Black & Decker expands the Autoselect Family

As the UK’s leading DIY expert Black & Decker® continues in its mission to demystify DIY and provide practical solutions for a new generation of home improvers. Their latest offering, the 3.6V Autoselect® Screwdriver, is an extension to the Autoselect® family, a collection of power tools that take the guess work and uncertainty out of a host of jobs, reducing the need for in-depth knowledge of torque, gears and speed!

Each tool in the Autoselect® family, which includes drills, jigsaws and now a screwdriver, are pre-set by experts, making them easier and faster to use. Simply turn the dial to select the most appropriate application and they automatically adjust to the optimal power and speed, ensuring the less experienced or not so confident achieve a perfect finish every time.

The new Autoselect® Screwdriver boasts a lithium ion battery which not only makes it lightweight and easy to handle, it also ensures that the tool stays charged and ready to use for up to 18 months. As with the other tools in this range, it is controlled by a series of task led settings displayed on an easy to read picture dial. Another key feature is the magnetic retractable screw holder. This holds the screw in place so it can be used with just one hand. This tool is ideal for taking the hassle out of everything from flat packed furniture to a range of quick fix household DIY jobs.

Black & Decker® created the Autoselect® family following extensive customer research which found that the new generation of home improvers simply don’t have the ‘know how’ to get the best performance from power tools which is why they resort to ‘getting someone in’. DIY needn’t be a daunting or difficult task, as the Autoselect® technology simplifies the process enabling everyone to make changes to their home, something which is becoming increasingly popular as consumers opt to improve – not move!
