You also get a rapid charger that can quickly re-charge the 18 volt batteries in only 30 minutes. If you have any spare Bosch 18 v batteries from other drills lying around then you’ll be pleased to know that the DDS181-03 is compatible with every 18-volt lithium-ion Bosch battery.

The chuckless locking system is easy to use but like most models if you have weak hands you may find that the bit will sometimes come loose.

If you’re looking for a compact yet powerful cordless drill with hammer action and can afford the higher price of this model then you should take a look at the Bosch DDS181-03.
