Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oceanside Light weight and powerful - a great combination
This Black & Decker impact screwdriver has both high speed and torque in a compact design that is comfortable to use. It has variable speed control and a LED above the handle which is great to have light on where you are trying to work.
Note that only one chuck with a Phillips head is included, but you can use your existing hex shanks or buy them as accessories if you don't have them.
There is also a magnetic holder for a shank on top of the drill, which makes switching between standard and Phillips easy. This can also be used as a drill for bits 1/4" or smaller.

For starter, this is NOT a standard impact driver. It is an impact screw driver for screws! Some people had the impression that this thing is meant to take of nuts and bolts. It is not designed for that. This is meant for driving screws through drywalls, 2x4s, etc.
This screw driver have enough power for me not to use my impact drivers, which is a plus, since it is very small and light. It can get to places that my impact drivers can't go. The battery life is pretty decebt for its size. However, it is built-in; therefore, after the li-ion battery dies, this tool is useless.
The charge time is terrible, 7-9 hours! B&D needs to have an optional fast charger like their 20v max series.

No power!!!!!!!!. Would not break loose lawn mower blade holding nut. Did it by hand fairly easy.

This tool is very handy and compact. I love the length of time it holds a charge, as well. Plenty of power for my needs.

I saw an add for this little gem and hunted for it for months. I even emailed B&D to see who carried it. They never answered me but I never expected them to. I found it on
Amazon but thought it would eventually end up at Home Depot. I had a gift certificate so I waited. It never did show up in stores but I found it online. It lived up to my expectations and more. Small to carry around, small in a small to medium hand, very powerful with impact power and a lithium battery. Takes overnight to charge but will last quite awhile. I don't know about professional use but it has handled every job I have given it. I think the main reason they don't carry it in the store is they wouldn't sell as many $250 units when the $50 unit is almost as good. If I get another gift certificate I'll get another for backup.

This little impact driver did big in repairing grape vine trellis repairs to the tension screws to keep the frame firm for the summer load of grapes
it provided the tork and the hammering made the job easier then regular drill so it is a good bang for the buck and great for small hard to reach places

This screwdriver is easy-to-use. It can handle a variety of projects and everything is completed much quicker. I also like the fact that you can change the bits to either use the "x" or the "I" instead of having to carry around two different screwdrivers.
