    Bought this item at a local Menard's on black friday 2014 for $27. Could not believe my eyes when I saw the price. I've been looking for a smaller drill than my current dewalt (sucks to lug that thing around). This drill is perfect for quick jobs and fits nicely in my 13" tool bag.

    Lithium Ion battery. Small and compact. Long battery life. Keyless chuck (what drill isn't nowadays). Great tool for the price.


    Battery does not detach. No LED light function.

    Gets the Job Done
    We've owned this product for over a year now and it works beautifully with any home project we've got.

    Easy to install screw bits, easy to charge, stays charged for long periods of time, very user-friendly

    toy grade piece of junk broke after just over 1 month
    Very poor quality, won't hold a charge after just one month, but can't return it because it's past 30 days. Costs more to ship to B&D than it's worth.

    light, easy to use, small.


    toy grade, piece of junk, broke after 1 month

    This drill is perfect for light jobs and projects. It fits comfortable in the hands while using it. Very lightweight. My biggest disappointment was when I opened it and found out the battery was built in to the drill. What happens then when the battery is completely DEAD? It would have been perfect and NICE to be able to swap batteries or replace them. This is a DISPOSABLE DRILL which is NOT COOL at all.

    GREAT DESIGN (*except for the BUILT IN BATTERY)very compact and powerful for it's size.


    No Battery Replacement! The Drill is disposable.

    The intitial charge that lasted a full week of frequent use. The next charge afterwards never held. The unit gains a full charge, but immediately upon attempting to use the drill, the charge is immediately depleted. Great price, but now I realize why? This is the first time I was ever disappointed by a Black & Decker product.

    I liked the price, size, and power. For what I needed it for it was a tremendous value.


    Its inability to maintain a charge.

    A great little drill !
    This drill is balanced and fits my hand like a glove. Finaly the 7.2 volt unit that we all loved is with clutch and Lithium Ion.

    It filts like a glove and has great balance. The clutch is nice and tight with positive clicks. The battery gives this tool a feeling of availability.


    I really don't have any negative feedback because it is what it is, a great little drill. The price that comes with this product leaves little room for much more. That being said, I would pay 5 or 10 more dollars for variable speed and a little carrying bag with some accessories. But that is not a con, rather a price consideration.

    Nice little Drill
    I got this drill at Walmart as well on sale for $20. Great price for a Lithium drill. Its a nice compact size and works well in my shop. I have drills from 3.6 to 19.2v and feel this one will work well for drilling and driving in my wood projects.

    Nice size, stands on its own, decent clutch and chuck.


    No work light, single speed. But for $20.......... well worth it!

    Nice compact drill driver
    Purchased on sale for $20 at Walmart cause I needed a small compact drill driver for small jobs around the house. I wanted something with a longer battery life than my older cordless drill which is much larger and heavier than this unit. I have been using this new drill for light drilling and projects requiring a screwdriver. It has worked like a charm thus far, the keyless chuck is very handy! The compactness and light weight are also a big plus! It has a reverse as well which helps when you need to back out a screw or drill bit. If you want a small, light weight drill driver for projects around the house then this might just be the ticket!

    battery life: when in storage and during use keyless chuck lightweight compact balance price $$$


    Would be nice if it was variable or 2 speed, but this is not a big deal for what I am using it for currently. Still gets 5 stars from me
