This 18v cordless drill driver is targeted at the home handy person that wants a compact yet powerful drill/screw driver combo. It is in this home use context that I am reviewing the product.

Product Review

Ozito Power X Change 18V Brushless Drill Driver PXBDS-220

I love this compact yet powerful cordless drill. It is nice to not have to get my corded power drill out for 99% of the jobs around the house and garden. It weighs a mere 1.1kg (~2.42lb) and that means less fatigue if you are drilling a lot or at a funny angle or in tight spaces.

I have had my old PXDDS-200 for over 4 years and it performs as advertised every time. It never failed me, still hasn’t, and feels good in the hand. I still use it when I need two different drills bits and or a phillips head for a job and don’t want to stop to swap bits out.

This brushless drill driver impressed me as soon as I put the battery in and pressed the trigger. It felt familiar but more powerful, faster revving and stronger built.

I ran a battery length comparison against my old Ozito 18v Drill Driver PXDDS-200 by emptying a full battery in both skins.  It was without any drill bits in the chuck and trigger fully depressed.

The brushless model lasted only a few minutes longer (~40 minutes) but considering it has much higher RPMs and torque than the old model I consider that quite a deal maker.  By my logic you can now do more work with the same battery.

Here is the unboxing and several pictures comparing it against my old PXDDS-200 (which is always on the right).

The unit feels really good in the hand.

Here is me using the brushless drill driver to install a door seal. Note that I had the direction of rotation wrong initially but changed it easily without needing to use my other hand.

My Likes:

  • Good looking unit that feels good in the hands thanks to rubberised grip.
  • 2 speed gearbox with variable trigger
  • The rotation direction switch can be operated with one hand.
  • Internal gearing sounds and feels strong and the trigger gives you precise speed control.
  • Sturdy metal non-keyed chuck that takes a 13mm drill bit.
  • Much higher torque and RPM than previous model.
  • 21 settings for driving and final setting for drilling.
  • Uses a fast charging battery common to the rest of the range.
  • 5 year warranty.

My Dislikes:

  • None

My Manufacturer Feedback:

  • A lock on button/switch would be nice.

Final Thoughts:

This is a great product at a reasonable price. Suitable for the home handy person or hobbyist that wants a quality product that doesn’t cost an arm or a leg.

I think the unit is brilliant and that is saying something as I still think highly of my old Ozito drill driver with the brushed electric motor. I don’t expect to have to use it but the 5 year warranty gives me peace of mind.

I hope this review helps. Feel free to send me any comments if you want to add to the review.

Enjoy,

  1. The drill can spin in both left and right directions, so it drill is designed to be used in both Northern and Southern Hemispheres ?
