Customer Reviews

Very lightweight and versatile.
Vincent
You have to buy another drill just to get the battery because the whole drill is cheaper than just the battery.

Every time I go to use it the battery will not hold it's charge.

I have a 14 volt Black and Decker already and this one feels like it is more powerful than that one. From what I can tell already, it is great for most jobs. I've only had a chance to use it for a week now, but I love it. I like the smaller size in the 9.6V version. The charger for it is one of those tiny compact ones, not the usual giant one that they come with. I think my cell phone has a larger charger.

So, I have owned this drill for almost three years now. It is great, fast powerful reliable lightweight etc etc. I have nothing but praise and recommend it 100%.

I bought a smaller, lighter and newer one (B&D also), with a 12V (max) battery and it is quite nice but not as fast and strong as this one so I'm returning it. I like this one.

Why 4 stars? My battery does not hold a charge anymore and it is awfully expensive. In fact, I am buying ANOTHER drill just for the battery. See, the battery is almost $40 and this is $26. So, not sure what I will do with the extra battery-less drill :p

Something else, I was far from a heavy user, in fact very light usage so I will not vouch for the battery itself, but this drill rocks.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Brett on June 3, 2012
Pros: This drill packs far more power than I imagined for the price. I use it daily to power a bur grinder that I originally had to run off a corded power drill, my 4.9v drill that I replaced with a 10v pack couldn't do the job.
Solidly built, key-less chuck works great and fits my 3/8 bits.

Cons: Squeals at anything but full power. This is a design issue where the pulse width modulator works in the audible range, giving a high pitch noise when operated under low speed.
Battery pack is Ni-Cad instead of newer Lithium Ion, so while it works great for daily use, it's batteries are only rated at 1/3 the run time of more expensive but comparable voltage packs/drills.

Other: The 95% plastic construction, toy-like looks is something not conveyed in the pictures. Not to say it isn't solidly built, but as far as appearances and feel go it is clear that this is a lower end drill.

This is an OK drill for light work. However, you can't find slide-in batteries for it. You have to buy another drill just to get the battery because the whole drill is cheaper than just the battery. I now have 2 of them.

Just received mine. Unfortunately it isn't holding any power in the battery the most it gets its like 10 seconds for a few hours charge and that's it. I had one like this before and it was a solid performer but their new battery batch might be holding sand to keep the charge.

Can't hold a charge and is by far the weakest drill I have ever used. Even when I left it to charge overnight it would only work for about 1 min before it died out. Worthless!
