Milwaukee 2650-21 Review
Milwaukee 2650-21 Strengths & Weaknesses:
| ||82 B||B||B||A||C||C||Price|
|Design|| ||Acceptable Design - While this driver has one or more design features that received a C rating, it can still be a good choice if that area is not critical to your particular needs.|
|Power|| ||Below Average Power - Delivers up to 1400 in-lbs of torque, about 1% less than the class average. Power can sometimes be traded for weight or cost.|
|Speed|| ||Below Average Speed - Generates up to 2200 RPM, about 14% slower than the average impact driver. The Milwaukee 2650-21 ranks in the bottom 4% of its class for speed.|
|Weight||√||Light-Weight - Weighs only 3.2 lbs, about 12% lighter than the average impact driver. Ranks in the top 13% of its class for being light-weight.|
|Battery|| ||Below Average Run-Time - Battery endurance is adequate for many work applications, but is 32% less than the class average. Uses Li-ion batteries with a charge rating of 1.5 Ah.|
|Impact||√||High Impact Rate - Delivers up to 3200 IPM of blows, about 2% higher than the average impact driver. Ranks in the top 40% of its class for impact rate.|
|User Reviews|| ||Less Satisfied Users - 25 users rate this impact driver 3.8 out of 5 stars and are less satisfied with its operation. Users generally rate this driver average to below average.|
|Power Ratio||√||High Power-to-Weight - Ranks in the top 15% of its class for power-to-weight ratio, about 15% higher than average. Higher power-to-weight indicates an efficient design.|
|Gearbox|| ||Nylon Gears - Transmission includes at least some nylon gears that may need replacing after years of extended use. A nylon gearbox helps reduce driver weight.|
|Motor Brushes|| ||No External Access - The motor brushes can only be accessed internally by taking the driver apart. While not a common problem, external access makes the replacement job much easier.|
|Warranty||√||Longer Warranty - Backed by Milwaukee's limited 5-year warranty. This provides extra protection against potential design defects or premature part failure.|
|Charger|| ||Standard Charge Time - The Milwaukee 2650-21 battery charger takes 60 minutes to recharge a battery. Longer charge times are not a big issue if you always have a battery back-up.|

|Work Light||√||Work Light - Contains an integrated LED work light that illuminates your work area and allows you to clearly see your driving position and progress.|
