New batteries are just as expensive as the drill itself.
When I first bought it 3 years ago I was thrilled for the amount of money it was and how it chewed through my projects. BUT then the battery stopped working, either it was charging too long and ruined the battery, or it just does not last I am not sure but it no longer holds a charge very long. I tried using it today for a few small screws and it died right in the middle of my project, which now I know can be blamed on the NiCad Battery tech, which takes much to long to charge and does not hold a charge like Lithium batteries. It also takes all night to charge fully.
The battery drains faster when you are outside in cold weather, as in most NiCad sets, but after 3 years it's to be expected. If you want the battery to last, just run the drill completely dead, either by using, or leaving it off the charger, then charge it all night. It holds up better and longer. DO NOT leave it charging either, it won't hold the charge and it seems to deplete the battery rather than charge it. If you know you will need it, I suggest you charge it the night before you plan your project. But if you are like me who does not use it, then needs it right away without it being on a charge, it's not a good choice. Lithium holds battery charges for those who need it, then won't need the drill for a long time it's still charged.
It has more torque than the new lithium models from B&D. Which is surprising, seeing as they might want more power with more volts. My mother has had the 7.Read more ›
Over all it holds a good charge while performing doing projects, and when it's put up with a charge it seems to hold it very well. The chuck has been fine and I haven't had any issues with it or the other black & Decker tools I've owned. I would not recommend this as a professionals tool, but for the price it delivers very well used in the proper environment (around the house projects).
I lived in an apartment for most of this period, so the drill got very minimal use. I probably used the drill maybe a dozen times over the last three years, for simple indoor tasks.
Therefore the failure is not a function of usage, but rather appears to be a factor of time.
I would love to simply replace the battery, however the cost of battery replacement is very close to the price of a new drill and given the short life span on the batteries it is not a logical investment.
So the battery is going to the recycler and drill to the garbage.
Summary: This is a well functioning drill with a very poor lifetime. If you need a cheap drill and plan on upgrading in the future, this is a good buy. But if you want a reliable tool that will last, look elsewhere.
MY FAVORITE part of this particular Black and Decker drill: I do not need to remove the battery to charge. It comes with an adapter that plugs the drill directly into the wall. I have not ever needed to keep more than one battery charged. This is not that kind of drill. This is the perfect, cordless, household drill.
And affordable. I keep one, permanently in a trade show booth kit that travels around the country, making set ups less painful and quick.

Please note that it comes with a flathead and phillips head. So I would suggest trying those out for your needs before shelling out $10+ for a bunch of bits. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Disgruntled
