Product Review - Black and Decker BDCDDBT120C Smartech Single Speed Drill

20V MAX Lithium
Single Speed Drill/Driver
Black & Decker

This is great for small home projects. I have been using this tool around the house for a month now.  I have a bigger more powerful drill, but the size and design of this one is excellent to pick up for quick jobs. The weight and balance of this drill makes it really convenient, especially when working in tight places. But some of the features just do not make sense to me, specifically have a portable USB charge function, but only once you take the batter off the drill. Maybe if it came with 2 batteries I could see using this but not otherwise.  Some smart features are really nice, with young children in the home, the lock function through the app is nice to have. The ability to locate the drill, or check battery status from the app could also come in handy.

The key features are:
SMARTECH; iOS and Android compatible app enables Bluetooth controls
Remote battery locking/unlocking
Remote battery locate
Remote status of charge
Battery includes built in USB port for charging phones, tablets, mp3 players and more
11-position clutch to prevent stripping of screws
LED work light to illuminate work surface

If all you do is small jobs around the house this might be the perfect tool for you. If however you occasionally tackle bigger projects you will either want more power or have two drills in your tool collection.

Overall good for the price point.

Note: I received a free copy of this product through The Amazon Vine program for an honest review.
