The machine charges pretty quickly and holds onto the charge as well.

Home users also love this for many reasons, one being it comes with two batteries instead of one. This lessens the hassle of having to recharge very often. Its accessories can also be found very easily which makes finding parts and bits easy.

The tools themselves have been easy to use. Newbies and inexperienced people have had no trouble using these either. Users have commented that the tools are made with the user in mind, which makes it so easy to use and handle.

Features users have not liked include the flashlight arm which is not as stiff as it needs to be and sags if not positioned in one particular way. It is also not as heavy as users would like.

XRP batteries in this toolkit are okay but not stellar for holding a charge. You may need to keep an external battery charger for it to avoid inconvenience in work.
