Found 11th Feb
This is the model newer than the 795, with 70nm torque. Most cordless combi drills at this price peak at 60nm.

  • 2 x 2.0Ah Li-Ion Batteries
  • 40min Charge Time
  • Max. Torque: 70Nm
  • 15 Torque Settings + Drill + Hammer Drill
  • 13mm Keyless Chuck
  • 2-Speed Variable & Reverse
  • All-Metal Gearbox
  • Electronic Brake
  • NEW 3 Position LED torch, High/Medium/Low settings with High output 20min LED delay lighting up your work place
  • 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.

Amazon have price matched, but OOS (1 to 2 month delivery)

If you're prepared to buy the bits separately and forgo the case, for another £15 you can get the Milwaukee FPD, a 4ah battery and rapid charger. The FPD has 135nm of torque. If you're not already invested in DeWalt, it's a much better buy.

Mind posting links? Also, do you think it's fair to include the case too as a separate part? I'm sure most of us need something safe to store and transport these in!

EDIT: But that's a percussion drill, not a combi, right? So no good for screws?

This case holds the impact driver as well, though if you hunt hard enough there'll be one around that just does the drill/driver. Or they do a myriad of tool bags in the £10-£20 range, or just get a cheap toolbox for a fiver:

A combi IS a percussion (or hammer) drill- it's having percussion that makes it a combi drill/driver rather than just a drill/driver

Unfortunately I am invested in dewalt, but this would be preferable, thanks for sharing

Yes, and the good thing with Milwaukee drills is they have a separate selector for driving modes, as opposed to the drill & hammer settings being at the end of the torque dial. So if you're driving screws and want to switch to drilling, you just turn the drive-mode selector to drill and it sticks it in full torque, irrespective of where the torque dial is set. Then when you switch back to driving it's in the same torque setting as it was previously. It's very quick and intuitive.

This is a fine drill for the price. I use it as a secondary drill to my larger dewalt combi that came with 5ah batteries. It did regularly appear on offer at screwfix/b&q for £100 plus vat but they seem to have shuffled thier range around now and dewalt are giving them an exclusive model with better 3ah batteries but a far inferior drill unit. I'd head for this one. Its not going to last too long if you're drilling numerous holes in timber joists, but for sticking wall plugs in and small to medium duties it'll be perfect. It'll far out perform most jobs around your home. The milwaukee mentioned in the comments is a much better drill unit, however I personally think having a battery drill with only a single battery is a waste of time.
