Dremel Versa Power Cleaner- FirstLook

Elbow grease not needed!

Dremel has a reputation of being a “must-have” tool for hobbyists and DIYers. The versatility of its rotary tool was the main reason for Dremel’s success.

Leveraging on that strength, the company has expanded the line, and hopefully its customer base, with devices designed to be useful for every day tasks around the house. The first of the line is the Versa Power Cleaner.

Dremel Versa Power Cleaner Kit

  • High-speed scrubbing in a cordless compact size
  • Rechargeable lithium-ion battery
  • Quick and easy accessory changes
  • Dry and wet applications

At first glance, the Versa Power Cleaner looks very similar to the palm sander in a woodworker’s shop, and in a lot of ways that’s what it is.

The curved back fits comfortably in the palm of the hand. The size and weight (3.5″ handle, 2lbs) are easy for anyone to handle and hold.

The main difference between the Versa Power Cleaner and the woodworker’s palm sander is that the Power Cleaner’s attachments can be quickly swapped when a new cleaning task presents itself; guess that is kind of the same as changing sandpaper grits…

The kit includes the following:

  • 4VMax Dremel Power Cleaner Tool,
  • Heavy-Duty Pad,
  • Eraser Pad,
  • Non-Scratch Pad,
  • Bristle Brush,
  • Backing Pad, Splash Guard, and Charger

The Versa pads have velcro on the back, which makes swapping them quick and effortless: its just peel, place, and stick. While this is definitely a nice convenience, depending on the durability of that pads, we will see whether it is worth the pad replacement costs.

The two key features which we think “make ” the Versa Power Scrubber is that 1) it is cordless and 2) it can handle both dry and wet scrubbing.

Not having to drag a cord around is absolutely key. Being able to handle dry AND wet tasks means we can use it to scrub both frying pans in the kitchen and clean dirty rims on a car. Try THAT with a palm sander 🙂
