If the OP doesn't have a charger or battery to share with other Milwaukee tools, the price tag is $179 list price. Tool only, $99. I'd consider that a great novelty/collectible/enthusiast item for anyone not using it on a daily or hourly basis.I am going to recommend something that is absolutely not cheap. This is the Milwaukee 4V screwdriver:
That is not to say I don’t like my Bosch tool, because I do. But the range of options and the power of the high end Milwaukee stuff is really impressive.
Anyway, most people won‘t want to spend this sort of money, but for tools I look for the best that I can afford. This is expensive but not unattainable.
I remember these drivers well. I was working at the Boston Museum of Science when they were first for sale and our exhibits department really loved them. They were the only battery powered tool they used.Thanks, gentlemen.
My Milwaukee not 4V has worked for $25 since 1996 and is now tired. A great, great run ! Price is not decisive, could spend the $100+ for a new one.
Transplanted li-ion cells to spare battery cases but other things are failing from age and wear :

I like how he uses manual screwdrivers to repair the electric screwdriver.I remember these drivers well. I was working at the Boston Museum of Science when they were first for sale and our exhibits department really loved them. They were the only battery powered tool they used.
I had a small Makita cordless (which I still own, along with two versions of the Makita larger drill, all originally NiCd) and loved it. I used it for so many things and it was a novelty at the time.
If you haven't seen this guy's YOuTube channel, you need to. This is one of many Makita drill restorations. In one, he converted a 12V model using a battery case that was the same form factor as the original battery. I never new those existed. He does amazing work on all sorts of power tools. He's in Japan, and he seems to find a lot of vintage tools to work on.
