DEWALT DCF680N2 8V Max Gyroscopic Cordless Screwdriver Review

DEWALT DCF680N2 8V is the first class battery-powered screwdriver. To me, I think we can give them that. I have the features to support my claim. I do not say that everything is good but rather stick to what is important. The features include a battery powered screwdriver, the 15-position clutch, variable speed and LED light ring that sets the Dewalt DCF680N2 8V cordless screwdriver well ahead of the pack of other comparative items.

The ergonomic variable handle position and one-handed 1″ bit-compatible chuck. The screwdriver has a conduit ream that allows you to ream with a few sized conduits and fix fittings in a fraction of the time it would bring with others screwdrivers. This exceptional gyroscopic screwdriver allows for fast bit changes and holds 1 inch bit tips to make the majority of your projects fast and easier to finish.

These are characteristics that make this Gyroscopic Screwdriver 2 Battery Kit the best. The features also explain why you should buy it, and the reason it stand out when compared to others.

1. Adjustable 2-position Handle with a comfortable grip

The screwdriver is made with a pivoting handle that lets for pistol-grip and in-line orientations. It does not turn, it swivels, but the result is the same. The handle position can be opened from the two sides of the tool, but the pivot mechanism only works in one direction. This does not seem to detract from anything.

2. 8V MAX battery pack

The cordless screwdriver is mainly designed with machine screws and lighter duty and repetitive installation tasks as a top priority. It is better suited for tasks that one could commonly use a manual screwdriver for. The 8V battery on the DCF680N2 8V is slim with two of the 14650 cells that give excellent run-time and a high vitality thickness.

The charger is also compact, but we appreciated the removable battery over an in-built model cap is, of course, a more first – class feature that will be appreciated by anyone who is ever needed to swap out a pack but has been forced to sit tight for the tool to recharge. The size difference between the 8V Max ion lithium battery pack and a common 8V Max battery pack is calculable. Dewalt 8V Max batteries are arranged in an unexpected way, which is the reason this seemed to be a better comparison.

3. A speed control with 15 clutch position settings

DEWALT DCF680N2 8V Max Gyroscopic Screwdriver 2 Battery KitThe DCF680N2 8V has variable speed control and additionally a 15-position clutch. That is incredibly important as anyone who has beat down a bunch of switch or outlet plates can attest to. With this DeWalt Gyroscopic Screwdriver, you will set the clutch and forget it drive that screw until it stops and your plate will stay in place. Obviously, the gyroscopic feature is genuinely one of a kind, and it makes it easy to complete your work.

4. Motion activation variable speed and reversing control

The speed variation switch is located only below the trigger and activation switch. This maintains a strategic distance from unintentional activation when the driver is transported in a tool sack, tool box, or pouch by other tools that might push on the activation switch.

5. Battery charge gage

DEWALT DCF680N2 8V Max Gyroscopic Screwdriver 2 Battery KitOne other feature I loved on this new 8V screwdriver is the battery charge gauge positioned on the top, nearly behind the one-handed 1/4″ hex hurl. This three-LED meter will ensure that you do not leave for the day, thinking that your 8V Max battery is completely charged when it is not.


  1. It is compact and well-designed tool
  2. It is lightweight, and it can be almost be carried in a pocket
  3. It offers comprehensive speed control knob which can be used manually for definite clasp tightening


  • It takes a little longer getting used on the most proficient method to utilize it mostly in adjusting the handle.
  • It has low peak torque that limits use to light duty work.


Dewalt DCF680N2 8V screwdriver is well designed and well made. However, it will not be the correct decision for all clients. It looks the part, but the driver is not worked for medium-to-substantial duty driving tasks. Its peak torque rating is significantly not exactly even nearly 8V screwdrivers.

This driver is about enhanced control for lighter duty tasks, not power. With this driver, you need to align the tool, squeeze the activation trigger, curve the tool, and move and adjust your arm to make up for how the tool moves sideways as you bend it. This is not blamed of the item’s design but its size and geometry.

I can recommend the 8V gyro-controlled driver for installers looking for a cordless screwdriver with more noteworthy low-torque and speed control. The 8V driver is insightfully designed. My only concern is that it some long time to know how to use it than anticipated. Like any other new tools, you need a little practice to figure out how to use it well.
