The combination of metal + ABS material and the surface treatment of matte metal baking paint + matte TPU soft rubber injection molding make the grip feel very comfortable during daily use. At the same time, its fine workmanship can also effectively achieve anti-fouling and scratch resistance.

This electric drill uses a 12V brushless motor. Compared with the traditional brushed motor, the brushless motor has a longer service life and a higher rotation speed, and benefits. Because it has a maximum torque of 30N·m and a maximum speed of 1400rpm, it is very easy to screw screws or drill holes in daily life. The 12V brushless electric drill adopts an integrated design and a built-in 2000mAh large-capacity battery. On the basis of ensure that the electric drill has a very powerful work efficiency, a common Type -C data cable can start charging, very convenient.

On the body of the HOTO 12V brushless electric drill, there is an intelligent high-definition LED display, which can be used to display the current power, gear position, pulse mode, and forward/reverse prompts of the device.

There are also three physical buttons around the screen display, which are the gear adjustment buttons on the left and right sides, and the pulse mode switches below. The start button of the HOTO 12V brushless electric drill adopts the most common trigger design, the button damping is very comfortable, the force feedback is moderate, and the engineer’s tuning is still very good.

On the top of the 12V brushless electric drill, we see a circular toggle switch, which allows the electric drill to switch between drilling and screwing. From the function, we can basically know that this switch is for Better control of drill output to ensure efficient torque performance.

The design of the drill chuck has a large span, and I believe it can be compatible with more drill bits and bits. The outside of the drill chuck has a non-slip texture design and the friction between the fingers is increased, and the rotation is more convenient and labor-saving. The actual loading and unloading of the drill bit/bit are also very easy to use, and the direction indication is clear, even a novice can easily complete the operation.

If the appearance design of the HOTO 12V brushless electric drill is in line with the aesthetics of young users, then in terms of function and interaction, the HOTO 12V brushless electric drill is more suitable for the usage habits of young users. The biggest difference from our common traditional electric drill, the HOTO 12V brushless electric drill also innovatively added a screen, we can understand the working status of the electric drill through this screen, and know the torque output of the motor.

Bits & Drills Bits Set

In addition, there are two types of drill bits that come with the HOTO 12V brushless electric drill this time. One is a drill bit for drilling metal hard objects, and the other is a drill bit for drilling wood. There are 4 drill bits for each of the two types, and their sizes are different. First, when we need to drill holes, we can compare the model size and choose the appropriate drill bit.

There are also 10 commonly used S2 steel Screw bits that come with this Toolset, Basically, it can be adapted to the screw types on household appliances or furniture, it can be seen that this bit is specially designed for HOTO 12V brushless electric drill. Yes, because although the manual screwdrivers of HOTO and the attached bits in the toolbox are of the same type, their length is shorter.

Multipurpose Screwdriver

The Multipurpose Screwdriver adopts a magnetic bit holder, with 10 commonly used S2 alloy steel bits and the bit of the screwdriver is magnetic, so you don’t have to be afraid of losing some small screws. The handle is made of PP+TPE material, which is heavy and non-slip. The anti-roll cutting surface design makes it feel good, easy to hold, and easy to exert force. The screwdriver can be said to be one of the most commonly used tools. This screwdriver has an excellent grip and is very comfortable to screw. I would like to share two points of experience. One is that the screwdriver uses a magnetic bit holder, which is easy to install and not slippery; the other is that the screwdriver handle is made of plastic material, which is comfortable to hold, and the cutting surface is designed to be easy to use without slipping.

Adjustable Wrench

The design of the adjustable wrench is also very interesting. The head of the wrench is engraved with a scale, with millimeter accuracy at the opening, which means that it can achieve accurate size measurement of objects within the range of 25 mm, which undoubtedly meets the routine of a daily wrench In addition to the function, it also has the function of a vernier caliper, such as the daily measurement of the size of screws and nuts, so there is no need to use a ruler to compare continuously. The length of the wrench is 200mm, which is very labor-saving when turning large screws.

Claw Hammer & Rubber Hammer

Now take a look at the design of its claw hammer. The total length is 240mm, and the hammer head is made of metal, which is strong and impact-resistant. The hammerhead is embedded in the process, and it is not easy to fall off. The hammer handle is made of glass fiber + PP + TPE material, which feels comfortable, fashionable, and non-slip.

The claws on the top can also pry up nails, and a rubber hammer head is also attached for use in special environments. Almost the entire handle of the claw hammer is covered with a layer of non-slip rubber, which can provide a better grip during actual use.

In addition to the conventional hammering and prying functions, the magnetic suction recess on the top groove design is very user-friendly. For the grooves of different sizes of long and short nails, the nails can be automatically absorbed and fixed, so that there is no need to hold the nails with hands when hammering for the first time, which can greatly reduce the risk of hand injuries risk.

The claw hammer is equipped with a rubber hammer head, which will not damage the material when striking, such as hitting a wooden board, without leaving hammer marks on the wooden board and damaging the surface.

Needle-nose pliers are also a common tool in every home. These needlenose pliers of HOTO are different from the general ones, with an extra spring. The needle-nose pliers adopt a more labor-saving spring design and are also designed with multiple teeth positions with different functions. Stripping, cutting, winding, flattening and other operations can be accurately realized. When I was a maintenance worker before, I found that the scope of use of needle-nose pliers is quite special. Needle-nose pliers are needed to replace the places where wire pliers cannot get in. However, the force is much weaker than that of wire pliers, after all, its head is pointed. The length of the needle-nose pliers in the set is 169mm, and the opening distance is large and convenient to use.

Self-Lock Measure Tape

The design of this tape measure is quite special, it adopts the design of automatic locking and one-button self-retraction, which automatically locks when stretched out, and automatically retracts when the button is pressed. The longest tape measure is 3m, and the overall expansion and contraction are smooth. I think the most intimate is the automatic lock. Press and hold the tape measure lock to recover it with one button. The 3-meter-long tape measure can be stored in a few seconds! any position Release the lock of the tape measure to lock the tape measure! which is convenient and safe when measuring.
