I had to go to Lowes today to get some stain and I thought I’d check up on the instore special that someone posted about earlier today that There was a Bosch 18V driver with two batteries and charger for 99$.

It’s a fact. I got me one of them bad boys. Regularly 189$.

Looks like they have plenty of them too.
Even Amazon is higher.

http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-DDS181-02-18-Volt-Compact-Batteries/dp/B0052TZCSY/ref=sr_1_fkmr3_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353275353&sr=8-1-fkmr3&keywords=Bosch+18V+driver+with+two+bat+and+charger+99%24

UPDATE:
After charging the batteries and running it with several drill bits, it seems a bit under powered compared to my 20v lithium DeWalts. But it will defiantly do.

Ah, that was you. Thanks. Now I have four cordless drills and may actually find one when I need it.

What’s the amp hour rating on the batteries that come with it?

Is this the one?

http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10151&catalogId=10051&productId=3962441&cId=

Listed on the Lowes site at $99, with 1.3 AH batteries.

If they’ve got the 1.5 AH ones on sale I’m all over it, but in terms of ordering off the Lowes site, it’s a different drill and different batteries.

Loren, yes, you’re right, I grabbed the wrong one off the web. I went down and checked. it is the DDS180-02 18-Volt 1/2-Inch Compact Tough Drill Driver with Two Lithium-Ion Batteries sold here at Amazon for 189$.
http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-DDS180-02-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Batteries/dp/B0052TZDAG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353279595&sr=8-1&keywords=Bosch+18-Volt+1%2F2-in+Cordless+Lithium+ion+Compact+Drill%2FDriver+with+Case+DDBB180-02

Minus the case.
So it would be 1.3 Ah SlimPack batteries.

It’s a good compliment to my dewalts. I often need several drivers with different bits, and getting yet another dewalt would only confuse me, this way I can tell right away.

Thanks. I had a Bosch ni-cad drill for years and really liked
everything about it… except the ongoing costs of replacing
the batteries.

You did good. The only difference between the 180 and the 181 is that the 181 comes with the new 1.5ah batteries with the battery gauge. I have the 181 (two in fact) and love it.

Okay, my Lowes had the $99 driver, but also the driver/impact driver combo for $199. I have the driver (love it) and have been wanting an impact driver for a while now…

Yep, I bought the combo.

After reading about this on here last night I saw it pop up on the lowes site and then when I was pumping gas this morning an ad for it popped up on the pump screen
