I bought this drill to use at my workplace as I'm an operations manager responsible for repairs among other things. I had to hang a lock box on the wall and this drill came in handy. It charged within 1 hour out of the box and the directions were clear and easy to follow. I successfully screwed 4 screws into the wall with ease. There were also loose boards that needed tightening and this worked just fine getting through hard pine. As a female user this Black & Decker drill was worth every penny for my needs.
