In TEST I, we used a piece of 2x12 fir. We also used a 1" spade bit. The test was conducted to see how many holes could be drilled on a single charge, in 2nd gear. We wanted to push these little compacts to see how efficient they use energy under heavy draws.

The Craftsman C3 drilled 21.5 holes. The Dewalt DC720KA Drilled 36 holes.

DEWALT DC720 Drilled 36 Holes, or 21 holes per Ah. (Compact DC9099 1.7Ah)

Craftsman C3 Drilled 21.5 Holes, or 16.5 holes per Ah. (19.2v DieHard 130156001 1.3Ah)

During Test II & III, we wanted to test heavy torque applications. Test II was driving a 6"x3/8" Lag into a 4x6 piece of Fir. Test III was driving a 2", & also a 2 9/16" self feed bit. The Craftsman C3 was able to put down the 2" self feed bit, but not the 2 9/16" self feed bit. The Dewalt DC720KA completed the tests. (lithium or NiCd)

I don't think the battery technology changes the torque in the drill, and the craftsman sure does look like a ryobi drill even down to pushing the button to check the battery life.

Good testing, love these head to head competitions.

Ever try any corded stuff? would love to see how some of the new Dewalt 1/2" drills hold up in terms of speed and performance.

The battery chemistry does play a small role in terms of energy density, but tool effeciency really plays the biggest role. If I were to make assumptions on tools being similiar to other tools I'd say the motor in the Craftsman C3 moslty resembles the Bosch compact. The transmission is identical almost part for part to the Hitachi Compact. Bosch and Craftsman both share the same Samsung cells in there batteries. Weird considering TTI makes most, if not all of craftsman power tools.

I might do some corded stuff later down the road. The forum is always open for anyone who want's to submit there own tests, or reviews.
