I’m all the time searching for higher instruments for constructing drones, this time I believe I discovered a greater electrical screwdriver – the ES126 from Sequre. Is it higher than Wowstick, YES! In truth it’s 7 instances extra highly effective!
It comes with the next equipment:
- Various screwdriver bits in a case, and a handbook deal with
- Instruction Manual
People used to chortle at me once I inform them how a lot I like electrical screwdrivers.
I’d like to see their faces once they need to do a bunch of 30mm screws like this on a regular basis. Not so humorous now huh? 😀
In conditions like this, electrical screwdrivers are true lifesaver!
Let’s reduce to the chase, the ES1260 is less complicated to make use of than my as soon as beloved Wowstick (with the lever adapter mod). It’s quicker and is WAY MORE POWERFUL. I’ll present you the outcomes from my testing shortly.
BUT! It’s additionally much more dear than the Wowstick.
So… Is the ES126 higher? Well, the Wowstick stays to be one of many least expensive electrical screwdrivers you will get that’s really dependable (mine is 3 years outdated nonetheless going robust).
If you could have the finances, I’d undoubtedly suggest the ES126, it’s far more versatile and extra appropriate for constructing RC fashions than the Wowstick.
The Wowstick is extra appropriate for smaller issues like repairing smartphones, generally it simply doesn’t have sufficient torque for greater screws like M3, which is usually a little irritating 🙂
The ES126 from Sequre has a shiny steel end, it feels very stable in hand and significantly heavier than the Wowstick:
- ES126 weight: 125g
- Wowstick weight: 56g
It has a really related look to the ES120/ES121 that I used earlier than, even dimensions are virtually an identical. However I requested Sequre and so they instructed me they don’t have any relation to the opposite firm.
The manner it really works can also be just like the ES120, you press the button, rotate your wrist (simply barely) and the screwdriver will spin in that route utilizing movement sensing. It’s tremendous intuitive and straightforward to make use of.
There are two buttons, they’re primarily the identical, however the prime button activates the LED on the tip for working in darkish areas, which is helpful. The solely factor that annoys me is how far the buttons are from the grip, it may be awkward to make use of generally. But I mounted that with a mod which I’ll present you shortly.
There’s additionally a display, which I don’t have a look at in any respect besides checking battery stage. Well you may regulate torque stage with it too, however I simply depart it at max. There are 6 choices: Auto, P, 1 (most), 2, 3, 4 (minimal).
The ES126 makes use of M4 screwdriver bits, which is a quite common measurement and you will get replacements simply. It’s cool that it comes with 24 screwdriver bits of all kinds in a really good case.
The bits are held securely contained in the case by magnets, in order that they don’t fall out simply. However they missed a 2.5mm hex bit which can also be helpful for constructing drones.
The Sequre ES126 has a built-in battery and it may be recharged by way of the USB-C connector. Battery life is implausible, I constructed two quads prior to now week, and I’m nonetheless at round 60%-70% from a full cost 🙂
People use cash to purchase stuff, I take advantage of cash to check stuff 🙂
So it is a new testing rig for electrical screwdrivers I got here up with. By lifting weight, I can take a look at the pace (RPM), in addition to the torque of those screwdrivers.
Although I’m somewhat shocked by the end result, it really confirms my expertise with these two screwdrivers. The ES126 has 46% greater RPM (rotation per minute, at near zero load), and it’s 7 instances extra highly effective !
|RPM (very mild load)||210||143|
|Max Lift Power||850g||120g|
Bloopers: once I was testing the ES126, I ran out of cash and had to make use of my hammer as weight 🙂 The energy of this little man places out really amazed me.
There are two mods I strongly suggest doing.
First mod is the finger management lever adapter by Painless360: https://www.thingiverse.com/factor:2805221
The buttons on the screwdriver are fairly removed from the grip, and so it’s not simple to press. With this lever adapter it makes it so significantly better.
It’s made for the ES120, however as I mentioned, the ES126 has virtually the identical measurement, so it really works very nicely 🙂
The different mod is the bit holder I made for 12 of your favorite bits to allow them to comply with your screwdrivers on a regular basis 🙂 https://www.thingiverse.com/factor:4825959
I’m utilizing Wowstick’s stand and it really works like a attraction, I’m certain you can also make one together with your 3D printer too.
