  • Battery

The driver is user-friendly, with an easy-to-read fuel gauge for effortless battery management. But let’s set the truth straight. A lot of misleading adverts state that this impact driver features a 30 minute rapid battery charger, well this may not be the case, because it actually takes 52 minutes to charge each battery.

The charger included with this kit smells like burning power supply or other electronics after about 5-10 minutes of charging, and it also gets very hot. Remember, this is just the charger, not the battery. So if you are fortunate enough to have a 30 minute charger from other Bosch drills which use the same batteries (BC430), it would charge these batteries without heat, smoke, or any issue.

  • Verdict

This Bosch Impact Driver tool is easy to handle and fits into narrow spaces. Featuring a Durashield housing and an all-metal gearbox, this impact driver is able to withstand all the abuse found on professional job-sites and for this single reason, this tool is a good choice for the job-site projects or a professional grade fastening applications.
The manageability of the tool combined with its lighter weight and ergonomic easy-grip handle also makes it an ideal solution.

Pros

  • It was designed and tested to endure 25 drops from 12 feet high onto solid concrete. This is definitely not the standard-issue plastic covering found on other tools.

Cons

  • Center hex shaft is not straight and wobbles a little when pulling the trigger. Also when your hex bit is locked into place, it slides in and out about 1/4 of an inch. Not a big deal but that wouldn't be what you'd expect for paying a substantial amount of $.
  • The actual grip handle has much larger diameter then MAKITA & DEWALT because that's where the battery goes. On the average, the human palm measures 9.5 inches from pinky to thumb tips. Somebody with a smaller hand probably may not like this tool.
