HYCHIKA, does anyone know this brand? anyone use their tools?


Recommended Posts

hello guys, I am deciding which cordless screwdriver to buy. I know Dewalt and other brands are good, but...little expensive. I saw this HYCHIKA cordless screwdriver quite cheap, and with good review.

Did anyone ever use this brand? Please help me to decide whether I should save the 20 bucks?

How long and how often do you expect to use it? Will it be for home or frequently used in public places?

Not very often I think. Mostly do some DIY things just in the house. Any suggestions?

Well at the end of the day you’re only talking about $20-30 for a very infrequently used tool...it’s not a lot of money you’re throwing at something, and like anything else you just go in knowing that you get what you pay for. To be straight about it this is almost certainly going to be verging on throwaway quality, but hey maybe you’ll be asking so little out of it that it ends up being more than you need, with almost no money lost. Nothing wrong with that. That’s probably most of their buyers and they seem to review it positively over the one year that it’s been available. Which for all I know is as long as the company has existed.
 

I’m not much a fan of buying these “here today, gone tomorrow” brands even if only out of principle though. Dewalt is a spendy alternative but there are other established options at more intermediate prices and a small price premium can still get you into brands that are still very affordable but have been around for years with very good track records who won’t be going out the door any time soon.

 

Dremel, for example:

Yeesh, what a needlessly long link.

 

But Dremel’s been around for decades. It will be built more solidly and should be less likely to have reliability issues. I would see that as an option that makes sense if you want more long-term peace of mind for an established brand at a small price premium.
 

Another popular one could be Ryobi:

Another brand that’s been around for decades. Tool snobs will still talk down on them but for DIY utility they’re fine. They’re readily available and aren’t the kind of company that may up and vanish two months after you buy it.

I've heard about it but have never used. The rewievs are guite good, most of people are happy with it. If you are not going to use it for work or everyday, don't see any reason for not buying it. It doesn't seem to be bad or uncomfortable in use to me. Lets wait for a rewiev from someone who own it, and then decide.
