For anyone that's not got a howdens account or one that's lapsed they are offering a Milwaukee 12v cordless drill/driver(the little ones) for opening an account in January.
No need to buy anything,just thought I'd share!

Nice offer, I'd really like one of those "mini" drills for my little tool box, budget won't allow it at the moment.

Seems all I need to do is learn to become a kitchen fitter by the end of January lol.

I got a Makita 10.8v Li-On from them lasty year and I've hardly had it out of my hand. It's a brilliant little thing. I still haven't bought anything from them either lol.

How long before an account lapses Stevie?

It lapses if you've not bought anything for a year.

as an aside
all 10.8/12v li-ion off the same ah are the same voltage/power
when you charge a battery you overcharge by around 20% when you charge to around 13v
the batteries contain 3x3.6v cells =10.8v
the point i make is you can get 3.6...7.2...10.8...14.4...18v...21.6...25.2...28.8...32.4 and 36v
any other voltage will have more cells [above 36v] or are overstating the voltage

Well seeing as I had either used the builder I sub off or my brothers howdens account when I need anything from there and my account had lapsed over a year ago I chanced my arm and opened another account and recieved the free drill!!
It's a cracking little drill,small but comes with 2x2ah lithium batteries and also has hammer action.
I shall look forward to trying it out next week. It's currently selling for over 120 quid so it's a good little promotion they have on.

It's a credit account,they do a credit search and give you a limit of 3/5 or 10 grand if you want it.
It's a 30 day account but I've always just payed cash there and then when buying stuff.

It's worth opening an account to sell it on eBay.
Check out how many Milwaukee drills are up on eBay just now :lol:

Got one from a diff branch of howdens...think the staff had tried to set them aside...told them I wasn't interested in a radio and went to walk out the door...'suddenly' the guy on desk remembered there were 3 through the back...
