From the official promo materials, we can see that the shape of the Mijia hand-in-one electric screwdriver is different from common manual or electric screwdrivers. Particularly, the handle part is longer and thicker. The Mijia hand-held electric screwdriver has a net weight of 185 grams, uses S2 alloy steel bit, and has a 50mm long bit. Also, it adopts integrated screwless design, with engineering plastic and UV paint technology. According to reports, this electric screwdriver can hit more than 180 screws when fully charged.
As a manual and electric screwdriver, its electric mode is used for ‘quick assembly’, while manual mode is used for ‘careful tightening’.

In electric mode operation, the Mijia hand-held electric screwdriver has two keys. The upper key ‘R’ is used to screw in, and the lower key ‘L’ is used to screw out.
As an electric screwdriver, this product is powered by a rechargeable battery of 1500mAh capacity. The Mijia hand-held electric screwdriver uses a cut handle, which supports overcurrent, overvoltage, overtemperature, and short-circuit protection during charging. When the battery level is less than 20%, pressing the button indicator will flash for 5 seconds.
Mijia’s self-contained electric screwdriver is still produced by Zhuhai Xiaohou Technology. It’s a Xiaomi ecological chain enterprise that has previously created Mijia electric screwdrivers and other products. More specific product information is yet to be officially announced.
