You may think an electric screwdriver is a bit gimmicky but this example from Laser Tools (part number 7985) will change your mind and end up being your screwdriver of choice, it’s so versatile and convenient!

It’s a compact, comfortable (rubber-coated handle) electric screwdriver that is packed with features. It uses a quick-chuck and is supplied with a quick-chuck bit holder and 8 25mm long 1/4″-drive bits: PzDrive Pz0, Pz1, Pz2 and Pz3; flat 7mm and Torx® T15, T20 and T25. The screwdriver is powered by a Li-ion 3.6V 900MAH battery which is rechargeable through a USB socket on a PC or USB adaptor. Charge time is just 60 minutes which gives an operating time of approximately 40 minutes. Red light – charging, green light – fully charged. USB charging cable included.

The initial torque using electric power only is set to 3Nm to prevent over-tightening of screw fixings but for unscrewing, up to 15Nm can be applied manually. An LED torch comes on automatically when in use keeping the job illuminated which is useful in the dark, difficult to access areas.

This is a high-quality, high-performance electric screwdriver and a worthy addition to any toolbox — available now from your Laser Tools stockist and typically priced at £83.35 (price includes VAT). Always remember to check for the best prices and special offers.
