So, unlike Ni-cads, EVEN IF YOU DON'T USE THEM, they will degrade and need replacing in a couple of years. How long have they been sitting on the shelf before you buy them is anyone's guess but that is part of the battery's shelf life. Then when you do go buy new ones they cost as much as the kit did to begin with.

Perhaps if you are a professional that uses the drill all day, day after day you will be ready for a new kit every couple of years. But for the average Joe who might not use the drill for 3-4 months, you are losing battery life regardless.

Do your wallet a favor and stick with Ni-cads until the technology improves. This is an excellent drill with plenty of power. Also, Ni-cads continue to work in cold weather unlike Lithium-ions that won't.

Sorry to have mis-led you. I have just had a better look at mine and found it is the DeWalt DC100KA-GB. I should have worn my glasses first time! oO
