Every home remodeler loves receiving power tools. Look for tools with energy-efficient features, such as this Makita drill. It comes with an Energy Star-rated Optimum Charging System: a lithium-ion battery and 15 minute rapid charger that produces a whopping 430 percent of its total lifetime work! It's compact and comfortable to grip. This drill is versatile, as it can function as either a driver-drill or a hammer-drill, which means two tools in one. And it also includes an LED work light.
