Take Skil’s cheap little iXO 4V lithium-ion driver, cut the pistol grip off it, and glue it to the front of a standard tubular flashlight, and you’ve got Skil’s #2350-01 “2-in-1 cordless screwdriver and flashlight.” Yes, it looks a little funny. But I won’t get bitten the same way I did when I expressed my disinterest in Black & Decker’s iXO-like driver a while back. See, I thought “Who would want a pistol-grip cordless screwdriver with an integrated battery and no variable speed?” Answer: Sean’s wife, who back then spent a lot of time opening and closing ATMs which have (wait for it) — about a million machine screws in them. She loved the idea of a sub-$40 driver that fit the bill fine for that simple task. Assuming the 2350 removes screws similarly well, I’m betting the flashlight would’ve come in handy for her.
That said, the 2350 checks in at a little more than $40 — more like $50 to $60 based on a current Google search. Still, I can see some use cases for this. Just don’t imagine that it’ll have anywhere near the widespread application you’d get from something like a Bosch PS20 or other-branded equivalents.
Update: It’s $37 at Amazon right now.
