Ion Drill

Please recommend a top-quality, 3.6v to 7.2v, small/compact, variable-speed, cordless Li-ion drill?

This would be used for working in very tight spaces, or for when lightness / manuverablility / ease-of-handling is paramount -- not for building a deck, putting up drywall, or any other really demanding/punishing use.

Even so, I don't want something that feels/looks/acts like a toy. And it must have variable-speed capability.

~ thanks for your suggestions ~

You won't find much worth using in that voltage.

I recently bought a 12v Makita li-ion drill and have to say, it's really very good. I had some misgivings but they have been disproven.

The latest batch of 10.8 - 18v compact drills is really very surprising. At the 10.8 and 12v end of the scale, you'll find drills so small they can fit in your pocket. Not a holster on your belt, a POCKET. I know this for a fact because I had to give up on the holster. Being lefthanded, the damned thing's always backwards on me which drives me nuts, so into a pocket it goes. The battery is about twice the size of a disposable lighter and about that heavy, too. But it'll drive so many screws on one charge that by the time the battery is running down, the other battery on the charger is ready to go again.

It's a lousy choice for building a house, but if you were building a house and had an extra battery and charger, it would do it, no problem. It's got serious power. And for around the house it's all the power you could ever ask for. Lots of torque, very compact and comfortable even in my wife's small hands.

Don't look for cheap. Look for quality. If you buy something that's half the price but lasts only half as long, what money have you saved? Not a cent. Get a real tool up front and be happier longer with your equipment.

I bought a Makita 12v li-ion set that came with a drill and a tiny little circular saw. The saw is only good for trim, but it sure beats digging out the big saw for little nippy jobs. The batteries are so small that if you put it down in the grass of the yard, you might lose it. It's no bigger than a prescription pill bottle.

There are times I wish I'd gotten the set with the drill and the impact driver instead. Those impact drivers are crazy useful, and will drive just about every screw you ever approach. They make serious torque.

My experience with tools has been to get the names the pros trust. Even if you aren't a pro, the hardware is built to take a lot of punishment. If you're just a household user, you may never buy another drill again, and that's okay too - it means the cost of the purchase is amortized over an even longer period, which means your per-year drill costs are that much lower.

My recommended brands in order of preference:

three-way-tie:
Dewalt
Bosch
Makita

Hitachi
Milwaukee
Ridgid
Ryobi

and way far down the list, what you get only if every other tool is on fire:
Black and Decker
Skil
