Bosch PS10-2 10.8V I-Driver

Bosch_lion_driver.jpgBosch has recently released the PS10-2 10.8V I-Driver, a little battery-powered screw driver, and it looks like a pretty interesting tool. Unlike most of the other battery screwdrivers this one is hinged right up at the driver end, as opposed to the center of the tool. This, as well as the fact that the hinge is capable of a 90 degree swing, allows the driver to fit in places that the others wouldn't have a chance of fitting. The entire head length is a short 3-1/2".

According to the Bosch website, the 10.8V I-Driver is capable of driving 100 3-inch screws on a single battery charge. Not bad for something the size of a flashlight. The 10.8V Driver is powered by a Lithium-Ion battery, which means longer life, lighter weight and no more of the long slow battery fade.

Makita 18 Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Angle Grinder

makita_cordless_grinder.jpgIn the ongoing attempt to make a cordless version of every single tool in the world, Makita has recently released their 18 Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Angle Grinder. The tool takes a 4-1/2 inch grinding wheel and whirls around at 10,000 RPM. This is impressive for a battery tool, considering that the corded Bosch and DeWalt grinders rotate at 11,000 RPM. The Makita weighs 5.6 lbs, which is heavier than the average corded grinder, and has a slide switch. The tool comes with two batteries and a 45 minute charger.

The 18 Volt Makita Cordless Grinder could definitely come in handy in a crawl space or some other spot where trailing a 20' extension cord is impractical, but at it's current price (over $375), it's quite an investment, particularly when most regular grinders can be obtained for a hundred dollars or less.

Hitachi 3.6 Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Screwdriver

hitachi_cordless_screwdriver.jpgHitachi has recently released a 3.6 Volt Cordless Screwdriver and it looks like a pretty versatile tool that could help out both the contractor and the homeowner. Weighing less than a pound and under a foot long, this little cordless fits in situations that would render the regular battery drill useless. The 3.6 Volt Lithium Ion battery should be enough to get most small to medium size tasks completed.

Two speeds, a built-in work light, and a quick 30 minute battery charge round out another nice looking tool from Hitachi.
