Now this is a cool drill. Nemo SPECIAL OPS

I'm guessing that 1000W is measured the same way as shop vac power (many claim more power than can be drawn without tripping a breaker)

 

1000Watt / 18Volt = 55.6Amp

6Amp-Hour / 55.6Amp = 6.5 Minutes

 

Maybe Milwaukee's 9Ah battery can support a +50Amp load, but I doubt the smaller number of cells based on the battery shape can support that.  Even if that's the actual input power, that runtime would make the drill practically useless.

 

Don't get me wrong, that's an impressively overengineered drill is some ways but for that price they could do so much better.

 

Edit: After watching a video on their website I'm unimpressed.  I've seen drills dropped so far the case cracked open with less chuck wobble than that.

1. It may be that they use input power, like any corded powertools. But remember, at least makita and dewalt give the output-power on some of their cordeless drills. One reason is probably that input-power doesn't say anything on cordeless tools, since you don't need to know if the electrical circuit/breakers can withstand it. 

 

But also since they are brushless, output power would be much better marketing. (becouse of higher efficiency)

The larger ones is ratet up to 650W output power. Meaning around 800-900W input power probably.

runtime is generally not problematic on them, becouse you don't utilize full power all the time, like a shop VAC.

More like a second or so. 

 

2. Most modern larger batteries can withstand 50 A. (25A or less per cell). But yeah 1000W output is probably highly unrealistic. 1000 W input/drain from the batteries is borderline, but then again. maby it is not 18V?  Could be 21,6V like Hilti or something?

3. "Don't get me wrong, that's an impressively overengineered drill is some ways but for that price they could do so much better."

Compared to? Hard to compare price/value on such a specialised product for a handfull people, to China mass producing ones like Milwaukee/Makita/Bosch/Dewalt etc... And a wide range of uses. 

 

But sure. If the quality stinks, then it probably isn't worth it. Though, don't know what other options you got drilling and fastening stuff underwater.
