​you sure it was the 4.0ah set?


you're right my mistake apology
I bought the 2.0Ah drill a couple of weeks ago from Screwfix and I can highly recommend their equipment. It feels and looks high quality.
The Bosch and makita sets are not far off this price when on offer at ITS London
Cold, Thats the most expensive Ive seen it!
Why is this one cheaper (ahh the more expensive one has better batteries)

Why has this got hot ?
It is hot as people can read and see it is a higher capacity battery 4Ah not 1.3Ah as some other offers shown in thread - for a everyday working tool might by a good deal - question about the build quality and gears material but seems to be nice tool set.
I've got these, albeit with the smaller batteries. Really useful, practical size and haven't had any issues, even with me treating them badly. I'd buy Erbauer again.
Erbauer are a good brand. Made in China to a good specification. Metal gearbox. Good hammer action for drilling into brick. I've been using one for couple of years for work - and it's had no problems. Does the job well. I would be looking for more power than this drill delivers..10.8 volts isn't going to do tough jobs. If you just want a good drill have a look at this one. Lots more power. screwfix.com/p/e…45f
18volt 2ah batteries are best

18volt 2ah batteries are best



18volt 4.0Ah are better........then again 5.0Ah are better still......then you've got 24volt......

*sigh*
10.8volt drill and impact will handle 90% of jobs the DIYer will use them for.

Even tradesman have these in there collection, they are very handy indeed.

The power in the impact is very under-rated by those who have never used one, totally agree with the comment above re power in the drill, I'd look upon the drill more as a screwdriver or for pilot holes.

Heat.

4.0 Amp Batteries are not better. Or 5.0 amp. They are way too heavy to hold still while you are trying to drill a neat hole into walls and brickwork. So 2 18volts 2 Amp batteries are far superior.

I wouldn't describe 2.0Ah batteries as 'superior' over a bigger 4.0 or 5.0Ah.

If comparing 1 x 4.0Ah over 2 x 2.0Ah I'd advise a DIYer to get the 2 x 2.0 every time, lighter, easier to use and gives piece of mind should one fail they've got a spare.
For a tradesman, 1 x 4.0 (or 5.0) is more beneficial due to prolonged use.

swings and roundabouts really..

And you can have one on charge whilst using the other.
Think I shall stick with Bosch though.

That's what I meant when I said when one fails they've got a spare..

I'll stick with my DeWalt, everyone's got there preference for whatever reason.
I chose DeWalt so I could utilise the DeWalt charger as I already had an 18v, the impact has slightly more torque than the others in the 10.8v range, at the time certainly, and the T-Stak case fits with the 18v nicely.
i picked up the 18v 3.0 amp for a similar price!

​NO, you've picked up a SINGLE 18v drill that's NOT an impact driver.......... so HOT.
