Bosch IXO IV Screwdriver
Outstanding value for money
You get an awful lot for your money with this screwdriver. The quality is outstanding. I used it all day assembling furniture and it still has plenty of change left. The battery technology is a very welcome addition and the charging dock is excellent. Very highly recommended.

It can have a torque fitting
Good little screwdriver for smaller screwing jobs. Its plus point is it's size, pocketable. A number of people have rightly lamented the lack of a torque control BUT Bosch do make one, also an offset head and a right angle one. You can buy them in a kit or individually. Not seen them on the Screwfix site (hint hint Screwfix) but they are readily available.

Not as meaty as I would expect
I was slightly disappointed with this as I had thought it would replace my larger (heavier) drill/driver for most jobs. However, there is not a huge amount of torque in this unit and when using it with anything other than easy screws it is quite noisy in operation (noisier than an 18V drill/driver). The noise seems to be coming from the metal gearbox which at least suggests it is well built!
Cannot comment on longevity yet.
Charge system good - It lights green whilst charging and goes out once charged so at least it is very clear!

Great elec screwdriver
I used one of these screwdrivers on a vessel I was employed on last year and was really impressed with its power and battery life. Its also great for fitting in a pocket while walking round the ship.
So now I'm home I went straight out and got myself one. I took the oven apart and fixed it in no time at all. Well happy with it.
