There is a little LED light that shines toward the area that you are doing your work into, which means that where you are working with this there will be light.
It is only 160mm tall and about that long with the shape of it being as you'd expect any driver of its kind. Although the difference with this one is that the battery pack is a 'stick' type battery that slots into the handle itself, instead of a bulky type that slides onto the bottom of the handle. This is what makes this driver a little easier to get into tighter corners.
The trigger is where it should be, at the top of the handle where the under belly of the machine starts, with the directional button being just above the trigger.
At the front there is the torques settings, 17 in total, found by turning the easy to use dial around into the number you want lines up with the mark on the top. The lower to torque number the less pressure the chuck needs in or to stop turning.
In front of the torque setting there is the chuck itself, which is a keyless chuck and can be loosened, or tightened with one hand as it locks in place when you turn it a fraction.
Then, just below the torque dial, there is a small LED light that brightens up the area you are working on.
The battery is a 12volt Li-ion type and rechargeable using the massive charger that comes in the box. This charger allows a dead battery to get to full charge in about 30 minutes. This makes it a good thing when it comes to those longer screwing sessions. Plus, I got a spare battery in the case which meant that this driver was never out of charge really.
When charging the battery you can keep an eye on the process as the charger has small lights on it as the battery charges.
This is a fine handy driver which offers plenty of power without the bulk that some of these drivers have.
This driver can be found in many DIY shops for a good price of about £60, which is a good price for an AEG branded tool
