I've never seen the point of electric screwdrivers that don't have a torque control, yet none of them have one.

I prefer to use an old cordless drill in 1st gear with torque settings.

That said, this looks cheaper than most.

You dont need torque control on a 3.6V screwdriver, they arent powerful enough. On a 10 or 12V screwdriver then yes.

This one will probably need you to start undoing really tight screws by hand first, For example if you're unscrewing floorboards.

Pedant in me can't help but compare to full cordless Draper 14.4v £17 from asda at christmas last year, bought three, one for me, two as gifts, bought the screwdriver sets that can be used in them, so all in £25ish for powerful screwdriver and a cordless drill puts this to shame.

Good deal compared to other retailers? no idea, so not voted, but that's how i view this.

I am fully with you there. In addition it looks like there is no real speed control either, only on or off.

I will also stay with my old cordless screwdriver/drill.

Voltage is not a measure of power. Electrical power (watts) is current (amps) multiplied by potential difference (volts)

So a 3.6v screwdriver can be much more powerful than a higher voltage device if it uses more current.

I have a higher end 3.6v Bosch cordless screwdriver that has a useful torque control. It's powerful but I don't think much of it though because the battery has never held as much charge as it should. Unless I need it in a confined space I use my Hitachi drill driver which is far superior, though it should be as it was substantially more expensive.

May be true but in reality a 3.6V drill is more than likely going to be less powerful as voltage is part of the power equation. That is why the heavy duty ones are 10V plus.

These definitely have there place, ideal for flat packs and if you cant pick up a drill/driver, also good in confined spaces

Wouldn't pay this much for one tho

Well this is about the cheapest you'll get with a Lithium battery.

It's not a drill, it's a screwdriver. You are going to be hard pressed to show us a 10v+ screwdriver in this compact format and completely unable to show one, even vaguely, in this price range, Li-ion or otherwise

Whatever. The same principle applies, drills can be used as screwdrivers.

Where is a cheaper one?

But is it a decent make? I can find no reviews, and hardly anywhere sells it. That puts me right off.

At least this deal is from amazon who are reliable and there are plenty of good reviews.

Wait, a couple of reviews of your one here: amazon.co.uk/Ein…NF4

Who cares, they are both crap.

Plenty of very good retailers sell awful products, that just means within 1st 12months you'll get a refund easier if it breaks when a decent product wouldn't of, Draper Drill, Ryobi screw driver here, both reliable and I expect to last, not something i expect from this awfully named & designed, designed product. How much royalty from paying for this goes to Lambo's owners, Audi?
Wouldn't touch this with a barge pole, no idea if good price vs elsewhere, but then I don't care as this looks terrible and would never buy it.

unfortunately in alot of diy products like this,you are, or are not in some/this? case paying for a decent battery with a decent motor.

also mccririck makes a good point
