Just got one for Christmas and everything seems to come on, but the screwdriver just don't turn. Light comes on, charger seems to have given a full chrage. What am I doing wrong?
Asked by: jcarr
Hi Jcarr, The driver operates when pressure is placed on it to tighten or loosen a screw. Thanks for asking. Greg

I bought one today. All was there except the charger. Not sure what to do

Asked by: Jimmy
The advertisement says it only comes with the tool and battery. That’s why it is only $79.00. The regular price of $99.00 includes the charger. Great marketing ploy.

12-Volt Lithium-Ion 1/4 in. Cordless Palm Impact Screwdriver Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 247.

The push to drive technology seems to be good and bad at different times. The bad was that it is prone to stripping out the top of screws since it slips off. Two major flaws I found. One is that they only give you one phillips screw tip. It's a nice small size and I have other kits that work, but they are just slightly longer. After all your getting this because you want to smallest profile possible. The second issue is that there is no where to put a spare tip. Would be nice to be able to have a few extra tips stored on the handle for ease of use. Otherwise the light works well and the power seems good for its size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful from on top of ladders too I used this impact driver to install and remove hurricane shutters for Irma. I found it easier to use than my other trigger style tools since I had to reach one-handed from the top of my ladder to fasten the highest anchors. the way you operate the tool allows you to stay close to the wall vs having to hold a heavy drill furthet out from the wall while on a ladder or scaffold. it was easy to keep my balance and operate the tool one handed. also came in handy to fasten anchors in tight spaces and low to the ground. I even used it to drive a few tapcons since the 18v tools were on the other side of the house , so no problem with torque. I fastened all of my anchors on one 1.5ah battery charge with half a charge remaining. this will now be my everyday, compact impact carry.

The direction switch on top is easy to change and see if you're going forward or back. Grip feels great. My only complaint is it can easily fall over. Set it on it's side.

I picked this little guy up when there was the “cyber Monday” sale for $60, which happened to be timed perfectly with my assembling and installing cabinets in my house, and I’m glad I did. Made the job a breeze fitting small bracket screws in tight spaces.

It fits in the smallest and tightest spots. I purchased a second one to make installing drawer slides and hardware much faster. It's faster to switch tools than bits.

Two things. 1. the trigger is built into the chuck 2. the battery can be a real stinker to plug in and remove. Other than that, it's pretty sweet.
