Bosch has done it again with an exceptionable cordless drill here. More of what you have come to expect from Bosch and then some the Bosch DDB180-02 is an excellent choice for your 3/8 inch cordless drill needs, this drill packs a lot of power into a perfectly ergonomically designed drill. I found it very light and comfortable to work with and as well the battery life seems to be be better than most in my opinion. Check out what the trusted site Amazon.com has to say about this cordless drill kit…

Offering an exceptionally compact and lightweight design, the durable, powerful Bosch DDB180-02 18-volt 3/8-inch cordless drill/driver gives you high-quality results on the job while helping you work for hours with less fatigue. Featuring Durashield housing to guard against wear and tear, the DDB180-02 utilizes an 18-volt lithium-ion battery that provides 35 percent more runtime and two times the recharge cycles of its competitors. It includes two Slim Pack 18-volt lithium-ion batteries, and the DDB180-02 can drive approximately 160 3-inch screws per battery charge.

Weighing just 3 pounds, the compact, lightweight DDB180-02 provides least amount of user fatigue.
The DDB180-02 Drill/Driver
At a Glance:
18-volt lithium-ion Slim Pack batteries for long-lasting performance.Up to 1,300 RPM and 400 inch/pounds of torque.15 clutch settings and a variable-speed trigger for versatility.3/8-inch keyless chuck.
Fast Speeds, High Torque, and Durable Construction for Reliable Results
The DDB180-02 works at two speeds–400 RPM and 1,300 RPM–and provides 400 inch/pounds of torque, which is enough to drive most common fasteners and drill bits. Durashield housing, unibody construction, and a steel-reinforced collar help you withstand real-world conditions, like temperature extremes, rain, dirt, debris, and drops.
The DDB180-02’s Durashield housing is constructed with ABS/Nylon composite, which makes the housing flexible and impenetrable. Unlike competitive tools, which use a conventional plastic housing, Durashield will not crack and can easily withstand 10-foot drops.
With 15 clutch settings and a variable-speed trigger, you’ll be able to match the best speed to the job and achieve more precise results. The unique Electronic Motor Protection (EMP) feature automatically switches the motor off when it stalls, helping to prevent it from burning out.
This drill/driver is wrapped in a soft-grip housing that fits comfortably in your hand for extended working time, and it includes an LED light to ensure visibility in low-lit areas. It comes with a 3/8-inch keyless chuck. The DDB180-02 is backed by a 1-year limited warranty.
Flexible Power System
Like all tools in Bosch’s 18-volt line, this drill/driver can be used with either a Slim Pack battery (two included) or a 2.6-Ah BAT618 Fat Pack. If you’re looking for a lighter-weight option, the Slim Pack is the perfect choice. If longer runtime is what you need, the Fat Pack will do the job.
What’s in the Box
Drill/driver; two 18-volt lithium-ion Slim Pack batteries (BAT607); 45-minute fast battery charger (BC630); double-sided Philips drive bit; storage clip; hard carrying case

Great for around the house

Like the reviewer that gave this drill 1 star, I also got this on the gold box deal. I had done a bunch of research and was actually about to buy a corded drill since they are cheaper and don’t have the environmental impact of the battery. The only thing they don’t have, which I think is an essential feature, is an adjustable clutch. Anyway, this seemed like a great deal on the gold box, so I pulled the trigger.

Light Weight, Well Balanced, and Ballsy!

I’m in the trades and a cordless drill is a staple, used nearly every day. I got this as a gift from my g/f who knew I was nursing beat batteries on my Panasonic 12V. On that drill, I’ll never buy it again due, and only due to the poorest battery life (on FOUR) batteries I have ever experienced over the “life” of the unit (I ALWAYS drain my ni-cads before recharge and my 7(?) y/o Dewalt’s batteries STILL work ok). Unacceptable for the price which was right around $200. Aside from that huge issue. the Panasonic was very nice.

Bosch makes quality products and this drill is no exception. I bought this thing on a daily deal for like $120 shipped and at that price it was a steal. This thing is super compact but packs a punch. It has a nice belt clip and a little LED on the front both of which I love. Definitely recommend!

This beautiful, functional, powerful, well-engineered, low-cost Cordless Drill/Driver Kit was much more than I expected — can’t find a single thing that I don’t like about this product and/or the purchase thereof !

Practical, a lot of torque and simple to use.

Surprising amount of torque, have to watch your wrist when using for something tight. Batteries last well and I also got this as on the reviews, I do not see many complaints about Bosch batteries, like I have seen with those of another top manufacturer. For me it was either Dewalt or Bosch, I chose this. Good product I think.

I bought this when it was $99. I use it all the time. It is light, which I like. Charges last a long time. It actually came charged, so I used it out of the box. Buy it when it is on sale. You will enjoy it even more!
