Black and Decker LDX120C Review

This cordless drill from Black and Decker is provided with a powerful 20v lithium-ion battery which has a much longer life than the ni-cad batteries. These batteries with the lithium-ion technology can hold a charge for more than a year, and the life cycle is tremendous compared to any other battery. This is one of the most compact 20v drills in the market which allows you to work in tight spaces and confined rooms. With its 3.8 pounds, this baby makes it easy to drill over your head with less user fatigue. The adjustable speed (0-650rpm) and the 11 step torque settings allow you to do different tasks such as drilling and screwing in materials like plastic, woods or metal.

BLACK DECKER LDX120C Review

BLACK+DECKER LDX120C 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill/Driver

Who is the Black and Decker LDX120C for?

As this drill only has max 650 rpm and a 3/8″ chuck this drill isn’t for professionals (at least not as their main cordless drill). But for home use this drill is very suitable, in fact this is a very powerful cordless tool for home use and you don’t have to pay big bucks for it. This drill is very lightweight which make it very suitable for basically anyone (face it, there is a lot of different physique out there), preventing user fatigue, even if you are standing on your toes and drill in the roof. The compact size of this 20v cordless drill from Black and Decker makes it very easy to work in confined spaces such as blind attic. “But I can’t hold a flashlight AND the drill if the work area is tight and I have a 220lbs body?” No problem, this b & d tool has an inbuilt LED work light which is turned on once you start drilling. With the 11 torque settings and the adjustable speed, you don’t have to be afraid of damaging the material you are working with.

PROS:

It comes with a 20v lithium ion battery. It doesn’t lose charge when the drill is not in use. The lithium ion battery has a longer life cycle than any other battery (like the ni-cad batteries).

Adjustable speed and 11 torque settings makes this cordless tool a good multi tool. If used correctly, you don’t have to be afraid to damage the material.

Good max speed (650 rpm) and power for a home drill. You can drill in any material up to a certain point.

Compact size and light weight. Like I mentioned, you can easy work in confined spaces and do over your head drilling with less user fatigue.

It comes with an inbuilt LED work light so you don’t lose your spot while drilling.

CONS:

It’s only one battery included in the box, so if you tend to use your B & D cordless drill a lot I recommend you always put the battery in the charger when you are done drilling.

It’s only a 3/8″ chuck and not a 1/2″ (like most of the Dewalt models). The 3/8 is in 9/10 times fine for home use, but if you think you need a 1/2″ you should consider Dewalt.

There is only one double ended bit included, which is fine if you only need to use your drill once in a while for screw driving tasks. If you need to use your drill for a lot of different tasks I would include Black & Decker 71-973 Quick Connect 30-Piece Drilling and Screw driving Set in your order.
