- I like the Hitachi 3DL more
We use a lot of cordless screwdrivers in the electronics Repair and Overhaul business. Both as screwdrivers and lightweight drills for plastic, aluminum and mild alloy steel.
The gyroscopic speed/direction control of the DeWalt DCF680N2 is a nice convenience. It's basically a variable speed/variable direction drill motor without the need to flip switches and gears before using. It also has a nice feature that basically disengages drive when the screw bit loses firm contact with the screw head; hence minimizing stripped heads.
Problem is that these features, realized through electronic control of the motor, aren't without cost.
The screwdriver doesn't provide the torque you'd expect from a 10Vdc unit and max RPMs are a bit lower then I'd want for a light drill.
I'm also not too happy with the LiON battery and charger.
The battery doesn't seem to hold up as well at the Hitachi unit. The charger light goes on when a battery is inserted but doesn't go off after the battery is charged. I would have expected DeWalt to do better.
