    It might take a full 24 hours for it to be fully charged. If it has a quick charger it will take 3 hours.

    I don’t want to alarm you but I used to work at a tool department and when the light didn’t come on it usually meant that the drill was dead. 7.2 is rather weak now and it sounds like a very old model.

    Yes, you can screw a screw into the wall and then tap the anchor in through the hole. Then insert the screw into the anchor. Plastic anchors are very cheaply made and are not recommended for anything that carry weight. They are notorious for pulling out of the wall and twisting when you try to screw in a screw. I recommend an EZ Anchor if you will be anchoring only into Sheetrock.

    If there’s a stud behind the mounting area, then you won’t need any anchors, just screw directly into the stud (might need a drill for this step). EZ Anchors can be found at any hardware, home improvement or
    Walmart store and are extremely easy to use. They’re also very strong. They screw directly into the the sheetrock like a screw, but they have a hole in the middle for the screw. They come in plastic and aluminum, I recommend aluminum. See the link below. Good luck!

    Search online or on Amazon.com for a pack of twist bits for drilling holes – from 1/16th to 3/8″ – and this comes in a tough little box which you can have forever.

    For drilling bigger holes, I use a lot of “spade” bits – or “speed bores” – you can also get a bunch of different sizes of these at once. Then you can drill holes from 3/8″ to 1 1/2″.

    Then for screwing in screws, go to a lumber store and get yourself a magnetic bit holder – it’s a magnetic tip for your drill – and you can stick different screw driver bits into that – you can get Phillips or torque or square drive or traditional screw drives. The best brand I’ve seen is Apex – I use these things all the time since carpentry is my business.

    One good place to get this stuff is a second hand store – sometimes there’s piles of them, and you dig through and get a bunch of bits really cheap.

    A good drill is something which will be handy for the rest of your life if you only use it from time to time.
