Lowes Dewalt Drill 506283

I’ve owned approximately 5 electric drills in my life, and this is by far the best in terms of power, ease of use, and durability. This drill is the best that I have owned. The battery lasts a long time and the speed of battery recharging is much faster than others I have owned.  And I have already owned a Craftsman, Makita and a Milwaukee. It’s slim and nimble feeling in your hand. You can easily work overhead or hold this thing in your hand all day. The 2000 rpm is great for drilling smaller holes or driving smaller screws. The form and fit of this drill is excellent. The chuck runs dead true. The 1.5 mA batteries are small, light, yet powerful. Even the case is well thought out. It is compact and holds everything securely.

The LED light stays on about 20 seconds after you release the trigger. The only change I would make is the position of the light. Because it is under the barrel of the drill it does not shine around the tip of the bit but it does provide general lighting. This feature needs improvement and better placement like the Dewalt cordless impact drivers. I like the way the drill fits my hand and it is not heavy. I am not going to do any construction work with it, but I will use it for  routine home maintenance, woodworking projects and crafts, so this drill is perfect for all that. Bottom line is,  it does what I want it to do.
The batteries take about 30 minutes to recharge fully. I recharged both batteries and both hold a charge for 2-3 days even after moderate, semi-daily use over the past two weeks. Now, if you are using this on a project like building a deck, you should get 2-4 hours of use before the battery needs recharged. The carrying case is alright, nothing too fancy but it gets the job done and holds a smaller drill and bits so I’m happy with that
 This is actually my first Dewalt drill and I am very impressed by the fit and performance of this power tool.  This drill is an excellent product and a great value. It is lightweight yet powerful. I would recommend this drill to anyone for household as well as contractor use.
