The new FLEX 24V Quick Eject Hex Impact Driver is a powerful and smart new tool you’re going to want to have in your tool kit. FLEX is stepping up the game with their 24V cordless line, and this new impact is definitely going to give other premium impacts a run for their money. If you’re interested in testing out the FLEX tool line, this is a great tool to start with. It has immense torque output and can match and even outperform many other competitors on the market.
Unrivaled Power with 3 Speed Modes
After testing out this impact, we can confirm that this tool has some serious power. The FX1371A-2B offers 2,500 in-lbs. of torque, which is really impressive for such a compact tool. FLEX uses sensor-free brushless motors for all of their 24V tools which deliver more power with less fatigue. They use an intelligent feedback loop to offer more control over the speed and torque of the tool. There are 3 speed modes that make it easy to transition from project to project. The first and second settings work well for fastening screws, and the third setting delivers max power for heavier applications.
In addition to the 3 speed modes, there are 2 self-tapping screw modes that recognize any torque changes while in use and stops the tool so you don’t over-tighten or strip the screws. The 3 different speed options and 2 tapping modes offer a lot of versatility with this impact.
Quick Charging Lithium-Ion Battery
The FLEX 24V batteries charge incredibly fast, achieving a full charge in under 30 minutes. If you get the kit option with the 2.5 Ah and 5.0 Ah batteries you can always have a replacement battery on deck so you are not stuck waiting for a dead battery to recharge. The 24V lithium-ion batteries are super long-lasting as well, you can read more about those here. The long battery life paired with up to 4,400 impacts/minute, you can get a lot done on a single charge.
Quick Eject Collet
The “quick eject” feature on this impact is a game changer for making bit changes on the job. There is an eject button right above the trigger that ejects the bit easily with out having to let go of the tool. You can keep a normal grip on it while swapping bits so you can easily get right back to work. When you press the button it pushes the collet forward to it’s open position so the bit can be easily replaced. It doesn’t launch the bit out either, so you have complete control over the tool and the bits. This feature is super helpful if you’re working at heights like on a ladder because you don’t have to set the tool down or fumble around trying to replace the bit heads.
If we had to describe this tool in two word they would be power and efficiency. From the lightning fast charger to the quick-eject collet, you are able to get more work done in less time. The impressive torque output drives fasteners much faster than other impacts we’ve tried, which is a huge advantage when working on big projects. FLEX definitely hit the nail on the head with this impact– or should we say drove the screw into the wall? Whatever.
