Was given one as a gift Fathers Day 3 years ago. With less than 1.0 hours of use time the motor quit. Since it was a gift I was not aware of 3 year Provantage so was not covered. I bought a new one because it was $60.00 cheaper than having the old one repaired. This time I have Provantage.

smokes and motor burned up after light use
purchased this tool bout 3 years ago. Light duty home owner use, tool probably got 15 h of work time when the motor burned up. Of course, the tool is now out of warranty and I am the idiot that has to pay. I am super disappointed since I've bought a higher end tool for my house on purpose to not have to replace it after 3 years. This very much makes me question the durability of Bosch power tools.

Motor Burnt Out Under Light Use
Bought my DDB181-02 cordless drill around June 2017, and only used it for light DIY jobs around the house. No heavy/excessive construction usage. I was thoroughly impressed with how well this driver worked, until yesterday.

I was drilling into a standard wood 2x4 stud behind 1/2" drywall with a new, sharp titanium 1/4" drill bit, when the motor started sparking like crazy. This was followed by a brief electrical "flame-out", then acrid electrical smoke, then it died completely.

Tried to file a warranty claim, but of course, it's just past the 1-year warranty, and they require an original purchase receipt (yeah right, who still has that after a year?!. I'm incredibly disappointed. I bought a Bosch cordless driver specifically because of the longevity and quality I've seen in the one my dad has had for over 20 years, yet this one almost caught my garage on fire. I just bought a 1/2" drive cordless impact wrench from Bosch because I liked this one so much, and now I'm worried that one will just burn out after normal use too.

While only a week into a relationship with this drill, my 1st impressions are that I will be with this little dynamo for a while. The compact size, the impressive build, appropriate features are all good, but confidence in the tool comes from using it. It is smooth, powerful, easy to handle. Of course time will tell if it and its batteries are built to last, but one week in and it is already my go-to drill.

I purchased this DDB181-02 cordless drill in November 2017 and just being over a year old I was using the drill when the motor started sparking inside when this bad smell of electrical burning started, then it just quit working.
Seriously, I had/have a cheaper made drill that has out lasted this thing

Great Drill - However
I love this drill. Well balanced, plenty of power and battery lasts very long. However after 2 years of use the drill is now sparking inside everytime I stop the drill. Not sure if it is the motor brushes or brake mechanism.

This is the second refurbished DDB 181 I purchased from Bosch. The first one was purchased about 15 months ago and has performed flawlessly. My current purchase is being used in a marine environment and so far it’s performing as it should. Great product!

Chuck Stuck
I purchased my first drill two years ago and it's worked great .... until a month ago. The chuck is "shut" tight and I can't open it to remove my bit. Tried everything. Other reviews have complained about the same thing. However, now I have two Bosch drills .... I bought another one because I liked the first one so much. Would like to fix the chuck....then I would have two "working" drills. .

Does DDB181-02 18v come with 2.0 amp hour or 1.5 amp hour batteries - copy states both contradictorily
per11911 on Feb 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I received my set near the end of June, 2015. It came with two 1.5 ah batteries. I was very pleased since I was primarily going to use the drill with my pocket hole jig. I am an avid hobbyist so it will not get that much use.
What is the battery and charger number that comes with this drill and are they compatible with other tools?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Model DDB181-02 will include the BAT612- battery and the charger with the kit will be the BC1880. The items are compatible with other 18 Volt items.
