Apparently you can get 4 miles out of one cordless drill’s charge (190lbs man). I guess if you go a little less than 2 miles, you can use the drill for a little bit when you get there, and still have enough to get back home.

A new idea that is amazing. I bet it won’t be long before someone comes up with a drill powered bicycle.

Update….Well, I just looked at their website and they do have a drill powered bicycle.
