Amazon.com: Black & Decker LI4000 3.6-Volt Lithium-Ion SmartDriver with Exclusive Magnetic Screw Holder

Of course, Amazon is out of stock.  So you probably can’t get one in time for Christmas.  But this little gadget is pretty cool.  

The SmartDriver from Black and Decker has a pretty neat Screw Holder that extends from the front of the driver.  Now, I know most of you will say that a magnetic bit will accomplish the same thing, and you’re right, but sometimes magnetic bits don’t hold very well.  In this case, the screw holder has more contact area with the screw than a magnetic bit would have, so I think it would hold a little better.  

Add this to the fact that the tool’s battery is Lithium-Ion and you’ve got my vote for Best Christmas present.  Though, like I said before, Amazon’s out of stock (and I’m sure other retailers are as well), so it might be Best Father’s day present.  Either way, this one’s on my WANT list!
