Is it worth buying a budget screwdriver for home?
Cordless screwdrivers are among the most common varieties of power tools, together with a drill and grinder. For small installation and repair work, you can even use a standard screwdriver, but for medium-sized work it is better to use a screwdriver to screw in self-tapping screws and screws (for example, when installing drywall),
since the number of fastening elements is in the hundreds.
There are several parameters that you should definitely pay attention to when buying:
This mechanism allows the chuck to rotate, but in the opposite direction. Use it to unscrew bolts or screws. Almost all modern screwdrivers have such a mechanism.
Everything here is selected depending on what kind of work you plan to carry out. In fact, even high speed models have a speed reduction mechanism.
There are many different device models available in the construction market, and sometimes it seems that buying an inexpensive device is not so bad. We offer you the TOP budget screwdrivers 2020, which contain the best and really inexpensive models.

Let's move on to the second device.
Еdо n С F -1202
In continuation of the rating, consider another budget screwdriver for the house - a good "Chinese" from the Edon trademark. The tool is similar in many aspects to the previous model, but there are some differences, which will be described below. This screwdriver is 0.2 kg lighter than the previous one, i.e.
it weighs 0.9 kg. It is made in a good plastic case with red and black design colors. The diameter of the chuck is also 1 cm.
The screwdriver is not inferior in performance to the model described above - the torque reaches 30 N * m, and the idle turnover reaches 1300 rpm.
There are two operating speeds with electronic frequency control, backlight, reverse, and battery overload protection. The power button can be locked for continuous operation without effort.

Now let's look at the third model in the TOP, which takes the well-deserved bronze.
Onmmе r AC D 122
So, the next in the rating is a screwdriver, which was developed by engineers from a well-known company in Germany Hammer.
The model is almost in no way inferior to the two above-described devices, and even surpasses them in some way, and also has additional interesting functions. Interestingly, such a budget drill / screwdriver weighs more than the previous models - 1.3 kg, mainly due to the fact that it is larger in size and has a battery with a larger capacity.
The device is made in the form of a pistol, the body is made of durable plastic of dark green color, a high-tech design solution. The diameter of the cartridge is 1 cm.
It is interesting that two speeds of operation are supported for operation with the regulation of the electron rotation frequency, as well as a simple reverse in terms of switching. The idle speed limit reaches 1200 rpm, and the torque is 15 N * m. If you use a screwdriver as a drill, then the maximum drilling diameter for metal will be approximately 0.5 cm, and for wood 1.5 cm.
The screwdriver operates on a nickel-cadmium battery with a capacity of 1.2 A * h. The maximum operating voltage is 12 V, and usually uses a standard (and in no case impulse) charger to charge the battery. It takes 3 hours to fully charge. Of the useful devices and functions, it is worth highlighting the lock of the start button, a lamp with a point suspension, a magnetic holder that is on the body, a building level (it is mounted in the body).
As standard, you will find the screwdriver itself, a case and two batteries.
We suggest considering a device of domestic origin.
Yes, now it is worth paying attention to screwdrivers, which managed to take not only the last positions within the rating. According to the Exertologu version, this is an excellent, inexpensive and reliable screwdriver.Despite the fact that the assembly is carried out in the same China, among the serious advantages of the device is a 5-year warranty from production, as well as a widespread network of service centers throughout Russia.
The dimensions of the device are 29.2 * 19. 6 * 7 cm, and packing 29.3 * 19. 5 * 7.
5 cm, weight 1 kg, but if you weigh the device in the package, it will be 1.5 kg. The screwdriver is made in the most popular pistol form factor with a highly visible design. The diameter of the chuck is variable and can be from 0.8 to 1 cm.
The tool at idle speed is capable of developing a speed of up to 1300 rpm per minute, and the maximum torque is 25 N * m (which is a good indicator for low speeds). There are also two operating speeds with electronic regulation of the frequency of rotation, simple switching to reverse and there is the possibility of fixing the spindle. The gearbox has two speeds of the planetary type, and makes it possible not only to screw in screws with high torque, but also to drill effectively at high speeds.
There is also a forced motor braking function, electronic overload protection, pulse operation. If you use this budget screwdriver as a drill, then the maximum diameter for metal will be 1 cm, and for wood all 2.
1 cm.Of useful additional functions, it is worth highlighting the spotlight for the workplace as well as a magnetic socket built into the housing for attaching bits ... The operating voltage is standard and is 12 V.
The lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 1.3 A * h. The impulse charger allows you to perform a quick charge in only 1 hour. The delivery set of the screwdriver, charger and battery device includes 5 cm RN and RZ bits.
Now let's consider another domestic-made screwdriver.
Also, the experts decided not to bypass another interesting screwdriver, whose trademark is also domestic. For the first time a product called "Whirlwind".
It left the production line of the motor-building plant in Kuibyshev (now in Samara) in 1974. At the moment, the production is located in the PRC. This model lags behind the others in performance and power quite noticeably, and this is expressed, first of all, in the idle speed indicator - only 550 rpm, but the cost of the tool is also much lower.
The torque can be up to 16 N * m, and only one operating speed is supported with an electronic speed control system (22 steps) + reverse. The diameter of the cartridge is variable and ranges from 0.
0.8 to 1 cm.When working with metal during drilling, the maximum diameter can be obtained in 0.8 cm, and with wood 1. 8 cm.
The power button has a lock, and in the case there is a built-in holder for bits on a magnetic basis. The tool operates on a nickel-cadmium battery with a capacity of 1.5 A * h and an operating voltage of 12 V.
There are three more devices left. How will they surprise us?
VO R T BAV-10.
Oddly enough, but third from the end we again have a German, though also of Chinese assembly. The Bort trademark is the property of the well-known holding company SBM Group. On a contract basis, production has been established in the PRC. The budget house screwdriver from Bort weighs 1 kg. It is made in the form of a pistol in the form factor, like all the others.
The battery fits completely into the grip and there are no protrusions on the bottom. The body is made of high-strength plastic, usually blue, and the start button stands out against this background (orange).
As in the above model, there would be only one speed mode with electronic speed control, and at idle speed the frequency reaches up to 550 rpm, and the maximum torque is 18 N * m. There is also a reverse, a forced engine brake, and while working in the "drill" mode, you can get the maximum hole diameter - for metal it will be 0.8 cm, and for wood all 2 cm.
The tool is powered by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 1.3 A * h, and has an operating voltage of 10. 8 V. For a full charge, you will need to wait 3 hours (use a standard charger, not a pulse one). Additional functions are blocking of the "start" button, a lamp to illuminate the working area.
Consider the following tool.
There is another model, which is the penultimate one in our rating, and its name suggests an association for the German trade mark. But this impression is deceptive, and in fact it is also a Russian trade mark. The production of the electric tool itself is carried out in China. The dimensions of the package are 0.
21 * 0.06 * 0.19 meters. The weight of the device is the same as that of the previous model - only 1 kg. The design is a little more interesting, the colors are contrasting, expressive - a combination of black and bright yellow.
The body material is high quality plastic, and the chuck diameter can vary from 0.08 to 1 cm.
There is only one high-speed mode with the possibility of electronic regulation of revolutions to a maximum, which is 550 revolutions per minute. The torque is capable of developing up to 16 N * m. There is also forced engine braking and reverse.
When working with a screwdriver as a drill, the maximum hole size on metal will be 0.8 cm, and for wood 1.6 cm.The tool operates on a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 1.3 A * h and an operating voltage of 10.
8 V. The charger is standard, not impulse, and the full charge time from zero will be 2 hours, but most users noted that even 1 hour is enough for a full charge. For ease of use and safety, the power button has a lock, and a compact LED lamp is built into the body, as well as a bit holder (magnetic).
And consider the last device in the rating of budget screwdrivers.
And at the very end we will consider one more screwdriver, which has a domestic development and Chinese assembly. This brand appeared on the device market back in 2001, and was able to quickly gain recognition from consumers due to its low cost with good performance from the technical side. Actually, this was a completely deliberate policy of the manufacturer, since the use of options with dubious necessity was minimized, which made the screwdriver very affordable.
And here a higher power immediately catches our eyes when compared with the last three devices.
Due to the fact that it uses a battery with an increased capacity, the upper limit of the idle speed is 1150 rpm, and the torque reaches up to 18 N * m. The cartridge diameter is 1 cm, and only one speed mode is provided. There is a reverse. If you use the device in drill mode, the hole size will be up to 1 cm for metal, and 3 cm for wood. There is also a lock for the "start" button.
The screwdriver is made in a laconic design in the form of a pistol. The battery is large, powerful, and together with some other details added weight to the product - 2. 6 kg in total. The capacity of the nickel-cadmium battery is 1.2 A * h, and the operating voltage is 18 V.
The declared time for a full recharge from a standard charger (not impulse) is 1 hour. The delivery set of the screwdriver includes a compact case for transportation / carrying.Of the advantages, I highlighted the fact that the price is affordable for everyone, the tool is reliable, the charging time is short, the battery capacity is large, the case and power / performance indicators.
