Product Description

Product Description

Includes 18V Compact 3/8 in. Cordless Drill Driver - DDB180-02, (2) 18V Lithium-Ion SlimPack Batteries - BAT609, 45-Minute Lithium-Ion Battery Fast Charger - BC630, Double-Sided Philips Drive Bit, Storage Clip, Hard Carrying Case


Offering an exceptionally compact and lightweight design, the durable, powerful Bosch DDB180-02 18-volt 3/8-inch cordless drill/driver gives you high-quality results on the job while helping you work for hours with less fatigue. Featuring Durashield housing to guard against wear and tear, the DDB180-02 utilizes an 18-volt lithium-ion battery that provides 35 percent more runtime and two times the recharge cycles of its competitors. It includes two Slim Pack 18-volt lithium-ion batteries, and the DDB180-02 can drive approximately 160 3-inch screws per battery charge.

Bosch DDB180-02
Weighing just 3 pounds, the compact, lightweight DDB180-02 provides least amount of user fatigue.


Flexible Power System
The DDB180-02 Drill/Driver
At a Glance:

  • 18-volt lithium-ion Slim Pack batteries for long-lasting performance.
  • Up to 1,300 RPM and 400 inch/pounds of torque.
  • 15 clutch settings and a variable-speed trigger for versatility.
  • 3/8-inch keyless chuck.

Fast Speeds, High Torque, and Durable Construction for Reliable Results

The DDB180-02 works at two speeds--400 RPM and 1,300 RPM--and provides 400 inch/pounds of torque, which is enough to drive most common fasteners and drill bits. Durashield housing, unibody construction, and a steel-reinforced collar help you withstand real-world conditions, like temperature extremes, rain, dirt, debris, and drops.

The DDB180-02's Durashield housing is constructed with ABS/Nylon composite, which makes the housing flexible and impenetrable. Unlike competitive tools, which use a conventional plastic housing, Durashield will not crack and can easily withstand 10-foot drops.

With 15 clutch settings and a variable-speed trigger, you'll be able to match the best speed to the job and achieve more precise results. The unique Electronic Motor Protection (EMP) feature automatically switches the motor off when it stalls, helping to prevent it from burning out.

This drill/driver is wrapped in a soft-grip housing that fits comfortably in your hand for extended working time, and it includes an LED light to ensure visibility in low-lit areas. It comes with a 3/8-inch keyless chuck. The DDB180-02 is backed by a 1-year limited warranty.

Flexible Power System

Like all tools in Bosch's 18-volt line, this drill/driver can be used with either a Slim Pack battery (two included) or a 2.6-Ah BAT618 Fat Pack. If you're looking for a lighter-weight option, the Slim Pack is the perfect choice. If longer runtime is what you need, the Fat Pack will do the job.

What's in the Box

Drill/driver; two 18-volt lithium-ion Slim Pack batteries (BAT607); 45-minute fast battery charger (BC630); double-sided Philips drive bit; storage clip; hard carrying case

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for around the house August 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
Like the reviewer that gave this drill 1 star, I also got this on the gold box deal. I had done a bunch of research and was actually about to buy a corded drill since they are cheaper and don't have the environmental impact of the battery. The only thing they don't have, which I think is an essential feature, is an adjustable clutch. Anyway, this seemed like a great deal on the gold box, so I pulled the trigger.

Lightweight (with the slim battery)
Two batteries
Seems to hold a great charge (at this early writing of two weeks I haven't moved to the second battery yet)
Well balanced
Seems strong (haven't drilled any metal yet)
Great case - I was able to fit the drill, two batteries, the charger, two boxes of bits, my pack of spade bits, and some socket adapters, and there is still room for more odds and ends.

I noticed a slight wobble when using a spade bit with an extension. I did some checks with other long bits to make sure, and it's definitely the drill. It's really hardly noticeable and the spade bit with extension still drilled a clean hole in drywall. For everything I've done with shorter bits this problem did not show. I will update if it gets worse.

I'm mostly just an around the house DIY user and this drill has worked out great for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light Weight, Well Balanced, and Ballsy! August 3, 2011
I'm in the trades and a cordless drill is a staple, used nearly every day. I got this as a gift from my g/f who knew I was nursing beat batteries on my Panasonic 12V. On that drill, I'll never buy it again due, and only due to the poorest battery life (on FOUR) batteries I have ever experienced over the "life" of the unit (I ALWAYS drain my ni-cads before recharge and my 7(?) y/o Dewalt's batteries STILL work ok). Unacceptable for the price which was right around $200. Aside from that huge issue. the Panasonic was very nice.

All that said, this Bosch has impressed me from the start. Super light, good power, big case for all the peripherals, standard keyless chuck which is good for me as I swap a lot between drill bits and driver bits. This is not an impact drill which seem to be very popular, but I don't need that feature and, can do with out the additional NOISE those types make.

Only time will tell durability, which is the true test in my opinion. The high low speed switch on top is the only thing so far that seems as you have to help it to mesh sometimes but easy to get used to....Although I'm a sparky, I installed a water heater, two toilets and an ice maker over the weekend (light use of the drill) and am still on the first, factory charged battery. This is my first Lithium ION cordless tool......5 star, LOVE IT so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars best power I have used July 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
this BOSCH DDB180-02 is by far the most powerfull and longest lasting battery drill I have ever used !

I was in the maintenance field (HVAC certified design & repair) for the USPS from '78 until I retired
and have been given (main office would buy tech's tools) many different portable drills over the years
some lasted one day most did not make 3 months ... when I became supervisor I changed it to the
tech's buying what they wanted ... and I had the knowledge of how the fellows liked their picks.
when I needed a new unit (after retirement) I wanted a BOSCH due to people I knew liked their product.
I am more the well satisfied ..more like VERY pleased with everything about this unit. I am amazed
of how long a single charge lasts. and the weight and size are well designed.
I still do home maintence for family and friends as well as doing wood-working as a hobby.
I have not used any of my corded hand drills since I received my BOSCH.
I am now looking for other hand units that are on the 18 volt power pack system...
anyone who reads this opinion should just get a BOSCH and not look any farther !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Drill November 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
Bosch makes quality products and this drill is no exception. I bought this thing on a daily deal for like $120 shipped and at that price it was a steal. This thing is super compact but packs a punch. It has a nice belt clip and a little LED on the front both of which I love. Definitely recommend!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bosch by name... (and the missing specifications) June 1, 2014
By Graham
Verified Purchase
First here is the missing information.

The Drill/Driver is "Made in Malaysia"
The Batteries are 1.5 Amp-Hour and are made in Malaysia
The Battery Charger is made in China

The Drill/Driver weighs 3.1lb with battery attached.

First impression on opening the box was "wow - a Bosch for $99" - it LOOKS like a Bosch, however, other than "the look" it isn't the Bosch quality I am used to. You can feel it and hear it in use.

This is an example of "Form over Function" which is without doubt backwards for a power tool!

I have several older Bosch power tools - when they were made in Switzerland - those are my comparison.

Now if this were a lesser name, then I would say it was a pretty good Drill/Driver at a reasonable price.

The good :-
Light weight, powerful with plenty of battery life even at only 1.5 Amp/Hour,
the case is decent too - don't bother with the "L-Box" gimmick!
Oh and the Drill/Driver **looks** "nice"

The Bad :-
Poor quality - the chuck has "wobble" - quite a bit.
It isn't well balanced in the hand - it tends to fall backwards with a loose grip.
It sounds cheap compared to older Bosch tools (I suspect plastic gears rather than metal) which means it won't last long...
It isn't comfortable - I actually got a sore between thumb and forefinger after driving approx. 30 3" screws into Pine.
The batteries have no indication of charge - important with Li-Ion batteries
The light is annoying and useless - it should at least be switchable and point at the work (it lights an area below point of contact) - IF I keep it I will de-activate it somehow, at the moment I have a piece of tape over it.
