Skil Twist 4.8-Volt Screwdriver

skil_twist_1.jpgskil_twist_2.jpg

We noticed the Skil Twist the other day while researching our post on their iXO3. The Twist has similar functionality to other low-voltage screwdrivers with the hinged body, but the difference here is that the handle twists instead of folding. The tool also has the general pug-nosed look of Skil's iXO series, and this body-type allows for getting in some tight spots.

Judging from our impressions of other low voltage Skil tools, our bet is that this little guy works fine and that the 4.8-volts is enough to handle any light-duty tasks around the house. It costs about $30 which is about half the price of the Milwaukee and roughly the same as a similar Black & Decker model.

It's also worth noting that, unlike the Milwaukee, the Skil has an on-board battery, so the only charger needed is an a/c adapter that plugs directly into the tool.
