Sorry, cold from me. It might seem cheap but you would do better spending a bit more money and going 18V. :roll:

Got one ive had 2 1/2 years thats still going strong used several times a week too, had a bosch 18v and these can do everything that could, battery life is better and better build too its stood several drops, whereas the bosch failed on the first!

I'd take the claim that it will drill 10mm steel with a bit of salt, but otherwise a good deal - hot

It actually says 8mm on the box and that would be pushing it, for me though its mainly used for drilling wood and screwing stuff.

If you're after an 18v drill Sainsbury's have a Draper one at £9.99 instore (1 hour charge too) - Again cheap but fine for everyday jobs

Sainsburys also have a 14.4v drill for £4.99.

the 9.99 Draper from Sainsburys is an outstanding deal. I bought one when the deal was posted at the time and its been used continuously since the day ive bought it. Very good indeed and surprisingly can infact drill through masonry unlike many other cheap cordless drills

Thanks just ordered one of these.

I picked up one of these the other day.

I doesnt have an automatic cut-off for the charger, so don't overcharge the battery!

I agree, I've had one of these for just under 3 years and can't fault the thing. Will pop into the Dorchester Branch and buy another. Can't go wrong at this price :thumbsup:

Just bought a Dewalt 18v from amazon for £99. I know its a bit pricy but worth it I think.

Already mentioned, but there was a deal for a 14V cordlss drill from Sainsburys for £4.99. I bought one, suitable for small jobs. Makes this one seem cold.
Unable to find the Sainsburys deal, whats up with the search function? or maybe I'm stupid.

Lol, did a google search and found the deal that way. not sure if still available.

I don't bother with the search on forums anymore they're all crud. I just search for the item + the name of the website in Google eg "Sainsburys drill Hot UK Deals". It always brings up better results! :thumbsup:

14.4V is plenty. I've got a Blue Bosch 14.4V and it goes though concrete if needed. It is far better than a 24V Challenge drill I used once (as you would expect given their respective costs)

Had an 8.4V black and decker back in the day and that was fine for all but the toughest jobs.

It's not the voltage that is important but the aH of the battery, these cheap drills often have 1.0aH or1.2, the best have 3.5

I bought one of these from Focus last time they reduced them for the legs on my caravan. It lasted about 3 trips. Now the battery wont hold a charge for more than few mins. I would not buy one again.

I would have thought using some metal struts would be a better idea for caravan legs than suppporting it on powerdrills.

Looks like a good deal.

What do you do when the battery stops working? You put it in the bin and have to buy another one. Is that a good buy? You also dont get a warranty on batteries? It might pack up in 2 months.

Im speaking from experience on this one cos I bought a cheap drill from ebuyer and the battery within 1 year was useless.

Not voting hot or cold as £12.49 is cheap but about right for a "disposable" drill
