Thanks. Collected. Not a bad little thing for £5. It charges via micro usb (charger included), has a forward facing sight led light, and can twist to convert from gun style to straight.

3.6v 800mAh lithium battery, 2.5Nm torque,

If it's like the Guild one, it's a great wee thing. Not much torque (of course) but very, very handy to have around. Boyf uses it all the time.
It would be cheeky not to at this price. Thanks @idontflycathay
Heat. Got mine for £7 a few weeks back.
Wow, great price
Got one for 1p.bargain
Got the Guild one last year for about £6 still going strong. Comes in handy.
Ordered and picked up thanks

Definirely 800 mAh? Weird, because one of the answers from Argos in the Q&A section says 1300 mAh. The £8 Ikea version is 1.3 Ah, so may just get that if I end up needing one rather than jumping on this deal

I bought this and haven’t properly used it yet. As another poster has mentioned - the bit holder is plastic so has the potential to break. Now knowing this - I would probably go for the £12.50 other Argos deal posted on here.

That’s what the pamphlet/manual says, if I read it right before throwing it away.
Tool snobs will bash this saying it's useless, 'buy cheap, buy twice', buy a 'proper'' electric screwdriver at over 10x the price by Makita or DeWalt.

Back in the real world, these are perfect for light DIY (putting shelves up, mounting curtain rods and assembling flat-pack). I'm a big believer in things being fit for purpose... obviously, if you're planning on building a deck with this, you'd be disappointed!

I have the IKEA one (currently priced at £8 with a smidge more torque) and it's brilliant. Expected it to be a throwaway tool, but I've had it about 3 years and it's so handy. Li-ion batteries also keep their charge for absolutely ages, which is perfect when the tool only gets occasional use... I can leave mine months and it's still good to go.

On the other hand, if you want to build forearms like Popeye, just assemble an IKEA flat-pack with a manual screwdriver!
Bought, Should be fine for some simple jobs.
Got sucked in and bought a work bench as well though

The beauty of using this to assemble a flat-pack is that - unlike a human using a manual screwdriver - it has constant torque. Or in plain language, the screws don't go in at a slant, unless done intentionally. Line the screw up at 90 degrees to the wood and it will stay at that angle and be so much neater.
It's saying £10 for me?

I hate that, get a few sales and up the price to cash in.
