    I didn’t realize how much I would miss having variable speed before I got this cordless. It works fine for around the house but you better make sure your screwdriver head is firmly placed in the slots (screw head) or it will pop out and scratch the surface of what your working on.

    The power is good for a 7 volt cordless and it will take screws out of soft wood but nothing to tough. I also did a quick job of putting together an office shelf. But I needed to torque the screws down by hand after assembly.

    Just for kicks I put a 1/4 inch drill bit in it and drilled through some red oak and it did the job. I also tried to screw a 2 inch wood screw into the same piece of oak and it didn’t quite have enough power. Pilot holes drilled first are the solution.

    It is as “cute as can be” and my wife likes having it handy so I’m relatively satisfied. I think the power and convenience are worth something in this small tool too. But for and extra couple buck I would get a cordless that has variable speed.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love my DeWalt 18-volt drill with all my heart but oftentimes it is major overkill. I was intrigued when offered the opportunity to try out a smaller cordless drill that touted a long lasting charge on the battery. After charging it complete, I went around trying to find places I could use it and found it up to the task for any quick job around the house. I did discover (the hard way) it is not a variable speed drill and if you do not keep it steady and firm, it can jump out and potentially cause you to mar up the wall or item you are working on. I played with the torque settings and found them to be sufficent for the tasks I tried. I really love the smaller and lighter form factor and the fact this drill fits in any of my desk or kitchen drawers unlike my heavy duty favorite mentioned above. I fully charged it several weeks ago and played with it for a couple of hours since and it is still going strong. It definitely is not a replacement for heavy duty jobs but for quick indoor work, it is terrific.

    Great Intro to the world of power tools, March 25, 2012

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    I’ve got to admit that I’ve always been afraid of power tools because I wasn’t sure that I could control them. As a woman, I’m probably average, i.e. average hands, average strength. For the last 20 years, I’ve been comfortable using “non-power” tools involving a little hand-crank drill, etc. But I wanted to try to learn using power tools because if you master them, you can work more quickly.

    So, I took the plunge and got this drill and I’m glad I did. My main uses are doing tasks around the house and yard. The biggest task looming over me when I got this was to put up blinds on five windows. Like most things now-a-days, the instruction pamphlet was a little sparse but I managed to figure out enough to get it charged and get the bit inserted, so I was ready to go. While it certainly isn’t weightless, I was able to use it in an awkward position quite easily and got all five blinds up in one afternoon. Normally, it would have taken me longer with my manual drill and screwdrivers. I had to hold it above my head to get the screws into the window frame to hold the blinds, and while I did get a little tired, it was by no means overwhelming, which gives you an idea that this drill is not unwieldy or too big/heavy for a woman.

    I’ve been using it quite successfully around the house (and yard) ever since and I’m quite happy with it. I now thing it was a great investment and a wonderful intro into the world of power tools.
