  1. Good Compact Drill/Driver Review by WoodshedRob

    Seem like a good well made driver/drill that has plently of torque and does what it claims. Light is nice when working in dimmly lit areas such as when installing drawer glides inside a cabinet. The smaller size allow one to get in places my full size drill can't. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  2. Just right for home projects Review by hockeynut

    I got this as part of a combo kit with the 25618 impact driver. It is a little lighter than the 1/2" drill and a little smaller. I really appreciate the lighter more compact model. It has every bit as much torque as I would ever need for home projects, building shelves, adding network wiring, etc. It replaces a 3/8 corded drill, and it is wonderful to be free of the cord, and have the lighter weight. Have used it all week with the slim pack battery and not needed a recharge. I'm completely happy with this drill and would enthusiastically recommend it. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  3. Excellent Buy Review by driller

    I've had this drill for about one year. I find it to be a very good product. Bought it on sale and received a free battery with a mail-in offer along with the two batteries that came with it. Lots of torque, batteries hold charge for a long time and it is nice and light. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  4. Great cordless drill Review by Bobby23227

    This is my second cordless drill. My first was purchased 17 years ago and was made by another respected manufacture. No complaints with the old drill. I had the battery pack rebuilt years ago and it gave me good service. Battery packs needed replacing again.
    So, it was time for a new drill and I wanted a lithium Ion battery. After searching and reading reviews this drill met the qualifications. I use it at my business and at home. I'm a capable handyman and get asked to help with many projects. A handyman has to have a good cordless drill. This Bosch drill is great. It fits my hand well and has good balance. Batteries and charger are way better than the old. This drill has power to drive 4" screws. Love the light with my sight just not as good as it once was.
    This drill/ driver was an excellent choice for this handyman. I highly recommend. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  5. Compact, light weight, pwerful Review by Zan2

    The handiest, most ergonomic cordless drill I've ever used.
    More than enough power for most jobs and very good battery life. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  6. Investment in Performance Review by rigger71

    After having gone through about half a dozen inexpensive cordless 3/8" drills that were underpowered and had short battery life I decided to buy a more powerful, durable and dependable drill. I decided on the Bosch DDB180-02 based on my favorable opinion of Bosch tools, along with the following features:
    ~ compact Lithium-Ion batteries
    ~ two speeds
    ~ fast charger
    ~ carrying case with extra room for drill/driver bits
    ~ light weight and compact size
    ~ reasonable price

    I have already used this drill on several tough jobs and I'm really pleased with its performance. No more "false economy" inexpensive drills for me! (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  7. i only miss one thing on my old yellow drill Review by br

    my old drill needed new ni-cad batteries. i almost bought new batteries for it, but i saw how much they were and decided to wait. then i saw the free extra battery promo and decided to spend a little more and get a whole new drill.

    so far i can't complain about my purchase. it's lighter, stronger, and batteries seem to last longer than the old ones did when it was new.

    the only thing i miss is the dual bit holder on the top of the drill. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  8. No complaints with this tool Review by Muley

    I had an older and different brand drill that worked fine when the battery was charged but it pooped out right in the middle of a small job. This drill holds a charge, and when it does lose power, it charges fast. Another plus is that a fully charged battery stores in my truck tool box ready to go when I need it. I use this tool all the time and can't think of one thing I don't like about it. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  9. What a great tool. Review by Pete

    We have 2 of these drills on the job site. What a great tool. Hard working, durable and quick charging batteries make this tool a must.
    The batteries last a long time, even when screwing decking on. This is a very dependable, hard working drill. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  10. Excellent Drill For Price Review by SteffenCarpentry

    This is a great drill. Its nearly perfect. It comes with its own belt clip, which frees up my drill hook for other duties. The drawback of the clip is that it has to be screwed on/off after/before (respectively) you take it out or place it back into its hardcase. Another small drawback is that it does not have an onboard bit holder. Not a terrible necessity, but nice to have for some jobs. I've not had to use my drill for any large or tough projects yet, so I have yet to put it through any rigorous testing. But for the few small projects I've done recently, it has performed admirably.

  11. DDB180-02 Review by Gilles

    This is a great drill . The batteries last a long time. the best drill I ever bought. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  12. Solid Quality, Long life Review by Jason

    I have been using this drill in my shop for a few months now. Its seems to last an eternity and gives me all of the torque I need to get the job done. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  13. Good solid drill driver Review by papabus

    I've had this drill for six months and I have not found anything I don't like about it. I find it really comfortable in my hand and light. I can use it all day long without my wrist getting tired. The battery lasts a long time between charges depending on screw length and type of wood. This drill has the power to drive the three inch screws but I haven't had a project that required driving long screws all day long. I have used it driving quite a few 1 1/2 and 2 inch screws and it works great. The battery recharges in about an hour or so. I haven't noted the time but it's pretty fast. I've never had to wait anyway.
    I really like the drill!! I have several Bosch tools including a table saw and miter saw. I like Bosch tools and have no regrets. . (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  14. Better than the competition. Review by jmb6420

    I've had this tool for about a month now. It is just as powerful as it's full size competitors and has the compact size necessary to get into those tight spaces. I'm amazed at the battery life. It just keeps on working. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  15. Outstanding Drill Review by PeterR

    I have bought this drill to replace a 30-year old 9V NiCad cordless drill. So far I am more than impressed. Excellent ergonomic design, light weight, well balanced in your hand and very powerful. The charging is fast and the capacity very adequate for heavy use. I hope the new Lithium-Ion battery technology will last as long as the old NiCad. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  25. Great Drill/Driver Review by MarcM

    I bought this specifically to drive deck screws and lots of them. I have been very happy with the performance of the device and longevity of the battery. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  26. very nice Review by poppasmurf666

    I recently researched the compact drill options for a while before purchasing this drill-and am very happy with my purchase.  I was looking for a smaller drill that would fit all my needs for contracting (gutters, building furniture, installing doors), and general use.  It has great power, for its smaller size, feels solid, and durable.  I have used dewalt for all of my cordless tools, now I am switching over to the bosch li-on - and they have more than outperformed my dewalts.       Thanks for the great products (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  31. Newest Addition to Tool Family Review by Handyman50

    I have been watching for a new Bosch Drill and reading reviews. When this one was put on sale at a specil price I quick to jump on it. I have had a 24 volt set for about 10 years and the batteries are finally getting tired. I have a smaller 12volt driver but needed something in between. This has filled the spot wonderfully. It is balanced well and user friendly. Im am looking forward to it being as dependable as all my Bosch Tools. It has worked as I expected so far. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  33. Great drill Review by Tommy

    I've had my cordless drill since last September and it hasn't failed me yet. Plenty of power and less than an hour charge time are two very important and this drill has both. Two batteries and carry case are two really good features. Thank, Bosche (Posted on 9/26/2013)
