This one gets good reviews here and on other RC forums. 21 clutch settings. Used to be Hitachi, the HPT in the type stands for "Hitachi Power Tools".

I use the Dewalt 8V posted earlier. There is no clutch, but I don't trust a clutch on plastic. The inline allows me to hand tighten the final amount almost like a normal driver (still a bit bulky).

I got it as a refurb for around $40.

I also wouldn't typically trust a clutch when going into plastic but that's why I like the $14 HyperTech 4.0vt. Even on the 2nd or 3rd setting it will start ratcheting when it meets resistance. On the 1st setting there's no way even on soft plastics that it's going to keep spinning. To do anything around the house... even just drilling into drywall, I have to ramp the clutch way up to keep it going.

I picked up the 8v pistol grip about eight months ago and use it all the time. I find the control to be pretty responsive and sensitive and I like the ability to change the configuration. Itís not cheap but Iím happy with it and hope to never have to replace it. I almost bought the Milwaukee that was mentioned earlier in the thread but ended up going with this because of the versatility. My only complaint is that I wish it had a chuck and Iím sure thereís add-ons if I ever get around to it.

I use one as well. Not too much power so it can strip out, just enough to get the job done. Clutch is very accurate too. Works great!

I picked up several 2mm, 2.5mm, and 1/16" bits, both short and long. I also picked up a couple of manual handles so I can swap bits between the manual handle and the power driver. Works fantastic, and consolidated many of my tools.

Default Cordless Screwdriver

Letís just say I went to the shed and upgraded lmao



After using this, I donít want to use anything else.

Itís speed really helps on the portal boxes for example.

Obviously you have to hand tighten it down, but itís still a lot faster.

I happened to browse through this thread and decided to buy the Hyper Tough screw driver from Walmart, as recommended by some people in this thread. While I can't say what the exact torque it delivers at the lowest clutch setting, I do think it's a reasonable amount of torque suitable for M3 self tapping screws or machine thread screws commonly used in 1/10 RC builds. It seems to be a great value for the price. Has 2 years warranty so I hope it's durable. I am keeping my receipt just in case : )

Good to hear it is good so far! I was curious in that drill.

SOLD! I just ordered one. Heck, for $14 bucks I'll give it a try!! Thanks for the recommendation.

I've been using this same one for the last year-and-a-half with zero problems. Battery charge lasts forever. I just stop a few threads short when screwing into plastic and hand tighten from there since it doesn't have a clutch.
