I have the Parkside 240v one and it's brilliant. I'll be getting one of these to keep in the car to use if we need to put on the spare.

Some of the highlights:

3 year warranty
2 operating modes: battery operation or via the 12V cigarette lighter plug
60-minute charge with automatic switch-off
Includes 4 socket wrenches
Max. tightening torque: 100Nm
Max. loosening torque: 300Nm

300Nm... really? I assume this is when plugged into the 12v supply.

Call me skeptical, the new 12v stubby from Milwaukee can do around 300Nm and thats a lot fatter than this unit, also there is a big discrepancy between the fastening and loosening torque on this unit, normally the difference isn't quite so big, certainly not 200%, but ill watch this space hopefully someone will provide an answer once they buy one

12v is 12v, most car cigarette lighters have 15A fuses and the battery should be able to deliver over 15A (you can get 18650's that can deliver 35a) if its been designed properly for a power tool.

The fastening torque is limited as the target use is wheel nuts and they're generally tightened to 100-140Nm, certainly not 300Nm. I'm sure we've all tried to loosen a wheel nut that's been put on with a "windy gun" and had to use a large amount of force to get is off.

There are a few reviews on YouTube and it looks OK, for £40 I'm taking a punt.
In my experience torque specs are way off, particularly accounting for variation between manufacturers. Milwaukee & Metabo for example seem to have much more real world torque than other comparable units on paper. They aren't £40 though so not really helpful. Interesting to see what these are like, please keep us updated when you get it OP

Interesting, I didn't realise 18650s can kick out 35A without crying.

Realistically I don't think a Lidl tool will be design to go that high. Nor will they push a cig lighter to 15a as not every car has 15a fuse on cig lighter. Some only have 10a or less.

Any clever mech wizards that can calculate 12v 5a into realistic workable Nm?

From a practicality point, 100nm is not enough to torque up a nut (also this is peak torque, on a good day, fully charged). Still need the bar to tighten it up properly.
Another application point, I probably wouldn't want to give this to people who don't know how to use impact guns.. I've had many a stripped screws from the mrs using it. People who know how to use impact guns most probably know how to use a service kit in a car/breaker bar..?

Maybe it's not so good product after all... :/

My bad there are 30A continuous drain ones with a 40A burst rating. I imagine this probably uses no more than 10A.

Regardless, good to know, I assume again you mean the tesla esque ones rather than boggo power tool versions of 18650s? (again I'm assuming they're different ).

There are few brands that offer cells with those ratings, the power tool ones should be just as good if they used in something high power, I'd imagine an 18v drill could easily pull 30A if you was drilling large holes in wood, i might just have to measure the current draw mine to see what they actually pull.

The battery is bound to be flat when you want to use it in a couple of years time. You can recharge it from the cigarette lighter socket, but that takes an hour.

Just buy a big breaker bar. This one is half the price of the Lidl offering:

Heat from me, I'll be getting one.

"2 operating modes: battery operation or via the 12V cigarette lighter plug" Insinuates using it via the 12v plug, not charging it.

Sorry. You're probably right. I still prefer the low tech solution, though.
The torque ratings are measured over a period of time, so even if you have to stand there with the wretched little thing hammering away for 45 seconds before the nut budges, it still counts. I have serious doubts about this and wheel lugs.

I've had a few days out of the new Milwaukee 12v stubby (3/8) at work, and IT IS AWESOME. I wuv it.

My car and most with alloys have a recommended torque of 90 nm
Got one today, lots in borehamwood , works pretty well
I got one and was faulty..... Went back for another nd checked it 1st in the car glad I did was faulty aswell got refund
Bought it, tried to loosen the wheel nuts on my Civic which are tightened to 90 NM. It managed to loosen them. Tried it on my BMW, the bolts are tourqued to 110nm on this car, this gun would not loosen them, even after 1 min of constant hammering. It's going back to the shop.....
