Brando Screwdriver Set 

Do not think of this as something to get oil stained in the garage or that languishes in the shed. This is more like a piece of jewellery it even comes in a box that might otherwise contain a necklace or perhaps a bracelet read on to find the contents.

There is a 17.5cm long driver holder which has three LEDs lighting the end and the case also contains no less than 18 different drivers in three see through plastic sleeves each containing six drivers.

The case is 22.5cm long with the two parts held together by four magnetised points two on each side that means whichever side you pull away the other will still contain the drive holder and driver parts.

Each one of the 18 different drivers fits in the end of driver holder making the total length 19cm.

The end of the driver unit has a thumb twist screw mechanism which requires 2x‘AAA’ batteries (not supplied).

9cm from the back of the driver on one side is a black 3cm long rocker button push the front end and the three LED lights come on and whatever size driver you have in is turned clockwise, touch the rear part of the rocker and the driver is turned counter clockwise.

The small 16x6cm instruction sheet one side in English and the other in Chinese explains the basics.

The unit is called a Power Screwdriver Tool and just below the control button on the side of the driver is WOW which I assume is related to its name WOWSTICK 1FS.

In the past I reviewed a lot of items from Brando ‘Everything USB’ when they had a base in the UK now it seems they have moved back to China and this and another item yet to be reviewed was shipped in two days and delivered by courier so should be available as a Christmas Gift.

My only concern is that the bits get removed from the plastic case and not returned only to end up getting trodden on but that’s the same with any item with small pieces. Brando have provided three plastic sleeves with a rubber bung at each end the rest is up to the you the products user to keep the bits.

A list of the 18 supplied heads is shown on the link but any 4mm driver bit should fit the chuck.

‘The best innovative portable cordless power screwdriver for home appliances, electronics as well as hobbies and crafts made from a quality aluminium alloy. Convenient "thumb switch" operation on LED torch/CW and CCW screwing. Powered by 2 x AAA batteries (NOT included). A quick-change chuck makes changing bits easy on this power screwdriver. The chuck is compatible with all micro (4mm) bits. The slim magnetic carry case will keep the 18 screw heads in place so as they don't go missing or get left behind anywhere.’ The above is what they say on their website and can be read along with lots of helpful illustrations on the link at the end.

The WOWSTICK 1FS available for $62 (US) from the link below.
