1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish batteries, 17 Mar 2012
This review is from: Bosch PSR 18 Cordless 18 Volt Drill/Driver, 2 x NiCD Batteries (DIY & Tools)
I have had this for eighteen months and already neither battery will hold the charge. The drill itself is fine when working but the charger has no indication of the battery state and does not turn itself off. I have been careful not to leave the batteries on charge for excessive periods of time and they have been flat before charging. Previously I had a cheap 14v drill to do the jobs I use it for, it had only one battery, and it lasted four years with absolutely no problem.

I found exactly the same problem, less than 18 months and the batteries are Kn***ered, replacement prices for the batteries are astronomic, it's cheaper to buy a new drill...... so I did, a Makita a proper quality product!
Bosch should hang their heads in shame over this rubbish. :-(

I've also had issues with Bosch power tools. The biggest problem is that when you contact them with a problem, they couldn't give a toss!
Expect NO back up from Bosch and you won't be disappointed, that's why I sold all the Bosch equipment that I had at a car boot sale and replaced them with Ryobi.

I had exactly the same problem as the original customer, earlier this year. I doubt if I had used the drill more than half a dozen times. Unfortunately it was a present and I couldn't prove purchase but Bosch kindly offered a repair - for 192.56 !!!
