The Skil iXO2 palm-sized cordless screwdriver has even more advanced features to help you get the job done right. Because it uses lithium-ion power, iXO2 stays charged for up to 18 months, so it’s always charged and ready to use for those screwdriving tasks in and around the house. Whether assembling furniture, installing blinds, or tightening drawer pulls, iXO2 has plenty of power but is lightweight and fits comfortably in your palm. The built-in work light makes it even easier to use in those hard-to-reach areas. iXO2 can even be stored right on the charger without memory effect, extending the life of the tool! This versatile tool is a must-have for any household and makes a great gift for anyone on your list.
Innovative Features and Benefits
The SKIL iXO2 comes equipped with a built-in work light to illuminate dimly lit areas like inside cabinets, above a false ceiling, or behind furniture. It also features an easy-to-read LED charge indicator located on the top of the tool that informs the user when it needs to be charged. Additionally, the 1/4-inch hex chuck is now magnetized, ensuring that bits stay in place.
SKIL also added functionality to the cradle charger. The charger now provides convenient built-in bit storage, as well as a fully removable bit set to make it a functional storage station as well. It can even be mounted to a wall for added convenience and flexibility. The SKIL SmartCharge System charger automatically manages the flow of power to the battery, providing temperature and overcharge protection, allowing users to store tools on the cradle as an added benefit. This feature has earned the ixo2 battery charger the Energy Star Compliance certification.
“As the manufacturer who introduced the first lithium ion screwdriver to the North American DIY market, we not only understand the technology but most importantly, understand the end user,” said Dean Peterson, product development and marketing director at SKIL Power Tools. “Some of the main hurdles for occasional tool users are the weight and bulkiness of the tool and the fact that cordless tools don’t have a charge when the user needs them. With the SKIL iXO, we created a non-intimidating, lightweight, easy-to-handle screwdriver that is always ready for the job, even after months of non-use. With SKIL iXO2, we increased functionality by adding a light for dark spaces, an on-tool fuel gauge, and even more convenient bit storage. It is all part of SKIL’S on-going commitment to help do-it-yourselfers achieve home project success.”
The SKIL iXO2 still boasts user-friendly design features from the first generation. The forward/reverse indicator clearly shows users the direction the bit is spinning, and the ergonomic soft-grip handle offers increased comfort.
