Product Overview

The Genesis GLSD72A 7.2-Volt Lithium-Ion 2-Speed Screwdriver is a full-featured, versatile tool that is perfect for smaller projects and home repair. Super compact and lightweight, much handier than some of the larger cordless tools with a 1/4 in. hex, quick-change chuck, 2 speeds, clutch settings and an LED work light, you get many features that you normally see only on much more expensive tools. A battery charge level indicator shows you how much charge is remaining. The tool recharges completely in 3 to 5 hours. The lithium-ion battery gives you more power and twice the run time of nickel cadmium (Ni-Cad) battery and can be stored for over a year without losing its charge. Charge it any time you want, as much as you want. It won't develop a "memory" like a Ni-Cad. Great bonus drill bit set included 8 quick-change bits: 4 screwdriver bits and 4 drill bits.

  • Lithium ion battery technology for extra-long run time and up to 18 months storage time on a charge
  • 1/4 in. hex quick-change chuck
  • 2 speeds (200/400 rpm) for versatility
  • 16 torque/clutch settings
  • Built-in LED work light
  • Battery charge level indicator
  • Includes UL listed adaptor, 4 hex shank drill bits and 4 screwdriver bits
  • 2 year limited warranty

Can I buy replacement screwdrivers and drill bits?

for GLSD72A screwdriver
Asked by: 747
Not sure about the drill bits, but the screwdriver bits are standard impact duty screwdriver bits available in several brands at Home Depot.

Would you recommend this for building a privacy fence

Asked by: thug
I will give that a definite maybe! A small fence yes, a large fence, probably not. This screwdriver does not have a removable battery pack, so once the battery gets low, it must be taken out of service to recharge. But, until you have drained the charge, it is MUCH better than driving by hand.

7.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Screwdriver is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.

The quick release chuck is great, very handy. Not as powerful as a drill, but for repetitive light to medium duty work, it handles great. I have been very pleased with this screwdriver.

Excellent light weight cordless drill for small electrical and household projects. Will hold a charge for weeks/months between uses. Being a 7.2 volt drill, do not expect a lot of torque & it will not disappoint, but it is better then the smaller volt drills. Snap in drill bit is a nice feature also.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good NOT Great I purchased this driver to replace a RYOBI 4volt 4TEK driver. I chose this unit because it has mechanical bit retention, not magnetic. The redesigned RYOBI driver has a magnetic bit holder. This unit has good power and runs long on the 7.2 Volt battery. The mechanical drive gears etc. are very weak. I have already had to send back the driver to the supplier. Hope the replacement unit has better parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool Used primarily as a screw driver, the Genesis lithium-ion screwdriver works great and saves me alot of time switching from drill bits to screw driver bits with my cordless drill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK, in a pinch Ordered this screw drill online. Home Depot was great in getting the product to my local store and in my hands. The screw drill is not as fast as I expected. The turning speed is slow compared to other screw guns I've had. The chuck seems a little loose but holds the bit quite well. If the drill hits too much resistance, it shuts down. You have to wait a few seconds for it to power up again. Frustrating when you're trying to work quickly. It is lightweight enough to carry around all day, but if you have a really rusted screw it's better to break out the impact driver than spend time with this one. The battery life is OK between charges, but I've seen better from other guns costing around the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent screwdriver Excellent screwdriver/drill. Really like the 2 speed function and the lithium power to go virtually all day without having to recharge. Had to give it less than a 5 star rating due to the fact that I have to go back and give the screw or bolt that last half turn manually to really cinch it down. If it has a lock position I haven't found it. Lastly, it would have been really cool to have included a storage pouch. Had to get an all purpose tool bag to keep everything together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Next Step I do a lot of disassembly for scrap metal harvest. I was using RYOBI TEK4 screwdrivers because they have a positive mechanical lock for the bit. Most other small palm screwdrivers have magnets to hold the bit and I was sick of bending over to pick the bit up. RYOBI has redesigned this tool and left out the mechanical bit locking.This driver was chosen for its size and bit locking feature. It is much more powerful than the 4 volt RYOBI and lasts all day for me so I am ordering 2 more for my crew..
