good price for a li-ion with hammer, this price range is usually ni-mh and lucky if you get hammer

Can't argue with that price for a Li-on battery drill.

It's usually a Ni-cad
I bought one of these a few weeks back. they are well worth it.
Seems great. Much better than the 14.4v Bosch that keeps popping up on here.
Good price for light DIY drill, so voted hot.
I'm not sure about hammer drilling with this. any good?
Ive gone for this. Have some heat. Thanks op

I'd guess it'll be OK for occasionally drilling screw holes into walls for a lamp, picture etc but not for bigger jobs.

Heat from me, great price for a li-ion drill.
Can this drill be used like a screwdriver ? Thanks

it comes with a double ended screw bit according to the description up the top... so it's certainly a possibility
I have the 1.5Ah Guild from Homebase at £35 and I am very impressed so far. That one comes with two batteries but has no hammer function. This one at virtually the same price as a lithium ion screwdriver is excellent value for money. Heat added.
For an extra few quid I'd get this one from Homebase comes with 2 batteries, only down side is it doesn't come with a carry case.

That's the one

Or hammer function
Anyone know whether batteries from this work in a dewalt-cordless? I could do with another battery and this is almost same price as just a battery.

And very low torque. I know it's cheap I can't see how well it can make use of the hammer function.

Don't be silly.
Single speed kills this for use as a screwdriver. 550rpm with no variable speed trigger is too fast for screwdriving.So it seems strange they have put a torque control on it ! !

Should be OK for drilling though.

I'm sure it will have trigger controlled speed and by ideal for driving screws. The fact is without the second higher gear its drilling performance that has been sacrificed.

It has no variable speeds. Just one speed and it isn't very fast. Decent for odd jobs Thoe. Bought mine 2 months back
For those wanting a more powerfull and a lot more expensive might have a look at the Workx 20volt brushless model.
Bought one today in Homebase, was going the buy the £85 Stanley Fatmax one but seen the Workx for £98.94.
The Stanley looked cumbersone compared and the Workx looked quality with good reviews on Argos.
The Workx has two 1.5mh compared to 2.0mh of the Stanley but the brushless motor more than compensates.
Argos had it for £99.99 a few weeks ago with a £10 voucher if buying over £100 or a £5 if less so not as good a deal.

I think the Ryobi needs more sun....

That sounds like a design fault or a cost reduction too far. If your driving very small screws in you could damage the screw head. So even if you set one of the torque clutch settings it goes straight to 550rpm as soon as your finger touches the trigger? I could understand it going to full speed instantly on drill or hammer drill modes to make it difficult to use the drill modes for driving screws which would help protect the motor. The torque clutch settings as well as useful for the operator serve to protect the motor when driving screws so by only enabling variable speed on those that would be a clever feature but no variable speed at all is terrible. In some light materials like soft woods you are meant to drive the screws in slowly to prevent damage to the wood....
Just popped on this thread to see the drill nerds post the usual pro's and cons but fail to read the headline price. its a £25 drill that looks like a good deal. thanks for not letting me down

I don't think that applies here even £10-15 cordless drills normally have variable speed triggers there does seem to be a design issue with the product possibly if it is single speed as some people are stating.
Regarding the issue of speed, some are confusing the gearing (wherever 1 or 2 speeds) with variable speed within a gear (depending on trigger pressure, for example). It definitely states 1 gear (speed), but as I don't have this drill, it could still be variable as the specs state max speed: 550. Admittedly, it is usual to states the speed as 0-550, if it were variable.

Despite my concerns about the torque I mentioned above, it does appear to be well received and a good price for what it is.
can anyone confirm if speed is variable please?
Can this be used as a screwdriver?

​Read the comments above.
Really good drill for the money, bought it on Saturday for occasional jobs. Immediately put it to use hanging a coat hook rack through a concrete wall, no bother. Also got a set of drill bits from Argos for £9.98 at the same time.
Heat Added, just used a £10 gift voucher received through missing out via a telephone purchase and a £10 off from another >100 purchase and a pound off for some other reason which means I got this for £5.39, not bad.
