18-Volt Lithium Ion 1/4 in. Impact Driver Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool Bought this online in a combo kit with a drill and have been very happy with it. The tool has excellent balance, and good weight and is useful in an innumerable amount of projects around the house. Redoing your cabinets hardware? Shoring up some nail pops with drywall screws? This tool can do it all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Motor, Good batteries I bought one of these to replace the previous Bosch 18v model. After a few too many drops and abuse it died. The new 1.5 Ah batteries are good but lack some of the staying power of my coworkers 3.0 Ah Makita. I steel stud frame and on heavy gauge material (18g and thicker) they last long enough for the other battery to charge. I thought that the battery gauge would be kind lame, homeowner type deal but after using it I thought it was a good addition. I can check where the battery is at before climbing up the scaffold. I like these gun better than the Makitas, Dewalts, Porter Cables or Hitachis of my coworkers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power and quality. I have been looking for a Impact driver for a long time. I decided on a Bosch because of the experience with my Bosch cordless drill. The battery last a lot longer than another brand I bought years ago. I can keep moving forward with my projects and have to stop and recharge as I use to do with the other brand six batteries. I would recommend it to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch IDS-181-02 Impact Driver Excellent Power, longer run time on the Battery,Compact, gets into tighter places

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size & Performance top of the class! Handles 99% of my drill & fasten needs needs. Handy to use hex drill bits, lots of torque to break free & drive serious fasteners, making it two tools in one. Belt hook is brilliant & carrying a spare slim pack battery (in your pocket) up the ladder is a light burden. No comparison to any non lithium tool and wins the ease of carry contest hands down.Takes a beating and keeps repeating. I own three Bosch impacts I have used regularly with confidence & much satisfaction..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from most compact impact driver I had a few different impact drivers. My best was 18v dewalt before i bought this one. 3 lights as good as on 20v dewalt. Battary life extremely long. Impact weights almost like a hand screw driver. Fits in a hand so perfect, can use all day long. Very nice little soft case, the most compact i ever had. Variable Speed Trigger is great. I like battery light on slimpack, dewalt don't have it.Tool has planty of power to put 4in screws in 2x4 easy, but not as fast as bigger brother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had bought this sooner! Last year we purchased our 80 year old home. Since we've moved in, there have been numerous projects that required driving screws. Up till a couple months ago, I was relying on my old cordless drill to perform both drilling and driving duties. Its battery is showing its age and needs to be recharged before each use, which is not convenient. I often have just manually screwed in fasteners as a result. Since I purchased my IDS181, I've put it to good use. Despite being 18v versus my old 19.2v drill, the Bosch drives much better due to the impact function and its greater torque. Recently, I drove a series of 3" #8 screws full depth into solid wood without the need for pilot holes. I was impressed how easily the screws were sunk. In the short time of ownership, I've saved much effort with a number of jobs. Looking at my long "to-do" list, this driver and its partner drill, (DDS-181), will see be very handy.
