A lot of the ratings on this cordless screwdriver are directly related to the cost of the item which seems to fluctuate a lot to give an unreliable overall customer rating. I got mine for 10 pounds and for 10-12 pounds this is well worth the money, it’s a handy little cordless driver that’s perfect for light jobs like small fixes and putting together small flat pack furniture. It’s not that powerful and really is only of use screwing into pre-drilled holes, added to that it doesn’t hold a charge for too long. But for 10 quid it’s very hard to complain. Currently this is selling for £18. 94 and at that price i wouldn’t touch it at all, for all of the above reasons. Once you get into the £20 range there are much better and more powerful cordless screwdrivers available. My four star rating is only for the fact it cost me 10 quid and little to do with the quality of the actual driver itself. If you see it available for £10 then it’s well worth having for small odd jobs, but anything more than that then i would give it a miss.

Good little hobby device, not suitable for major diy but for the odd job lightweight job its fine.

After using for so many months i can say its worth investing in higher priced screwdriver which can work effectively. No point wasting on lower priced products which just sits in some corner of you home.

Rolson 70740 Cordless Screwdriver, 4.8 V : Very pleased with this product. Arrived swiftly, just what i need at the present time.

Good quality reliable driver, fully recommended.

My old screwdriver finally gave up, i was unsure which one to get, i am so please i got this one ,very handy little tool, very reasonably priced.

Brilliant tool better than dear ones.

Bought this for my mum as part of a package with a bit set, she charged it and once it was fully charged the green light was meant to stay on although this didn’t it was charged and ready to go. This is much better to handle than a normal screwdriver and it is easier for her because of the shape more of a squeezing action which gives her more control.

Good handy little driver,every tool kit should have one sutable for small jobs.

The screwdriver arrived well on time, and in first-class condition. I have already used the product several times, and have been impressed by its solid performance.

What a cool little work piece, sturdy, long battery life, more powerful then it would at first appear. All in all a good bit of kit.

I never touch diy items but love this .

8v this has some serious power. This has unscrewed everything i have thrown at it and i use it daily as a tradesman. I would highly recommend it and the battery seems to last forever.

If you are as clumsy as i am or have weak or small hands this wee gadget is amazing – it may not be for the big jobs but trust me it’s great for the little tasks that crop up. It also means i don’t have to be a wimp because my ms means i no longer have the strength to do little things sometimes – like put in or take out screws, that really annoys me this means at least i can try and it’s not let me down – best buy in a long time.

This is a very good and useful product. My black & decker job packed up and i prefer this one.

I didn’t want to spend a small fortune on a major branded screwdriver. I only want to put shelves and hanging baskets up, not renovate my house, so i went for this cheap and cheerful little chappy. It has enough power to screw into masonry with no effort involved. Unfortunately i had to only give it four stars due to the supplied screwdriver bits, they’re too long and waggle about. I use the much shorter ones from my torque set and they work perfectly. If you’ve got the bits, i recommend it.

Excellent service i’m very happy with the screwdriver i did have a 3. 6 one a great difference handy for small gobs about the house i’d go for one again recommended to a frien yes.

Didnt stay charged for very long.

A bit on the small side but works perfectly.

    1. Super quality,excellent service, could not be more pleased.
  4. Very handy driver and useful for low key drilling jobs with crafts.
      1. Plenty of power to do what i needed which was to build flat pack furniture. They always say not use power tools when building flat pack but this was perfect for the job. Not too much and not too little. Just be warned, it takes 5 hours to charge and you get 20 minutes battery life using it as a cordless tool.
