Bosch GSB14.4 VE-2 : Fantastic cordless drill with more than enough power for any job you want to tackle.
I've used it without any problems for drilling, screwdriving & hammer drilling - although use of the hammer options does drain the battery significantly faster.
I've got the 3.0AHr batteries with mine (rather than more typical 2.6AH) & the battery life is great (many hours in use & many weeks when not used)
It is slightly heavy compared to some, but a compromise worth paying for the battery life, power & durability (My last Bosch GSB12VE2 cordless drill lasted 10 yrs without any problems & with the same 2 batteries - it was only replaced because it was stolen !)
The NiMH batteries are much much better than NiCADs - because they retain there charge very well when not in use & have a good overall life (see previous comment about 10yrs life with previous drill)
Only critiscm is the price - but for a 10 yr life min still good
