Been using this brand for a while in smoke alarms and multimeters. Their alkaline range does fair pretty well against other brands with exception of not lasting quite as long as Duracell. Price vs performance is good.
Nah that's "D" cells not 9v pp3's all my old JCB's had "D" cells (y) Or was that Tonka's :/ (confused)
Yeah but have you ever tried to dig with a battery?
Diggers have batteries - don't they?
Think you will find that these are the same batteries used to power all JCB diggers, two for a small digger right up to 16 for the massive tippers.

It actually looks decent but they've made a lot of low quality stuff which damages the reputation of their better stuff

Cheers for that. Yeah i think ill look for a seperate impact driver to go with this
It would be fine for pre-drilling. For driving, you really want a clutch that you can adjust the torque on. For meaty screws in hardwood, you may need an impact driver. It depends on the application.
Would this be any good for predrilling and then driving in timber lock screws in hardwood sleepers?
The Lidl one is SDS, which is miles better on hammer action. It also comes with a standard Chuck, so it’s more versatile. SDS drills have a little bit of play in them, so maybe not so accurate for drilling small holes. Personally, I’d buy the Lidl one, plus a battery operated drill driver. That way, you’ll be well set up, as You would not want to use either of these for driving screws.
JCB seems more powerful.

JCB 18V 5Ah Li-ion Battery for £20 @ B&Q (free click and collect)£20B&Q Deals
Worth considering if you already have some JCB power tools. :) Compatible with JCB 18v series. Was £60, now £20 Features and benefits Lithium-ion battery technology … Read more
Thanks, I did consider WORX but I ended up getting a Ryobi. The B&Q Club sent me a £10 off voucher so I used that to bring the price down a bit. I used it to screw log roll pins and brackets into sleepers when I was landscaping the garden, it was just the ticket.
I use a lot of Worx tools and find them very good. 170Nm impact with battery, charger, case £70 from official supplier on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WORX-WX291-18V-20V-MAX-Cordless-Impact-Driver-with-2-0-Ah-Battery/184159447204?hash=item2ae0c228a4:g:~9sAAOSw8V9dt~im
Nice one (y)
This is down to £70 now. There’s also the drill driver for the same price. Worth getting some extra batteries too as they’re £20 at the moment.
It depends on what you mean by "them" ? If you are asking about this deal then just click on the link. If you are talking about the Aldi one then the answer is no.
This should do it (2 batteries too!): https://www.toolstation.com/bauker-18v-li-ion-cordless-drill-driver/p91867 Or even this: https://www.toolstation.com/bauker-12v-li-ion-cordless-drill-driver/p83914
Just go on ebay or something search drill brush attachment, absolutely loads to choose from. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274411200901
Please share link to said cloth brush attachment
Yeah I said above I knew I didn't need an impact I'm just clueless with drills, the one I had was just some naff thing my grandad gave me and hes been dead 10 years so it must have been at least 15 years old. This hammer function is that to just get stubborn screws in the wall when they dont want to? The one somebody linked me somebody said it didn't have a charger so didn't bother... I'm just wanting something with everything ready for me

Technically correct - but I'll probably still be calling them flush mounted pattress boxes in years to come ... and where do you get "patrice" from? :)
A Patrice goes on the surface fella (lol)
no, plumbers ARE big tools.
It's a description for its most common use, I wouldn't get too het up about it. Like a steak knife - it's just a knife of some sort, could use it to cut cheese or fruit. Or a pasting brush - just a brush of some sort, could use it to paint or apply sun cream.
Anyone else manage to find a charger for this? Struggling to find one.
Thanks for the info
I did bit of digging and from what I can tell this is a new range started in January. This new stuff is not compatible with anything I know so far. Got the driver and the battery and driver is really powerful compared to my work zone driver. Has a little lag between pressing the trigger and motor kicking in maybe due to it being brushless but still very good for the price. B&Q does the brushed version for £80.
I’d love to also find out, I know there’s someone out there that does know this info because I remember someone posted a compatibility list on another post a few months back but I just can’t find the post. I would live to buy this drill but don’t want to buy the charger and battery if I already have something that’s computable. I have dewalt and Worx.
Anyone found out if these batteries and charger are compatible worn any other brands?

And with rechargables usually 1.2v and Standards 1.5v there are a number of items that need the 1.5v to function.
These are the worst batteries I have ever had, cheap but for a reason, dont last long at all.
Can't always do that, 150+ batteries in use in our house, I have kids & a Mrs who don't return or look after rechargeables & a lot of the stuff the batteries sit in for years, not the best for rechargeables. It takes pot loads of money and effort to keep on top of that many rechargeables, I use a mix, some alkaline some rechargeable.
These are junk. Had a set in a cupboard. They were all dead 3 months after I bought them.
What are good ones to get (I've heard Ikea?). The £15 (for their) charger puts me off as I don't go through batteries, still got ones in the remote that came with the TV in the summer of 2018.
I still come across some equipment which don't work or work well with the 1.2V rechargeable batteries so alkalines and the like are the only option.
While £2.29 is a very good price, if you add the postage it will be more expensive than their normal price at Home Bargains, £3.99. This price is OK for those who want them delivered. I wish they would have had a C&C for £2.29...
Or around £4, as these are £3.99 at HB.
You pick these up in Home Bargains for around the £3 price.
