Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Perfect for light-duty jobs
This drill is suitable for working with soft materials, such as plastics, wood, and drywall. It is powerful enough to do light-duty drilling and screwdriving.
Pro Lightweight and compact
Being only 2.5" wide and weighing only about 2.14 pounds, it's perfectly suitable to be used single-handedly. The small form factor makes it perfect for working in tight and cramped spaces, where larger drills would simply not fit.
Pro Decent power efficiency
The 2.0 Amp-hour battery performs surprisingly well when the drill is used for its intended purposes (small-sized jobs). A field test conducted by Pro Tools Review online magazine has shown that a single charge is enough to drive 51 three-inch screws.
Con Bad for heavy-duty use
As the small ⅜" chuck and 265 inch-pound torque suggest, this tool is suitable only for light applications. Anything that requires high speeds and huge torque, like concrete drilling, is out of the question.
Con Poor chuck design
The design of this tool’s chuck is far from being ideal. First of all, at the size of only ⅜", it's simply small. Additionally, the Bosch's keyless chucks are very well known for being loose. This drill is not an exception as the chuck does not have any self-tightening mechanism. Every time the drill stops, the chuck untightens a little.
