That said, the drill and flashlight work about as well as expected.
My suggestions for small improvements to make it better value for $$:
* Only two 6-in reciprocating saw blades for wood included.
- Metal is cheap, so how about a full set of blades?
* Light bulb was the old incandescent type.
- LEDs are cheap, brighter, use less power, last longer and forgive being dropped on concrete.
* Circular saw blade was a bit difficult to install and instructions were unhelpful.
- How about hiring a native English speaker to write the instructions for the US market?
* Nylon carrying bag is good; the inside & outside pockets are convenient.
- Saw blades will eventually wear holes through the sides, so cheap plastic snap-on blade-protectors would be such a nice touch.
- Bag Color is black and gets dirty as soon as you use it. How about grey, tan or other neutral color?
More expensive improvements which may not be feasible for the price:
- 3 batteries instead of 2.
- A hammer-drill.
- Hard carrying case.
- Worldwide battery charger (plug into 100-240 volts).
- Dual battery charger (charge 2 units at once).
The drill is powerful enough for household drilling. Even my wife uses this to drill whatever she wants on the wall or cabinet.
The flashlight was a stable for my outside storage unit. It's a good plus.
Have not use the circular saw yet so I cannot give any review on that.
I used the reciprocating saw to cut down woods to fit them in the trash bin. Powerful. Saved me a lot of time if I was to manually hand-cut my outdoor rotted wooden working table.
The circular saw works well, as long as you dont bind it. It is more susceptible to binding than a corded saw (since it obviously has less power) and as the battery runs down this becomes more evident. The "push this while pulling that" safety trigger is as annoying, distracting and awkward as all such devices are and will not stop you from cutting off your hand; may even distract you enough that you forget to watch where you are cutting in the first place.
The flashlight is, well, a rechargeable flashlight. Its not super bright but runs forever on a charge. And if you like to prolong your battery life and prevent "memory effect" in NiCds, then this is a good way to run them down before recharging.
The 'sawzall' saw is more of a 'sawzfew'; doesnt seem to work very well for non-trivial jobs. I may try buying a better blade for it, the ones that came with it seem low-quality.
Ironically, the drill (which I didnt even care about initially) has become my favorite. It has a 2-speed mechanical gear change lever on top which gives you a choice between high speed and high torque. In "high-torque" setting this is the most powerful cordless drill I have ever used. The only time I could not dive screws all the way were 5" long 3/8" lag screws that even challenged my pneumatic impact wrench.
And of course it comes with a charger and fairly nice carry bag. All-in-all a good value, especially if you are on the "Firestorm" battery plan.
I am up to 7 total batteries now, although the oldest ones (5-6 years old) only hold about 20 seconds worth of charge; ie useless, other than for the flashlight. The Firestorm pole saw is still awesome.
