DeWalt DC742KA 12v Cordless DrillThe DeWalt DC742KA compact 12v cordless drill scores a 7.8 overall rating. This NiCd model has above average power for the 12v class of drills. It received a solid 4.2 rating from Amazon users and has very few negative complaints. This is also one of the few 12v versions that has a worklight so you can see what you are drilling.

On the downside, while it is a compact cordless drill, it is heavier than most 12v models. It is also relatively more expensive.

While this is a good drill, the cost prevents us from recommending the DC742KA. For the price you can get a good 18v version.
