Includes right-angle and easy-reach adapters. I've been watching the price of this item for some time with an eye on Xmas, I can assure you this is a new low. It's gone down another fiver this evening.

Please do not confuse this item with other deals that DO NOT include the right-angle and easy-reach adapters - if you buy these items they are another tenner (at least) each. Ask yourself - do you want these, or a corkscrew attachment, which you will show off once at a dinner party and then never use again.

Go on, treat your dad. And then ask him to mend your wardrobe. You know it makes sense.

Manufacturers Description:

Bosch IXO 4 Cordless Lithium-Ion Screwdriver Plus Right Angle Adapter and Easy-Reach Adapter Set--indispensably practical, practically indispensable

The IXO 4 cordless screwdriver is more than just a pretty face--this small and handy tool can take on a wide range of everyday screwdriving tasks around the home. Anybody who is moving house, refurbishing, or who simply needs to retighten a few screws won’t want to do without this powerful partner. With the help of the Right-Angle and Easy-Reach Adapters, this IXO 4 package can help you accomplish all kinds of screwdriving applications, in all materials, with all types of screws, and in hard-to-reach areas.

Thanks to lithium-ion technology the IXO is extremely small, and lightweight at only 300 grams. Also, lithium-ion technology ensures that there is no battery self-discharge, which means that the IXO is always ready for use. The battery has no memory effect as well, which means it can be recharged at any time without losing capacity over its lifetime.

The IXO is packed with other indispensable features. The work light on the top of the IXO is handy for working in dark areas. The forward/reverse indicator and charge level indicator make the tool easy to operate. And, the ergonomically shaped handle, with its large softgrip surface, provides a better and more comfortable hold. The magnetic bit holder keeps the bits firmly in place and allows extremely fast bit changes.

I'd be mighty unhappy if I was a Mar 14 purchaser. Ouch. However its a no-brainer at this price.

Bought one a few weeks ago for £35 from Amazon

How long ago? If you are still in the 28 day returns period, an email to customer services is likely to get you £7 back...

Good Deal. Heat added.

Ordered and heat added thanks OP. I now want the corkscrew adapter, getting this out of your toolbox at a dinner party to open the wine X) X) X)

I had one of these a few years ago and wasn't impressed. It was really weedy and has no torque selector, I preferred to use my 20 year old 8v black and decker drill for driving screws.

you can tell it's nearly christmas, man presents are coming out. Heat added X)

That is correct, but they may still do it if a person is persistent, gives a lot of flannel, and the operator is in a good mood.

I concur. I've had one for some time, and though it's OK for light work, it doesn't deliver with anything slightly challenging.

Cheers ordered for a present.

Totally agree and the tin is really annoying. It takes up a lot of space and if you pick it up by the top the bottom falls off - usually on to your foot !!

Very good screwdriver. This and the b&d one where it holds the screws and has tourque settings. Get them both if you're into DIY.

Hot!!! Ordered!

used this recently on some outdoor planks. well worth the price. heat.

Good price. Ordered. Thanks. Heat added.

order confirmed, thanks OP

Is this a good buy for someone who has never used a drill before, and just wants to put up a mirror and a couple of large pictures? D:

This is fine for flat-pack assembly and similar tasks, but the lack of torque adjustment, and the fact it has no proportional control on the trigger, just on/off, mean it's limited for some tasks.

Nice design though, great ergonomics. If you've got a lot of IKEA work ahead, this will save your sanity.

thanks for this voted hot

Thanks OP,

I have one of these that are a couple of years old and it is still working brilliantly and I find it has loads of torque, however with the extra's in this kit I have just bought another one (well 2 actually as one is a pressie).


Cheers
Fab piece of kit.

That's like what, 6 screws? If you want to spend almost £5 per screw then yeah, sure it'll work.

Seriously though, the lack of torque adjustment on these means that it can rip through cheap wood and plasterboard (like IKEA stuff and the cheap walls of my new-build house) if you let it. Stop before the screw is all the way in and finish it off with a handheld screwdriver if you want a secure fit.

Lol, I thought this was a drill, d'ohhh ignore me, sorry

You can use it as a drill, but only for really light stuff, not drilling big holes or masonary etc.

I see, thanks Benji, think I'll give it a miss as I have absolutely no damn clue what I need

We have one of these and its brilliant, even for a weak woman as I am! Really useful for putting together flat packs and doing odd jobs. All comes in a neat little metal case and the plug tucks away neatly. We love it in our house and would recommend it, especially at this price.

This would proably do you, depending on what your walls are made of:

It's as cheap as you'll get probably. Not going to be that good, but it'll drill a few holes and put some screws in. You'll need drill and screw bits though. Maybe better to borrow from a friend.

Ordered thanks.. I hope i am not disappointed!

This Bosch IXO is a lot more fun and makes a great gift! Picked one up for £26 on amazon the other day. Price gone up a little now.

Same screwdriver but with a cork attachment rather than the useful right angle and tight spot adapters?

this set cost me 40 quid 2 months ago, very useful however it must be recharged way too often... Nice kit, anyway

Mine seems to last far longer than I thought it would. It lasts alot longer than my drill for using as a screwdriver. Bonus with this one as it tells you when the battery is low, which my others don't.
