Adjustment of the torque level and the gear


In total there are 18 different steps to screw and one to drill. The higher the step, the higher the torque. You can also choose between two different gears, which also regulate the torque.


To drill, first set the torque limit to the highest level. The rechargeable drill drills through wood, you have to hold the drill tight. You will notice that the drill does not pass through the wood effortlessly.


To screw, first set the torque limit manually to a desired level. On all levels, the screws can be easily screwed in and out by using the right/left rotation.


As soon as the screw head reaches the wood and the set torque value is exceeded, the slipping clutch engages automatically and prevents more power from being exerted on the screw.

LED battery indicator
Battery status is indicated by LEDs


The battery level is indicated by an LED light. The battery life is approximately 60 minutes. In order to determine the battery life, we have used cable ties to fix the switch and let the drill run continuously. The result indicates approximately how long the battery of the devices can last. The time can vary if the device is used actively.

We have evaluated approx. 50 customer reviews on the Internet. In summary it can be said that about 85 percent of the buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). Partially (2 stars) or completely dissatisfied are almost 10 percent of the users. The average score at the time of the evaluation was 4.4 out of 5 stars.
