When other cordless drills suffer from drill bits getting loose during drilling, the Bosch PSB 1800 LI-2 cordless combi drill maintains its workrate even in the toughest of materials. What we likedIf anything, the grip is a little on the small side. I’ve got large hands, and the bottom of my palm started rubbing on the battery release button surround almost immediately. I don’t know how comfortable this will be over time, and I don’t think it would be great to use with gloves on. The grip shape is fine, but it’s not as refined compared to the ones on the Ryobi R18PD3 or the DeWalt DCD796. Bosch have been a bit stingy on the rubberised sections as well, as the tips of my fingers are trying to grip on to hard plastic during use. It’s just not as comfortable as some of the other cordless drills on my list.
However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. You get a decent case and two batteries to play with. These two Power Alliance batteries can fuel a range of tools by different brands, which is remarkable in the age of proprietary systems. It’s a good place to start as long as you don’t expect this cordless drill to perform like one of Bosch’s Professional level tools. pre-selectable torque, drill and impact drill settings; Integrated LED light for optimum illumination of dark work areas One of the big power tool brands, especially in the UK, Bosch have a decent slice of the market with their two broad levels of equipment. Their “blue” professional tools and “green” DIY tools vary massively in their capabilities as well as cost. I think it’s fair to say that the PSB 1800 fits squarely in the green DIY camp.

The Bosch PSB 1800 weighs around 1.3kg with the battery attached. It makes it a very lightweight cordless drill. Having lightweight helps you to hold it for a much longer time and drill with increased precision. It comes with a double screwdriver bit, so this cordless drill can also be used as a mechanical screwdriver for screwing as well as unscrewing. The Power and battery are not strong enough as compared to competitors in the same range. It is good enough for easy tasks but it won’t handle heavy tasks because it cannot draw such amount of power. The competitors were much better in terms of power and battery. The Bosch Drills comes with two years of product warranty but here’s a plus point, when you activate the warranty online you get an additional one year of warranty. So overall you get three years of warranty with this product.
The Bosch PSB 1800 LI-2 runs on a Bosch 18v PowerForAll lithium-ion battery, meaning it shares battery compatibility not only with other Bosch 18v Home & Garden (Green) cordless tools, but also with other tools from other manufacturers who have recently become part of the Power For All 18v Alliance, including Gardena, Wagner and Rapid. It’s great that Bosch have included a charge level indicator on the base of this drill. It takes the guesswork out of knowing how much juice is left. It’s something that Ryobi could take on board. Right in front of the indicator is the LED work light. It’s reasonably powerful but turns off as soon as you let go of the trigger. You can, just about, run the light without turning the drill on as well, which is nice.
