World's Smallest Most Powerful Pocket Driver Lauched by Bosch

Published on March 23, 2006 at 8:44 AM

Bosch Power Tools and Accessories announced the launch of the world’s smallest, most powerful ultra-compact LITHEON™ 10.8-volt Pocket Driver (PS20). Forty-percent lighter and 33-percent more productive than other ultra-compact drill/drivers, the Pocket Driver is small enough to fit into a tool belt pouch and lightweight and powerful enough to accomplish a majority of professional drill/driving tasks all day without fatigue. The Pocket Driver is powered by LITHEON, the industry’s most advanced lithium-ion battery technology.

For carpenters, remodelers, electricians, woodworkers and more, the Pocket Driver is an invaluable complement to larger and heavier cordless drill/drivers. The 10.8-volt Pocket Driver measures only 6 by 6.5-inches, nearly half the size of stick drivers and other ultra-compact drill/drivers. Under two pounds (with battery), the Pocket Driver is also 40-percent lighter and comfortably fits into a tool belt pouch or back pocket, unlike the competition.

The Pocket Driver can drive 100 3-inch screws per charge and drill holes up to 1/2-inch in diameter, more than enough to keep most professionals productive through the day. The variable speed trigger controls 0-400 RPM and over 80-inch/lbs. of torque. A 10+1 clutch system, similar to those of standard drill/drivers, offers 10 drive and one “Max” drill setting for better control. The tool’s Clic-Change™ bit holder makes 1/4-inch hex shank bits changes quick and easy. And a LED light enhances visibility in dim working conditions, while a soft-grip handle makes the tool more comfortable for all day use.

LITHEON 10.8-volt tools, such as the Pocket Driver, were not possible before lithium-ion technology. In addition to larger more powerful 36-volt tools, Bosch recognized the opportunity to extend the inherent benefits of the new battery technology to innovate the lower end of the voltage spectrum with a never before seen ultra-compact, lightweight and powerful design.
