One of Bosch’s recent offerings, the IDH182-01, has gained quite a following. Those who’ve used it are praising it for all sorts of reasons, but mainly for its:

  • Performance Control System
  • LED Lighting
  • Brushless Motor
  • Superb Ergonomics

In your case though, will these really matter? Read on to learn more about them and find out whether Bosch’s highly-praised impact driver is what you’re looking for. (Read: Best Impact Drivers 2017 )

Performance Control System

This new Bosch impact driver is very easy to use because of its higher torque. This is very convenient in removing big or small screws fast because of its performance control system which allows you to select 3 different speed and torque settings to maximize power.

LED Light System

This LED light system offers greater convenience than other versions because of its switch. An LED light saves more electricity than any other type of lighting system. And it makes more sense to have a switch because an automatic lighting system just consumes more battery power.

Brushless motor technology

This new technology prolongs the motor life of the driver. Not only does it just prolong the life but maintains its high quality from the start, making it a very cost-effective choice for those people who prefer durability.

Advanced Electronics

It is composed of both electronic motor and cell protection which help prevent overheating and overloading during long hours of use. Overheating eventually slows down the motor system of a driver. And overloading does affect the overall quality of the driver resulting to a shorter life span.

Superior Ergonomics

This new technology enables the user to maximize their smallest grip diameter for maximum control. Maximizing the smallest grip diameter ensures stability, balance, and comfort.

Socket-Ready Chuck

You can change from ¼ inch to ½ inch depending on what type of work you’re using this for. It’s stress-free because it’s an all-in-one tool and it doesn’t need constant changing.


This driver is lighter compared to the other Bosch driver versions. Most drivers require muscle for control, stability, and balance which is only suitable for people who are muscular and fit.

Electricity usage

The voltage required for this driver is 18 volts and that’s not bad for a high quality tool.

The Verdict

To sum it all up, this Bosch Impact Driver provides control, stability, and balance. It features the first socket-ready adapter in the industry. It’s a cost-effective product that is available for long-term use with little or no maintenance. As also said, it isn’t susceptible to overheating and overloading because of its brushless motor technology and advanced electronics (composed of electronic motor and cell protection).

It is a product that is very comfortable to use, with its smallest grip diameter design for maximum control. It is also suited for everyone, even for those with easily-strained arms. After all, it weighs less than its previous versions. More importantly though, it energy-conserving feature affects quality and durability – as well as your finances.

So, is the IDH182-01 what you’ve been looking for? Well, it probably is.
