The PS20-2A can drive 100 three-inch screws on a single battery charge. View larger.
12-Volt Litheon Batteries for Long-Lasting Power
The PS20-2A gets its power from Litheon batteries, the most advanced lithium-ion batteries available today. These batteries allow more battery charges and provide longer runtime with no memory effect--meaning the batteries don't need to be empty before charging. The batteries can also be taken out of the charger before charging is complete.

Other benefits include: significantly less self discharge; electronic cell protection that guards against overheating, overload, and deep discharge; and no loss of power from the first to last screw or hole. Best of all, these batteries will fully charge in 30 minutes and will be at 85% capacity in just 15 minutes.

Compact, Lightweight Design for Efficient, Fatigue-Free Work
Measuring only 6.0 by 6.5 inches--nearly half the size of stick drivers and other ultra-compact drills/drivers--and weighing just 1.8 pounds (with batteries), the PS20-2A packs a punch without taking up too much space. Its compact design makes it easier to drill straight holes at high and otherwise odd angles, allowing you to accomplish a day's worth of professional drill/driving tasks without excessive fatigue. You can also carry the tool in your pocket, hang it on your tool belt, or keep it in a nail pouch when you're climbing ladders or moving from task to task.

High Torque and Fast Speeds for Quick, Reliable Results
This powerful tool provides over 100 in./lbs. of torque--25% more torque than comparable models--for ultra-efficient driving and drilling. It drives 100 three-inch screws (per battery charge) and drill holes up to 1/2-inch in diameter. The PS20-2A also offers variable speeds up to 500 RPM--25% more speed for fast, reliable results.

10+1 Clutch with Max Setting for Improved Control
The 10+1 clutch system, similar to that of standard drills/drivers, offers 10 drives and one "Max" drill setting for control and precision, while eliminating over-torque in soft-base materials. The Max setting also allows for pilot and other small bore holes. For added convenience, the 10+1 controls are conveniently located at the front of the drill, so it's a snap to make quick adjustments.

Ergonomics and Soft Grips for Long-Term Comfort
Besides its light weight, the PS20-2A boasts great ergonomics and soft grips to deliver comfort over extended periods, giving you the freedom to work all day without over-taxing your wrists and hands. And it's easy to keep bits handy, thanks to the tool's "Clic-Change" bit holder, which also makes 1/4-inch hex shank bit changes quick and easy. Additionally, the chuck is magnetized to secure locking bits.

Variable-Speed Trigger and Forward/Reverse Button for Precision and Versatility
The PS20-2A drills up to 3/8 inch in wood and 1/4 inch in steel. To help ensure high-quality results, the variable-speed trigger provides sensitivity and control for optimum precision. And for added versatility, there's a forward/reverse button for driving or removing screws.

User-Friendly and Durable for Hassle-Free Drilling and Driving
A motor brake features an improved design for serial screwing, while a metal clutch ring has a robust design for long-term durability. There's also an LED to illuminate dark or enclosed areas while you work.

ProVantage Guarantee
The PS20-2A comes with the ProVantage three-year protection plan, which guarantees two years of battery protection and one year of tool protection. Under this plan, you can receive two years of free battery replacements, tool replacement for one year, and a free tool repair package for the second and third years.

What's in the Box
Pocket Driver with two 12-volt batteries, 30-minute charger, soft carrying case, and two 1.5-inch bits.

I bought this as a gift for my Dad for Christmas. I already own (and love) its main competitor, Milwaukee's 12v driver so I decided to do a quick side-by-side comparison. In terms of look, size, and performance, the two tools are about as equal as can be. The Milwaukee did seem to drive the 3" screws slightly faster but it was a very small difference. Overall, the two were basically equal in everything except one factor - the mechanism for changing bits. On the Bosch, you pull the chuck straight out to release the bit, but you need to continue holding it out to insert the new bit (basically need two hands). On the Milwaukee, you pull out the chuck and it locks into the open position, then you insert the new bit and it locks into place (only need one hand to do a bit change). For this reason alone, I would rate the Milwaukee just ahead of the Bosch. In any case, I would be thrilled with either.

As everyone else has noted, this is a really wonderful tool: light, powerful, and well balanced. This single tool now replaces BOTH my heavyweight DeWalt for big jobs, AND a nimble little Skil 2336-02 iXO 3.6-Volt for tight spaces. [The latter duo have gone to a vacation home.]

That said, the Bosch comes with an annoyingly cheesy cloth case, with an equally annoying Velcro strap inside to secure the driver. But most annoying of all is that it comes with essentially NO BITS.

I naturally looked for a companion set of Bosch bits and rapidly discovered from the valuable Amazon reviews [for which this review is karmic payback] that the quick-change chuck in the "Bosch CC2130 Clic-Change 27-Piece Drilling and Driving Set" DOES NOT FIT the PS20 series!

SOLUTION: For one third the price of the Bosch set, I eventually found the Titan 16048 Quick-Disconnect 48 Piece Drilling and Driving Set in Plastic Case which DOES fit and works very well, and also has about double the number of bits as the Bosch set. I now leave the Titan quick-change chuck permanently installed, and can then pop bits in and out with one hand.

This Titan set really is the perfect (and remarkably cheap) companion to the PS20-2A.

Just bought the 12v drill/driver made by Bosch. I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't buy it from Amazon because I found it cheaper on E... Only reason is I'm such a tightwad I make every penny squeek when I'm buying tools. That's why I don't buy cheap tools and this certainly ain't cheap.

I've been using it since I got it and it's a dream tool. I drill with #55 size bits and all my other drills were so heavy I'd break a bit every 7th or 8th hole. Still on the same bit since I switched to the PS20-2A.

The batteries, (you get 2 with the PS20-2A), charge in about 30 minutes and seem to last forever. I tried wearing one down in the first 3 hours of intermittent drilling and couldn't do it.

The only thing I'd comment negatively about is that stupid little super-brite LED they put on the drill. I guess it's supposed to illuminate the drill tip at the point of contact but it only lights up the area below the actual area you need lighted. I sent a note to Bosch about this flaw so maybe they'll fix it. Well, I can dream can't I?

Finally, If you need a great little Drill/driver that'll become a star of your toolbox or belt this is the one. I don't gush unless it's very special but this tool is super special. Best Regards

I purchased this product to replace a compact B&D compact drill driver. The manufacturer's literature says this will drive 100 3 inch screws on one battery so since I was in the process of building a deck, I decided to put this claim to the test. Before attempting to drive a 2 3/4" deck screw, I pre-drilled through the deck board and into the joist. After attempting to drive one screw at the highest torque setting, I put this tool away. It was very ineffective for this purpose, unable to drive the screw all the way. For comparison, I used an old DeWalt 12v driver, which did drive the deck screw all the way. At another point, while replacing damaged drywall, I again tried to use the Bosch. While somewhat more effective, it still labored to drive the screw into the stud, but did manage to sink the head. It appears that the best use for the Bosch is for light duty in close quarters where a full size drill would be unable to reach. Given the price of $99, it would appear there are better options out there. Anyone looking to buy this as their primary drill should look elsewhere.

Bosh advertises this as a driver and that's how I primarily use it, but I have used it as a drill as well.
Since this is a cordless driver, it is relatively slow in the RPM department, I think it maxes out at 300RPM but the control you have over the speed is very, very fine. At the slightest trigger pull the front light comes on, a little more and the chuck creeps around, maybe 5 RPM. Pull the trigger fully and the motor spins up almost instantly to full speed.
But the neat part is the brake... from any speed, let go of the trigger completely and the chuck comes to a complete stop, so quickly that there is a recoil from full speed. When you're driving a screw and the clutch slips, and you release the trigger, the chuck just stops spinning, no extra force is put in to the screw.
I've used this driver for several years as my daily driver while working on computers. I've also used it for automotive and house work as well as tear-down and rebuilding of horse stalls.
Don't let the small size of the driver fool you, this a primary tool! At the lower clutch settings you can safely drive metal screws in to plastic, or plastic screws in to anything. At the MAX setting, you can drive long screws in to hardwood.
Will other drivers out-drive it? Yes. But this tool comes with two batteries, they charge faster than you can drain them and you can literally use it all day without more than a few seconds downtime per battery change every few hours.
Is it tough? My driver has been in the heat, cold, damp, dust and dropped I can't tell you how many times and it still works like new.
I do wish the LED was angled a little bit toward the chuck, in the straight-ahead alignment it has the light falls just below the work point.
