I charged the battery and drilled one 1/8" hole in a 2x4 and the drill just stopped. The led light was blinking but the drill would do nothing. I shook it and it started working again...until I tilted it to drill another hole. I managed to get 10 holes drilled and screwed in 10 screws. I put the battery back on the charger to top it off and the light on the charger was solid green meaning that the battery was fully charged. I can't exchange it because I got the last one the store had. Too bad. I was really excited to find this drill for $50.
I bought it for my motorhome but its size and power made it easier than my larger drills for the projects i am doing now in my house.. So far i have used alnost every day for over 2 weeks and haven't needed to charge battery....great little Drill
I had to look around a bit to find the Nextec 12 V drill. I have the impact driver and it is my "go to" screwdriver. I like the way it feels, the power and its light weight. Now with both the drill and the impact driver, projects go faster. The batteries charge fast and last a very long time.

I love this drill. It has great driving capacity. My friends laughed when I pulled this drill out to drive 3 1/2" screws into two 8 x 2 beams. After I sunk several screws keeping up with 20 volt drills they shook their heads in amazement. It has a good battery life. excellent torque, and best of all it is light.
I bought the Craftsman 17586 NEXTEC 12.0V Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver to replace a 12 year old Craftsman drill that kept losing its charge. The Lithium battery is amazing. It only needs to charge once every 6 months if sitting dormant, has no battery memory, and can gain over 50% charge capacity extremely quick if you are don't have time to wait for a full charge. The drill is small and heavier than it appears, and more powerful than other drills of that size. Overall, it's a fantastic addition to my tool collection. It unfortunately doesn't have holds for your drill bits.
I'm impressed with this drill it has lots of power and the LED light is great. I keep picking this drill up for jobs in the shop and the house. I was surprised it did not come with any type case or even a bit, but for the price it's a great deal!
I bought this drill 2 weeks ago on sale for $45 and I'm very glad I did. Run time is long. I only use it to unscrew 1/2" long screws and bolts and I probably remove 500 bolts before the battery is empty. Charge time is only 30 minutes. The light is kind of useless so if you're interested in this drill for the light I'd look elsewhere. Otherwise I'm very happy with it so far.
