Looking at the specs....the bosch is 10nm hard......I'm convinced this is a rebranded Bosch PSR 7.2v....:p

This is one rebranded tool you definitely do want in your tool bag at this price!

According to CamelCamel the Bosch PSR 7.2v has never been lower than £44.68 (the price I paid (_;))

So for half the price and almost identical technical specs, I'd give it a go.

3 year warranty as well sold for me!!

Looks good, does anyone ever use the torque settings on these things though?

Can be handy where there's a risk of stripping, so you only want to go so far torque wise and then carefully finish by hand using the spindle lock feature.

Have had a quick play tonite and the torque settings came in handy when removing some stubborn screws! Well worth the money IMO

Decisions, decisions! Should I cancel my order for the 'Bosch IXO 3.6V … Decisions, decisions! Should I cancel my order for the 'Bosch IXO 3.6V Cordless Lithium-Ion Screwdriver with Right Angle Adapter and Easy Reach Adapter' @ £26.79 and go for this one instead?



Yes, you should because this one has variable speed control and the Bosch does not, I now own them both and this one is much easier to use because of that.
Well worth the price.

Just got one of these and then got home and realised you got no bits with it ****!! Can I just buy any bit set online was looking at this
Bit set German amazon

Yeh, I found the same too.. A bit disappointing, in fact, I thought I read somewhere that they do come with a few bits?

The instructions state what's included in the box and there's no bits which is a shame.

Oh well I'm going to return my Bosch to home base tomorrow as ive now got this which is twice as powerful.I'll check these out whilst I'm there Bosch Bit Set

Just picked one of these up from my local today, they had quite a few left.
Very powerful device.

I have however noticed that the chuck doesn't run true (I.e it moves from side to side).
I was thinking of maybe exchanging it, but would be interested in comment from other purchasers on what theirs are like.
Obviously if you use a long bit, there will be some play in it but trying it with a short bit, I could definitely feel the wobble.

Ooohh... No wobble on mine... I'd take it back and swap it.

I have a really silly question, and would appreciate it if anyone could help explain the torque settings. Its currently set on Max, and its doin its job. When and why would I need to change it to the other numbers?

Thanks for that, going to call in tomorrow.

My understanding of torque settings is to stop you stripping the thread.
Softer material needs less torque.
