A handy little accessory that you didn’t know you needed.

There are so many times in my life that I’ve suffered from a cramped hand thanks to the use of a manual screwdriver. I like the precision of a handheld screwdriver versus a power drill, which is why I tend to stick with them instead of electric alternatives. That said, I was recently introduced to a very simple, but powerful electric screwdriver that I instantly fell in love with.

WOWSTICK 1fs Electric Screwdriver REVIEW

The WOWSTICK 1fs Electric Screwdriver is a one of a kind cordless power screwdriver perfect for use on home appliances and other small assembly jobs. The case of the tool is made from aluminum alloy and it’s powered by 2-AAA batteries. The screwdriver has what’s called a quick-change chuck installed on its tip to make changing bits in and out quick and easy. Even though the WOWSTICK comes with several different bit sizes, this chuck makes it compatible with all micro (4mm) bits. The screwdriver comes with a slim magnetic carrying case that keeps the tool and its 18 bits contained and ready to go at a moment’s notice. The screwdriver spins at a speed of 150 r/min with a full battery charge.

Included with the screwdriver are the following bit sizes:

  • Pentagon 0.8
  • Pentagon 1.2
  • Pentagon 1.5
  • Hexagon T5, T6, T8
  • Cross PH000, PH0, PH2
  • – 1.0, 2.0, 3.0
  • Hexagon H2.5, H3.0, U3.0, Y2.5
  • Triangle 3.0
  • Square S0

WOWSTICK 1fs Electric Screwdriver REVIEW

While this little screwdriver is intended for use around the house, I actually found a really great use for it when I was installing some SSDs into a hard drive enclosure and found myself dealing with many tiny screws. These screws were used to secure the drives to their trays. I started screwing the drive into the trays manually and about halfway through, I picked up the WOWSTICK and got done with the job twice as fast.

Working with the screwdriver is very easy. As I mentioned above, the screwdriver is powered by 2-AAA batteries, which are not included, and that is probably the worst thing about it. I would love to see this be rechargeable or come with rechargeable batteries. Even so, the battery door can be unscrewed with a simple coin or flathead screwdriver. Once the battery door is tightened, the screwdriver can be turned on by pressing the button on the side of the casing. The button is sort of a lever and you can press up or down on it. If you press one way, the screwdriver will spin clockwise and if you press the other way, it will spin counterclockwise.

The controls are very intuitive and it’s ultra portable. This is one of those devices that I didn’t think I needed until I was introduced to it. Now, I can’t really live without it. I’ve not worn out the first set of batteries yet, but I’ve only used it a few times thus far. With extended use, I would estimate that you would need to change the batteries more often. It’s a great little device and one that I think most people — regardless of their type of use — would enjoy having it.
