“Charger Melts”

Written on: 24/10/2013

Thought when I bought this from Argos that I'd got a bargain...how wrong can you be! Once charged the power diminishes with every second of usage and knowing that this unit only benefits from a long sustained charging procedure, I left it on charge for five hours.....Didn't realise the implications of such a decision... When I returned to unplug it from the charger, I found the charger had actually melted and become mis-shapen. So I now have a cordless drill with no means to charge it. So if… Read Full Review

“It's a toy”

Written on: 23/05/2013 by lurlenetaylor2812 (4 reviews written)

From the box this drill looked very good, and but unfortunately for me I'm not a tech person so I couldn't really work out the specifications, but the problem I found is that the drill is not up for the challenge, is too weak to drill into a proper concrete wall so it basically was no use to me. I can recommend it though if you have simple work to do… Read Full Review

I used my drill (as a light use DIYer) for less than a year, first one battery would not charge then after a few more weeks the other one went the same way!!! These batteries are not "fit for purpose" This screwdriver should removed from sale. These batteries are Xtreme, extremely poor that is!!!… Read Full Review

“DON'T BUY THIS.”

Written on: 28/02/2012

I bought Challenge Xtreme Hammer Drill and Screwdriver as a set 11 months ago from Argos. As I have my old Black and Decker corded drill from last century and a cheap Wickes screwdriver the Challenge set has had a very easy life. 1st. the Challenge Screwdriver just couldn't cope with 11/14" No. 6 screws into predrilled holes. (Made a screaming sound after attempting 3 and stopped working!) Never mind my old Wickes one did over 120 before asking to be recharged and is again up and ready to… Read Full Review

“What a letdown”

Written on: 27/11/2011 by casey11 (1 review written)

Just like the rest of the reviews this was the worst drill I have ever bought. The torque is not up to the job and of course the batteries are usless, I am unable to charge any of mine and the cost of replacements is absurd for the same thing to happen again. Keep complaining but no joy to be had. About time they took this out of circulation… Read Full Review
