My experience with "compatible" and recelled packs I tried, was that

was worth doing the performance was not good enough.

Ni-Cads seemed to vary enormously in quality. With a drill, the ability to
deliver enough current. Does the same apply to Li-Ion?

Based on the tests I have seen, yup. There is also the difficulty that
even the well known makers of cells produce varieties with very
different max current outputs, so you need to choose something matched
to the cell characteristics of the OEM battery.
