Very simple set up. Simply un-box it, charge up with the provided Micro USB lead. Wait until the red light turns off and it's ready to use.

Weighs very little.
Easy keyless chuck,.
Provided common size bit.
Charge time isn't too long.
Battery lasts for a long time.
Works well as a Driver / Drill (tested)
Looks nice & easy to store away.
Built in battery. Could be a problem later on if it isn't maintained but other than that there's really not a lot to pick on for bad points with this tool.

It's cheap and good for small assembly and drilling work.
