I said almost. If you disagree then please share a link for the batteries for <$40 for 2.

Is this much better than the 12V kits? I bought the drill/driver and impact driver deal with 2 batteries and bag for like $90.

Lol come on. May not be a link for it right now but the 1.5ah is not even that desirable. They always throw it in the cheap kits they can't even get rid of them. 3.0ah from bosch and many other brands are the SAME SIZE (higher energy density) as 1.5ah and frequently go for $40 or even lower with kits.

Not to mention this 1st gen drill is neither brushless nor has hammer function

I can't answer that but I used the drill from that(12v) kit to take apart a shed, probably 200+ screws, many of which were insanely tight, and the thing has no problems keeping up

Saying you can get good prices on batteries with kits is not a valid argument. Many of us are looking for deals on batteries. I get why 1.5ah aren't the best but personally I prefer 1.5ah for daily use as the drill is better balanced with a 1.5ah or 2.0ah. The 3.0ah and definitely the 6.0ah make the drill off-balanced. For the vacuum or the radio the 3.0 and 6.0ah are no-brainers.

Is this the deal of a lifetime? No. Is it a good deal? I think so. I bought one to have an extra drill around the house but mainly for a couple more batteries to add to the rotation. I have so many Bosch 18v tools and it's a pain swapping batteries when using multiple tools on a project.

Probably better to stick with the 12v. Its a better price and you get 2 tools. 18v is more powerful but most will not need it. Unless you are drilling with big hole saws, drilling huge holes in heavy gauge metal, or drilling deep into hardwoods etc, you will not miss the extra power.

Plus, when you do run into something that needs more power, there are much better models out there for heavy duty tasks. Something with a strong handle, a metal chuck and maybe more than 350 in/Lbs torque lol.

Its IMHO that its not a good deal.

Reasons:
Plastic chuck
Brushed motor
350 in/LB torque (low)
1.5ah batteries (weak, outdated)
Regular price $99.

Every brand will likely have $99 brushless drill kit for black friday/holidays. There are so many alternatives to this

I might suggest the Bosch 12v combo if you are just in need of a drill/impact combo for around the house. I use a set in my woodshop and they are amazing little tools. https://www.rakuten.com/shop/cpo-...CLPK22-120 Use coupon HOME15 and its a pretty slick deal imo.
