      More useful than the prime ministers driver... and a lot less costly

      This is basically a small drill, which makes it a driver, but it is the same basic shape having the handle with the trigger on it and a directional button just behind it.
      It offers a 4.8 volt rechargeable Ni-Cd battery that can take up the 5 hours to charge. Once charged I was getting about 30 – 40 minutes of steady use before the power dropped too much to be of any more use on that charge.

      On the front there's the fixed 'hex' chuck, allowing you to use any type of 'hex' bits. You get three bits in the package which are not as bad as some i've used.
      Under the chuck the is a little light that shines up at the place that you are screwing into.
      The handle has a soft feeling to it, although it's as strong as the proverbial ox so there's little danger of it snapping when you need it the most.

      This is one of those little drivers that can handle its own, for a while after being charged, but as the battery is Ni-Cd it does tend to discharge a little too quickly for my liking. Which is why a hardly use this one now. In fact, if I remember correctly, I lent this to my Brother-in-law a while back and have not seen it since? Never mind. No big loss really.

      This driver sells for about £15 £20, which is money well spent on a driver that, even though it is in the low power section, can screw screws into many softer woods, making it great for Ikea furniture.
