Well had my Ryibi one+ combi for nearly two years and its taken a fair beating but the batterys are starting to take wear and not lasting much more that 10/15 min, So iv been looking at a new one, The Bosch GSB 18VE2-LCP 18V Li-Ion Combi Drill has had my eye for a wile but always been a little expensive but iv just spotted on a well known site theres a big sale with it, Also includes 3 batterys, Does anyone have this dril and do you rate it ? Thanks

You wont go far wrong with that drill and its a very good price. The reason its cheap is because it comes with 1.3Ah batteries. Not really a problem though as you get 3 and the charge cylces are not that long either.

what differance would the 1.3ah make, is it life in the battery ? Power ? or charge time ?

amp hours is the fuel tank so 1.3ah is a small fuel tank and 2ah is medium and 3ah is a massive fuel tank

the charge time is usualy quoted for the middle at off the range off batteries in this case 2ah

as are mine chukka,but as it comes with 3 batterys,as said its a good deal.
my only concern would be if its constantly being used and charged,how long will the batteries last,compared to investing in a drill with bigger batteries?
