Skil iXO2 Cordless Palm Sized Screwdriver

ixo2.jpgSkil's entry in the 'Smallest Tool in America' contest is the iXO2 Cordless Palm Sized Screwdriver. Although it's pretty tiny, it looks like it has the power to become the go-to screwdriver for around-the-house needs.

The iXO2 comes with a cradle charger and a 22 piece bit set (including one drill bit). The battery is a Li-Ion so the tool is light as can be, not even hitting the one pound mark. There's a built-in work light and a charge indicator on the tool as well. According to Skil, the iXO2 holds a battery charge for up to 18 months, so it should always be ready to go, even after you lose it in the kitchen junk drawer for a year.

This tool retails for around $40, which isn't bad for something that can fit just about anywhere and can be stored just about anywhere. To us, it looks like a good tool to have around the house for hanging pictures, putting up blinds; all those jobs where it's really a hassle to break out the full-sized screw gun.
