The New Black+Decker Cordless Drill/Driver with AutoSense™ Technology Prevents Accidental Over-Tightening of Screws and Potentially Damaging Finished Surfaces
By Mark J. Donovan
In this video Mark Donovan of HomeAdditionPlus.com reviews the Black+Decker 20V Lithium Ion Cordless Drill/Driver, Model Number BDCDE120C.
Whether you’re renting an apartment or own a home one of the most useful tools to have in your toolbox is a cordless drill/driver. There are unlimited applications for this type of tool. A cordless drill/driver makes tightening screws or drilling holes fast and easy. Moreover, it also prevents hand fatigue.
Fortunately, Black+Decker has eliminated this trial and error issue associated with mechanical clutches in cordless drill/drivers by replacing it with a new smart auto-sensing clutch technology called AutoSense™. I recently had the opportunity to test out their latest cordless 20V Lithium Ion drill/driver with this AutoSense™ technology and was extremely impressed.
The BDCDE120C Cordless 20V Lithium Ion drill/driver is both compact and lightweight, yet has the power and toque for any homeowner application. It also has an over-mold handle for ensuring a solid grip and control. But again, what really makes this a cool tool is its intuitive AutoSense™ technology. With the AutoSense™ feature the tool has two modes of operation, drill and drive. In drive mode, an onboard microprocessor monitors the changing torque profile of the tool as the screw enters the material and stops the screw flush with the material within 3 milliseconds. The tool also includes a micro adjustment depth control feature to countersink screws to the desired level.
In the drill mode, the tool’s 0-800 RPM motor ensures the necessary performance for the fast drilling of any homeowner application.
Also impressive with the AutoSense™ clutch technology is how it enables the drill/driver to be so much lighter and streamlined. Other drill/drivers with the traditional mechanical clutch assemblies are much heavier and bulkier.
The BDCDE120C Cordless 20V Lithium Ion Drill/Driver also includes an integrated battery status indicator to let the user know when the battery needs recharging, and an LED work light on the foot of the unit to illuminate the work surface area.
The BDCDE120C Cordless 20V Lithium Ion Drill/Driver comes with a charger and a 20V Max lithium ion battery, which can hold a charge up to 18 months. The battery is also part of an interchangeable system from Black+Decker that enables it to work with other 20V Max lithium Ion home products and power tools that they manufacturer. As of this writing, the unit retails for $79.99 and can be purchased at various home improvement stores around the country, as well as on Amazon.com. It also comes with a 2 year limited warranty.
So whether a renter or a homeowner, the BLACK+DECKER LDX120C 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill/Driver is a must tool to have. With its unique AutoSense™ clutch technology it will ensure the job is done right every time when it comes to tightening screws and drilling holes. Also, its compact size and light weight makes it the perfect drill/driver tool for anyone.
