NexTool is shaping up to be the Wenger to Leatherman's Victorinox. They'll probably never knock them off the throne, but I appreciate the willingness to try weird stuff.

They'd be better off just making it a ratcheting driver rather than electric, the 230mah battery won't last long.  I'd love to see an IP rating for the screwdriver and charging system to, can't see one though.

Is it me, or is this thing massive?

First I misunderstood the title.  :facepalm:

I thought that with "electric screwdriver" a screwdriver rated for 1000V electric work was meant. This is rather the thing missing in all multitools. Till now I never saw a multitool insulated enough for real elecric work. So I was expecting that somebody had this idea and  at least the screwdriver in the Nextool would be insulated enough. I was wrong. :D
(Or maybe it could be with all the moving parts, but I don't want to try it out.)


It is nice that they try new ideas, but I don't see massive use for an electric bit driver. Do they take new ideas somewhere? Designing a multitool for real electric work would be some interesting idea. Not for real electricians - they always need a proper toolkit for their work. But for people like me which have to work sometimes near live voltage (telephone/network installations near or in electric distribution boxes for example...).
