- Great drill; Marginal charger Review by Matt
Quality Price Value
The drill is powerful and compact. Not sure why Milwaukee still doesn't put a bit holder somewhere on their drills, but they did add an LED work-light that comes on when you touch the trigger. The new battery system works great on the drill; much easier to remove the batteries than the older system on my last drill (10 yr old Milwaukee 18V, as well). But the charger is a bit fickle with how you position the battery on it. It's a very loose fit and you have to adjust it side to side until the contacts are just right or the charger reports you have a bad battery (even when brand new). Hopefully, the charge lasts long enough that the charger doesn't become a long term nuisance. All-and-all an improvement over my other 10 year old Milwaukee 18V drill.
