Dremel F0138000JG 10.8V Li-Ion Rotary Tool
Dremel Li-Ion 10.8 V
Its very good. I am a domiciliary foot health practitioner, and mine gets an hour or so's use every day. I do have to replace it maybe on an annual basis as the end bearing wears and gets unbearably noisy. An easily changed bearing would be a nice design touch, but maybe too much to expect for the money. The batteries can fail prematurely, so keep the receipt. Never run them flat, they don't like it.

Never thought I needed one
I've been doing DIY for the last 32 years (since I was 10) and have over the years collected all manner of tools. I thought I had something that did pretty much everything, and had shied away from the Dremels of this world thinking they were toys and I'd never find a use for one.
Anyhow, last Christmas my inlaws bought one for me, and whilst graciously received I consigned it to the dark recesses of the cellar thinking I'd never use it. However I've pulled it out a couple of times recently and it's been absolutely excellent!
I had some bolt cutting to do and it did that with ease, and I've been refurbishing a couple of old parts and again it came in really useful. The battery seems to last for ages and when you turn it up to 10 it goes like stink.
I never thought I needed one, now I'm glad to have it.
