It can take a few attempts to fully tighten the chuck so the bit stays firm.
This drill-driver has a soft-grip handle, an LED work light, and is capable of delivering up to 350 pounds of torque. It is an efficient, affordably-priced drill that works best on wood and light-duty metal applications.
The battery performance is a little underwhelming and the drill lacks the convenient battery charge indicator found on some other models.
This compact, easy-to-carry drill-driver is best suited for the lightest duty applications. It comes with 2 batteries, a charger, a soft carry bag, and a drill-drive bit set. The comprehensive bit set includes items that may be beyond the power scope of this pocket drill.
As with other Bosch models, there can be some dissatisfying play that creates a wobble in the bits.
This unit fits comfortably in your hand and features a convenient battery charge indicator. The attachments allow you to drill at a 90 degree angle, perform offset driving for screws that are as close as 1/2-inch from a corner, and use high-torque hex-bits.
The two areas of concern on this model are the wobble in the chuck and the difficulty in removing the battery from the unit when it needs charging.
The brushless motor can extend the life of your drill up to two times. It features a 3/8-inch chuck and an LED work light, and you can store 4 bits directly on the tool. This bundle comes with the drill, 2 batteries, a charger, and a soft carry bag.
Because of the unit's compact size, the battery is housed in the handle, which can make it awkward to hold for individuals with smaller hands.

Bosch power drills are well-known to hobbyists and professionals alike for their good combination of durability and performance. With a drill line that includes great corded and cordless options, it is easy to find a power drill from Bosch that will serve you on any number of home projects. Picking a Bosch drill, however, can be tricky given the number of different options available. Choose the right chuck size — commonly 1/4, 3/8, or 1/2 inch — for the drill bits you want to use. The larger size is better for heavy-duty tasks or professional projects, but something like a 1/4-inch drill may be more affordable for hobby use.
