I have the drill and driver set with 2 batteries. I got it on clearance at rona for $139 a few years ago. I got very lucky! It's fine except the 2 AH batteries are a joke. I find them to be barely worth it at the sale prices. Other brands offer 4 or even up to 15 AH batteries. 20v is also not really needed for most household chores. I bought my mom a Bosch 12v drill and Driver set for $100 on BF and she loves how compact and light they are.

EDIT: I meant 12Ah batteries.

What brand offers a 15ah battery with a drill set?

If you need a hammer drill this would be ok, but with such a small battery, any real work that needs the hammer drill might not last too long.

The 1.3AH batteries that comes with this kit are indeed small.
But it's not like DeWalt doesn't offer higher capacity batteries:

This set comes with 1.3Ah batteries, not the 'usual' 2.0Ah DeWalt batteries.

With that said, I have some B&D tools with 1.3Ah batteries and they are adequate for small jobs around the house. My main tools are 20V DeWalt and the 2.0Ah batteries are ideal for most things, though I use a 9Ah battery for my impact wrench and chainsaw.

Do keep in mind that having two smaller batteries rather than one big battery is often an advantage.

You can charge one as you use the other, and when one inevitably fails, you'll still have one working while you get a replacement.

That said, the smaller batteries have to be able to run the equipment you're using effectively.

Anyone have any input on what the various hammer drills are capable of or what they should probably be used for?

I think I paid $129.99 on Boxing day from CT. I could be wrong and there could have been just one battery to boot. But I am 60% sure it came with 2 batteries also.
