5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely engineered tool, February 3, 2010
This review is from: Bosch PS10-2A 12-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Driver Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)
To me what says a lot is that when Bosch first introduced this line of sub-compact tools, they correctly labeled them as 10.8 volt. When their competitors saw what success Bosch was having with the line, they copied them, and came out with their own versions. The competition called them 12 volt, which as I've learned is not the rms voltage, but is a marketing gimick. I understand why Bosch relabeled their line the same way, and I guess you're being pretty successful when your competitors copy your products.

I've had this particular model for 2 years and have come to really like it. The shape with the rotating head is, or was unique until others started copying that too. 600 rpm is fast for a 1 speed and it really has good power for the size. The trigger took a little getting used to being that it turns on an instant after you hit it, but it's not a 1/2 second as another reviewer said, and it varies the speed quite well unlike said reviewer found. He may have gotten a defective unit.

I really like the clutch, an electronic rather than mechanical one. I find it very accurate and easy to work with and find that I rarely use it in the "drill' position. But on a recent occasion I did, and this drill saved me from having to go out and find a 5 foot flexible bit, which would have cost me $40+.

I was in a basement needing to drill a hole through the top plate into a wall so I could install a thermostat. It was double plated(2 2x6) and my cordless drill wouldn't fit in the space between the floor jousts, so my only other option was get a flexible bit and drill up from the hole I'd cut in the drywall. Then I thought of the PS10 with a spade bit. I used a 1/2 inch bit and it took a while but the drill performed well, though I didn't let it heat up. Yet another handy application.

Though excellent, it's not perfect. I would still prefer a 2 speed gear box, but other than that, it's pretty trick.

RMS?
Huh? How to you determine the root mean square voltage in a direct current circuit?
