Even if our electronic devices are increasingly difficult to repair nowadays because of the miniaturization and lack of parts that we will say of the first necessity to repair an electronic device (as for example a resistance or a Capacitor), it is always very useful to have a screwdriver on hand to be able to open the device in order to see what is wrong, because sometimes it is a stupid thing like a cable that has loosened or a screw! The worry is that the screwdriver alone is not always enough, it is not unusual 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!

- 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. Which means that if you don't need all the tools in the immediate future and you prefer to keep some tools in their packaging for later, no problem, when you need it, no need to open all the boxes, it will suffice to read and To open the good little package! It's simple! In terms of accessories, you have a slew of them, and this, at low price: so you have the screwdriver in itself, a base to place the screwdriver upright, a kind of eyeglass box but for the screwdriver + 1 tube of bits (you have 3 different tubes of tips) , a magnetist/degausser of bits, a mini suction cup (used to hold the screens), a piece of plastic designed to Unclip, a support magnetized 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 tubes of tips are original and compact, but ideal for the use… 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 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 motor locks at the stop, which means it can be used very well as a normal screwdriver to tighten or loosen the screw if it is too or not tight enough, and then continue with the motor! The grip is nice though I think a bit of non-skid relief would have possibly been a little more. 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 that accompany this Xiaomi screwdriver, except for a few faults here and there, will also be very useful! You can find this excellent electric screwdriver at Fasttech for less than 35 euros!
