Awesome product, the quick charge time is a huge plus.

It is useful anytime I have a quick and simple screw to insert or remove.

Needless to say, I'd use a hand tool to accomplish the job.

This cordless screwdriver functions just as advertised. You can charge it to full-power in 60 seconds or less and it delivers an impressive amount of torque. It also feels reasonably rugged. The fact that it uses rechargeable capacitors instead of batteries is especially handy for the occasional user because you never have to worry about the charge being too low or the batteries being dead. You also don't have to keep it constantly charged, which occupies a wall outlet and wastes electricity. You don't even have to worry about replacing the capacitors: They're good for hundreds of thousands of charge cycles.

The one thing to keep in mind is that it's large. It measures 28cm (11 inches) long, not including the driver tip, and it's 4.5cm (1-3/4") in diameter, not including the power switch. It's also straight, which would make it difficult to use in tight spaces. This may be obvious to most from looking at the picture, but may be less obvious to someone who doesn't use power tools that often. As long as you're clear on what it can and can't do you should be very happy with it.

This is a pretty good tool to have. It charges quick so there is no waiting to get your project done.

I did have a few issue with mine.

1. Mine did not come with the bit set. Which is no big deal for me since I have 100's of bits for this thing that come from other tools.

2. The forward and reverse button on this thing is very cheap. My forward button did not work at all. I took it apart and fix it myself instead of returning it. The button uses a plastic rocker which pushes down two pieces of copper on each side to make the connection with the contacts on the PCB. I had to bend the copper strips a little to get it working.

3. While working on the switch problem I found that the copper traces on the PCB were cracked causing an open connection. I figured this might be part of my problem with the forward not working. Well I soldered a bridge onto the PCB. I found two other copper traces that appeared to have started to crack. I bridged them with solder also.

4. The charging contacts on the bottom of the tool ARE NOT SHIELDED! So do not store this tool in your tool box with other metal tools. If you manage to get a metal tool to short the two charging contacts you will get sparks, smoke, heat, and if your touching the metal tool at the time you may get a good shock. This is a very bad design flaw in my opinion.

This tool definitely needs a torque setting to keep from stripping screws.

I don't think I would buy this again unless these flaws were fixed.

Ok, I've owned this baby for a few weeks and only had to charge it once. So, this review is more in the flavor of a rave on the technology rather than a review on this item.

The selling point for this gizmo is that it does NOT use batteries. Instead there are a bank of super capacitors within the handle that can be charged in seconds.

The screwdriver came mostly discharged. I plugged it into the base and within the advertised 90 seconds, it was at full charge. I used it to disassemble an old computer 6 screws, remove a hard drive (4 screws), close up the case with no hard drive (tossing the computer) so another 6 screws driven in. That was several weeks ago and I can still drive screws. I don't know how rapidly it dies so the next time I attempt to remove a screw it might die. Probably, unlike batteries, it crashes hard from one second to the next.

I've got to say, this is a gift from the gods for folks like me who only use a cordless screwdriver once every few months. If it lives up to its specs, I should be able to come upon it fully discharged in 6 months time and recharge it in 90 seconds. How totally cool is that?

This screwdriver is replacing the venerable Black & Decker cordless. I really liked that one cause it had removable batteries. But I often found myself in need of a screwdriver and would discover that this tool was totally discharged and that I'd have to spend hours recharging a battery. Needless to say, I'd use a hand tool to accomplish the job.

I'll revisit this review should I reform my opinion of this thing in the future. For instance, if it starts to let me down and fail, I'll certainly post that as an updated review.

If you are not looking for a drill, you will love this screwdriver. If you have owned a battery-powered screwdriver before, you will love this screwdriver. That's all you need to know! Comes with a nice bit set that is part of the charging base.

It weighs about the same as my old screwdriver with the battery removed. The ultra capacitor weighs next to nothing.

It really does charge completely in 90 seconds! The "battery" life might be shorter than a battery, but who cares if you can recharge it that fast. You won't need to keep the charger plugged in all the time, so you won't have the cost of the electricity for keeping it turned on (the standby power).

We gave it an abusive test. Under fully charged condition, we drove eight 3" screws into oak (with pilot hole) before it started to slow down. This is more than what it is designed for. Mostly we have used it for putting things together. Because it is not a drill, and is designed to be a screwdriver, it is much less likely to damage your screws. It's especially nice for home electrical projects.

Update 6-26-12. Still works great! Only using it occasionally, keeps a charge for weeks! Always ready to go. Love it!
