Does this Dewalt have a battery maintainer? So it can be left on charge for extended periods.

Asked by maptimer December 29, 2015

Answer

See owners manual for addtl details. According to manufacturer directions this particular battery, XR lithium, can be left on charger with no concern. Battery can also be charged when only partially discharged without any worry. What IS bad is completely draining the battery. The direction s specifically say NOT to do this. The battery will stop receiving a charge and will require replacement.

Does this drill have enough torque and battery capacity to drill a 4.5 inch hole saw thru 1 inch HDPE plastic?

It should. I have used one of these all day on one battery, one charge. Li+ batteries have the highest charge density (coulombs/lb) than any other battery type, primary or secondary.

Been thru a beating
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This drill handles everything that get thrown at it everyday no matter what.. completely blows the company tools out of the water.. the company goes with a black and blue model but all i use is BLACK AND YELLOW
by Daronjames
The perfect product
Purchase this drill about a month ago and I couldn’t be more happy. Whatever you do don’t get the cheap version it’s worth the money to get this nicer one. The ultra bright LED light on the drill is worth the money.This thing runs forever on one battery charge. The torque is unbelievable with this brushless motor. The fit and finish is perfect! Can be more happy with this product! Just get it!!
by Berkley
Outperforms my previous corded drill!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Have had this on my workbench now for a year and it's used everyday. It's well balanced, has great power, and light weight even with the larger 5 hour battery. I build furniture and the clutch has positively proved advantageous, reliable, and dependable.

My everyday drill.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased his a few years ago and it’s still going strong. It’s in my tool bag everyday because...well, I use it everyday!

Great compact drill/driver!!!
Works like a champ! Recommend the hard case if you have the habit of not being gentile with tool storage. Super torque and long battery life for projects throughout the day. It's pricey, but well worth every penny :)

20-VOLT LITHIUM-ION CORDLESS BRUSHLESS COMPACT DRILL
Seems like a very powerful drill, but the true test will be how long it will last. $200 seems high, but I needed it.

Finished fence project quickly
After watching some DIY videos online that compared the Dewalt DCD790D2 Compact Drill to comparable competitor products, I bought the Dewalt drill specifically for helping me build a backyard fence that had been long on my "to-do" list. I was very impressed with how quickly I was able to complete the attachment of the vertical fence boards portion of the project with the Dewalt drill. This drill was a significant time saver, gave me no problems, and battery life was quite reasonable. Can't wait to have an excuse to use it again for an extended period!

Exactly what I expect from Dewalt
I needed a powerful, lightweight, cordless drill\driver and this one is a powerhouse! My 3 year old even thinks so! It has more than paid for itself in the month I have owned it.
