- Charge Time
The primary benefit of buying this drill is the value you’re getting. For just under $60 (Amazon) you are getting not just a drill, but 20 accessories (screwdriver and drill bits). This will save you some money and time. The extra drill bits really do come in handy. The 18V will be more than enough to do most jobs around the house. It also holds a charge for quite some time. The compact design also makes it easier to handle. You know with Black & Decker that you are getting quality.
This drill is a good choice if you are looking to do odd jobs around the house and some amateur projects. For the money, you probably won’t find a better cordless drill.
- No Charge Level Indicator
For a compact drill, it’s a bit heavier than you would expect especially if you use for a good period of time. Also, lacking is a charge indicator to let you know that it’s charging and that’s done charging. Your best bet is just to plug it in the night before you use it. Also, another complaint is that the battery has to be charged while in the drill. So you won’t be able to charge another battery while working on a project.
This does plenty of work around the house. The 18V motor has all the torque I need for most jobs. And, as an added convenience, the batteries are interchangeable with batteries in other B&D tool suite, like their lawn trimmer. I haven’t needed the extra batteries and charger yet, but I’m sure some job will come up where they’re more than handy. My only complaint, a minor one, is that the charger doesn’t let you know when the battery is full. I know the extra indicator would have added a little to the cost, but would have been a big improvement.
It doesn’t provide too much torgue for basic home drilling needs; somewhat disappointed with this drill’s power. The carrying bag is nice. – David G. Kerr
I was really surprised at how much power this little drill has. Absolutely worth the money. Holds a charge well, easy to handle, an all around good tool to have. – D. Gurley
