When it comes to cordless drills, an 18-volt model is a must. Anything less just doesn't deliver the power you need. What sets the Makita BHP452HW apart from many other options, however, is that it comes with an Energy Star rated charger.

And according to Makita, all it needs is 15 minutes of charging to reach full capacity. That's about four times faster than most cordless drills. And as one who has had to wait an hour or more for a drill to fully charge, the Makita BHP452HW has set the standard for both performance and energy efficiency.

Warranty

Makita's warranty covers repair due to defects in materials or workmanship up to three years from the date of original purchase. Makita lithium-ion batteries and chargers have a limited 1-year warranty.
