    small but really handy
    I just purchased this today, and i already put together a little shelf. For a little cordless screwdriver it is pretty strong, 6 volts. It has rubber grips, holds 4 alkaline batteries, and is about 2 lbs. The only bad thing about this is that it doesn't have a magnet inside the nose so when you pull out sometimes, it makes the bit come out of the nose.

    Easy to use, and really handy


    Needs a magnet in the nose

    Small but Worthy
    I purchased this model for one specific reason and that was for the alkaline battery vrs the lithium in other models. You can always install some AA and you are ready to go. I had a previous model that didn't allow the battery to be replaced and had to trash it. This model does a good job on simple projects and should last many years.

    Good enough for simple jobs. Replaceable AA batteries. Very good price.


    non so far.

    LOVE THIS!!!
    was bought after I helped move a family member that has one. we used it to put a desk together and hand shleves and such. worked great all day

    great grip for women. light enough to use over head but strong enough to hang shelves on the wall.

    Quick and Easy
    We needed an easy tool to use on smaller quick jobs. This tool fits the bill at a great price.

    Plenty of power, ready to go whenever you need you need it. I also like the grip.

    A great tool if used for the proper job
    I use it professionally. I will add I seldom use it for slot head screws but almost exclusively on M3 fasteners

    Replaceable batteries and low torque for the small size fasteners I use it for. Low cost for when tool finally does wear out is cheap to replace.


    can't think of any at the moment

    Quick and simple driver
    Great to keep in the kitchen drawer for those simple projects.

    Have a set of different bits that can be used from small Phillips to torque and others.


    The batteries don't give it a lot of power, just enough.

    Great for small jobs, that don't happen very often!!!
    This is a AA Battery powered screwdriver that offers a good amount of power. Its portable, easy to use and pretty inexpensive.

    You don't have to wait to recharge it!!! Just need a fresh set of AA batteries. I have this thrown in a drawer at work, and when I need it, it works! Usually I don't use it that often and have only changed the battery once in three years! I like that it can sit for months and still work. The Alkaline batteries don't seem to drain when not in use.


    There are two minor issue I have; one is the bits have to be the longer ones, rather than the inexpensive short ones. (due to it comes with a sloted bit and the other side is a philips bit), second is its slow, would have prefered it being a little quicker on screwing or variable speed (but this would have increased cost)

    not used very often
    does what you would expect but not strong enought to do most jobs. So you usually grab the better tool all the time and this tool never gets used.

    lightweight and portable


    not enough power to do big does so its limited in its use.

    Great Tool
    I use this tool for many small projects. Works great and has more power than one might expect.

    East to operate, simple battery power. Batteries last a long time in this tool.


    There's nothing I would change about this item.
