Summary: Unless you need the right angle attachment, you should instead consider the Bosch SPS10-2 4-Volt Max Pocket Screwdriver, which is only a few dollars more. Skil is a subsidiary of Bosch. Both screwdrivers are made in Malaysia, so one can assume they come out of the same factory.
Works well as a general purpose cordless screwdriver!

Summary: I enjoy using this power mini-driver. I have used it to help me assemble curtain brackets, office tables, etc. Honestly, I prefer using this over a hand screwdriver. This thing helps my jobs go faster. Heed some of the negative reviews written they have some truth behind them (ie.
Summary: This is great to leave in the catch all(junk drawer)drawers to have handy for little projects. And it will be handy w/o charging for up to 18 months due to lith ion technology.Low speed (200rpm) is a plus(less chance of cam out/more control at slower speed) when driving slot and philips screws.
Summary: The Skil iX03 2346-05 with the Li-Ion battery is much better than the Skil Super Twist with interchaneable Nickel Cadmilum batery packs. The Li-Ion last mush longer per charge. The Skil iX03 2346-05 has the 90 degree adaptor and bits that let it handle more jobs.
Summary: My 18 volt DeWalt drill, which is great, cannot match this tiny, light driver for ease of use in tight spaces. 3.6 volts is more than adequate for most household driving tasks. Beware, it will round out screw heads if one is not careful.
Summary: I just finished using this power tool. Although its easy to push the direction control switch while using it, but I was careful and really never had an issue with it, like some other reviewer who made a huge hue and cry about it.
Summary: This is a great little power screwdriver/drill. It has enough power for most small-medium projects. The battery life is really good. The price is great compared to really expensive 90 degree power drills and this one makes a great alternative if you are going to use it mostly for fasteners.
Summary: I boosted my rating to three because this device drives screws quite nicely. Nice power, nice weight, nice headlight. Don't think that the LED forward/reverse arrows are a bit of silliness: they are critical. Read on . . .
Summary: This screwdriver does not have torque settings. Torque settings is what keeps you from overtorquing and stripping out your screws. Also, if you need to run screws after screws very quickly, you'll be severely disappointed with this screwdriver. Spend just a tad more and get the Hitachi DB3DL.
