I've had for several years, and it works great. I prefer to hand-tighten fasteners, but this gets my lug nuts off easily every time, and it's way cheap.

the link you posted is for a drill and will have nowhere near enough torque to tighten lug nuts. you need to be looking at impact wrenches. something like this

If you think you can use an electric tool and not hand tighten you're wrong. Why do you need this anyway?

I just need to get an impact wrench to REMOVE only the lug nuts then I will use a torque wrench at the appropiate force as the manual stays to tighten the lug nuts

How often are you removing the wheels? Seems like a breaker bar and a torque wrench are all you'd need.

I just bought a cheap ($30-$40) 1/2 electric impact gun from HF. Plus another $20 for their deep impact sockets. Mine is corded though and I think OP needs cordless because he doesnt have a garage with outlets.

Sooooo much nicer being able to blast the lug nuts off on a wheel in under 30 seconds.

Anyways, if HF sells a cordless version I would buy that.

I have a HF $75 or so 1/2" corded impact and I am completely unimpressed with it. Can't break my hand tightened lugs and I sure as hell wouldn't trust it to tighten them.

I live in NYC and have gone thru a couple cordless impact drivers. Just not worth it. Best thing is keeping a breaker bar in the trunk to loosen the lug nuts and hand tighten and torque to spec. Harbor Freight sells the torque wrench too.

Off track, kudos to the OP for changing his own oil in this cold weather, I do my own as well every November and May myself.

Get a h3/8" torque wrench that should cover 10 to 100 ft-lbs which is pretty much all youll ever need. Stuff less than 10 ft-lbs is really just "snug" and doesn't require and exact torque. The only place where I wish I had a 1/4" was on the spark plugs where spec is 13 ft-lbs and my 3/8 one (and all torque wrenches) arent as accurate when they-re near the bottom or top of their range., My torque wrecnch is GearWrench brand...available on Amazon and made in the USA (surprinsingly). (Also, for the oil drain plug you just need to tighten it until good-and-snug and it will be alright...no one uses a torque wrench on those)

Also, the lug nuts are 19mm metric. I know there's a SAE size thats close to 19mm (like 19.05mm) but everything on our cars is metric.

Just pick up a from Harbor Freight. $10 and lifetime warranty.

Accuracy is pretty spot on too.

Torque Wrench Testing - Shop Tools

Car Craft, April 05, 2013

The torque wrench is probably the car crafter’s most often-used specialty tool. If you’re like me, you may still have your first torque wrench; I got my Craftsman 1⁄2-inch drive clicker style as a Christmas present in 1972. It is the oldest tool in my toolbox. But veteran status might not necessarily mean it’s accurate. We contacted Cornerstone Metrology in Van Nuys, California, a company that does calibration work for both industrial and individual mechanics. We needed a highly accurate test procedure to measure our torque wrenches, and Director of Quality Keith Chauvie showed us the digital scale that was accurate to within 0.10 of a pound, which suited our test just fine since we weren’t going to be working on the Mars rover.

We originally gathered a small collection of standard 1⁄2-inch drive clicker torque wrenches including a Snap-on, a Craftsman, and a Harbor Freight. Then we discovered a digital torque adapter sold by Harbor Freight. This small unit fits in between a standard 1⁄2-inch drive breaker bar and the socket, and using a digital strain gauge, it converts the torque applied through the adapter into a digital readout. At a typical Harbor Freight price of $39.99, we decided to include it in our test. We frankly didn’t expect this little unit to be very accurate. But testing proved otherwise.

We ran the torque adapter through five consecutive applications of 70 lb-ft of torque to watch it hit within 0.10 of a lb-ft twice and actually hit exactly 70 lb-ft on one occasion. The average of the five tests was an amazing 70.1 lb-ft. The unit offers a digital readout and warning lights, and it even emits a progressive electronic beep when nearing the pre-selected torque.

Next, Chauvie suggested an even more interesting test. He offered to keep our Harbor Freight 1⁄2-inch clicker wrench and test it every 30 days for two months while keeping the wrench loaded at 70 lb-ft. He said the problem with clicker torque wrenches is, when the mechanic fails to return the preload to its lowest setting after each use, the tool begins to lose accuracy. Chauvie says the longer the wrench is loaded, the less accurate it will become. He has since reported on the torque wrench’s performance at 30 days and 60 days, and we’ve included a graph to show the results (page 30). This inaccuracy occurs because the internal spring loses its tension, allowing the wrench to break away (click) at a lower torque value. Chauvie says this is a common problem for all types of clicker torque wrenches. The point here is that you should always return your clicker torque wrench to the base setting before storing the wrench. This simple step will maintain the wrench’s accuracy for years instead of mere months.

This graph shows three tests of a Harbor Freight 1⁄2-inch clicker torque wrench that Cornerstone performed over a period of 60 days. Test 1 is the original test that shows the wrench varied between 69 and 70.3 lb-ft. Test 2 shows what happened to accuracy after leaving the wrench at the 70 ft-lb setting for 30 days. Notice how the curve retains its repeatability but is down an average of 2.6 lb-ft. Test 3 is the same wrench after 60 days. Note how the spring in the wrench has relaxed, which has not only leveled out the testing but reduced its accuracy down to an average loss of 4.4 lb-ft. As the chart shows, the wrench now torques to roughly 65.5 with a setting of 70 lb-ft. If the wrench were left for longer, the actual torque would continue to drop.

We tested a variety of torque wrenches on Cornerstone’s digital bench unit and were impressed with the accuracy of the Harbor Freight tools. We tested torque accuracy mainly at 70 lb-ft but also at 20 and 120 lb-ft.

We also tested the Harbor Freight unit against a Snap-on digital torque wrench costing far more, and readings from the two tools were generally within 0.20 lb/ft.

If you are more the mechanical-clicker-torque-wrench kind of guy, we also tested Harbor Freight’s 1⁄2-inch clicker torque wrench, and it was also very close. It also has a range of 20 to 150 lb-ft and a lifetime warranty. Accuracy after five consecutive tests at 70 lb-ft ranged from 68.8 lb-ft (-1.2) to 70.3 ( 0.3), with an average error of 0.30 ft-lb over five tests. It doesn’t get much better than that for a mechanical torque wrench.

For your lug nuts, get a 1/2" drive torque wrench. I think they're on sale at Sears....get the mechanical click type (20-150ft/lbs). For smaller nuts and bolts (i.e., the oil drain plug, etc), get a 3/8" drive torque wrench (10-75ft/lbs). If you return then to zero after each use and you don't beat on them, they will last for years. HF sells thin 6 point lug nut sockets that have nylon around the outside, to prevent scuffing your rims.
