Does the job just fine. No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Combo model # CLPK27-120
Driver model # PS30B
Impact model # PS40B
12 volt lithium ion batteries. 30 minute charger. I have been using these for the past 3 days in my day job and in the shop. No problems at all. The main reason I went with these as they are lighter than the 18v combo sets. Here is my video review.

Pros:
light
cheap
strong
LED light
battery indicator on impact

Cons:
none so far

I have a similar set and absolutely love it. I bought mine from www.internationaltool.com. Bought the drill for $149.00 and got the impact free. I could use a few more batteries though.

Nicely done… I have the keyless chuck verion that came with the charger and 2 batteries. I’ve been wanting to buy the impact driver without battery or charger and just use what I have. I ordered it from Amazon.com at a good price but when I got it, it was a different model, and only good for 10.8 volts. My 12 volt battery fit perfectly, but I was afraid of using it, so I return it to amazon and got a prompt refund. Although, I did try to get them to just send the correct product.

I really like mine drill… best and most used tool I have.

i have the keyless chuck drill, and have considered adding one of these two, but have never known what the difference is between the two. could anyone shed some light on what the difference between the impact and pocket drivers is? thanks

My nearly ten year old Bosch 14.4 volt just won’t die but I want those lightweight impacts/drivers badly. The difference I found between the impacts and pocket drills I have used, guy I work with sometimes has the Milwaukee’s, very nice, is that the impact drives the screw for you, much less force needed.

I agree with 1thumb. The impact reduces bit slippage as it is short bursts of torque.
