Ryobi 18V 1/2″ Compact Brushed Drill P215 P215K P215K1

Ryobi has a new cordless 18V drill, the 1/2″ Compact Brushed Drill known as the P215 (baretool), as P215K as a kit with a black/budget 1.5ah compact battery and budget charger for $79 and P215K1 as a kit with two black/budget 1.5ah compact batteries and budget charger for $99.

The new Ryobi 18V drill is a compact drill. No length measurements were listed as I’m sure it wont be as short in length as the top drills today but it’s still compact and yet strong with a rated 500 in-lbs torque. It uses a 1/2″ plastic chuck that doesn’t ratchet and includes an LED light just like all modern cordless tools. It has all the usual Ryobi amenities like magnetic mag tray and bit holder below the handle and the handle has the new slimmed down ergonomic grip with rib notches for your fingers.

Overall it looks like a great option for the Ryobi system if you’re not looking for a brushless model. The only thing holding this drill back is the bottom of the barrel batteries and charger that’s included in the kits. While the batteries aren’t that bad and at least you’re getting a compact lithium battery, the included batteries are their black/budget models that don’t have a fuel gauge to let you know how much runtime is left and the included budget charger is one of the slowest you can get in the Ryobi system.

This new Ryobi 18V drill can also be found in several combo kits as well such as the P1816 with circ saw, P1817 with impact driver, P1818 4 tool combo kit and P1819 6 tool combo kit.
