Dremel has a new cordless rotary tool, 7350-5, that’s powered by a built-in 4V (3.6V) battery.
The new Dremel 7350 cordless rotary tool operates at a single speed, 12,000 RPM, and is recharged via USB power adapter (not included).
The tool comes with a micro USB charging cable and a 5pc starter set of sanding, grinding, and cleaning accessories, plus a collet wrench.
Dremel describes the 7350 as being “simple to use, easy to love.”
According to the spec sheet, the Dremel 7350 has a 2Ah battery.
Dremel says that their new 4V USB-recharged cordless rotary tool is compatible with most Dremel accessories, and that it is NOT recommended for cutting, drilling, and routing tasks. They say it’s suited for sanding, grinding, sharpening, polishing, and engraving applications.
At the time of this posting, there’s a “clippable coupon” that takes $2.50 off the price.
Compared to Ryobi
Ryobi also recently came out with a new USB Lithium cordless rotary tool. The Ryobi tool has an adjustable speed range, from 5,000 to 25,000 RPM. It comes with 15 accessories, a storage case, collet wrench, and a single replaceable battery.
The Ryobi will soon be available for $60, which is double the price of the Dremel.
At the other end of the spectrum, Dremel also recently came out with a “Smart” cordless rotary tool with Bluetooth connectivity and brushless motor.
