This portable drill runs on a highly-efficient 18-volt lithium-ion battery. It also comes with an extra battery and a charger. The charger does its job very quickly, and a totally dead battery regains its full power in about one hour. This means that batteries can be quickly exchanged, and your drill will always be ready and in working condition. By the time your battery starts running low, the other one will be already charged. Besides, lithium batteries can be recharged over and over again hundreds of times.

This model also comes with a whole kit of drill bits and other accessories, and they are in the same case as the drill itself, which greatly simplifies storage, transportation and use.

As the drill has an adjustable chuck, so bits can be installed and removed in seconds.

The model has a comfortable, ergonomic shape and handle, and has a light weight of only 1.7 kg.

The drill has two speeds - one is faster and has less torque, while the other one is slow and powerful. This way it can be used to quickly finish small lightweight tasks, such as installing screws into pre-drilled holes, and at the same time be able to take on the toughest challenge, such as making holes in brick. The torque also can be changed by simply adjusting the clutch.

Pros:

  • Great quality for the price
  • Comes with many useful accessories
  • Versatile

Cons:

  • Does not have a light

Now as you are not limited by the cord length, you can easily and conveniently access the most difficult spots.

This tool has three working modes - drilling, hammering, or impact drilling. The maximum hammer blow rate is 4000 per minute, and the highest rotation speed is 1100 RPM.

This model is amazingly powerful for a battery-fed tool. Nothing will stop it, and it will easily go through wood, steel, brick or concrete. It can also be used as an ordinary household drill for small tasks, although some people say that it is just too large and powerful for that.

The drill is equipped with many safety technologies that limit torque and prevent overheating. It also has a bright LED light to illuminate whatever you are working on.

This corded model can be used only if an electric outlet or power cord is in close proximity. 

However, this limitation is compensated by its extremely powerful motor. Each impact when hammering has an energy of 1.7 joules, and the rate is 5800 blows per minute, which makes it possible to quickly drill holes in steel, concrete, and even go through stone like a hot knife through butter. But it is not just a powerhouse for heavy-duty jobs - it can also be used in woodworking and for screw driving.

The tool can be used for drilling, hammering, or both at the same time.

The power and speed of the drill can easily be controlled with the trigger, so if you are doing a lightweight task, it is recommended to squeeze the trigger as lightly as possible.

The relatively short length and light weight combined with the second handle make the tool very controllable and maneuverable. The simple controls make the drill very easy to use, and are also located close to the trigger to be easily accessed with one finger.

The chuck is adjustable to accept a wide variety of bits, whether they are for drilling or driving screws.

Pros:

  • Controllability
  • Power
  • Multifunctionality

Cons:

  • Needs an electric outlet

This model will easily deal with any hard material, whether it is wood, concrete, ceramic or steel.

This model weighs surprisingly little for such a powerful a hammerdrill - only 2.5 kilogramms. 

This makes it possible to use the drill one-handed. It also comes with a front handle that further improves the controllability, which can be installed either sideways or straight down.

This drill has one unique feature - the speed can be set and locked by using a knob, so that you will not have to constantly pull the trigger. This way you can work much quicker.

Pros:

  • Powerful and light
  • Has many functions
  • Ergonomic and comfortable
