I am stunned that Bosch would use such a dishonest method to sell their products. The "Power 4All" logo is obviously designed so that it is easily mistaken for "Power 4AH".

Thought exactly the same thing. They knew what they where doing with that!!
Is this better than an aldi workzone 18v?
1.5ah is a bit small. plus its only got a 10mm plastic chuck.i would say 60 quid will get you a better single battery drill

Care to share some examples ?
Great drill, had one for over a year and just finished installing kitchen cupbpards with it, very pleased with its performance
I've got one.. Its decent enough. Used it quite a few times to drill holes in the solid masonry walls in our 1950s semi. Takes a bit of doing but gets there in the end. Cracking battery life.
Mine worked great for over a year then I drilled in to concrete flags and it got jammed and died. Glad for the 2 year warranty Fedex due today to pick it up for repairs.

For DIY'ers I still think this is great value.
I had one of these, worked great for about two years before the batteries started losing their charge very quickly even when not stored on the drill. I definitely fell victim to buy cheap buy twice.
Mine managed half a hole in masonry and went back. Picked up a barely used dewalt dcd990m2 for the same price, which is far more powerful. Had to get batteries seperately though
Brilliant little drill. Had mine for what feels like forever & would highly recommend for the DIYer. Other than the chuck size not allowing for bigger bits this drill has coped with everything I've thrown at it. To even want to attempt to drill a 16mm hole in concrete shows my faith in it so probably a good job the bit wouldn't fit! It's small & light for a hammer drill so easy to work with & if you are into the power4all ecosystem (or want to be) then one of the most cost effective means of picking up batteries. If you want something meatier there's a brushless ozito at homebase which combined with the einhell 3ah charger combo at Wickes would give a decent package for £75.

They've been using Power 4 All about 10 years back when people wouldn't have even conceived 4AH being a capacity of a drill battery.

They have subsequently, a few years ago, rebranded Power 4 All with a cleaner logo but this being a very old battery capacity is likely to have the old branding.

Worked a treat for me the last time a deal was posted. No comments re professional use but an avid DIYer like myself was very pleased with it.

I think I got it cheaper a while back. I've easily assembled an Ikea Malm dressing table, 2 visthus wardrobes (1 big 1 small) a Billy bookcase, bisunge extendable bed and a large hemnes chest of drawers on both batteries. With spare power to hack a few (drilling extras) in the room. And this is with the drill doing the work of screws, dowel bolts, cam fittings, etc. Basically anything involving a twist.

Toughest jobs I've given it are drilling a hole in concrete and a hole in 5mm thick metal (whatever is used in a gate frame, and it's probably because my drill bits are horrible and I'm an amateur.)

Basically in the 6 odd months I've had mine it's been a real pleasure vs the manual alternatives. I would've dreaded the jobs.
Thanks. Great find I was in the market for a power drill - also found a nice set to go with it here (reviewed well):
amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1
I've had this the last few years and it's been great for my DIY needs. Battery life is fantastic and its handled everything I've thrown at it with ease, including drilling 25mm holes though thick concrete and building a fence and decking.
Got one of these, cracking little drill and the batteries last for ever. Paid £65 a couple of years ago from B&Q and I am very happy with it.
This or aldi?
Paid £50 on prime day 2 years ago. Still a good deal for today.

Just imagine if 5AH became the industry standard. I wonder whether if they will continue to use the Power 4All branding!
hot ,great deal and great product
This or the one battery version for £83.90 ?
Had mine for about 4 years, high quality drill and this is a great price. Don't confuse with the cheaper PSR version, which doesn't have a hammer function. Works well with light masonary (exterior brick & breezeblock for example), but I wouldn't expect any cordless drill to handle concrete. For those having an issue, I suggest you choose better quality drill bits.

And I've never confused the Power4All logo with 4Ah, but then I know that the correct abreviation is for 'hours' to be in lower case...

Got an older version of this drill in a different style. Found the 10mm chuck a little restrictive but understand why Bosch did it because mine isn't a particularly strong drill in use but generally functions well. I'm happy enough with mine but its nothing special and I guess a bit overpriced considering the limited size chuck. I paid about £75 for mine about 4 years ago. I actually use a cheaper cordless drill when they going gets tough or I need to use larger bits. The Bosch seems to be a weaker motor with better runtime but not as much power.

The previous version of this drill is NiCad rather than Li-ION and has less torque.
I bought one of these from Homebase about 3 years ago on promotion for around £50 and have found it so useful both as a drill and a screwdriver. The batteries hold their charge for ages and only take an hour or so to recharge. For a small drill, its got a lot of poke and it's handy for getting into tight spaces. I thoroughly recommend it for DIY jobs around the house and it has a useful torchlight and battery meter.
Anyone know how much better the blue GSB drills are compared to this?

I already have one of those with three batteries...so maybe would be better for me to get a new bare GSB drill for £60 instead and share the 3 batteries across both drills, rather than get one of these with (presumably) different charger and batteries?
Cracking drill. Very strong and battery lasts for ages. I’ve used it for everything, even tightening the lose screws in my wife’s head

It's this one which is definitely Li-ION and uses the same batteries and charging system as this model.

37755882-IcAt5.jpg
However the cheaper drill I have that supplies much more torque is actually an older ni-cad drill. Normally nicad batteries can supply higher current than equivalent li-ion batteries or was the case at the time a few years ago. I'm sure li-ion batteries have improved since then but the AEG drill I have could use either nicad or li-ion battery packs but had less torque with li-ion battery packs. Also the Bosch drill will cutout if you overwork it but the AEG drill keeps working. I believe the Bosch instructions warned this would happen as the drill would cutout if the li-ion battery pack temperature got too high. However the real pain with nicads you pretty much always have to charge before use as the charge drains away quite quickly if not used. Hence I would often start working with the Bosch but switch to the AEG when one battery pack was charged. In order to be fair I ought to point out the AEG drill is about 50% bigger than the Bosch and physically about twice the weight although some of that is the heavier nicad battery pack. Fairly sure my Bosch drill is regarded as a fairly light duty drill and the stronger drills are in the Bosch blue range.
I bought this drill with 2 x 2 Ah batteries over 3 years ago and haven't had any issue with it. It's chuck is actually more precise (and can hold 1mm drill bits) than the 2 Bosch Pro combi drills I also have. The Green "Power4All" line of cordless gear is a bit of a mixed-bag, but it does have some good tools (this one and the AHS 55-20 hedge trimmer, for instance)

most li ion battery packs have a BMS battery managment system circuit, this will limit the max current the pack can supply, to stop the cells from being destroyed. so if your drill stops when drilling into something hard, its not the drill cutting out, its the bms .

thats why battery packs of 4ah or 5ah are better, these have 5 cells in series connected in parralel to another 5 cells, these packs can normally deliver twice the max current since the batteries are in parralel,
that means more current to the motor

1.5ah is pretty much enough for any diy job. I have the same drill but with 2ah batteries and I have done a full house refurb using it with no issues. Since then I have been using it pretty much daily for tasks at work for nearly two years and it still goes strong.

I was expecting it to die after a year of such tortures as I've seen several times a little smoke came from the motor but no.

Unless you do hardcore DIY jobs or using it for work for anything more than screws, drilling in wood or steel or even sometimes masonry like I do it's perfect for the job. It's smaller than professional bosch or makita line and it has a little led light which helps a lot at times.

If I had to buy one again I wouldn't hesitate to pay full price at b&q of £87

Strange, I have had mine for four years and it can go months in between use then used loads and yet still both batteries are going strong. I am biting at this price as you can never have too many cordless drills!
Gone for this cheers OP. My 14 year old cordless Dewalt packed up the other day so this is an ideal replacement.
