I personally recently bought the Ryobi drill from Argos as the batteries they supply are 2amps and the reviews on the net seem to be very good
You can buy the bigger amp (4?) batteries if needed.

What I like about the Ryobi products is that they don't change the battery design and the batteries can be used on they older range of products.

I've had no issues with the Ryobi drill - it's only used around the house and not for trade and i'll be looking to get the Ryobi jigsaw.

If I was using it for heavy duty/trade it would be better to invest in something like a Makita, but for the hobbyist/home diyer the Ryobi is a good bit of kit.

Used it inside and out it's great

I purchased this recently, probably overkill for what I need it for but I shouldn't need anything else apart from drill bits for quite a few years.

CODE: JUNE19 brings it down to £154.98
