A little side project. I picked up this 12v drill at Harbor Freight a few months ago for something like $15 during a sale. I thought, it’s inexpensive. If I drop it in the mud and kill it I’m not out much. But for $15 you don’t get that great of a battery. It lasts about 10 minutes if I’m lucky. And only holds a charge for a day or two.
But I bought it with a plan in mind. I could have gotten one with a higher voltage battery but I wanted the 12v for a reason. I figured I could just attach a wire to the battery clips and then to the Jeep battery and I’ve got a drill that will last all day! Read on.
