The Bosch PS21 12-Volt Max Driver has a forward/reverse button, which enables the user to remove screws as easily as drive them. It provides an integrated LED light for improved visibility, allowing operators to work anywhere, anytime, and it is especially useful for dark corners. This bare tool kit comes with an Exact-Fit insert tray, but the battery and charger are sold separately.
Compact driving clout
This driver features a short 5.6-Inch head-length, so it is able to fit into difficult areas and still drive the screw head-on. Its compact size combined with its light weight (less than 2 Lbs.) makes it a smart item to pack when going to jobs that will be in tight quarters, and it's great for continuous overhead work. This tool in fact is one of the lightest 12-Volt drivers on the market.
Durable and convenient
This pocket driver is a durable and well-built item, which could prove to be one of the most-used items in the toolbox. The unit was constructed with Durashield housing – an ABS/nylon composite that delivers a tough flexibility. It has been tested to withstand repeated drops onto concrete without cracking, unlike conventional plastic housing. The tool also features a 1/4-Inch quick-change hex chuck.
The Bosch PS21 delivers two speeds (0-350 rpm for high torque and 0-1,300 rpm for high speed) and 20+1 clutch settings. This is designed for accurate driving and fewer stripped screws. The strong performance of high torque and the convenience of two speed settings allows the driver to tackle all but the toughest applications. This tool has a variable-speed trigger for reliable speed regulation and additional user control.

Only cons I have is there is no provision to hold spare bits, but that might make it more cumbersome. I suppose I could add my own bit holder.
Batteries and chargers are readily available online from numerous sources if your local tool supplier doesn't carry them. Go for the new BAT 413 if available. More power and better cold weather performance!
Love this tool. It is ideal for driving. Not so much for drilling. But if you like to use two different drills/tools during your work (one for drilling and one for driving ...so that you don't to be constantly changing bits back and forth), then this is the ideal companion for driving purposes. Two speeds (high and low), and with the low speed (higher torque), you can drive 3" screws into wood with no pre-drilling (if pressure treated, then of course it takes more battery power and will therefore drain your battery sooner. 2-1/2" go in quite easily). Adjustable clutch settings. Good LED light. ...just a great tool. So darn light, yet quite powerful. Love it, love it, love it.
I used to use the Bosch 18v Li-ion impact driver quite a bit, but this compact 12v driver has taken its place for most things, for it is just so quiet compared to the loud hammering impact of the the 18v impact driver. But if you need the extra power, then the 18v impact wins hands-down. The 18v impact has tons more power, but I guess I typically just don't need that much power (especially if working with untreated lumber ..but again, the 12v can do it), and therefore like the experience of less noise when working.
