A reader wrote in about new sale pricing on the Bosch 12V Max brushless FlexiClick modular drill/drive kit. (Thank you diaphanaus for the tip!)
The brushless Bosch flexiclick is $149 on Amazon – the same price as the brushed version. Thought that is a deal worth passing along.
The kit is indeed on sale at Amazon right now, at $149, and the shipping ETA is currently quoted as February 12th, 2021. As additional units get sold, that ETA will likely be pushed back further.
Update 2/4/21: The kit is back in stock and with a 1-2 day shipping ETA.
The Bosch Flexi-Click, I’m sorry – the Bosch Chameleon – features a drill/drive base handle and modular attachments that allow it to access fasteners in right or obstructed spaces.
If you want to price-shop around, look for model number GSR12V-300FCB22. At this time, this kit is $229 everywhere outside of Amazon.
Regular Price: $229
Sale Price: $149

Also See the Competition:
The Milwaukee brushless installation drill/driver has a better attachment system, in my opinion, but it’s hard to beat Bosch’s cheaper pricing.
I prefer the Milwaukee M12 system better than Bosch’s brushed motor 12V Max FlexiClick kit. I have not tested the 12V or 18V brushless FlexiClick/Chameleon models.
Dewalt’s 12V Max Xtreme cordless screwdriver beats any Bosch Flexi-Click/Chameleon or standalone driver that I have tried, and I tend to prefer the Dewalt over the Milwaukee as well when there aren’t any obstructions to work around.
I don’t think I’ve used any Bosch 12V Max drill or driver ever since the Dewalt Xtreme system hit the market.
Surprisingly, the Dewalt cordless screwdriver is still $89. CPO has it for $89 and free shipping on $99+ orders. Or you can get it for $92 via Amazon with free shipping.
Metabo also has a modular-head cordless drill/screwdriver kit as well. This kit is priced at $153 at Amazon.
