How Much Power Does an Electric Screwdriver Need?

The amount of work you’re planning will rely on the electric screwdriver you buy. Electric screwdrivers with a higher voltage tend to be more powerful. The motor speed of an electric screwdriver is reviled by the revolutions per minute, a higher RPM carries out tasks easier.

For tougher jobs, use a corded power drill. For every day jobs, consider how much battery life is needed before your you start, to make sure your electric screwdriver doesn't fail mid-job.

Top Tip: Small screwdrivers are best for light drilling, and cover a range of household jobs. More powerful screwdrivers – or even drills – are better for tougher jobs.

Some electric screwdrivers give control features, giving more control by adjustable torques. This allows the twist force to match the screw size.
