Rated 1 out of 5Â by BBDuffer Batteries Die
This tool does what any other would do just fine.
I just cannot keep the batteries charged!
I may only use it once every 2 weeks, but both batteries, by that time, are discharged.
I purchased 02/16/13 - should last longer than this.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by AlDavis Home Depot had the best price at the time
I bought this set only because I had an older drill driver from Skil and I liked it until the batteries started dying while the driver was in the case. I had to keep one charged all the time and ready for when I needed it. I use them mainly for minor home repairs and keep them at the ready in case we get word a hurricane is headed our way. I use Lexan panels that are held up with wing nuts, so two drivers come in handy when I have a helper. Nothing against Home Depot, but the drivers should last longer, or Skill should continue offering the batteries for a couple years after phasing out.

I bought this drill to complement another Skil drill I had previously purchased and forgot that there are two types of batteries and therefore two types of drills. This one is heavier than the Li ion battery unit. The Li drill came with a carry case with room to spare in fact I can fit both drills and their respective chargers in the one bag.
The drill that they asked me to review has worked very well considering the use I have put it to building fence and a deck. The battery life seems to be good but where the premium drill has three indicator lights that tell you how much battery life you have left the 2888 drill has none.
It's still a very goog power tool.

I don't need a professionals drill for my home projects and needs. Â I wanted something reliable, meaning with enough torque as well as a battery that would last. Â This drill does that at a terrific price point.

I'm very pleased with my new Skil drill. Â It has plenty of power for the tasks I perform around the house and yard. Â Is easy to use and handle as well.
