Why this deal is ZDNET-recommended
Screwdrivers are a staple tool of any repair or DIY enthusiast. For electronic repairs, I normally use hand screwdrivers, but recently I’ve been using this rechargeable mini electric screwdriver, and it’s so good it’s earned a place in my toolkit.
Also: My favorite electric screwdriver for big, heavy-duty jobs
My complaints with using rechargeable electric screwdrivers for electronics are many — they’re big and bulky, have too much power, are awkward to use in confined spaces, and usually need some proprietary charger. This one doesn’t have any of those problems.
Lifegoo Mini Electric Screwdriver tech specs:
- Rotating Speed: 200r/min
- Battery type: 3.7V 350mAh Lithium Battery
- Electric/Manual Torque: 0.25~0.35/3Nm
- Material: Aluminum/ABS/S2 Steel
- Aluminum body, oxidation-resistance
- Charging time: 30-40 mins
- Charging Port: USB
This screwdriver is compact and lightweight, so I can use it in confined spaces. The torque (the power it outputs) is a reasonable 0.25-0.35Nm.
That means the screwdriver allows you to manually tighten screws up to 3Nm, which is a snug hand tight — good enough to hold the fastener in place, not tight enough to break anything.
And it charges with USB-C, which for me is a must, because I don’t want yet another proprietary charger in my life.
The screwdriver has a 350mAh rechargeable lithium battery, which is good enough for 2 to 3 hours of use.
Also: I highly recommend this 12-in-1 electric screwdriver, and it’s 65% off right now
It also has three buttons — in and out for the screw, and a button to turn on the 360° shadow-free LED lighting.
Along with the screwdriver, we also get a 48-piece precision bit set, which come in regular and extra-long, with the long ones being perfect for deeply recessed screws.
