What People Didn’t Like
There were only a few negative impact driver reviews about this cordless impact driver:
No battery level indicator. Unlike other cordless impact drivers, this one does not come with a gauge to tell you how much battery power is left. This may be offset by the fact that the driver comes with 2 Li-Ion batteries standard so you can always have one charging.
The travel bag isn’t equipped with extra pockets to stow extra bits, cords, battery chargers, etc.
Impact driver reviews were very positive for the DEWALT 12-Volt Max 1/4-Inch Impact Driver and for the money, it comes with a lot of nice features like a belt clip, reverse option, LED lighting and an extra battery.
