25 in 1 Screwdriver Wallet Kit Repair Tools review
25 in 1 Screwdriver Wallet Kit Repair Tools
A while ago we reviewed the Xiaomi Wiha 24 in 1 Precision Screwdriver Kit, a high-quality screwdriver set that came at a price and which does not fit in your pocket. We suggested the 25 in 1 Screwdriver Wallet Kit Repair Tools as an alternative if you wanted a cheaper screwdriver set that fits your pocket. At that point, I did not test this product yet. Until now, I ordered the product and put it to the test.
where to buy?
I bought the 25 in 1 Screwdriver Wallet Kit Repair Tools at Gearbest for € 4.42.
The specifications as stated on Gearbest:

The brandless 25 in 1 Screwdriver wallet has a low price, especially when compared to the Xiaomi Screwdriver Kit.
I don’t expect the quality to be as good as a Xiaomi product, but the price is high enough to expect a decent product that does as stated.
I received the 25 in 1 Screwdriver wallet in a packaging with multiple products. The product was in a plastic bag.
Does it fit your mailbox?
Yes, it does.

Build Quality & Design
The idea of the design is good, a screwdriver set for all of the smaller home repairs that fits your pocket is a good idea. However, that actual product is not that good.
The product I received had oxidation on the hanging storage mount. If that occurred during storage and shipment to my home, you can imagine what will happen when you take this set with you on the road, store it in your car or in another less well-conditioned place.
The quality of the wallet itself is acceptable, except for the popper button. This one comes off a bit too easy and you will probably lose this after carrying the wallet around.
The bits of the 25 in 1 Screwdriver Wallet Kit Repair Tools offer a wide variety to support a large part of the lighter DIY at home maintenance and repairs. The handle feels stable enough and you can tightly install the bits into it.
The mounting of the bits is done by unscrewing the head of the handle, installing the bit and screwing the bit back on. I found here that one of the Torx bits was bigger than the opening of the holder, so I could not mount it without using excessive force.
I´ve tested the featured magnetism of the screwdriver head but I did not find sufficient magnetic force to keep smaller screws from falling off.
Pro / cons
- A set you can use for smaller home maintenance and repairs.
- It is cheap.
- Not the set you want to rely when on the road.
- Quality is subpar.
The 25 in 1 Screwdriver Wallet Kit Repair Tools is a cheap product with an average quality but a less than average finish.
When both the quality and finish of this set was acceptable it would have been the perfect set for on the road. But the oxidation of the material indicates that it wants to stay inside.
So that leads to the dilemma: when you have no better tools available you would be so happy to have this set with you, but when you are at home you probably have better tools and when you bring the set with you it will be probably be rusted when you need it. So the 25 in 1 Screwdriver Wallet Kit is not a totally worthless screwdriver kit, but if you take it outside you need to expect a limited lifespan. I will continue my journey to find an affordable screwdriver set that you can take with you, and I suggest you do the same.
