Silly me....
on: February 20, 2007, 02:43:50 AM
I thought all Squirts were created equal.  I got my second Squirt model today, a P4 and I instantly noticed a couple of differences.  The first one, well, besides the different plier head (duh!) was the lack of tweezers.  As you can see, the P4 (blue one) has a small reamer/awl instead of the removeable tweezers found on the E4 (red one).

The other interesting difference is the simplified phillips driver, similar to the one found on the Micra- basically a hunk of metal that comes more or less to a point, rather than the E4's actual 4 pointed phillips head.

I kind of like the P4, especially since I don't do much electrical work.  I once tried to build a model car with a small motor in it.  The car burst into flames as soon as I installed the AA batteries.  It didn't even wait for me to turn it on.  I took that as an omen to stay far away from electricity!  I think I prefer the phillips on the E4 though, but I think overall I would get more use out of the standard plier head on the P4, plus I rarely use tweezers.  If I need them, I usually also have a SAK, but then that also usually covers the awl as well, so I guess it's redundant either way.

Does the bottle opener on the E4 work any better than the atrocity that is the P4 opener?

The bottle opener seems to be exactly the same, so I guess it wouldn't be any better or worse.

Look at me with egg on my face- they are apparently different too, although I don't know if such a slight difference would make it any easier to open a bottle.  I will have to do some research in that particular direction!

Regarding the two types of phillips screwdrivers:
At first glance, it seems like the E4 one would be better, but it is limited in which size screws it fits. I played around with both, and actually found the P4 (flat blade type) one more useful. It fits a larger variety of philips screws, especially the smaller sizes.
In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

After extensive testing I have determined that there appears to be no difference in the bottle opening capacity of either implement.  I would like to mention however how much I love you guyssss.......
