Always ready to do the job.

I’m prone to tendonitis, and my wrists get sore quickly when I have to drive more than a couple of screws, so having a powered screwdriver is a real help.

Providing 26 inch-pounds of torque, this DP240 model is a little more powerful than than the AS600, at 20 inch-pounds. A little faster, at 150 vs 130 rpm, and much lighter, at 9.6 ounces vs. 16 ounces (one pound). What convinced me to get this one in spite of its higher price ($22.96 vs. $11.95 here at Amazon) was the fact that I can just plug it into the wall socket and know that it will be charged and ready whenever I need it.

The other model, the AS600, requires four AA alkaline batteries. When they lose power or go dead, I might not have enough fresh ones on hand, and would have to drive to a store and buy some more. The cost of a few sets of batteries will eventually eat up the $11 price difference. I’d rather pay the difference up front, and know that the screwdriver will always be ready for me to use.

Great tool, must have for building your own PC

I saw this on a youtube video from an earlier model that a guy was building a gaming rig and said why not I’ll pick this up. Wow did this ever come in handy!!! It’s a great screwdriver but I highly recommend getting the black & decker 31 piece magnetic set for screwdrivers I’ll tell you why.

Pros
- Cheap
- Durable
- Built in A/C plug.

Cons
- Tip that comes with it for phillips and flat head is not magnetic
- takes 17 hours for charging for first use.

always charged, never lost

What I love about this power screw driver is that it plugs right into the outlet. You dont have to worry about trying the find the charger. Its so small that it can stay on an outlet and doesnt look too bulky. It has plenty of power for all the jobs I’ve done, and its so much nicer than going to the garage to get the huge drill out. Would be a great present for a man or a woman.

Good product…

Excellent product. Does exactly what I bought it for. More torque than I expected from such a small screw driver.

It’s great to be able to plug this in directly so it’s always charged. I don’t have to worry about keeping track of the charge.

Excellent for small jobs around the house
