Sadly not had any experience with the Feins, but if you're up in that price
bracket then have a look at Milwaukee drills.
I have an Atlas Copco, which is their parent company & identical to the
equivalent Milwaukee model, and I love it. Built to last.

That's right. Top quality NiMh sub C's can now do 3300mA/h and pretty
good discharge urrents - 60-70A. Top line Nicad is 2600mA/h IFRC. But
those will do over 150A for *very* short bursts...
There is a move to phase out Nicads in favour of NiMh because of cadmium
recycling problems. It is likley that most new tools will come equipped
They do suffer from shorter lifetimes and somewhat greater propensity to
go flat if left idle.
I have experience of a Fein *corded* screwdrivers. This is like a
drill, only slower, and has a clutch the engages when you push it in.
Power is no problem, plenty more at the other end of the cord. The
things are bulletproof, having lasted more than a decade of daily use,
dropping, and kicking around in the back of the van at a
cabinetmakers. If the quality of these extends to their other
products, go for it.
You already know about the price, right?
