The Bosch PSB 18 LI-2 packs in a lot of features.Click here for a larger image.

PSB 18 LI-2 Cordless Lithium-Ion Hammer Drill

The PSB 18 LI-2 is the handiest tool in its class, which is particularly due to its lightweight (30% less weight than similar competitors’ products) and compact design. In addition, the setting ring with 30 preselectable torque settings provides the necessary fingertip control for every screw.

The tool has a 2-speed high performance planetary gearbox. This gives high power in the 1st gear and high speed in the 2nd gear, which ensures superior lifetime, best power transfer and high running smoothness.

 PSB 18 LI-2 Cordless Lithium-Ion Hammer Drill

The Lithium-Ion technology means that the tool is always ready to use with no self-discharge and no memory effect. The Lithium-ion batteries have a particularly long life due to Electronic Cell Protection. The PSB 18 LI-2 is easy to handle.

The keyless chuck with Bosch Auto-Lock ensures fast and easy drill bit change, without the need for additional tools. The Auto-Lock system ensures the quickest and easiest changing of accessories. The drill spindle automatically locks the drill once it comes to a standstill and the keyless chuck can be easily and conveniently opened. The built-in LED PowerLight means the workpiece is always well lit and clearly visible.

18 Volt ‘Power4all’ System

Introducing the powerful 18 volt family with Lithium-Ion technology from Bosch. The 18 volt ‘Power4all’ system is the new cordless system with Lithium-Ion technology for an entire family of Bosch tools in the house and garden. One single 18 volt battery and charger fits all the tools in the system.

 PSB 18 LI-2 Cordless Lithium-Ion Hammer Drill

The ‘Power4all’ label on the tools show at a glance which tools belong to the family. Users can easily and quickly identify the tools within the system.


The system is simple. The user can buy the full tool, which includes the battery and charger, or purchase the components individually as needed. All tools can be bought as a bare tool so once a DIYer owns the battery and charger, there is no need to purchase them again. This means owning many different batteries for many different tools is a thing of the past.

Having just one battery and charger for many tools offers users the highest convenience. The system is easy to understand, meaning no more confusion over which battery fits which tool. Not having to purchase a new battery for each new tool not only saves money for the customer, it also saves on storage space.

Please check execution of tool for if it includes battery and charging station.

The Advantages of Lithium-Ion Technology

Tools with Lithium-Ion technology are ready for use practically all of the time. Regardless of whether the battery is fully charged, partially charged, or flat, you can put it in the charging station without having to worry about self-discharge or memory effect.

 Because of lithium ion technology, Bosch li-ion power tools have power that is available six times longer than tools with conventional NiCad batteries

Small Tools, Big Progress--Simply Remarkable

Bosch Lithium-Ion cordless tools like the PSB 18 are ready for use quickly. Even after a period of 4 months on standby, a fully charged Lithium-Ion battery is still charged to approximately 85 per cent. This means that Bosch Power is available to you for six times longer than that of conventional NiCd batteries.

 Bosch lithium-Ion technology

Full Power at all Times

No self-discharge, no memory effect: constant battery capacity over the entire lifetime. Always ready when you are thanks to lithium-Ion technology.

Bosch lithium-Ion technology

Same Battery Power at Half the Size

Due to the Lithium-Ion technology, the size and weight of the batteries are reduced by approximately 60 per cent compared to conventional nickel cadmium batteries--although they offer the same amount of power.

 Bosch lithium-Ion technology

Batteries That Can Withstand the Elements

The intelligent electronic cell protection, Bosch ECP, protects the Lithium-Ion batteries against excessive temperatures and overload, therefore giving them a particularly long lifetime.

 Bosch lithium-Ion technology

High Power, Low Weight

Bosch cordless tools with Lithium-Ion technology impress with their very compact design, low weight and very good ease of use. This saves you a lot of effort when doing those DIY jobs.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I gave this drill to my husband (who is a plumber/electrician), so the review that follows is based on his opinion. The drill he normally uses is a Makita, very heavy duty and capable of drilling pretty well anything, BUT considerably more expensive, as you might expect.

    He has used this drill for a lot of jobs that don't need the power of his Makita drill, from choice, because this drill is lighter and therefore lot easier to use, particularly in tight spaces. Like the Makita, it has a light which also comes in handy when drilling in dark corners. One other minor plus point over the Makita is that it has a battery indicator that tells you how much charge is left - preventing those annoying situations where your drill packs up halfway through a job! Charging doesn't take long, so he felt the battery indicator to some extent offset the need for the second battery he has for the Makita, particularly if the drill is for home use only. More expensive trade aimed drills usually give you a second battery - but you'll always pay considerably more for a drill with two batteries.

    My husband felt this would be a good choice of drill for a competent DIYer, or as a second, more lightweight drill for anyone in a trade. It's fine for lightweight masonry jobs, but wouldn't cope with a blue brick or lots of concrete. But for the price, and the market it appeared to be aimed at, he felt it was good value, and easy to use.

    I agonised over the choice between this and Bosch PSR 18 LI 2 Cordless Lithium Ion Drill/Driver. The fact is that most of the time I want a screwdriver and now and then a drill. Clearly the screwdriver will drill too etc, but I wanted hammer action. Anyway, I went for the Hammer Drill.

    I needn't have worried. The Hammer Drill allows very precise action when used in screwdriver mode, loads of torque, and nice torque control. You won't stall this baby. What you point it at, it will drive!

    The drill is good too and the hammer action does all it should. In the past I have always felt that cordless drills were a bit feeble; this one is not.

    The lithium ion battery is very good. You can get NiCads cheaper, but I really would recommend the extra expenditure. I have a very nice Ryobi cordless screwdriver, now rendered almost useless by its totally floppy NiCads.

    I would mention one negative. When you take your finger off the trigger, the action stops very suddenly. I guess it has a brake. This very sudden arrest does have the effect, on mine, of loosening the keyless chuck, and after a few times the bit can fall out. Don't know how general this problem is. I thought about deducting a star, but love this gadget just a little too much to do that.

    >> Updated 25 March 2011 << Still love this gadget; I work it hard almost daily and it's ready for more. But the problem of the keyless chuck coming loose is still with me. I've got used to it, but can't kid myself that it's not a nuisance.

    The specification of Bosch (and many other) drills sold by Amazon frequently omits to mention an important aspect regarding the drills performance, that being its actual speed, so should anyone be wondering this is the spec that matters.

    Idle speed (1st gear / 2nd gear) 0 - 400 / 1.650 rpm
    Max. torque for soft /hard screw driving applications 30 / 48 Nm
    Torque settings 30 + 2
    Battery voltage 18,0 V
    Chucks Keyless chuck
    Machine weight with battery 1,80 kg
    Screw diameter up to 8 mm
    Drill diameter in steel 13 mm
    Drill diameter in wood 35 mm
    Drilling dia. in masonry 15 mm

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    First impressions of this cordless drill were more to do with the case to be honest. Such a large plastic case for what is actually a fairly physically small drill and lots of wasted space to boot. Maybe the Bosch packaging designers need to have a rethink as it does seem to swamp the product itself and just seems a bit OTT.
    The instructions seemed reasonably clear and concise. No real issues there to be honest, other than do we really need another manual for the battery charger base? Especially as the drill instructions were so concise.
    The charger base was wide and supportive of the battery pack, however it seemed light and flimsy and I am unsure how robust it will prove to be. In addition it was a bit of a fiddle trying to get the battery mounted properly, there does seem to be a bit of a knack to it, although I have no doubt that practice will make perfect. On the plus side, the charging cycle wasn't excessive in duration and the LED indicator was bright and clear, giving no doubt as to how the charging cycle was progressing. I have had cordless drills that were so much easier to place onto the charger base, but you couldn't clearly see the charging display. Bit of a trade off I suppose.
    The drill had a screwdriver bit already in place. It seemed to be of reasonable quality but most manufacturers provide a small selection of bits. Just supplying one was a bit (no pun intended) mean.
    Ok, onto the drill itself. Visually it appeared reasonably small and compact. It feels stable in the hand and initially seemed very well put together using quality plastics, etc. Closer inspection and subsequent use caused me to rethink that in a couple of areas.
