I'm about to bite the bullet and spend $109 on a DeWalt 18 volt battery. However I see that I can get a new 20 volt impact driver , two new batteries and a charger for $99.00. The drawback is that the batteries are only 1.3 amp hr. Has anyone used the 1.3 amp hr batteries and if so what is the downside.

Another option is the Ridgid 18volt with one 2 amp hr battery for the same price BUT the battery and tool are guaranteed for life.

To me a no brainer for the DeWalt driver kit for that price. Go online or Amazon and get a 5 , 5 or 6ah compatible battery for a lot less $. I bought a 6ah off brand and it works great with great power and use time. You`ll find that the 1.3ah DeWalt battery will do just fine for the most part.
