The Muchmore Professional Electric Power Driver is the perfect solution for any RC enthusiast that wants a power driver, without the hassles of hauling around a large power drill. Measuring in at 5.5" long, and 1.5" in diameter at the widest part of the handle, this driver will fit into almost any tool box and will not take up much space on your work bench. It features a supple, non slip rubber grip that helps reduce fatigue during long wrench sessions, combined with a LED light that will illuminate the hard to see areas inside your model.
The 1/4" drive quick release chuck will accept any 1/4" drive tip, and prevents the tip from pulling out of the driver when you try to pull the tool out of the fastener. Plus, it has a built in USB rechargeable Li-Ion battery that will deliver up to 40 minutes of constant run time. This should provide enough run time to keep you wrenching for an hours without needing to recharge.

First of note is the battery life. They estimate 50 minutes of consistent use and so far I have used it for a few wrench sessions already as well as a major one yesterday where I was swapping chassis on my eb210 and apparently it had used very little charge because when I plugged it in to charge up again, it was full in a little over five minutes when the estimated charge time from dead is roughly 60 minutes. So for being so small this thing really packs a punch as far as power goes.
Next thing I liked was that the motor locks when not in use so you can go straight to hand driving after using the electric motor to drive it in 90% of the way. This makes a big difference if you've got arthritis other joint pain. Especially with how comfortably the grip is. A nice soft rubber texture soft edges. The buttons could be raised a little more for easier use but I suppose this prevents it from starting accidentally in a tool box.
One more thing I really liked is what it does when you release the button to stop driving, it backs itself off by a 1/8 turn or so which is useful if you drive too deep into plastic since some drivers will keep going with their momentum.
Overall a solid purchase if the weight of a traditional driver is not ideal for you :)
The battery life is awesome! When I 1st opened the package I went ahead and put it on the charger because I had a TLR 22T 4.0 kit that I was getting ready to start building with this driver. 20mins on the charger and the light was green. The build began. I was very pleased with this driver doing this build. No more tired wrist from screwing in so many screw! And the best part, this driver will cut off at 2Nm of torque so you’re not likely to over tighten and strip out. however, some screws you will definitely want to be mindful of not letting the driver stop on its own because it can strip some screws. I was able to build this whole kit from start to finish without having to recharge and was able to build it quicker than if I had to hand screw everything. I really wish I would’ve had this last month when I built my TLR 22 5.0 Elite!!
I'll end by saying, I have a $375 ArrowMax tool kit that I absolutely love but I can see myself going for this driver and my MIP bits when I've got several screws to deal with! If you’re r in the market for tools..... I would suggest this. for roughly $90 invested in this driver and some MIP bits, you've pretty much got a good start for some easy building and maintenance.
