Bosch IXO 3.6V Cordless Screwdriver

Clockwise from top - Bosch IXO III 3.6V Cordless Screwdriver, Cradle/Recharger with bit holder, Right-Angle Driver, Torque Adapter

The Bosch IXO Cordless Screwdriver is a portable motorised electric screwdriver. It is shaped like a cute little mini-raygun from a 1950’s sci-fi movie and is very comfortable to hold in the hand. It has a 3.6V electric motor and is powered by an inbuilt Lithium Ion battery. The screwdriver’s bit holder takes standard screwdriver bits with hex socket heads. To help you see where you are screwing, there is a yellow LED torch located below the hit bolder that illuminates the surface directly in front of the bit.

The Bosch IXO III boxed set comes in a metal tin that also contains:

  • 10 screwdriver bits including 4 Philips Head, 2 Flat Head, 2 Torx (star) and 2 Hex
  • The charger, which also serves as a cradle and bit holder
  • A torque-limiting adapter, with 9 different torque settings, to prevent you from accidentally screwing things in too far, damaging the screw head, thread or hole
  • A right-angle adapter, that allows you to drive screws at a 90 degree angle, for screws located in awkward locations

I purchased it from my local ThriftyLink hardware store for $120.
