Deal Details

Amazon [amazon.com] has the DeWALT DCB204-2 20V MAX XR 4.0 Amp Hour Lithium Ion Battery 2-Pack for $97.99 after $20 off through the Dewalt Father's Day promotion ($20 off $100; applied during checkout) and free shipping. According to 3C, this is the lowest price yet for a new 2-pack on Amazon (which was $109.00 on Nov 26, 2013) .

The DeWalt battery pack features two DCB204 20V MAX XR Li-Ion 4Ah batteries which are currently DeWalt's highest capacity/most advanced batteries. I ordered the pack earlier today and used my $5 Amazon 1Button App credit from this thread to bring the total down to $92.99--YMMV.

Alternatively, FactoryAuthorizedOutlet [factoryauthorizedoutlet.com] (in Cali) also has the DeWALT DCB204-2 for the same price (after $20.00 Dewalt Father's Day promotion) with free shipping.

A similar deal for a 2-pack of Ryobi P108 4Ah Li-Ion batteries for pretty much the same price made it to the frontpage in the middle of April. Thought at that time that the Ryobi 4Ah batteries could not be beat as far as price was concerned. Well, I will return the Ryobi pack that I bought then in favor of the DCB204-2.

Are you asking about which is a better deal on the batteries or which tools the batteries operate are better?

Is Dewalt better than Black and Decker you mean? Generally speaking, yes. But it of course depends what you want to do with your tools and what particular model you selected. So which Black and Decker (drill/driver?) and Dewalt 20V (drill/driver?) are you referring to?

I bought the "Black & Decker LDX220SBFC 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver with Fast Charger " on amazon with the fathers day deal for 62$ incl taxes.

Personally this is not for heavy duty usage.

But i was wondering if paying more than 200$ for the dewalt driver is worth it or should i stick with the black and decker

Actually i was asking about Dewalt Drill-Driver sytem as a whole against Black and Decker.

How much is the difference in quality

The Black and Decker will feel like a toy compared to the Dewalt. There is much more power and torque with th Dewalt. If you only use it occasionally then the Black and Decker will be more than adequate.

Well, the closest comparable entry-level drill in the Dewalt 20V lineup is probably the DCD771 which is selling in a kit (DCD771C2) at Home Depot for $99. It has a 1/2" chuck, 15-position clutch, higher RPM, probably higher torque, and likely better build quality (with a 3-year warranty). Comes with two 1.3Ah (rather than one 1.5Ah) compact batteries, (comparably slower) charger, and a kit bag. I don't think that there are any 3/8" chuck drills in the Dewalt 20V Max line, only in the 12V Max one. The DCD771C2 kit might be all you need. Having said that, it sounds to me that the Black & Decker would work well for you.

Why $200, though? Not sure if you would need/want to load up on high-capacity batteries if you were going the DCD771 route. So you might be looking at $99+tax versus $63.

Actually, I can't tell if the DCD771C2 kit comes with two 1.3Ah or two 1.5Ah batteries. Found it listed both ways at various online outlets.

Build quality and material choice can very widely for Black & Decker. Some feel and look like toys. Others tools are very nice and have nice rubberized exterior... Black & Decker, Porter Cable, and Dewalt are all owned by Black and Decker Stanley.

Black & Decker is aimed at consumers.

Porter Cable is aimed at cabinet makers

Dewalt is aimed at contractors.

I personally prefer Porter Cable because it has a high quality feel, but a low price (especially if you buy them refurb). You can get on sale an impact and drill + 2 batteries and a charger for $95.

4Ah batteries last a looong time. Honestly most consumers don't need these extended runtime batteries. We're talking the juice to drive in 250-500 screws.

I've been debating on the Dewalt line of Drill/Impact Combos's and the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Drill/Impact Combo's.

Milwaukee by far has the most power and long battery life, but also cost a bit more.

Dewalt has different models of drills in different combo's.

But going "Brushless" seems to give both brand some serious power and much longer run time.

I was going to get a Ridgid combo due to the Lifetime warranty in the tool plus battery, but further research point to me that Ridgid really makes it much harder for you to earn that Lifetime warranty. Example... many who have bad batteries much ship/return the Drill / Tool plus the Charger and the batteries to Ridgid or it's service centers. Instead of just send the battery only. You have to pay shipping both ways. Making you work much harder to get the Lifetime Warranty.

Dewalt has too many different model number drills, each has it flaws and when it's in a combo set, you really have to look at the model of each of the tool in the set. If you don't, you might be getting a lower end drill mix with the higher end impact or be getting all lower end tools all together.

I want to take advantage of the Amazon extra $20 off $100 Dewalt tools. That's basically an addition 20% off during checkout. For those in CA, that covers our State Tax plus 10% for our purchase.

I'd go with the base model DeWalt before the B&D. But if you are just looking at occaisional use, I'd stick with the smaller batteries. No use to shell out the cash for these large capacity ones if you aren't going to be using them.
