Lithium Ion Batteries

Black & Decker use some of the best grade Lithium Ion batteries within the DIY market. Each battery is tested for moisture ingress to ensure there is no chance of them short circuiting, as well as going through drop and vibration tests to ensure their durability. Contained within the battery pack are electronics that protect the battery against overcharging, as well preventing the battery from self discharging if it gets too hot or very cold. Black & Decker Lithium Ion batteries are designed to be ready to use when you are as there is no self discharge, they are also very light to ensure that you don‟t tire whilst completing that DIY Task.

Smaller and lighter

Smaller/Lighter -- Lithium Ion batteries have a higher energy density than NiCD / NIMH batteries. This means that equivalent capacity Lithium Ion batteries are smaller and lighter than conventional NiCD / NIMH batteries. So whether you are choosing cordless garden tools, power tools or cordless home cleaning our Lithium Ion batteries will guarantee that your tool is lighter and more compact ensuring there is less chance you will suffer from fatigue.

Slow discharge

Slow Discharge -- Lithium batteries have a very slow discharge rate compared to NiCD/Nimh batteries. After 90 days without use, a Lithium Ion battery will still retain up to 80% of its charge. This ensures that you will always be ready to complete that DIY task without having to wait for the battery to charge.

No memory effect

No Memory Effect -- When using NiCD/Nimh batteries it is recommended to fully discharge the battery prior to recharging them, otherwise the battery suffers from “memory effect” whereby it thinks it is fully charged when it isn’t. Lithium Ion batteries do not suffer from this, therefore can be recharged at any state of charge without the battery suffering from “memory effect”.

Cold temperature

Cold Temperature -- Nimh batteries will not work at temperatures approaching freezing. Black and Decker Lithium Ion batteries will work at these temperatures ensuring that you are able to get the “job” done.

Environmental

Environmental -- Lithium Ion batteries contain metal elements that are not as harmful to the environment compared to other battery technology. All Lithium Ion batteries can be recycled at your local recycling centre.

Size: 18V Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I completed a small job yesterday with this. It involved fitting a small aerial in our loft. Drilling into the wood to fit the aerial was easy. In our bedroom, because of the design, I also had to drill a small hole through the plaster ceiling in a built-in wardrobe, again no problem. However, the route into this wardrobe required a hole through a double skinned wall, both skins being brick.

The drill coped admirably with this hole, cutting through the bricks with little effort. I had to use first a standard bit and then switched to an extra long one to complete the task. My reasoning was that the short bit would be easier to control. For this job, I would normally have used a heavy duty mains drill from B&Q.

I also used a hole drill to make a hole in a header tank lid.

The drill is very light and small, far more suited to restricted access jobs than either my mains drill or than the Black and Decker cordless drill that this one is replacing, which was never very powerful and also had no hammer action.

A fair amount of sparks emerge from the rear of the drill. Do not use it where there is a fire hazard!

There is a plastic case to house the drill and its small charger. Due to its design, it is all too easy to trap the power cord in it, so it will not close. A double headed screwdriver attachment is supplied and is housed as usual on the drill body. Surprisingly, no drill bits are supplied, which is a first for me. I have the B&D set already so that was not a problem, but bear that in mind if you don't.

There are two speed settings. I was puzzled at first by the hammer drill selection, until I realized it was single torque, selected on the torque wheel.

Actually, this is my SECOND B&D Ion hammer drill. My first I found so useful that it is a permanent fixture in my boat toolkit, so I needed the second one to keep at home.

The 18volt battery pack lasts ages, and the driver with battery attached is well-balanced and easy to use. The drill comes with a doublesided (flat/posi) screwdriver bit - no other bits are supplied, but the handy carrying case has enough room for a couple of small bit boxes.

I've used it extensively as a screwdriver - very effective - drilling through wood and metal, jobs which it completes with ease. I've also put up a couple of garage shelves, using the hammer drill - whilst not as powerful as a mains-powered drill here, it still drilled holes quickly, although I did use new good quality bits.

So - 5 stars for utility, portability - and for battery life, which is much better than any other drills I've used.

I've had two 18V Black & Decker drills in the past, and their weakness has been the annoyingly early failure rate of Ni-Cad batteries and chargers. The arrival of the rechargeable Lithium Ion battery version is very welcome. I can take the drill out of its case after weeks of non-use, and it functions immediately, whereas a Ni-Cad battery would be utterly flat.

This drill has a great balance and feel to it, is very powerful, and has a good charging system with charge light on [ winking ] and charge completed [ light steady ]. Hammer action works well, and is self explanatory. Battery is small and light, but seems to last a long time between charges, and being lithium, retains the charge while not being used.
Only gripe is the silly toy town keyless chuck, but as they all have these, we'll have to put up with them, this is no worse than on any other drill i've used, and is actually slightly better than I thought it would be, as it does stay tight most of the time.

Size: 18V Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I tend to buy Bosch by choice. I've always found the quality to be just that bit better than Black and Decker, so worth paying the extra. My existing Bosch cordless is similar in specification to this B&D, but after years of use around the house, the batteries were starting to show signs of age. I was particularly interested in this unit as it included a hammer drill function, which my Bosch didn't have. So, after a few weeks of work I'm broadly satisfied. It doesn't have quite the feel of quality that the Bosch does, but the return on that is a lighter unit. At 18v, it suffers from a limited amount of power, and there are some jobs that it just can't handle. In those cases you either have to purchase a professional quality drill or use a mains power device. Of course it's using the hammer action to drill into stone and brick where you need that power, and that is the unit's shortcoming. In this respect, unless you're drilling into mortar, the hammer action is perhaps a little superfluous as it's not particularly effective. But all that said, it's perfectly good for most jobs and ideal for the typical DIY enthusiast.

This neat hammer drill cum power screwdriver says of itself that it is 'intended for consumer use only', and when elaborating what it can drill through lists wood, metal, plastics and soft masonry. Note the 'soft'.

In other words, it's intended for DIY rather than professional use, and if you want to drill into brickwork or concrete, you really ought to hire or buy something a bit tougher.

I have put it through its paces with a couple of DIY jobs that had been awaiting inspiration and found that it is very capable, and convenient to handle and use. Drilling through plaster, it made no fuss about continuing into breeze block. When, on another wall, it came to a house brick, there was some resistance - but then, a brick is certainly not 'soft'.

I am familiar with a Bosch drill of similar design, so the position and use of the various controls seemed intuitive, i.e. they weren't much different. For a user new to drills of this type, it would take a little time to find your way around changing the speed and direction of rotation, also making the necessary adjustments for turning the hammer action on and off and the torque setting for screwdriving.

With a tool with so much potential to do damage, the instruction leaflet should certainly be consulted in any case. The leaflet seems adequate for instructing the beginner, and rewards even the experienced user with the odd tip such as 'Make an indentation using a centre punch at the centre of the hole to be drilled in order to improve accuracy' and 'If screws are difficult to tighten, try applying a small amount of washing liquid or soap as a lubricant'.

The unit weighs 1.4kg, which makes it noticeably lighter than the 1.
