I had this set few months ago and it's not too strong for putting a screw on a snow shovel.

Does it come with a full size charger or a smaller slow charger?

Have this drill and have had no troubles drilling or driving a variety of screws. Seems perfectly fine for average homeowner (non-contractor) use.

Standard size charger. I used it for light duty only.

Hi, I am a first-time buyer on drills. I'd like to drill wood board up to one inch and aluminum plate up to 0.25". I don't care if it is cord or cordless. According to your experience, do you think this deal fits my requirement? Thanks.

It's a good back-up drill. Not a lot of torque, really. The 20v seems to drain it faster than it should on heavy jobs.

I use my dewalt for real jobs and this for light stuff around the house.

Nope.
I don't know how often you plan to do each of those jobs, but if you're drilling through an inch of wood frequently that's a lot of work for a drill. It sounds like you need a more expensive drill. I would say $150 or so region.

Before anyone chimes in, If you buy a $1000 it will cover all of your needs, and if you buy a $11 drill it will fall apart. Obviously. But if you're going to really be drilling into wood a upper medium priced drill should cover it. A back up battery is a nice feature to have as well.

Yes. I have used this drill for various tasks: to assemble RTA furniture, drive concrete anchor screws in cinder block (predrilled with a hammer drill) for GearWall installation, drive GearTrack channels into studs, built a pegboard storage panel, etc. It has never bogged down or failed to complete whichever drilling/driving activity I have asked of it. Never had a battery die in the midst of a project either.

FWIW, I got it on this deal last year:

Something to think about is the tool "ecosystem" you will be using, as it is frequently convenient to have additional battery packs so you don't have to constantly switch the pack. I also got in on the B&D refurbished weed eater that came with two batteries and another charger, so now I am set on batteries for all tools.

If you don't care about cord/cordless, why not go to Harbor Freight and pick up the dual function hammer/regular drill? I think it was $20 and possibly cheaper with a 20% off coupon. That is what I used to drill the holes in the cinder block wall mentioned above. Just something to think about.

Thank you for your reply. I will only occasionally use the drill. Regarding a upper medium priced drill that you mentioned, any recommendation? Thanks.

wow, that is one heck of a deal! I have little knowledge about drills. What is the difference between hammer drills and the drill in this deal? Does hammer drill have loud noise? Since I live in an apt for now, don't want to annoy my neighbors...

This is a regular drill. A hammer drill allows you to switch to a hammering action which helps with drilling masonry.
