I am looking for a great tool kit with precision tools to open cell phones and laptops.

I use just whatever I have at home and scuff up all my tech :D

What do you guys use? All in one kit.

Any Amazon Prime offerings?

Well I got a partial kit from iFixit when I brought a replacement screen and battery for my iPhone 6. They seem to be the go-to kit but they don't have an electric screw driver. I might invest in their full kit when I really need to but so far don't need it.

I grabbed this one when I was looking for plastic pry tools to work on laptops (pretty sure it was on sale... but maybe not)....


It's a bit pricey, but has pretty much all you're going to need.

Lifetime warranty returns at CT stores. Thats a bonus. I live 10 minutes walk from my CT store

Heh... out of all that kit for $30, the really useful tool is the guitar pick..... :)

(Although I suppose the specialty screwdriver bits for cell phone hardware would come in handy if you're doing stuff that small.... :) ).

If you're going this route... don't forget rakuten and triangle..... :) (I do online ordering with in-store pickup which gets me both bonuses),

I guess I should stock up only on the guitar pick... but if I buy from CT I get lifetime warranty lol
