While preparing to use this piece for our annual testing, our team was quite sceptical of its performance, given the low price that is uncharacteristic for the best cordless drills around. Even with the rave reviews from craftsmen worldwide, we had to check it for ourselves and we can’t be more surprised, honestly.

You will simply adore the lengths Black and Decker cordless drills go to please their customers. They’ve added a storage bag and a stud sensor to go along with the usual heads and power bits, saving you a lot of money, especially if you aren’t a wealthy professional.
The performance has completely lived up to the hype, backed by a reliable and still powerful 18V lithium-ion battery. As we’ve tested it on many materials, the conclusion is that it’s very versatile and able to stand the pressure many of the other best cordless drills are unable to.
