    Might be ever so slightly OTT. Mine shears off M12 bolts!!

    How about just a little non impact cordless screwdriver?

    The bits probably keep breaking because you are using an impact driver.
    I'd probably buy a cheap, and light, battery driver, there are loads of brand choices.
    I'd definitely be doing up terminals by hand every time though.
