Trade #12: DeWalt 20v Brushless power drill for iPad Mini 2

iPad Mini 2 with Lightning cable, charging brick, and two cases.

Fastest trade yet. Last Sunday I got a Facebook message as a response to the ad for the power drill I’d posted.

“Trade for iPad?”

Very interested. Tell me more.

“iPad mini 2. 16GB. Perfect condition. Not a scratch or dent, always in case.”

He sent some pictures and it looked sharp.

“I had someone picking it up today for $225,” he told me, “but I need a drill so this would be perfect!”

I had listed the drill for $150. This is exactly the way this project is designed to work.

He was free nearby in 2 hours. We met (surprise!) in a nearby strip mall.

We were both masked up and we kept our distance. I set the drill on the trunk of my car and brought the iPad over to the hood. I turned it on to find it had been factory reset and was booting up perfectly. He connected the drill’s battery and gave it a little zvvv-zvvv and we were happy. He’s building an at-home gym in his basement and is getting very tired of screwing things in by hand. This will help.

No muss, no fuss. We were probably in each other’s presence for a total of 3 1/2 minutes. It was easily the most efficient trade I’ve done yet, I don’t expect to beat it, and hey now I have a fresh, clean iPad to trade.
