Worx has come out with a new 4V cordless screwdriver, WX240L, featuring an inline-style handle, 3 torque settings, LED worklights, built-in Li-ion battery, and USB-C charging.
The 3 torque settings can be beneficial to users, as this is a feature not typically found on cordless screwdrivers of this size. The lower torque settings come in handy when driving in smaller or more delicate fasteners, or working with softer materials.
Update: The Dremel Go has 6 settings and is lower priced via Amazon.
Worx describes the new cordless screwdriver as coming in handy when a drill isn’t needed.
It features two built-in LED lights at the front of the handle.
Worx shows off the cordless screwdriver being used to drive in medium-sized wood screws.
And they also show it being used for maintenance on what looks to be a Worx lawnmower.
The kit comes with the screwdriver, (12) screwdriver bits and accessories, a USB-C charging cable, and a storage box.
Here’s everything laid out on a table.

I can’t help but compare the new Worx 4V cordless screwdriver to Craftsman’s gyroscopic screwdriver, CMCF604. This Worx driver looks like it might be smaller (the Craftsman feels large in-hand), and has 3 torque settings plus USB-C charging vs. micro USB. And, at the time of this posting, it’s $10 cheaper.
The 4V Max cordless screwdriver space has some interesting competition, with a lot of brands looking to offer something innovative for differentiation. With this Worx, there don’t look to be any gimmicks, aside from the torque settings.
Worx has also described the WX240L as a 3-speed screwdriver, and with the product listing saying:
[3 SPEEDS] A slow, medium, and fast setting to cover all common screwdriving applications. Slow is for backing screws out, fast is for driving large fasteners.
It seems that the torque controls might simply be tied to variable speed settings.
Here are some other 4V Max cordless screwdrivers to consider:
And then you also have 12V Max-sized screwdrivers:
