I have a 9.6V drill/driver that I use for woodworking project and general around the house use. With two batteries I've never run out of power before a job was finished. You're the best judge of how much power and battery charge time you need.
The X2 drill/drivers offer more torque and longer battery run time than the standard models have. They also have 1/2" chucks where the standard models have 3/8"
A drill/driver differs from a drill in that the drill/driver will usually offer at least two speeds, one for driving screws and another for drilling holes. They also usually have an adjustable torque setting feature.
