Most manufacturers seem to be using li-ion battery technology to create lighter versions of existing cordless tools, or high-voltage tools that would have been too heavy for use with older battery technologies. Bosch however, seems to have also used the opportunities presented by lithium ion to dream up tools that have never even existed. Last year, they scored big hits with the PS-20 Pocket Driver and I-driver, which redefined ideas about drills and screwdrivers at the same time. This year, they’ve extended that out-of-the-box thinking to impact drivers, with the Litheon “Impactor”, and it is another jaw-dropper. Impact drivers are smaller and lighter than cordless drills, but because they have a simple hammering function and are geared specifically to spin fast, they produce about three times the torque of a drill. This means an impact driver will put in screws, bolts, and other fasteners much faster than a drill would. They can drill holes, too. What they won’t do is drill holes big
