I bought this set several years ago. I have used both the drill and the impact driver on all my projects around the home and yard where reliable power was required. I have found the battery life more than adequate for most all jobs. Also, when they need a recharge, the charging time is quite fast.
For lasting power; durability and ease of use, this is the pair of cordless tools to go for. [I would rate myself as an average home handyman, now retired.]

I bought and returned this kit .Nice looking tool but 30to 40 3inch wood screws in soft wood and the battery was empty. I email Millwaukee about this battery issue and they told me to bring it back and to get the kit with XC battery (2697-22) If you just using it around the house it's ok but if you spend that kind of money for a serious tool spoil yourself buy the real thing .Impact very powerful drill too but compact battery was not the kind of performance I was expecting I will do a follow up when I will receive my 2697-22 with xc battery 3 amp/hour.I will give Millwaukee one more chance to prove me this product well worth spending money

I bought this combo last year on sale for $199.99 with the free full size battery promo.
Best tool purchase I have made to date. Have put quite a bit of use on them, even outside in the winter and the batteries have held up extremely well. They have not let me down yet. These were stored in my garage, where the temperature dips quite low in the canadian winter, and at the end of the winter the batteries were only down to 1/2 power according to the led indicator gauges and still running strong.
Lots of power, and speed, out of both units. I had used Milwaukee products in the past, but never owned any. I now know why my contractor friends spend the money to get Milwaukee, it's well worth it.

I hear a lot of talk about the battery life on these great tools. Look at the size of battery you're using first off. Milwaukee impact driver and drill are better than any Dewault or Makita I've used. Except they sell them with compact battery packs. I purchased this kit with a free large size battery, and the torque on the impact drill with the same size battery as Dewault or Makita, kicks the pants off of either. Literally worked side by side with a Makita impact (which I thought was the cats pjs) and the Milwaukee out torqued it no problem. There are many dedicated Dewault lovers out there, but it's time to face the facts, Dewault has become the DIY tool of this generation. Don't be fooled by these fools. This is a great tool set.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dontbuy101 HORRIBLE quality and customer service
in the year and a half that i have owned this impact driver its been in to be fixed three times. each time it has taken a more than a month to be fixed. the third time i actually had to ship it to milwaukee to get it fixed. and it still is NOT working properly. ive had two co-workers that have had the same impact driver and they have had nothing but problems with theirs also.
do not buy milwaukee cordless tools. go with makita or dewalt. at least if they break it only takes a few days for them to properly fix a tool.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ClearwaterBC A good handyman tool
Just bought the tool a week ago and tried it out on some deck rail and the impact driver worked ok on the 3 inch screws and lags. Thought the battery powered down a little soon, but thouhgt it is new and a re-charge might help. My next task was to drill 4 - 1"inch holes 3 inch deep. The battery-fully charged did not last but 2 holes!
Good looking tool, light weight, power for small jobs, just right for the handyman, good price. Unfortunatly I will be returning this set because I need a drill that will last longer.

The power output and run-time of these tools are great. With a quick recharge time of 30 minutes, there is no downtime, The ability of the new batteries to run at maximum output until the very end is nice, though you may be surprised the first time when it just stops running. Being able to check battery charge with the touch of a button is a nice added feature. I have added confidence using these drills because they are backed by a very good warranty of 5 years. Overall a great drill set that I would recommend to anyone.

I love these drills there so quick and the battery life on them is great. I like that they have a battery meter right on the battery so that you know when they will go out. I also have a pair of the Dewalt ones as well, they both perform about the same but i gotta say that the features on this are better. I also like that the light doesn't go out as soon as you let go the trigger there is about a 5 sec delay which is nice. I have a YouTube video of this set for further review.
