BLACK+DECKER™ Introduces New Screwdriver

BLACK+DECKER™ announces the LIGHTDRIVER™, a new 4V MAX* Lithium Ion screwdriver for DIY projects big and small. The screwdriver features an integrated LED flashlight to help illuminate dark project areas such as cabinets and drawers.

The LIGHTDRIVER™ has a three-position pivoting design to help DIYers access hard-to-reach areas on furniture, blinds, shelving, cabinets, and more. Users can adjust the tool’s angle to three positions. This allows the tool to reach tricky areas that a standard electric screwdriver cannot.

The LIGHTDRIVER™ is powered by a Lithium Ion battery and holds a charge up to 18 months so the tool is ready for last minute projects. Homeowners will find this new screwdriver convenient for assembly-required furniture, decorating and prepping the home for guests.

The affordable new LIGHTDRIVER™ electric screwdriver will be available summer 2017 at retailers nationwide. The LIGHTDRIVER™ will be sold for $19.99 MSRP and is backed by a two year limited warranty and 30 day money-back guarantee.

*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 4 volts. Nominal voltage is 3.6. 


Since 1910, BLACK+DECKER has been setting the standard for innovation and design of power tools, outdoor yard care equipment, and home cleaning products. The inventor of the first portable electric drill with pistol grip and trigger switch, BLACK+DECKER has evolved from a small machine shop in Baltimore, Maryland to a global manufacturing powerhouse with a broad line of quality products used in and around the home. When home owners have work to get done, they trust that BLACK+DECKER’s products will do the job efficiently and reliably.
