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.

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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
