Our Verdict on the MYLEK 18V Cordless Drill Driver
Buyers clearly like this MYLEK model. We believe this one works well for light domestic use. It is not a top of the range drill/driver with all the bells and whistles.
It is a basic drill at an affordable price and will be suitable for some jobs around the home and garden.
If you are looking for a good drill/driver and are on a tight budget, then this model is as good as anything else currently available on the UK market.
There are not a lot of bad reviews about this model and that is always a good thing to see. Those that did complain, did so mainly about the weakness of the drilling power, and there were a couple of complaints about the charger and the battery.
This is a well priced drill and the accessories that you get with it are enough to get you started. Do not buy this Mytek drill if you are looking for a more robust or heavy duty drill.
This one is not suitable for drilling through masonry, and it is not going to be that effective on drilling or driving through the harder woods like mahogany.

With this one you get the low price, but will have to live with the limitations of this drill. The torque on this MYTEK model is decent and it certainly has some nice features such as the LED light and the sleeveless chuck.
