Black & Decker EPC18CA 18-Volt Cordless Drill Review

The B&D (Black & Decker) EPC18CA 18-Volt Cordless Drill is the perfect drill for general maintainence and jobs around the home due it's amazing value for money. This is stripped of any fancy gadgets, futuristic batteries or refined ergonomic design and concentrates on doing the job of drilling. It does have the most important features needed to carry out a wide range of task's and they are 18volt Power, Reverse switch, quick release battery, 24 torque adjustable clutch to accomodate various jobs and keyless chuck for easy drill bit change. This is also a light weiht drill weighing at just 2kg's, ( roughly 2 bags of sugar ) which makes it a very versatile drill to use. This drill wouldnt be up to rigourous hard labour of working a trade but will be more than enough around the home. It is great for hobby'sts too as it more than capabable of drilling through wood, plaster and metal. This drill doesn't have a hammer action so isnt suitable for maisonary (brick work). You don't need anything more powerful than 18volt for a cordless drill, another indication that this drill is up to the job. Even though this is a very affordable drill it still has excellent durability, in terms of construction and battery life.

 If your're looking for something to have around the home to assemble flat pack furniture or putting up pictures, have in the shed or to use on your hobby, then this is drill is perfect. This is a powerful, no frills drill to get the job done. What you get in the Cheapest package price I found is :

  • 1 x Black & Decker EPC18CA 18 volt drill driver

  • 1 x 18 volt battery

  • 1 x Battery charger

  • 1 x Instruction booklet

  • (Note the lack of carry case) This is only needed if you plan on transporting the drill regularly.
