Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lammers4699 Good tool, but the battery life could be better
I bought this tool quite a few years back and I am using it privately, i.e it does not have a high exposure to abuse and I try to keep the battery charged at all times At this moment I am already through my second battery and they're not cheap. They just DIE, no power in or out, the drill becomes useless and the battery is not easy to come by either. I bought an original replacement a year and a half ago through Interstate All Batteries and had to wait 4 weeks for it to get to that place. The first battery lasted almost as short as this second one. My other drill is a B&D and that NI-CAD battery lasts a lot of a time longer than the more expensive and difficult to obtain ORIGINAL SKIL battery. I hope that customer service will grant me a new battery.

It worked half way decent the first time I used it and then quit working because the battery wouldn't take a charge so I went out and bought another battery and ran into the same problem so I retired this piece of JUNK!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LTQUICK Good Drill - Terrible Charging System
I Bought this drill a year ago. I charged the battery and used the drill for a couple projects. It had adequate power to drive the screws, and all was well in Tool Land. The next time I went to use it, the battery was low, so I put it in the charger, but forgot about it until the next day. It seams that this was a BAD IDEA because I am reading about how one should not leave a 14.4 V in the provided charger for more that 3-4 Hours. Now the battery only lasts about 1/2 a hour, and if left overnight without use, it is dead, dead, dead, so it needs to be charged constantly. The replacement batteries cost more that I paid for the whole drill package (drill, charger, and carrying bag). Skil should have a warning ON THE CHARGER about how long to charge (and not charge). Get a Milwaulkee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave P. Way bette than I thought it would be.
I received this drill/driver at a company X-mas party as a raffle gift back in 09. Six months later, my wife placed it in an old unused toolbox and forgot about it. I thought it was gone for good. I recently found it [04/30/12] and to my great surprise, the battery was still at a full charge. Almost as if I had just removed it from the charger. I have had other cordless dills that cost way more, that had batteries that died after a few weeks of not being charged, this one lasted almost two years.
