Great for "inside work" ! Strong when ne
This is a great tool for inside, close work like working on already finished furniture or window hardware. It's strong enough to drive ANY screws, inside or out, yet small enough to fit in your pocket. Great for use "up a ladder". Don't expect the world of its size but its a real tool. the light is a wonderful addition and a real asset for us with aging eyes to find screw slots in small dark places. The controls come easily to hand. The clutch settings regulate power without stripping screw slots. This is the first that I would give to someone who owns no power tools! Great tool for any and all tools boxes!!!!

Replaced XCellite Power Screw Driver
Light enough for use with small enclosures and parts where a larger battery drill is impractical.

Awesome screwdriver!
I use the Makita screwdriver at work as a technitian. I sometimes have to reach for screws in tight dark locations, and the light comes in very handy.
I love the way it stops when it reaches the set torque.

Makita 7.2V Cordless Lithium-Ion Screwdriver Kit
I had a 7.2 volt DeWalt cordless screw driver and loved it. I replaced it with the Makita 7.2 volt cordless screw driver because it was time to replace the Nicad batteries. It was slightly larger than the Makita 7.2 volt but very user friendly. Now, about the Makita; I very much dislike the two forward/reverse buttons on the right side. The screwdriver would be much more user friendly if it had a trigger. Due to the side forward button when a inserting a screw and it bottoms out the driver tends to twist in your hand. Problem is when you release the forward button with your thumb (if you are using it in your right hand) the driver wants to twist out of your hand. Eventually I will get used to it. One other minor dislike is the fact that when using it in its angled position (it adjusts to about 45 degrees) it does not lock in position. Other than that it is a fine cordless screwdriver. Good points are the lithium batteries, it is compact, and has adequate power. Lastly...I could have bought a new DeWalt 7.2 volt screw driver with two nicad batteries and charger for about $75.00. Nearly $100.00 less than the Makita.

BEST ANSWER: Low battery indicator functions through the built-in LED lights and blinks when the battery needs to be recharged
I need to use this on wire terminals. I will need 7 lb-in torque. What setting do I use? Is there a table of correlations in the manual?
