Eh

moneysm

why so cold for



Because it's useless?

I have a Bosch one which is very good (deal here at some point I imagine).
As long as it has reasonable torque and a decent battery life it should be good for say flat pack furniture, infact building anything say Ikea these are a godsend.

Thank op, ordered and heat added.

This is my point. Was at a friend's BBQ last week and she needed some help with an Ikea garden table. Has a slightly better quality version of this Argos one, that was fully charged and died after screwing in three 6cm screws with zero torque. Hence, useless.

So what your saying was basically she was screwed.....Or Not.....

Thanks OP! It seems to get more than enough half-decent reviews to convince me to buy one, bearing in mind my expectations of its limits.

thank you just ordered ikea wardrobe and 2 sets of drawers to put together tomorrow, this will be handy

Is this screwdriver not the same as this one:

hotukdeals.com/dea…753

Argos and Homebase have/had common ownership?

Yes you are right.

fine for saving time building basic flat packs, you don't need massive torque as most people tighten by hand anyway

they look similar but argos sold homebase at the beginning of the year ​bbc.co.uk/new…384

Ikea sell a Li-ion battery screwdriver for about £7, yes it is dearer than this but well worth the extra as it keeps a charge and can be used for quite sometime before needing recharging.
Thanks OP.

I have had one of these for 6 months. Works perfectly.

Just collected mine and it looks good for the money, obviously not used yet though only time will tell! Thanks for the find anyway op.

Good for lightweight task only, I paid full price a year ago.

As per the Homebase thread, the battery on this seems fine provided you are careful when re-charging it.

local poundshop sells these, junk, cold

Actually pretty good screwdriver, no brainer at this price

Seems like Argos is trying to make up some money they lost to hukd from those thrustmaster steering wheels a few months ago, by selling this junk...

Good find op

Its so cheap, she could have other uses for it

Its so cheap, she could have other uses for it



Lack of batt power means she'll struggle with that too !

These are terrible. It will work ok at first, it will go in the drawer for a couple of months you will remember it again get it out and the battery will be shot. I know it's cheap but it's really not work it

Then you clicked quote twice

These are not great for heavy use. Probably fine for home owners.

He's just upset because he put his keys in the wrong bowl

Complete junk! My dad had one. One of the capacitors blew up and melted insides. You can't replace the battery which will die.

There's a reason why this is so cheap. Buy cheap and you buy twice, invest in your tools!

I wonder why! DOH

texaco

I wonder why! DOH



​yes, you may well wonder why. The OP created 2 deal posts, I for a drill and 1 for a screwdriver. This thread was originally for a drill, but the link went to a screwdriver. Rather than fix the link someone changed the title to tidy it up (after my post).

Shows as v£3.93 on website but when you put it in trolley its £6.99.

i just bought this item it comes in a box that say's it only has one screw bit. so, don't get taken in. it only has one screw bit.

I sent somebody to pick mine up. they tried to charge her£6.99. I am disappointed with Argos.

It shows full price now
