Rated 1 out of 5 by LexXor Poor charging system design.
I've had this tool for about 4 years now and the most annoying thing about it is the charging system.
Like most reviews on here, the charge base does not shut-off/go on stand-by when the battery is fully charged. It is a hassle to keep a timer on the charger; sometimes I forget about it. A new base with the automatic on/off or stand-by features need to be added to remedy this issue.
Performance wise, I haven't really had any major issues with it. Sockets have trouble staying on so I would have to hold the socket down; makes for a slow work environment.
All in all, this kit is pretty expensive for having so many flaws. There are better options out there. In this day and age, these types of issues shouldn't be issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Good Enough but not quality
This impact wrench did what I needed it to do but has a major fail point in that the sockets do not stay on the driver. There is a rubber o-ring instead of a spring load ball bearing snap that is "supposed" to hold the socket on the driver. The sockets just fall right off the driver and you actually have to hold the sockets in place until you get it on the nut you are trying to drive/remove. Really a poor system!

Rated 1 out of 5 by anonymous1234 This product has a terrible battery
I would not buy this impact wrench. It would not loosen the lug nuts on my trailer. The battery life is terrible! The charger requires the battery to be removed within 3 hours or it damages the battery. These characteristics are terrible for the casual user like myself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JC9316 Does The Job For The Value
Pros: Value, Volt Capacity, Simple
Cons: Poorly designed charging base.
Metal stripes at the base of the charger that charges the battery bent. Had to rebend stripes so that the battery makes contact for charging.
Have to monitor charge time. Charging base does not have a safety shutoff when the battery is fully charged.
