Simian 10 in 1 Autoloading Ratchet Screwdriver Review

Whenever I need to replace the batteries on my daughters' toys, I would have to go through hubby's tools, which is sometimes a hassle for me, because there's a lot. I have to manually change the bits (I researched what it's called! :)) to see which one would be the best size to use. When I received the Simian 10 in 1 Autoloading Ratchet Screwdriver, I was excited to try it because it seems easy to use.

Here is a quick product description from the company:

Whether it's construction, home improvement, or a personal project, the Simian Autoloading Ratchet screwdriver provides you with a one-stop solution tool to make your work faster and more efficient than ever. With 3-way ratchet functionality, a quick-changing bit mechanism and 10 standard bits included, this is a must-have addition to your toolbox.
10 individual bits in one screwdriver
The Simian autoloading ratchet screwdriver features 10 separate bits, so you'll never be left wanting when you're in the middle of a project again. Bits are standard 1/4'', included are: Phillips #1/#2/#3, Slotted 4mm/6mm, Star T15/T20, and Square 1/2.
Magnetic bit holder
The tip of this autoloading screwdriver is outfitted with a magnetic system to hold your bit of choice in place while you work. Don't worry about fiddling around with bits, simply autoload the bit you want and work with confidence knowing that it will be firmly held in place.
3-Way Ratchet Functionality
Switch this ratchet screwdriver to forward, reverse, or locked mode depending on your needs, and easily screw in tight spaces. If you need a steady hand, you can screw and unscrew without having to rotate the handle 360 degrees.
Easily change bits in 3 Steps
To exchange a bit, first pull back the Simian handle, then move the index arrow to the desired bit in the revolving chamber. Finally, push the handle forward to lock the bit in place - it's that easy to change bits on-the-go.

The Simian 10 in 1 Autoloading Ratchet Screwdriver has 9 different bits and 1 metal extender (I'm not sure if that's the correct term) which can be used to add length to the bits.
This autoloading screwdriver includes the following standard 1/4" bits:

- Phillips #1, #2 and #3
- Slotted 4mm and 6mm
- Star T15 and T20
- Square 1 and 2
5 of the bits are already loaded into the revolving chamber which are the Philipps #1, #2 and #3 and the Slotted 4 mm and 6 mm. 4 of the bits is located inside the handle which can be manually removed and placed on the magnetic bit holder.

What's so cool about this, at least for me, is that the revolving chamber automatically loads and changes the 5 bits. I just have to pull the handle, revolve the barrel to the bit size I want and then push it back in.
There's also a metal extender located on the other side of the handle.

The Simian 10 in 1 Autoloading Ratchet Screwdriver is really helpful for me because I don't have to dig through hubby's tools. I can easily switch the bits in this screwdriver and although I find this a bit heavy but looks durable and well made.

The handle has a rubber casing which makes it easy for me to hold the screwdriver. The ratchet also has a 3-way functionality which can be switched to forward, reverse or stop.

This is a cool and nice autoloading ratchet screwdriver which looks heavy duty and works as it should.
