This is very similar to a Hitachi cordless drill I got a few years ago, except the one I got is Li-ion. The Li-ion batteries are so superior to NiCd that I wouldn’t advise anyone to buy anything using NiCd in 2017, unless it was the only option. And obviously there are dozens of very similar Li-ion drills, including the Hitachi I have. Which is a nice light duty drill for general household use. It’s not a heavy duty drill for construction jobs.
