Ryobi Cordless Drill - in-store at B@Q
I noticed an advert in the sun , and in-store they had about 10 left but it seems to be a national offer, and for £39 I don't think you can go far wrong - apparently the battery's are not that good as in they don't last much more than a year, but it comes with a 2 year guaranty
anyway the details of the drill
14.4v NI-Cd- 2 battery's included
charger with leds - 3-6 hour charge time
13mm chuck
model CHI-1442P
31Nm max torque
2 speeds and drill and impact mode
2 year guaranty
it is not advertised on there web site just instore (I rang to see if they had any)

a pic would be helpful cos there are two colours greeney blue old school ryobi colours and in yer face lime green and black. which is the newer one.
I'm guessing its the old school colours thts b and q are selling off.
The usual price is about £65 for the new one ive seen theold one for £45 sothis is good.

I decided to spend a bit more and get a Makita
I bought two of these just over a year ago and they have got to be the worst drills I have ever owned. They just do not hold their charge, I know they are nicads so I do not expect miracles but after charging them up they are flat in just under a week with no use, Strange as when fully charged you do get a full work load out of them. So if you are able to leave them on permanent charge or can give them 8 hours notice they are going to be busy, my advice is do not buy.

Also I do not think you will find the batteries themselves have a two year warranty.

I don't see anywhere on the instructions that the battery's are not covered - but I must admit I suspected that they would not be, + I did notice that the battery's unscrew apart - I wonder what the chances are that I could resolder new better battery's inside the casing when they do give up? (I did this on my last drill as it had standard type inside the plastic casing)

Never thought off trying that, I will have a look tomorrow and see what's inside the casings. If they are standard in series AA's or similar then I wonder if these could be replaced with Nimh's instead of Nicads, anyone know?

my last one did not have aa's in it but 4/5A or 2/3A which were a standard type which have solder-able ends so that they can be joined up! (they were shorter and fatter than aa's)
Buffysmaw - I did attach a picture but it did not come out (this is my first time) - [img]diy.com/nav…594?icamp=recs[/img]

(I have tried again but it is the newer green lime type)
I think the only the only way to go with cordless is with li-ion batteries to be useful .
I spent some time looking up li-ion batteries and what I discovered is that they only last 2 years with or without use - apparently they degrade - as well as unexpectedly catching fire occasional - since I tend to forget that I have put battery's on charge I thought it better to not get li-ion
