Small screwdriver/drill

I have a question, since I have been considering one of these smaller drill-type drivers-

Both units linked above have a drill chuck. Wouldn't you prefer a 1/4" hex type head, like what comes on impact drivers?

I would consider the cheaper batteries an advantage for Milwaukee.


I bought 2 a couple years ago. Still going strong.

I bought the Ridgid 12 volt drill and driver for the free battery replacement and light compact size.
Have it for about 4 years and would buy agàin
Comes with a 4 ah battery and a 2 ah battery.

I've been using the Milwaukee M-12 professionally now for at least 7 years now and it's still going. I do use it almost every day, so the batteries get charged more often, yet a battery lasts a long time before it looses it's charge. It will be replaced with the same when it finally quits- if it ever does.
I use it for driving screws, but I have also the chuck adapter for drilling. It's good for drilling up to 5/16 bits (metal), but if your doing any paddle bits for wood, it is under powered and too slow (rpm wise). I usually just use it for drilling orifices.
