Even though our electronic devices are becoming more and more difficult to repair nowadays because of the miniaturization and lack of parts that we will say of the basic necessities to repair an electronic device (such as a resistance or a capacitor), it's always very useful to have a screwdriver like the Xiaomi Wowstick 1F on hand to be able to open the device to see what's wrong, because sometimes it's a stupid thing like a cable that came off or a screw!
The problem is that the screwdriver alone is not always enough, it is not uncommon to have 2 different types of screws and there you already need 2 screwdrivers. or a screwdriver with 2 or more bits is better.
And if like me you often happen to screw and/or unscrew, but I reassure you, my electronic devices do not fall too often broken, but I sometimes open out of curiosity, to modify, to repair electronic devices of others, etc… And in the long run it is tiring between screw/unscrew, change of tips, hold such screws goes to such place, etc… That I decide to invest in the cordless electric screwdriver Xiaomi Wowstick 1f Plus.
Why the Xiaomi Wowstick 1f +?
I chose the Xiaomi Wowstick 1f + for various reasons:
- Xiaomi being a brand that I know via the bracelet connected MiBand and the smartphone REDMI Note 5 and having for the moment not yet been disappointed, it was worth taking the risk
- This is an electric screwdriver, which greatly facilitate the task of screwing/unscrewing!
- Multitude of different tips: 56!
- Interesting accessories: Magnetic mini-tray, magnetist/degausser, etc…
- Charging via USB
- Not imposing, looks like a pen
- Integrated Leds

Even if it does not concern the product itself, the packaging is one of the first criteria that strikes: both simple, but well-arranged (no empty space) and both "useful" in the sense where it is marked on every small box which tool is inside. This means that if you don't need all the tools right now and you prefer to keep some tools in their packaging for later, no problem, when you need them, no need to open all the boxes, just read and to open the right little wrapper! It's simple!
In terms of accessories, you have a slew of accessories, and this, at a low price: so you have the screwdriver itself, a base to place the screwdriver standing, a kind of box with glasses but for the screwdriver – 1 tube of tips (you have 3 different pipe tubes of tips) , a magnetizer/tip demagnetizer, a mini suction cup (used to hold screens), a piece of plastic intended to disglide, a magnetized support and even… Screws… I do not see too much why they have incorporated screws, but why not, this can troubleshoot under certain conditions.
About these accessories, the tip tubes are certainly original and compact, but not to use, it is not ideal … The classic tips placed next to each other are much more practical than tips placed in a tube, not only they more accessible, but also, we see immediately what tips it is. The change of tips is also done quickly, whereas in a tube, it is necessary to look, to be delicate…
Another concern is the kind of eyeglass box for the screwdriver and a tube of nozzles: The 2 faces are held by 4 mini magnets. These 4 mini magnets are low power, so if the box falls on the floor, the box opens. In addition, inside, the screwdriver is about 2mm shorter than its location, which is not the case of the tube of nozzles, and therefore if the box opens, your screwdriver will be just the trunk…
The Xiaomi Wowstick 1F screwdriver
The screwdriver itself does not have any fault, except the large clamping, it will have enough force to (DE) screw your screw. and damage your screw if you have chosen the wrong bit or if you force it too.
Note that the screwdriver engine locks at a standstill, which means that it can very well be used as a normal screwdriver to tighten or loosen the screw if it is too tight or not tight enough, and then continue with the engine!
The grip is nice although I think a little relief kind non-slip would have been possibly a little extra.
The battery, rechargeable by MicroUSB (flat MicroUSB cable supplied), has a fairly good autonomy.
An excellent screwdriver whose grip is simple and effective and which will make life easier if you often use a screwdriver, whether to repair a computer, a smartphone or other device. The many accessories accompanying this Xiaomi screwdriver, except for a few defects here and there, will also be very useful!
You can find this excellent electric screwdriver at Fasttech for less than 35 euros!
