B&Q are selling a small battery powered screw driver for 8.50 also has a led light for screwing in the dark,maybe coffin builders i dont know :)
if u get the chance buy one,its got a good torque and battery lasts a good time.

had to move a sofa today,took six doors off and rehung them with this tool on one charge.

Sounds similar to the small unbranded mini electric drill/screwdriver I bought from Tesco about 4 years ago for 6. That has a light on it too. It's an amazing piece of kit. Great torque... I have completely abused it for 3 years and practically built the whole van with it! The only thing that stopped working was the 5V charger which I replaced with a generic one from Maplins.

If this one is the same model, I am totally getting a new one!

It's slightly different but very similar. I think I'll definitely get one for that price, I'd be lost if my other one packed up! This is 4.8v as well, and I think my one is 3.6v so it gives that bit more power. I use them for drilling wood and sheet metal too. They are quite efficient on thinnish metal even at low speed, especially if you help them out with a centre punch. With a countersink bit, pilot drill, and screwdriver bit all on hex change I can build things in no time.
