    Good unit with everything you would need for a home job. I also though recommend L-Ion. This is a great set for the price.

    A third vote for LiIon. Just received the DCD717 from HD, very impressed.

    If they offer a lithium conversion kit (charger + battery) this might be cheaper than buying the lithium set. Switched my Ryobi stuff to lithium. They work better than new now! Forget about NiCad! Even NiMh is better than NiCad!

    Li-Ion is higher power density so the battery is usually smaller and lighter, but in no way does it make a drill work better than new. Same voltage NiCd pack is actually capable of more current than Li-Ion in cell sizes used on drills and will withstand more recharge cycles so it's sort of the opposite.

    Guys, that's why there are still so many NiCd powered drills. The industry isn't too stupid to pick the right battery format for the job, both battery types have their merits.
