Coleman Flashcell 5.4-Volt Cordless Screwdriver
If you've ever wanted a cordless screwdriver that charged so fast it was at risk of opening a worm hole, your day has come. Coleman's Flashcell 5.4-volt screwdriver charges in all of 90 seconds, shorter than the time it takes for Paula Abdul to ramble out her opinion on American Idol.
This tool has actually been out for well over a year and we've been meaning to write about it, but we figured we'd wait to see if it caught on or not. At the moment, Coleman's Flashcell website happily announces that the item is sold out and that you can email them to get on a waiting list. We also saw that it's at Amazon, with no indication of being sold out. To further confuse us, an old Gizmodo post from October 07 states that the tool costs $100. But back at Amazon, it's currently being peddled for $40. Not exactly an indicator of a high demand item.
Either way, it does look like an interesting tool and particularly handy for all of you city apartment dwellers out there who don't have a need for a larger cordless driver and who live in such a fast-paced world that even the 90 second charging time is bordering on too long.
