Black & Decker® 20V Li-Ion Cordless Drill with Smartech
Powerful, Compact & Lightweight
Black & Decker’s 20V Li-Ion Cordless Drill is very compact and lightweight. It’s perfect for tackling those everyday jobs and diy projects around the house.
When I took the cordless drill out from the package and held it in my hand, I couldn’t believe it. I was totally expecting my arm to drop when I picked it up so much so that I had a ninja death drip on it. I had prepared myself to be lifting the equivalent of a tonne of bricks. To my amazement, It was like lifting up a pillow. I was shocked – literally! I have been so used to using cordless drills that are really heavy – for me at least. I love doing diy projects such as making my own bird feeders, planter boxes, garden centre and more. I have been unable to hold a drill for very long because my arm gets tired and hand cramps up. It has taken me forever to finish a project because of my constant need to take a break. Not any more! I absolutely love this drill. It was like it was made with me in mind.
Black & Decker’s 20V Li-Ion Cordless Drill has virtually no assembly required. It’s pretty much plug and play. The package contains everything you need to get started.
(1) BDCDDBT120 SMARTECH Cordless Drill/Driver
(1) LBXR20BT SMARTECH Battery
(1) Double Ended Bit
(1) SmartTech Guide
After opening the box, don’t be alarmed if you don’t see the double ended bit right away, like I was. It’s hiding in a nifty spot made just for it that is located at the base of the drill.
The battery is equipped with a built-in portable charger for charging phones, tablets, mp3 players, and other mobile devices.
By downloading the Black & Decker® Smartech iOS and Android compatible app enables Bluetooth® controls. This feature will allow remote battery locking/unlocking, battery locate, state of charge and programmable alerts and reminders.
Other features that I love about the Black & Decker 20V Li-Ion Cordless Drill is the keyless chuck, 11 position clutch and LED work light. The keyless chuck makes for quick and easy bit changes. The 11 position clutch is great for preventing the stripping of screws and damaging material and the LED work light is awesome in low light situations giving the ability to illuminate any work surface. The light only comes on when the cordless drill is in use, thus saving battery life.
To be honest, this Black & Decker 20V Li-Ion Cordless Drill was supposed to be for hubby for Father’s Day – but- I think I will be stealing it. -lol- I couldn’t wait to get started on some projects – like this garden centre that I am building. I am putting it on the other side of our privacy fence at the edge of our back deck. It doesn’t look like much right now and I have yet to level the ground but it’s coming along nicely. I am re-purposing an old deck and deck boards. This will be the area where I store my soil and planters etc. I will also be using the area to transplant any plants into larger pots.
If you are looking to buy a cordless drill that anyone in the home can use, consider this drill. I am in love with it and can’t wait to start more projects – once this one is done of course. -lol-
