After using this one from DEWALT, they say they’ll never go back to corded devices. “I have now owned this drill for over [six] months and use it weekly. It is still performing like it did when it was brand new!” the happy customer wrote.

However, many reviewers commented that they were having problems with the battery taking charge. One such customer believed they were having the same issue until they realized the battery wasn’t snapping into the charger correctly. “Once I did that, the batteries charged up as expected and provided days of power for me. Make sure you are completely inserting your battery into the charger. It should click into place,” the reviewer noted.
