    Solid, powerful drill, August 15, 2010
    By 
    Amadeuz (Austin, TX USA) –

    This review is from: DEWALT DC720KA Cordless 18-Volt Compact Drill/Driver (Tools & Home Improvement)

    As a matter of full disclosure, I am using this drill as a DIY homeowner on minor projects. This drill was my upgrade into the world of pro-grade power tools from a cheapo 14.4V Black & Decker drill. I upgraded primarily because I was frustrated by having to drill pilot holes for lag screws all the time due to the lack of power. Furthermore, my former so-called variable speed drill only had two speeds, namely 400 or 800 rpm, nothing in between so I was constantly stripping screw heads. After doing some serious research into Makita, Milwaukee, Hitachi, and Dewalt, I chose Dewalt. Why? Because of the power and construction of the tool. Dewalt uses its own measurement of torque (Unit Watts Out) whereas most other companies list max torque in ft-lbs. In my opinion, I best equate UWO to the amplifier rating in audio receivers. In receivers, many companies list their amplifier rating with only one channel driven. Rarely do companies list amplifier rating with all channels driven. UWO, to me, is Dewalt’s real world sustained torque rating like all channels driven in an amplifier. So for this drill, although Dewalt lists it at 410 UWO, I think this probably equates to nearly peak torque of at least 450 ft lbs if not more. Also, I really liked the fact that Dewalt uses all-metal gears and it has solid magnet construction in its motor.

    For whatever reason, although most companies have wholeheartedly embraced the Lion technology, Dewalt has chose to slowly move into it and, thus, still has a large portion of tools with NiCd batteries. I really debated about the whole NiCd v Lion thing. But really, for my purposes, I doubt I will be using the drill so much that I will use up 2 batteries. I really think having a back-up battery negates the charge time issue. Of course there’s the weight issue, but again, for me, a difference in weigh of 6-8 oz is not a game breaker.

    The closest drill to the DC720KA was the Hitachi DS18DSAL. Really solidly constructed drill with good power. Unfortunately, from a purely superficial standpoint, the Hitachi looks like a toy with the green molding. So I went with the Dewalt. In terms of real world performance, really happy so far. Was able to drill 2″ long – 1/8″ dia. screws into studs without a pilot, no problem. This sucker has power. Really like the LED light. The added heft of the NiCd gives the drill really good balance. Trigger felt right and was able to modulate speed very accurately (true variable speed!). I hope this review helps because other reviews just seem to spout off Dewalt sucks or “it’s not lithium so it sucks” type comments.

    A bit overrated…., March 7, 2009
    This review is from: DEWALT DC720KA Cordless 18-Volt Compact Drill/Driver (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I’m a contractor and our company specializes in erecting condos so we are more than familiar with our power tools. When I first started my job I invested in this DeWalt drill since EVERYONE has one. After using it for a while I feel that it is not all that it is hopped up to be, the battery life sucks and I had to replace the battery after a couple months because it stopped holding its charge. After trying out others I would recommend Makita for the price and performance, also do stay away from Ryobi that brand of power tools is a joke (I would get it for my learning teen but not for professional use).

    hi, I have a hitachi eb2420 battery that only lasts about an hour after a full charge, is it safe to use this method or does it have to be totally dead as in not holding any charge at all?

    • disslip12321

    I have a very old makita drill would this work for that if the battery doesn’t hold a charge

    Some said they used a car battery charger.

    what do you use if you have not got two spare batterys to do

    • dial2fast

    I recommend about double the voltage and make sure the power source is high current.

    What volt battery would you use for to rejuvenate a 14.4v ? Do you have to use the same volt or more volts

    Think you can help?
    I hooked up 4 and then 5 9v batteries to try to jumpstart my airsoft gun battery, takes 14V to charge Ni-Cad, and zapped it like 5 times didnt do anything, still dead. did it like 20 times, nothing. every time it droppes from 34-11-.02-0 in a half a second. Can anyone help?

    can I use two lithium batteries to be the power source for my ni-cad batteries?

    Before i get called a BS because my method might not work first time. stick to trying it. Always attach the neg wire before the live so it shocks batt when the live goes on. Im in the megaheavy-haulage business.. we drill holes in tyres just to deflate them for the terrain change or tight turns coz they dont deflate fast enough via the valve. Drill them or shoot them is our option. Im from scotland and since guns aren’t allowed its obviously an excuse to buy a massive as fuck drill 🙂

    not the same method for li-ions but similar.

    Thanks for the vid. I got a 14.4v battery going this way so tried Li ions. They can be done a better way. If you put a working li-ion battery in the charger and when its charging slide a wire between the charger and battery then link it to a goosed battery it charges both to max capacity. works with the dewalt fast charger good. The makita fast charger picks up a fault..tried it repeatedly and it eventually fell for it. If it dont work try smaller gauge wire n make sure the batt Amp similar 🙂

    Don’t do it on Lithium ion batteries.

    Can you do the same for makita lithium ion batterys?
