I like basic cordless screwdrivers. Not as much as say my Bosch 12V Max, but 4V Max-class cordless screwdrivers are convenient, simple, and usually fast and powerful enough for around-the-house tasks. Prior to moving and misplacing it, I had a Black & Decker Gyro cordless screwdriver easily accessible. Before that, I had a Black & Decker 3.6V screwdriver that I got for free as part of an Amazon promo years prior.
They’re much slower and weaker than pro brands’ pricier and higher-voltage cordless screwdrivers. But sometimes that’s okay, or even beneficial.
I gave my father a Milwaukee M18 cordless drill kit a few years ago – one of the $99 bundles that if I recall correctly I snagged for $79 after the holiday season – but something like this would probably be more convenient for around-the-house screwdriving tasks. I’ve given him a couple of multi-bit drivers over the years, but a Channellock ratcheting screwdriver is still his favorite go-to. Something like this might be easier on his hands.
Question – is something like this too much for a 5 year old that sometimes uses other cordless drivers with hand-over-hand guidance?
