Taking care of lithium ion batteries
I am not affiliated with Sears or Apple, I am an electronic engineer. Li-ion is a new battery technology, with its idiosyncrasies. Apple has the best set of instructions on how to use and preserve these kinds of batteries that I know of. ( www.apple.com/batteries/notebooks ) You should read them. Here is a quickie do's & don't's. (1) Do NOT use the tool when the temperature is over 95 F. This temperature limit is easily exceeded during the summer, so beware. Don't leave the tool in the sun. (2) Li-ion batteries should be "exercised" about once a month. Fully charged, then run 'till depleted. (3) Li-ion batteries liked to be stored at about 50% charge; not fully charged, not depleted. I like my 12v drill very much. The control buttons are ideally placed for one-hand operation. It has enough torque to drive 2-1/2 inch floor screws. Its light weight makes it a pleasure to carry and use around the house. Take care of the battery.

Great until you have to replace battery
I just bought this drill complete with battery and charger and it performs great. Since rechargeable batteries typically last for 5-7 years I thought I would see what one cost. Would you believe $45.00 (part # 320.11221)? I do not think this is fair or right and is the reason for my mediocre rating overall. Beware of the total cost of ownership. In just a few years we will all be throwing this away and buying a new model.

Very Handy

This thing gets use all the time. Its small, light, and easy to transport. The battery is great and lasts a very long time. I am very impressed with this product. All my old drill/drivers have worthless batteries after a year of use but this one has been going strong for 1.5 years and counting with no sign of reduced life.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good deal

Great compact drill with long lasting battery. After a little more than a year the chuck started slipping but I replaced with an aftermarket one and continue to use the drill frequently. Not a heavy duty item by any means but good enough for anything around the house and more.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

One heck of a fine TOOL GET the BATTERY WARRANTY!

One heck of a great tool, wish the trigger had more speeds, The drill shuts off if there is to much of a load on it or stall and is a nice safety feature for the batteries. This one is built very well and has LOADS of power. I like the charger WAY more on this one, but the battery gets flat quick, so get a few for heavy use, but man it charges FAST! Mine started getting weak after a few months of light use. Did I mention I LOVE THE CHARGER! the best part, the chuck hold the bit tight so you can tighten without the chuck going anywhere. MAN THAT IS SO COOL! Can keep up with the best of them! GOOD BUY!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Favorite drill to date!

I do a lot of wood working. Prior to this I've owned Makita and Craftsman C3 drills. Although this drill isn't as strong, it makes up for it by being compact and light. I have little to no fatigue compared to the older bulky drills I'm accustomed to using. Definitely my favorite drill to date!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nextec 12 volt Drill

Nice hand feel, Good power for household jobs. Gets into small areas. The quick charge function is help full when working on a long project and it starts to run low.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best battery tools ever

Craftsman now has two lines that provide excellent results - the long lived C3 line and now the Nextec series. While not quite as powerful as the C3, the Nextec series are very well suited for everyday repair and hobby work. They're lighter and smaller than C3, making them easy to use and easy to go where you need them to. Their power and run time is way more than the battery size or voltage would suggest. This line now has lots of tools in the series, and the batteries are very reasonably priced, so building up a set with lots of backup power is easy to do. I find I use them just about every week for something around the house, and now my C3s are there for the heaviest jobs only.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

NEXTEC 12V DRILL/DRIVER - Great

This Nextec drill/driver is compact, lightweight, yet powerful. The adjustable torque setting, variable speed, forward and reverse make it easy and safe to use on a variety of projects. The battery also charges very quickly. And the battery charger is quite "visual" -- nice.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great and fits in my tool belt.

I wasn;t sure this could replace my old drill but have been using it a lot over the last few months and it's great. I fits in my toolbelt so when I am climbing a ladder or moving around, my hands are free. It has pretty of power for drilling screws into wood. Battery life is great. Wish there were more addons. Would buy it again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Ergonomic with nice features

This seemed like a great product with super features. Too bad I never had the opportunity to use it. A faulty trigger switch made it hum a little and try to turn. Took it back to the store but no replacement was available. I guess I'll look for something else.
