[Home Depot] Dewalt Atomic brushless hammer drill/driver and impact driver kit

Not sure if this is considered a good deal. For 229 this includes right angled attachment which itself is 30 bucks. Similar kit without the attachment is priced same at Home Depot as well

Seems like a nice kit for compact and brushless - and the kit includes 1.5AH batteries, not 1.3AH that is commonly bundled with the single tool kits.

The Atomic line is their budget collection. This set competes directly with Ryobi's compact brushless line which is about the same price. It comes down to which battery ecosystem you want to commit yourself to. Checkout the price of replacement batteries, as well as the price/availability of other cordless tools you may be interested in getting in the future to make your decision.

If you need the tools drill/driver, right angle attachment than this is an ok kit if you need it right now, but if you're going to buy this thinking it's more compact/lighter than the "regular" non-atomic line of DeWalt don't bother.



The atomic drill/driver line is a failure as it offers no advantage vs the non-atomic.

Thumbs up for misspelling atomic in the most wonderful way.

Can you use these 'Atomic' batteries with non-Atomic tools?

Absolutely, it's the same batteries.

Damn! A couple days ago, I asked if 779 drill/driver is better than atomic and someone commented saying atomic line is better. I guess there is no universal agreement on which one is better

I wouldn’t say that there’s anything “wrong” with the Atomic line. It seems like the name has a lot of people confused as some think that atomic should mean powerful and some relate it to small and assume it is lightweight. It’s neither of those exactly, but it’s priced well and powerful enough for most people.

Not as hot as the 239.99 deal from Rona last year for the kit and a free tool. I'm sure that promotion will come back soon enough.....

Nope, it's a failure.

DeWalt claims
DESIGNED MORE COMPACT

The ATOMIC 20V MAX* Brushless 2-Tool Combo Kit fits in tight spaces without sacrificing performance. Get the job done with a Drill/Driver designed 25% more compact†† and an Impact Driver that delivers 21% more torque**.
https://www.dewalt.com/products/power-t ... 20v/atomic

They pick and choose what is more powerful and what is more compact and cherry pick the comparison tool, instead of having a standard across the atomic line, so it's not the people being confused but DeWalt doing the confusing.

I've got a lot of DeWalt stuff (as well as other brands) but the atomic line is a cluster ****.

What about the one DCK276C2 sell by Canadian tire?

To add to the "confusion" a standard lithium ion cell is 3.7V. Now, I don't have access to a DeWalt battery to measure but their 20V tools are most likely an 18.5V 5 cell configuration like everyone else's with a generous fudging of the specs to try and make them stand out from the competition.

Kind of reminds me of the 5hp 120V compressors they used to sell.
