It is safe to assume that any socket/bit not specifically claiming to be impact-rated/resistant etc, should not be used with heavy impacting wrenches.

It is also a good rule of thumb that anything in shiny chrome is probably only for hand-tools. Don't be fooled by "black chrome" shiny finishes tho, look for construction material: chrome sockets are typically Cr-V, which is in general too hard & brittle for impacting guns. Some manufacturers do put out Cr-V tools they claim to be impact resistant and perhaps there are hardening processes that allow that, but in general impact, sockets are most often made out of Cr-Mo steel alloys and are typically finished in that flat black/textured finish, not mirror polished shine. Impact sockets are generally thicker and "tougher", not harder. That allows them to absorb all this energy from the impacting action w/o becoming nearly as brittle as the typical Cr-V socket, that could fracture halfway to that abuse.

Most small screws/bolts won't be torqued enough to matter really, because the motor of the tool will make quick work of un-tightening before hammering/impacting really starts, but as you go above halfway the sizes we see in this kit (say above 8mm hex), there could be issues with the bolt being tight enough, and that is already in the 3/8" size. I would not use any of the 1/2" for heavy impacting.

If you have no other bits, you can ofc use a breaker bar with the socket, just crack loose those larger bolts, and use the power-tool (air or battery) to take it out, in which case no impacting will come to play, or just use them with power ratchets that don't impact.

Good call. Never heard of this brand but cheap China promoted stuff is rampant in SD right now. Need a fact check button for paid promoted stuff, like at least don't be the first or second comments saying I have these and am going to buy more or good deal when it's crap recycled clothes hangers from India.

Would these work well with an impact driver?

Not to be used with impact, could you? Yes, but by design they are not for use with an impact.

I just had one of my DeWalt ones break. It didn't snap. Just fell out the socket. Are these better quality?

yes but if the bolt was seized or super tight and the impact gun is strong enough....
