Just because I'm a tool whore I bought this. Well I've used it now the past 2 weeks, and I have nothing but praise for it. Battery life is excellent considering it's a 9.6 volt. For grins and giggles I put 3" screws into some lumber to see what it would handle, well a short 53 screws later the battery finally went dead on it's first ever charge (yes I know I shouldn't be doing that, but I use tools not baby them)!! I don't care for it when it's straight because it's hard to get any leverage onto the srew, even 1 1/4'' receptacle box screws. The pistol grip is very comfortable, with the reverse and forward switch there. The quick coupler for the bits isn't the greatest takes a wiggle or two for it to lock onto the bit. I thought the tool might be a little bulky to use but not at all. I wish they would've included a hard plastic case instead of a cloth bag, but that's Ridgid!!
