Was recently £32.99 on amazon, RRP £48.96. Pssibly worth a buy for less than £17. The model seems to be AS36LN.

This has been on before, and the general consensus seemed to be that 3.6V wasn't powerful enough to do the job, and it usually had to be finished by hand.

I've bought things like that before as well! :whistling:

The posts on the cordless jigsaw suggested the Lithium ion batteries gave more power, so hopefully it's not that bad. Fingers crossed.

It's a good price but I'm sure I saw a Bosch one for £10 on the PC World website earlier.

Just off to have another look

Ahhh..instore only it seems. Looks comparable though?

Good find! I've been wanting to buy one of these for a while, but always priced around the £30 mark.

Don't mind hand tightening if thats the case either to be fair, but the lithium batteries are a bit better than old :)

I received a free Bosch with my Bosch Hammer drill and its rubbish. Absolutely no power at all and the battery life is less than pathetic. Not what you'd expect from a Bosch.....better off with a hand job :w00t:

Yep - agree with you on that.

I've had a Black & Decker 2.4v (Ni-Cd) electric screwdriver for years now.

I've needed to replace the batteries a couple of times after all these years, (which it wasn't designed for) but I'm wasn't throwing a 20 quid electric screwdriver away for the sake of a couple of rechargeable 'C' cell batteries.

Otherwise can't fault it, does exactly what it was designed to do ... which is not the same as say an 18v or 24v industrial screwdriver/drill is designed for, but then it's no where near as big, heavy or difficult to handle either. :)

VOTED COLD, tools like this are qvc ideas tat in the main,
Black & Deckers notoriously cruddy batteries that fail, even if in a charging slot thats sucking up mains power 24 / 7

& what about if you need to place a screw in a wall that doesn't already have a hole / rawplug fixing? ..you may as well invest in a regular good quality battery drill & have enough oomph from the word go..
Or alternately buy the comfygrip stanley hand (no batteries) driver that has the built in bits, + normal & ratchet actions, that is generally enough to heft your way out of most scenarios for a bit less, & will work for years to come unlike the B&D option..
it's always ready to go as it doesn't need batteries, less space in a drawer, less initial resources & will work in a years time.:thumbsup:

great stuff!
You can have everything in life that you want if you just give enough other people what they want.

I agree. I had a rolson one which i got from maplin..

It was terrible.. Two screws and you need to charge it !

May be good if you are building some hobby kits or something but for using on flat packed stuff not recommended.

If anyone is wanting this sort of screwdriver ikea do one for around £9 its 3.6V and litium batts it seems to do the job for flat pack stuff , instore staff use them.

Just to add a bit of balance to all the posts above.

I bought one of these from B&Q for £24 and it has been excellent so far. Enough torque to screw into wood generally and have had only had to finish off a couple of screws. Charged only once so far and used dozens of times.

So this gets the thumbs up from me, esp at the lower price and with Amazon's good CS thrown in.

Thanks! Ordered!

Looks like the same one available at the same price on the Tesco Direct site (although 3% Quidco available):

NB You would have to pay postage if you couldn't use Click & Collect.

Thank you.
Ordered from Amazon, delivery time not till Feb, but not planning any DIY until then anyway. :-)

I have the Bosch one and used it many times, do a lot of work on cars and for general stuff it has been great, I cannot recomend the Bosch enough for what you pay for it, does it what it says on the tin basically, tempted by this for a spare. Granted not Dewalts but not Dewalt price either...
