The PS20-2A gets its power from Litheon batteries, the most advanced lithium-ion batteries available today. These batteries allow more battery charges and provide longer runtime with no memory effect–meaning the batteries don’t need to be empty before charging. The batteries can also be taken out of the charger before charging is complete.

Other benefits include: significantly less self discharge; electronic cell protection that guards against overheating, overload, and deep discharge; and no loss of power from the first to last screw or hole. Best of all, these batteries will fully charge in 30 minutes and will be at 85% capacity in just 15 minutes.

Compact & Lightweight Design

Its compact design makes it easier to drill straight holes at high and otherwise odd angles, allowing you to accomplish a day’s worth of professional drill/driving tasks without excessive fatigue. You can also carry the tool in your pocket, hang it on your tool belt, or keep it in a nail pouch when you’re climbing ladders or moving from task to task.

Ergonomics and Soft Grips for Long-Term Comfort

Bosch PS20-2ABesides its light weight, the PS20-2A boasts great ergonomics and soft grips to deliver comfort over extended periods, giving you the freedom to work all day without over-taxing your wrists and hands. And it’s easy to keep bits handy, thanks to the tool’s “Clic-Change” bit holder, which also makes 1/4-inch hex shank bit changes quick and easy. Additionally, the chuck is magnetized to secure locking bits.

High Torque and Fast Speeds

This powerful tool provides over 100 in./lbs. of torque, which is about 25% more torque than comparable models for ultra-efficient driving and drilling. It drives 100 three-inch screws (per battery charge) and drill holes up to 1/2-inch in diameter. The PS20-2A also offers variable speeds up to 500 RPM–25% more speed for fast, reliable results.

10+1 Clutch with Max Setting for Improved Control

The 10+1 clutch system, similar to that of standard drills/drivers, offers 10 drives and one “Max” drill setting for control and precision, while eliminating over-torque in soft-base materials. The Max setting also allows for pilot and other small bore holes. For added convenience, the 10+1 controls are conveniently located at the front of the drill, so it’s a snap to make quick adjustments.

Variable-Speed Trigger and Forward/Reverse Button for Precision and Versatility

The PS20-2A drills up to 3/8 inch in wood and 1/4 inch in steel. To help ensure high-quality results, the variable-speed trigger provides sensitivity and control for optimum precision. And for added versatility, there’s a forward/reverse button for driving or removing screws.

User-Friendly and Durable for Hassle-Free Drilling and Driving

A motor brake features an improved design for serial screwing, while a metal clutch ring has a robust design for long-term durability. There’s also an LED to illuminate dark or enclosed areas while you work.
