li-ion batteries last up to 280%longer than conventional ones but if your just using it occasionally then its unimportant to you.The higher the amp the more power so middle of the range is 2.6ah 18v
Try Ebay they have some great bargins but go for a good make like makita,dewalt,bosch

Recently bought this Dewalt DCD785L from Toolfinder and couldn't fault it so far:

Great price too for such a solid bit of kit.
