    hello. i got this drill free with a sds corded i bought from screwfix a while back and as been handy as a second drill to keep a pilot drill in or some screwing. but its so weak in power ive stopped using it all together now. its not had a lot of use either. so my question is do you think the problem is the 1.3ah batterys wich die after about 20 screws??? is it worth thinking about upgrading to a higher ah battery or give the drill up?

    I use 14.4v dewalt stuff - the new 2.6ah NiMh batteries are a vast improvement

    If it's handy then it's probably worth getting better batteries or having them re-celled. I've used these guys to re-cell, and bought third-party batteries from here; both have been excellent. Our hosts here also sell genuine DeWalt replacements as well, of course...

    Personally I go for 1.9 or 2.0Ah batteries in anything that's going to be used regularly. Why not get one battery replaced/re-celled and see how it goes? If it works, you're quids-in, if not you can dump the lot on eBay ;)

    Cheers, Pete

    i love em so much ive got 2 (kitchen fiiting) but i do use the XRP 2.4ah batts with them but id never get rid as they fit inside 300 units so well! :) 1.3ah are ok for doing up hinge plates and such, so yep get bigger batterys for it!
