Can anyone recommend a good cordless screwdriver with good power that isn't too expensive?

We really need to know your budget mate. You might think 100 quid is expensive,however you might think 250 quid is reasonable.

do you mean a cordless screwdriver
a drill driver for screwing and drilling
a hammer drill for screwing and drilling and masonry holes
or a impact mainly for heavy screwing :dunno:

Unless you need it for tight corners, or you are a Larry Limpwrist :lol: , then you may as well buy a decent drill driver. Plenty of good deals around for a cordless and two batteries for £100.

I use my little 10.8 volt Bosch driver more than most and it's brilliant until it gave up the ghost yesterday. Only 6 months oldish so should be able to exchange no probs.

It has fantastic torque.

I assume this is a one off as Bosch blue are normally very good.

What do you mean by Bosch blue? Is the one I suggested no good? It has great reviews, I have a makita drill/driver just want something smaller

Well as Stevie said it all depends what you need it for mate. 7.2v isn't really up to much imo. If it's just for around the house I'd go for the 10.8v. The brand you choose would depend on your budget.

This is the one I have:

I've been really impressed with it and it's took loads of abuse since I've had it.
