The Bosch 37614-01 14.4v cordless drill scores a class best 9.4 overall rating. This is the best 14.4v model we reviewed. It features a best in class 600 in-lbs of torque, which is better than most 18v versions. The lithium-ion batteries provide 2.6 amp hours of charge and only take 30 minutes to recharge.
There are two main negatives with the 37614-01. The first is the weight. It is well above average for its class at 5.3 lbs. The second negative is the price. It is priced in the mid to upper $200′s which is as much as the high performance 18v models.
Since you can’t beat its performance in a 14.4v cordless drill, we recommend this drill, but it will cost you.
