This set contains 6 screwdrivers, 3 Phillips (#1, #0 and #00) and 3 flat (2.4mm, 1.8mm and 1.4mm). These sizes will open up pretty much any consumer electronics you come across. We picked this set to carry because it is better quality than most low cost sets. Instead of thin metal rods, these have contoured plastic handles with grippy sections to give you good control. The ends have a rounded plastic ‘bead’ (instead of a pointy metal hexagon) that will let you press down with your palm for better torque. They come in a handy carrying case.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

Ooh! Very nice! My current miniature screwdriver set is a cheap $2 set with no Phillips, and the usual thin metal rods… this set would be quite a nice upgrade!
You need to get some nice torx precision drivers with a good size shaft for disassembling most modern day electronics. I have one that has multiple bits in the handle. Also some that will work with a variety of security screws. I thing the important thing is a good size shaft. A lot of enclosures seem to have the screws recessed in them.
I went on a screwdriver binge a few years ago when I couldn’t open a case. The best I found were the Wiha sets (e.g., their “System 4” series). They cost about 4x as much as this set, but the quality is very good.
