9072 Black and Decker Cordless Screwdriver - My wife's 1st tool!

Feb 24, 2001
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Easy to use and convenient

Cons:Not a lot of power for larger jobs

The Bottom Line: If all that is wanted is a screwdriver for small jobs, but I would probably recommend a product with a bit more power for a wider range of uses.


One evening, upon coming home from work, my wife informed me she bought me a gift. The gift she purchased was the 9072 Black and Decker Cordless Screwdriver. She was in the midst of one of her household decorating projects and decided this product would make the job a bit easier.

The 9072 Black and Decker Cordless Screwdriver turns out to be a good tool for projects such as hanging shelves, small "fix-it" projects and the like. This tool has served it's purpose for my wife, as she now is able to finish some projects she would have been otherwise unable to finish without my help. The downside of this tool is that it is not powerful enough to use on many jobs. For jobs which involve screwing into hardwoods and metals, countersinking screws, etc... this tool will fall short of your needs.

Power and Charging

The 9072 Black and Decker Cordless Screwdriver is powered by a 2.4V motor and is rated at 150 RPM. These figures indicate this screwdriver is not the most powerful available. We have found the battery does not stay charged for an extended length of time. The lack of power and the shortened charge time do limit the possible uses for this tool. It does come with it's own battery charger which is simple to use. It is not necessary to break down the unit to charge, simply place it on it's charging stand so it is always ready for it's next use.

Advantages

This model screwdriver is very lightweight and narrow, allowing it to be used in a smaller confines. This is the one reason I have found to use this tool. In most cases it is just as simple to pick up a hand-held screwdriver to complete a job. On occasions where space is an issue, this tool will help.

The 9072 Black and Decker Cordless Screwdriver also has both a forward and reverse gear, this allows for both placing or removing screws. In addition, a double ended bit is included for both Phillips or regular type screws.

Final Thoughts

I would probably have returned my "gift" for a larger size, but it does serve it's purpose for my wife. To this date, the tool has proved to be both reliable and durable, however if you are in the market for a cordless screwdriver I would still suggest a more powerful unit.
