Summary: Best screwdriver I have ever had. Just bought another for my technician. I have used this gun for 5+ years and I have used at least 5 others. This is the best, charge last longer than others and keeps it's charge for longer than others. The only problem I see is that this one I just got did not come with a bit and my first one did. Still gets 5 stars.
Summary: I repair copiers for a living, and have been using this screwdriver for over 6 years, every day, with no problems. This is my second Panasonic screwdriver, the first one was the 2.4 volt model, which I used for 3 years with no problems at all (i gave it to another tech when I upgraded to the 3.6 volt model. I like the 3.6 volt model better due to it's increased speed (600 rpm vs.
Summary: When they sell world wide, and the AC voltage was not spesified, I thought the charger to the Panasonic drill & driver could be used worldwide with input 100-240V AC, as charger for small electronics normally are. This charger are only for 120V AC and useless. They could not change the charger to one with the right voltage for me.
Summary: I purchased from a local distributor about 5 years ago when it was cutting edge. I liked the 15 min coffee break charge time. It did not come with a case or any extras other than a charger. I think I paid about $120 then. It replaced the disposable Skill unit that goes for $30. Over the past 6 months I began to notice the battery just was not giving me the performance it used to. It seemed like it would spend 15 min in charger & 15 min out..
Summary: I have been in electronics service for over 30 years, and our shops have always used these stick type screwdrivers. Products like Black and Decker, Skil, and Craftsman are not even close to being the caliber of this Panasonic driver. This is my 4th driver, and each one has been a steady improvement in features and power. I have been using it daily for about 5 years now.
Summary: For what it is- simple and lightweight, it's the best we've found so far. They last about 1-2 years of daily use in our production room. We needed a driver that was light to carry for driving small screws, with a good clutch to make sure the screws didn't break out. Any other driver is either way to heavy to carry all day, or way too crappy. The clutch works, the batteries work for about a year. So we recommend it highly for light duty jobs.
