This nickel-metal hydride Draper bridges the gap between the nickel cadmium tools and the latest lithium-ion-powered kit. It certainly has some punch as it’s rated at 519Nm and was barely troubled by our over-tightened bolt. You pay for this and you only get low-capacity 2Ah batteries. Plus, it’s no lightweight, pushing 3kg with a real nose-heavy balance. We also found the slider bar tricky to use with the thumb as it’s sculpted into the motor housing.
