Cheapest I could find for the 2x 2.0Ah version.

  • 2 x 2.0Ah Li-Ion Batteries
  • 40min Charge Time
  • Max. Torque: 60Nm
  • 14 Torque Settings + Drill + Hammer Drill
  • 13mm Keyless Chuck
  • 2-Speed Variable & Reverse
  • All-Metal Gearbox
  • Electronic Brake
  • LED Work Light
  • Spindle Lock
  • Includes belt hook, magnetic bit holder and TSTAK heavy duty kitbox

As it's a compact and lightweight drill, a smaller battery keeps it compact, whereas a bigger one may leave it unbalanced.

Looks like it's being phased out in favour of the 796.

More specifications on the DeWalt website.

Pay a bit extra for the dcd796
Ordered one of these this morning. Was undecided between this and the £149.99 dcd778, but this looks like a better drill. Although its 2ah rather than the 3ah of the dcd778 it has a metal cased gearbox, battery charge indicator on the batteries, higher rpm, larger drilling capacity and metal chuck. Most of these things now only feature on their more expensive models, hence grabbing one of these while I still can.
this is better in my opinion than the deal I posted if you don't need the impact driver also this one is brushless

might mean something like this:

I can be missing something, but I don't see any essential difference except in the case design. And I don't think that "TSTAK Kit Box" is a better choice for everyone

yep
case looks different too
The DCD796 also has a better LED light - you can leave it on for up to 20 minutes as a work light (rather than just when the trigger is pulled)

Wrong! I have these batteries and i have done a hell of a lot with it from building furniture to drilling big bolts out. The batteries charge as faster than you can use them unless your constantly drilling basically non stop!
My dewalt (DCD985M2) drill is ace, the bit i like the best is the chuck wobble

I hope this lower spec one isn't the same!

Nice, still not as powerful as Bosch blue though but’ brushless is a plus though for the extra £40

You do realise that refers purely to the run time and nothing to do with power
So I'm on the look out for a new combi but would also like an impact as I've never had one.

I want heavy duty but not bothered about brushless if there are decent deals out there for brushed models.

Been a makita boy for the last 5 or so years rocking a 8444D which has served me well although the battery have just about had it.

Any recommendations?

2 x 2Ah batteries are far more versatile for DIYers than 1 4Ah.

If one battery fails then you have a spare, you can build up your power tool collection by buying bare units as you have a spare battery, and it makes the power tool lighter and easier to use.

Theres not many DIY jobs around the home that would see you run out of juice with 2 x 2Ah batteries fully charged, but of course you have one on charge whilst your using the other..

Of course the opposite applies for tradesman, higher output the better for longevity.

So in short, 3 paragraphs later your basically saying what I said, DIY grade. I’m not suggesting that aren’t more than capable and decent price for that I’m just advising if your planning on buying these for something a little more heavy and regular use, then spend a little more.

You never mentioned for heavier or more regular use at all.

All you said was that 4.0Ah was worth the extra over 2 x 2.0Ah as they don't have much power.

I have stated that 2 smaller Ah batteries are actually more versatile and more useful to a DIYer, and explained my thinking.

If starting a tool collection, given the choice of 2 x 2.0Ah over 1 x 4.0Ah I'd take the 2 x 2.0Ah every time, for the reasons I've pointed out earlier.
IF you have several tools/batteries already and/or are looking for more extensive use, then the 4.0Ah (5.0Ah or 6.0Ah even better) would be better suited.

But to simply state that a 4.0Ah is better then 2 x 2.0Ah batteries is, IMHO, misleading.

asked this on the deal i posted but everyone seems to have moved on so will ask it here

Q what do you guys think of the unbranded batteries on Amazon and ebay for the dewalts etc
is it the same as the compatible ink cartridges or are they a danger
thought this was very interesting

It’s got nothing to do with grunt! If you read what you actually posted, it even tells you that they deliver the exact same level of power. with the batteries wired in parallel they deliver the same power over a longer period... in theory 4.0ah could last twice as long as 2.0ah NOT deliver twice the power as they are all 18v battery’s...

The only thing you need to be aware of is that in some cases the manufacturers may claim you voided the warranty and refuse to honour any extended warranty.

if you register Bosch, Dewalt, Festool or Makita they’ll all give you varying levels of warranty but 3yrs is the standard (though dewalt will only cover 2yrs in the battery)

just be be aware that lithium batteries can be volatile if not look after properly and can explode although this is unlikely!

I use unbranded as well as manufactures with no problems so far.

Sorry if my opinion is wrong. I must be imagining the extra grunt. Now where did I put that little 1.4Ah I need to teach it some physics and tell it to exercise a bit to perform as well as big old 4Ah

and no I didn't get to the end of the link I posted because it bored me to sleep when the comments got repetitive. I got as far as the comment about the tool sensing a higher rated battery and drawing more power from it (overclocking the motor) and drawing less if a lower rated battery was used (underclocking the motor).
The comments made more sense than the article which was in fact incorrect.

To be fair, it doesn't say that at all. It says they CAN delivery extra power, depending on how they're wired and controlled.

Power is commonly measured in watts, and volts x amps = watts. The voltage in this instance is constant, at 18v. But the current is variable, and if the current varies so does the power; this is the case in normal usage, the drill will draw varying amounts of current depending on the load being put upon it. The amp-hour rating is a figure based on a constant- 1 amp over 1 hour, but that's in no-way indicative of the current draw of the tool.

I've over-simplified this example, but if a 2ah battery is designed to supply 1 amp, it will run for two hours and the power will be 18 watts (18v x 1a). If a 4ah battery is designed to supply 1 amp, it will run for 4 hours and the power will be 18 watts. But if the 4ah battery is designed to supply 2 amps, it will run for 2 hours and the power will be 36 watts.

There's a lot more to it than that obviously, but just to make the point that a higher amp-hour battery CAN equal more power, all depending on how the batteries are grouped and the control circuit have been designed. But it's not really a case of the battery being able to supply more current, but the tool being able to draw it. But I can't see why not.
