I have a lot of screwdrivers. My favorite set for repairing tech gadgets is my trusty set iFixit Pro Technology Toolkitbut the set has so many parts that I don’t want to take it out and carry it with me in case I drop it, forget it, or get it stolen.

This Wera compact screwdriver set deal with all of that. This is a screwdriver set that I can fit in my pocket or bag without sacrificing quality or strength.

And this screwdriver has some cool hidden tricks.

First, it can go from a short screwdriver to a long screwdriver (and vice versa) at the touch of a button.

This is super handy for tackling a wide range of tasks. I was a bit skeptical about this feature at first because I was worried it would make the screwdriver flimsy, but it’s not.

It gives me all the versatility of a small screwdriver and the ability to turn it into a larger screwdriver for heavier jobs.

This mechanism is super powerful and reliable. I put all my weight on this screwdriver — I’m a big guy — and it didn’t budge.

The other hidden feature is the handle that holds six screwdriver bits, tucked away in a compartment that you can access by pressing a button at the top.

I like this design. It’s small enough for me to slip into my pocket for jobs where I know I’ll only need a screwdriver — things like changing my graphics card or swapping out door locks — but it’s versatile enough that I can have it ready. ready for anything.

The screwdriver is also magnetic, having “just right” magnetic pull — enough to hold the screw head firmly in place, not so much that it gets pulled all over the inside of a PC or some other delicate kit.

This screwdriver excels in what a lot of “multi-purpose” screwdrivers fail — it’s really hard. Although there are built-in mechanisms for the body and handle, it feels a lot like a regular screwdriver in the hand.

Six bits not enough for your needs? That’s what I think!

So don’t want to miss the screwdriver part, I got it too 30-piece bit set I can put it in my pocket with a screwdriver if I think I’ll need more. This has a very good selection of slotted, Torx, hex, Phillips and Pozidriv bits.

These bits are very hard and of excellent quality.

All in all, this is a great set. A screwdriver is better, stronger, more versatile, and not much bigger than the multi-tools people carry around (to be honest, I think this is a better alternative to those tools). expensive all-in-one for a fraction of the money), and even adding extra bits doesn’t add much cost or bulk to the kit.
