Style Name: Cordless Screwdriver
First let me address all the bad reviews that state that this screwdriver uses some strange bit size and you can't find bits.

It DOES NOT use a strange bit size and you can find replacements everywhere!!!!

This is a precision screwdriver. That is the size not some word meaning tight tolerances.

Standard screwdrivers use 1/4" shank bits. They generally have standard and large size tips like phillips #2 and so on.

Precision screwdrivers use 5/32" or 4mm shank bits. These small bits are made for electronics and eyeglasses, small tips down to phillips #000

As this is a precision screwdriver, don't expect it to work on large screws, it will probably break eventually. If you mostly use regular screws in your work, you are better off getting a regular electric screwdriver, not precision. Again, precision does not mean quality, it means small screws.

Just do a search on Amazon or anywhere for precision screwdriver bits and you will have lots of bit choices. If it says precision, then it should be 1/8" shank, just make sure. I personally have over 60 different bits for this screwdriver, not counting duplicates.

You can buy tons of bit styles in every price range, from real cheap garbage to high end swiss made bits. Lots of choices of brands and tips.

Stay away from the cheap sets, if it doesn't say the bits are hardened or chrome vandium steel, don't buy them they will just strip out with light use. They are unhardened mild steel, beware the discount bits. There are some real inexpensive sets on Amazon that have 30 to 50 bits and are hardened steel. Again, just search for "precision screwdriver bits" and make sure they say hardened steel and you will be fine.

This is a great driver for its intended purpose.

Style Name: Cordless Screwdriver Verified Purchase
About six years ago I found and bought my first mini powered screwdriver, a brand called the "iGo." The iGo was the same in concept as this Ultra Tech in that it was a super mini screwdriver, with small driver bits (albeit the iGo bit are not as small as the Ultra Tech). The iGo is powered by two AAA batteries.

Back then the iGo was the only miniature battery powered screwdriver on the market (at least that I could find). There were plenty of large AA battery powered drivers (that use four batteries), for example Black & Decker's drivers. But those are powerful screwdrivers meant for heavy duty jobs such as inserting wood screws into hardwood.

In 2004, when I was first researching and looking for a battery powered mini screwdriver, I wanted something for delicate, small jobs such as working on computers or small electronic devices. (The Black & Decker type drivers are too big, cumbersome and powerful to work on small screws, plus those powered screwdrivers don't come with bits small enough to fit into small screws.) What size screws am I talking about? Look on your netbook or notebook computer case, to see the screws I am talking about.

Enter the iGo powered screwdriver. Those have served me well all these years and I am still using the original two I bought back then. (Actually, I bought five of them and gave two as gifts. By the way, geeks love these powered mini screwdrivers. My friend gave one to her sister's new husband at their wedding reception, part of a box of gifts. Everyone at the reception was asking to play with the screwdriver and he caught two of his guests trying to "forget" they had the driver, by putting it in their pockets.

This is a niche tool. It is great for tiny screws on electronics, computer components, or other small devices. This is the tool to use when you can NOT use your power tools on sensitive and fragile electronics or computer components. The first one I got was used to take apart a couple of laptops. It is much faster than unscrewing 20-30 screws by hand. It is not only a time saver, it is also a wrist saver. This is a PRECISION screwdriver, it's not meant for the normal sized screws nor for heavy duty tightening and fastening. I would recommend LOOSENING all screws by hand before using this tool to extend the life of this tool.

My first tool did break suddenly when unscrewing the 3rd screw on a hard drive using a hex shaped bit. The motor would run but the shaft does not turn in reverse or forward. It was out of Amazon's return period but still under the 1 year warranty by General Tools. I did got to the General Tools website to inquire about the repair or replacement of the tool. But their email support REFUSED to acknowledge that they sold this tool on and told me to take the tool back to the distributor that I got it from. It was hard to believe that a company would refuse to honor their own 1 year warranty and to refuse to acknowledge their own product even when the listing on their own website and the listing on are the exact products with the exact same specs.

With no other choice, I tried contacting support. Even though the product was out of the item return period, support was willing to replace the faulty item at no cost. I was told that this was a one time thing and I accepted it anyways. I'm just grateful that support are able to offer that kind of support to their customers.
