I bought This drill at Christmas time 2013 because it was $99 instead of $199. One of the 2 batteries failed in just a few months. I loved the drill and battery vs other brands That I have used. I didn't want to buy just another battery so I waited till Christmas 2014 and bought the same drill for $99 so I could have more than one battery. I have 2 drills, 2 chargers and still now only 2 batteries as another battery failed in just 3 months and hardly any use. Batteries only 90 days warranty. No wonder.
I have two 20V drills that came with extra batteries. One is DCB201 Battery systems and the other is a DCB207 Battery system, Batteries are interchangeable but the battery life is very short.
I did not buy extended warranty but after almost a year on each of the systems one of the batteries died and will not recharge.
Not sure if I can get them replaced. I like the system, very light weight compared to the 18V system. If the batteries continue to die, then will revert to the 18V systems.
I was screwing down metal roof tinwith my 20v 1.5 Li-lon the other two guys had a 18v dewalt and a 19.2 craftsman.The 20v Li-lon was by far the best to use great size and weight.But i was very disapointed that both the other drills out last both my batterys!!!
The 20v impact n drill driver combo set is great overall. this iscomparing to ther top brands. I love how dewalt has a 20v set n impact has 3 led lights. I own a makita n milwaukee 18v set too. They both charge faster than the dewalt, but not as strong, due to the extra 2v. The milwaukee battery lasts longer n has battery gauge, but drills are about 1.3lb heavier, this affects u though after 8hrs of usage. the makita charges the quikest and is comparable in weight but is the weakest out of all 3. The dewalt is better overall but should have better CHARGER.
Pros: extremely light N tourque is powerful enough
Cons: battery charger is slow and battery drains quick
