A Powerful, Lightweight, Cordless Household Screwdriver with Surprising Versatility

 

When it comes to workshop and constructions projects, I have a number of drills and cordless drivers with power to spare.  But, for general household projects like installing cabinet pulls and hinges, putting up drapery hardware, mounting bathroom accessories, assembling DIY furniture, hanging pictures and many other common tasks, I prefer a compact, lightweight driver.  I find this type of driver less tiring, more comfortable, able to fit into tight spaces and less likely to over-drive the fasteners I’m using.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I still want plenty of power and long battery life, but I can do without excessive weight and bulk when it comes to many jobs around the house.

This handy driver offered by PULY fits the bill.  It’s 3.6-volt lithium-ion technology drives in screws without straining.  Its compact design fits comfortably in the hand and its light weight (14 oz.) make working overhead much less tiring.

Many household tasks involve getting into tight spaces, working around obstructions, approaching work at awkward angles and dealing with low-light conditions.   This is where the tool’s adaptability and versatility come into play.  With the push of a button and a twist of the wrist, the handle converts from a standard in-line position to a pistol grip.  The tool comes with two accessory heads -- an offset version and a right angle design, both snap on and off in seconds.  And, for added illumination the driver has a built-in LED light that can be switched on when needed.

Although I didn’t test the tool for battery life, users report that the driver holds a charge very well.
