The best electric screwdriver should be powerful, versatile and comfortable enough to make putting flat pack furniture together almost effortless. In a nutshell electric screwdrivers are made to take the hard work out of a myriad of basic DIY jobs. One of the most important features to note is that the best electric screwdrivers are designed with more than one handle position for maximum comfort and ease of use.
Battery power is also an important consideration as is the battery capacity and charge time between use. Some electric screwdrivers come with a USB charger too. The battery power is directly proportional to the maximum torque the electric screwdriver can generate. For improved control look out for the number of torque settings that the screwdriver provides.
The weight of any handheld tool is important, particularly for prolonged use, and the electric screwdriver is no exception. More powerful versions will tend to weigh more though.
Finally don’t overlook the number and types of accessories included in the package.
