Worx’s QBit multi-bit cordless screwdriver is aimed at DIYers who can never find the bits they need. It features a 6-slot screwdriver bit cartridge, offset head for easier close-quarters access, LED work light, and built-in 4V lithium-ion battery.
Bits are stored inside removable and swappable revolver-style bit cartridges. Users can load the drivers with the included bits, or replace them with bits of their choosing.
There are currently two SKUs, one with a single 6-bit cartridge, and one with two 6-bit cartridges (12 bits).
- no-load speed 230 RPM
- 1/4″ hex chuck accepts 1″ insert bits
- 3 Nm torque (~26.55 inch-lbs)
- 3-hour charger
- 4V 1.5 Ah battery
Worx is marketing the new driver as a semi-automatic screwdriver in the USA, and QBit screwdriver in the UK and EU.
The QBit concept itself is pretty neat, but it’s not unique. The similarly designed Bosch PSR Select features a 12-bit cartridge and grearer torque. Right now the PSR is a EU-only product, but hopefully it will one day come to the USA under the Skil label.
