Prime Day drill deal: Meterk impact driver for $30 (Update: Expired)

It's something every household needs, and it's never been priced this low.


The current $30 price is great for a reasonably powerful, cordless impact driver.


I don't care whether you live in a mansion, a ranch, an apartment or a converted van; you need a drill. And many a handyman will extol the virtues of an impact driver, which looks and operates like a drill but tends to be lighter and more compact -- while delivering more torque. Translation: better for assembling IKEA furniture.

Sound good? Here's a Prime Day deal you shouldn't miss: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon seller Gervus has the Meterk 20-volt impact driver for $30. That's 50% off the regular price -- which, in fact, has been as high as $90. As with most of these deals, you must be an Amazon Prime subscriber to get the discount.

I've tested a few Meterk tools of late; they seem solid. I'll be the first to admit you don't want to cheap out on a drill, but this one appears to tick all the important boxes. It has a quick-release chuck, an LED to light up your drill path, a rechargeable battery (and charger) and a magnetic slot to hold your bit when not in use.

Obviously it's a little late for Father's Day gift shopping, but if you know someone who's just starting out living in their own place or you're tired of manually screwing together furniture, this is a cheap and easy option.
