Everyone has heard of AEG, they've been going long enough. So when I came across this driver at a bargain price I thought 'why not?', and to be honest, I'm glad I did.
It is a good size, compact, being no more than 165mm in height and about that long, with the front chuck area having a ring around it that offers 17 torque settings for greater control.
It runs off a 12 volt Li-ion battery and you it came with a spare too, which meant using one whilst charging the other, which led to longer screwing time..??!!
It has a 10mm key-less chuck that can be controlled using just your hands, and when it comes to driving, or drilling, it has a little LED light that shines on the area the bit is pointing at.
The trigger is just on the underside of the top section and is one of those electronic ones which mean that it starts and stops when you want it to and not half an hour after you've released the trigger.
There is also a further control system which consists of a push slider button on the top of the unit that changes the gears of the motor giving you more power.
It weighs a mere 1kg, which makes it in the lighter list of drivers. The battery is a pen type, which means that it is tall and thin and rams up the handle instead of sitting on the bottom of it.
For me this is up there with the better drivers as some I have used either don't have the power of don't have the stamina, either way it leads to frustration when screwing those longer jobs. This one has both and has not let me down yet.
It is fairly lightweight and so easy to control, plus, as it's quite small, it gets into those places that other drivers don't
The price of this driver is about £50 - £60 which is not too bad considering that most drivers of this kind are about as powerful as Nick Clegg in Prime Ministers Question Time.
And, you also get an extra Li-ion battery, a charger and a case to carry it all in, which is a bonus.
