Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Well built simplicity. Excellent battery life.
I tried to get bits to fall off this holder by violently shaking the tool and was rarely successful.
The batteries are spring loaded which provides a tight positive lock with no play.
The tool employs the latest battery platform for Li-ion.
The new use of Lithium Ion technology gives you good recharge within 20 minutes.

What reviewers didn't like

Pricey with no frills
This tool does not feel compact and I was unimpressed with the lumen output from the on board LED light.
But all this torque and good looks comes at a steeper price than the existing 18V line up.
High charge consuming battery
Battery gauge is not so good.
