Bosch DDB181 Is Their New Powerful Ultra Compact Drill/Driver Hothttp://www.tool-rank.com/media/listing/photos/thumbnail/300x300s/3e/3d/35/Bosch-DDB181-Drill-80-1413964437.jpg
I have said in the past that you don’t always need to own the most powerful tool; there are more aspects of the tool to consider, like weight or price. So if size or weight are more important, Bosch has the tool for you. They say their DDB181 packs a big punch, yet while 18V, it is the size of a 12V Drill.
12V tools are great when you need to travel light, but if you already have 18V tools it becomes inconvenient to have to carry around two different battery types and two different chargers. The Bosch DDB181 is compact at only 7.1-inches long and it weighs only three pounds with a BAT611 1.5Ah battery installed. But because it runs on 18V it offers more torque (350 in. lbs.) and has features like a larger ½-inch chuck.
"This is the only 18V solution for users in need of an ultra-compact 1/2-inch drill driver who want to maintain their 18V system," said Bohn. "The DDB181 comes with a 1.5Ah battery, but as part of the Flexible Power System, also works with any Bosch 18V lithium-ion battery that many users may already have as part of their cordless system."
