I have now owned two Black & Decker Cordless Pivot Screwdrivers. I would recommend it to anyone, but especially to women. My husband purchased my new cordless pivot driver for me as a replacement for my old one when the old one's battery (after several years) would no longer hold a charge. When I received the new corless pivot driver for my birthday I was thrilled. I built a deck, a playhouse for my daughter, a garden gate, a pet door, and a screen for my unsightly and badly placed air conditioning unit with my first cordless pivot driver. I have also completed countless small home improvement and do it yourself projects using both the old and the new drivers. The driver is so powerful, I usually don't even need to drill a pilot hole. So it saves me time and aggravation. It also requires less upper body strength to operate than larger tools with less power. When I found myself in the market for a new cordless driver I thought that maybe I would "upgrade", but I couldn't find anything else that I liked as well, much less a different tool that I liked better. This tool is small enough for women (with smaller hands) to use easily. It is also compact enough to fit in some tight places where larger and heavier drivers can't go.
