Fast, Easy Adjustments with Smart Select
Unlike most drills, Black & Decker Smart Select Drills make it easy to set your drill up correctly for specific jobs. Instead of having to guess which clutch, speed, and torque settings are right for a task, you simply pick the icon that most accurately represents that job you're taking on. Correctly setting your drill reduces the possibility of stripping a screw head, snapping a screw off, or driving too far into your work surface.

The 11 easy-to-read project icons let you account for driving small and large screws, drilling narrow and wide holes, and working with wood, metal, or plastic. Even experienced craftsmen are likely to enjoy the way this eliminates the trial and error process, which can result in damaing your work surface or project materials. This improved functionality is sure to be a bonus, whether you're building a doghouse, hanging bookshelves, or assembling custom furniture.

Cordless Design that's Comfortable to Grip
A rechargeable 12-volt battery means that this drill has plenty of power to meet the needs of most homeowners. 12-volt drills are popular because they offer an excellent compromise between low-voltage drills (for example, 4V), which serve as power screwdrivers, and high voltage drills (for example, 24V), which can be heavy, cumbersome, and unnecessary for ordinary tasks. And since this drill is cordless, you won't have to worry about straying from your power source, tripping, or threading a cord into an awkward space for a quick repair.

Any tool that fits comfortably in your hand improves your ability to get jobs done quickly and precisely, and a well balanced drill is no exception. This Smart Select Drill offers a T-style handle placed near the middle of the drill for improved comfort. The T-style grip distributes the tool's weight so that it doesn't tip forward and work against you on the job. And a T-style grip reduces wrist strain, so you can work comfortably for longer.

Another great feature is the keyless chuck, which means you'll never have to worry about a misplaced chuck key bringing work to a standstill. It's easy to change bits quickly, and you're less likely to have to stop and take protective gloves off than you would be with a keyed system. You'll find the ease of this setup extra convenient if you need to switch between driving and drilling often or if you wear gloves on the job.

This Smart Select Drill is backed by a full two-year warranty.

What's in the Box
12V Drill/Driver, 12V battery, DC charger, and one double ended screwdriver bit tip.

I've had this drill for about a year, and have been very happy with it. The torque settings are pretty much standard, bit with images instead of numbers. It is powerful enough for everything I've thrown at it, seems well made and sturdy, and battery life is not bad at all. It has low speed low torque through low speed high/fixed torque and high speed for drilling. It fits comfortably in the hand. The drill bit holder on the side is pretty hard to get the bit out of, and I don't really use it as a result. Great tool, would buy again.

After using this for about seven years, my old version of this drill died only becuase I drilled through my wrought iron fence which meant constant use for several minutes at a time while I put about 50 lbs of weight on it in 100 degree F heat in the sun!! What I'm saying is this drill was not made for the conditions I put it in. I sill worked for a year, though it would smell burnt becuase I had cooked the insulation.

Don't let the other reviewers who claim the battery will die in a few years fool you. As with any NiCad battery, the key to long life is simple: fully charge, then disconnect from charger. Use the drill till the battery is dead or almost dead before recharge (don't use it shortly, then put it back on charger). If you do so, it will last almost indefinitely. My battery was good as new after 7 years.

I'm going to buy a new one now and will now use my corded drill for super heavy duty work. Use it for what it's made for - light to medium duty.

This is a great "lite" power tool to have around the house. For handling screws, drilling drywall, etc, it's excellent. The battery life is really good and the multitude of torque settings are useful. However, if you're wanting to do some serious home improvement projects, you should look elsewhere. I've found it to be a bit anemic when dealing with anything other than soft wood or drywall. If you need to drill metal, concrete, or tile this definitely will not get the job done adequately. I'm happy with it for what it is, which is a great tool for small jobs at a great price.

it's exactly what i was looking for and there are a couple of things other consumers need to know ... 1. the plug- in charger is small, so keep an eye out for it.....it plugs into the back of the handle...2. this drill has NO charger indicator anywhere on it, so when you plug it in, be mindful of how long you've had it on the charger and DO NOT keep it plugged in constantly or you'll kill the battery fast. other than that, it's very stable, very well constructed and it CAN handle some heavy work!! try 1/2 inch steel with a titanium drill bit...chewed thru it like a fat man at an all you can eat buffet!! i'm very happy with this product and for what it lacks in lights, it makes up for in raw power. all the of "scrunity reviews" that a lot of people have submitted thus far for what it can and can't do?...listen, i've been a tradesman for going on 20 years and have toolboxes taller than anyone reading this and i can assure you, if this product was worthless, i would most definitely give it the heave. if you're on a budget or are looking for a good replacement for your old beat up 12-volt, this is a great start and it WILL get the job done, but be mindful, EVERY portable tool has it's limitations..as does DeWalt, Makita, Craftsman, Snap-On, Mac or any other toolmaker's products. use the right tool for the right job and you'll be amazed at just how long it will last. overall, great product in an economical package! now go buy some stuff!!

If you are like me you are probably looking for a drill for hanging curtain rods and general use. Before buying this drill I was looking at a lot of different brands (milwaukee, dewalt). I understand that this drill is probably not cut out for hardcore construction use like other brands, but it performs the tasks I need it to. Many of the reviews I read about Black and Decker were not very promising, and after owning there electric screwdriver (total waste of money) I was nervous that I wasn't getting a quality product. I am happy with my purchase. I just spent today completing 5 or 6 tasks that I bought it for (shelves, assembly, etc). I give it a "novice drill users" thumbs up.

I got this drill from Lowe's for $35.00. It is about the same price at other places. Why is the advertisement here saying it is in the $150 range normally and that they are saving you $113? Also, you have to add in the (sometimes really steep) price of shipping! Something smells here!

I mistakenly bought the 12V drill thinking it was the 18V (which I already have at another house). That said, it's perfect for what I use if for - mostly just as a screw-gun. I wouldn't want it for more heavy-duty jobs but it's fine for putting up drywall and such. I gave it four stars because the drill itself is the charger. This means I can not charge the extra battery I bought while using the drill. You can only charge batteries that are on the drill. Stupid!

If I could go back in time and change exactly 2 things, i would kill Hitler, then wait 70 years and NOT buy this drill.

Works fine for light screw work and maybe drilling holes in paper, but this weak little b**** locks up the second you put any amount of torque to it. Won't even unscrew half the things I try to. Not even powerful enough to drill through my plastic garbage can! Do yourself a favor and go higher than 12V unless you're looking for something to use as a light hobby tool.

Oh, and its fastest setting it sloooowwwww.
