Tacklife SDH13DC Advanced Cordless Screwdriver 3.6-Volt 2000mAh MAX Torque Review

Screwdrivers come in handy, and that rings even truer for cordless, lightweight designs. You can use these appliances for many different household tasks, with all the advantages that only a cordless tool can offer. Portability is the most important feature because it allows you the freedom you are looking for.

Corded designs tend to limit the area you can work in, while also restricting your freedom of movement during the task. You need power outlets, and you have to be within a certain distance, making the whole ordeal rather cumbersome. A cordless design doesn’t have these limitations.

Another important aspect is versatility, both the appliance’s and yours. Some designs feature a multi-position handle that allows you to the tool in different ways. The fact that there is no cord, grants you the same versatility when it comes to body positioning.

You can get under a bed or climb under the table, which would be extremely difficult with a corded screwdriver. It’s child’s play with a portable one.

The third advantage is easy transport. These appliances weigh only a few pounds or sometimes even less than that. You can easily carry them in a bag, box, or even your coat pocket, if it is big enough for the screwdriver. Safety is also important, and these designs don’t use electricity to operate, only for recharging.

If you need to complete a quick task around the house or you have to go somewhere and you want to pack light but need a tool like that, the Tacklife SDH13DC is a pretty good bet. This cordless screwdriver boasts all the above-described convenient features.

Technical Features

  • Package contents: The package includes the screwdriver, a drill bit set with 31 different bits, a USB charging cable, a user manual, a maintenance card as well as the package box. There are no fancy extensions or any other gimmicks, just the essential.
  • Engine: The Tacklife SDH13DC has a very powerful motor. It is capable of a maximum torque of 4Nm and has a no-load speed of 200 RPM. This is enough to effectively screw and unscrew any bolts if the bit matches the screw’s pattern. It is a compact design that takes up less space and produces less noise than the previous versions made by the manufacturer.
  • Torque adjustment: The torque adjustment feature allows you to screw bolts without stripping, which is ideal for the smaller jobs that require precision rather than sheer force. If you adjust it, you can find the best combination of power and comfort for any tasks.
  • Pre and Post-LED light: The Tacklife SDH13DC has a feature that should be a basic for any cordless screwdriver, an LED light. This design takes it even further and features not one, but two such lights, a Pre-LED and a Post-LED light. We are talking about two separate lights, one (pre-LED) for the work, and a separately controlled light that you can use as a torch. The pre-LED light only turns on when you are using the appliance, whereas the Post-LED light is a separate light source located at the bottom of the screwdriver.
  • Three-position handle: The angle of the drill can be set to three different positions. All you have to do is push a button, located on the side. Once you do that, you are free to find the best angle to fit your needs the most.
  • Portable, lightweight design: The drill weighs 1.2 pounds, which is considered very light even among cordless screwdrivers. This – along with the versatile handle – makes the Tacklife SDH13DC a highly portable design.
  • USB-recharging: You can recharge the battery through a computer or other home appliance, provided they have a USB port. This is a very convenient, welcome feature.
  • Circuit board: The appliance features a highly capable circuit board that makes the machine hum like a bird. The design is very safe – the board is in the handle – and therefore not prone to overheating.
