I bought a Ryobi pair about five years ago and they've been fine.

Well, the (pointless) rubber bits fell off the chucks in Week One and the batteries died in Year Four but apart from that.....

Mines a Milwaukee and it's pretty good. Came with two batteries. Not sure if it will come in at under £100.

I don't think any of the decent ones are less than a ton these days. Oh, and you can use the base of the Ryobi as a hammer.

I've given up on cordless crap. I know some folks need them but for what I do corded is the way to go.

Yeah, yeah, I know, any technology 20 years old is worthless.

Mines a snap-on cost a fortune but had it years and it's put thousands of tek screws in. My mates have dewalt and ryobi mine takes the piss out out them.

I have only bought Makita for years and years now and even when Im working as a sparky they last all day
Go brushless one less thing to melt and stuff up on those heavy jobs
But I dunno if you can get a good one for that small amount of money
