I love it ...
Light, powerful, VERY precise (the control of the speed) and with a five years guarantee !!!
I was very surprised to see that the trigger controls very precisely the speed. Something many other drills fail to do.
Li-Ion battery adds to the modern design of the item.
I just would like to remind the owners of this drill, that the Li-ion technology asks for a constant charging of the battery in order to ensure its longer life. Just leave the drill / flashlight on the stand (s) and the battery on the charger. When you need the flashlight or the drill, pull up the battery and install it on the drill or flashlight ...
Would HIGHLY recommend.

According to the description on both Amazon and the manufacturer's site (idrill.com) this drill is supposed to be "global" and come with a 110-240V "Global Charging Station for use in most parts of the world" with "(a)daptable plugs for various charging sockets in most parts of the world."
The unit I received DID NOT have such a charger. It had a 110V/60Hz only charging unit with a standard, two-prong North American (NEMA 5-15) plug. This unit is effectively useless in Europe / Asia / Australia / etc / etc / etc. There's nothing "global" about it. You can only charge it in countries that use the 110V/60Hz electrical standard such as the US, Mexico, and Canada. You can't even use it with a 110/220 voltage adapter in other countries with 50Hz power systems because the charger is 60Hz only.
This is a huge disappointment for me. I had bought this unit specifically because of the universal charger and the excellent reviews that I had seen on many sites. While the unit itself appears to be well made the description is completely deceptive. I would have been very pleased if this was actually useable outside of North America. Without that feature it's nothing but an overpriced cordless drill.
It's already been returned for a refund.
