The Speedhex FlipOut Screwdriver is for anyone who has ever tried to work in tight spaces while cursing their old fashioned screwdriver. After using this FlipOut Screwdriver you’ll wonder why someone didn’t design such a compact and versatile tool years ago. This tool has only been on the market for a short period of time so don’t blame yourself if you haven’t heard of it before.
It’s made by a company called Pell Industrial who manufacturers a limited range of products including grease guns, flashlights, chisels and more. Either way, they’ve hit a home run with this FlipOut Screwdriver —they call it a Power Driver.
The Speedhex FlipOut is fully rechargeable and it’s specifically designed to work in those difficult to reach places. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been frustrated by using a screwdriver in very narrow areas. I’m sure that you’ve encountered the same limitations when using a rigid screwdriver, and as you know, it’s not fun when you have to dig around your garage for another tool or make a trip to your local hardware store to buy a smaller screwdriver. Yup, I’ve done that many times in my life.
Whether you’re someone who is constantly working on DIY projects or a homeowner who has the occasional need to assemble a piece of furniture or fix an existing problem around the home, this FlipOut screwdriver will become your best friend.
The SpeedHex FlipOut Screwdriver is Packed with Features & Accessories
It has 380 different positions that you can adjust as well as 360 degrees of orbital rotation. Basically, this FlipOut screwdriver can be positioned anyway you want it. And, if that’s not enough, it has an LED work light, an 8-volt fast charge lithium-ion battery and a variable speed trigger button. The SpeedHex FlipOut Power Driver packs a lot of features into a very small package.
You get everything you see in the photo below — quick charger, nylon case, 2 inch magnetic bit holder, and 18x 1″ driver bits.

No tool is perfect and the SpeedHex Flip Out is no different. For starters, this tool is designed for low torque projects. Don’t expect this tool to replace your full-size drill. And no, the SpeedHex FlipOut isn’t sufficient for renovating your kitchen either, but for small projects around the home and garden, it’s excellent.
Like any good tool, it should feel solid in your hands — and this FlipOut screwdriver does.
It’s well-made and when you set it to your desired position it stays locked where you want it. Everything is tight and snug. For whatever reason, the bit tip does not have a strong magnet, which makes it a little more challenging to keep your driver bits on when working.
Also, the designers should have positioned the ‘forward’ and ‘reverse’ buttons closer to the the end of this tool because currently, it’s situated where your hands grip and you can accidentally hit one of the buttons as you apply pressure on the handle.
This tool operates at 170 rpm and can provide 65 in-lbs of torque.
Overall, a very practical tool that simplifies your small DIY projects around the home.
