BLACK + DECKER 71-792c Alkaline Drill/Drive 20pc Set
I found this Black & Decker compact power driver at Canadian Tire. It’s good because I asked a guy if I could test it 😛
It only takes 4 AA batteries and it has a manual mode too. Plus, it’s a couple of notches above Mastercraft in build quality.
They didn’t have any compact ones for DeWalt and Bosch otherwise, I would have looked at those. Also, it came with 6 drill bits and 12 screwdriver bits 😛 It was 20$ for the whole set. They have it on Amazon 😛
BLACK + DECKER LI4000 3.6-Volt Lithium-Ion SmartSelect Screwdriver with Magnetic Screw Holder
This one is more useful because it functions more like a drill and it can go through anything, but I don’t work with hardwoods a lot so I just need the screwdriver version (the 71-792 Alkaline drive).
So yeah, I decided I’m not going to buy the more heavy-duty Li-ion one. Not that I don’t like recharging stuff but lithium isn’t a green technology and lithium-ion is only about 40% more green than regular lithium metal.
BLACK + DECKER BDCS40G 4-Volt Max Gyro Screwdriver
This one isn’t bad either, just as useful:
but again Li-ion, I have so many unused Ni-MH which are super green compared to lithium.
Which one will I be getting on Black Friday?
Well, assuming the price is the same, the one that has a manual mode because the bits are better than in that Belkin toolkit I bought a while back and it can take my Eneloop batteries so they won’t just sit there on my desk xD
I love my Sanyo Eneloops which is now owned by Panasonic but they still have the same quality and they can be charged more times 😀
