    10.8V impact/ drill driver

    Looking at getting a small, probably 10.8v drill driver to leave in the tool bag to reduce repetitive strain injury. I find I hint use the 18v as much since it is that bit heavier and bulkier. Is it worth getting an impact driver? Or just a drill driver? I assume that the smaller 4-6v models...
