Dremel has just launched a new 4V cordless hot glue pen as part of their new Home Solutions lineup of crafting and DIY-oriented tools and accessories.

The new Dremel cordless glue pen, model HSGP-01, appears identical to the Bosch cordless hot glue pen that came out 8 years ago.

We asked Dremel if there are any differences between their new model and the model that Bosch released in Europe 8 years ago, and have not yet heard back.

Dremel Cordless Hot Glue Gun Potential Uses

Dremel says this about the new cordless glue pen:

the Dremel Glue Pen is always ready when it comes to craft projects, DIY decor, costume and minor home repairs.

It’s said to heat up in 15 seconds and the built-in 1.5Ah rechargeable battery gives you about 30 minutes of runtime.

The Dremel HSGP-01 hot glue pen works with 7mm (0.28″) glue sticks which are widely available online and at crafting supply shops.

Dremel says the glue pen operates at 338°F.

The glue pen recharges via micro USB and has LED indicator lights. An automatic shut-off kicks in after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Dremel says that you can find this “exclusively at Home Depot,” but it’s listed at Acme Tools, and there’s also the option to buy the Bosch version from Europe.

Bosch Cordless Hot Glue Gun Pen

Discussion

Dremel says that their new rechargeable glue pen is “unlike any other glue gun,” but this isn’t actually true.

In addition to the Bosch version that launched in Europe, there’s the Steinel Neo 1.

Bosch also much more recently came out with the “Gluey”.

I purchased the Bosch version of the hot glue pen a few years ago, and while interesting it’s important to keep in mind it’s a small device meant for minor hot gluing tasks.

It’s not meant to replace full-sized glue guns, such as the Ryobi cordless models or standard corded tools, but is more sized for quick smaller glue-up tasks.

8 years is quite the delay, but late is better than never.

It’s unclear why Dremel chose to launch Bosch’s older-style cordless glue pen rather than the newer pen-shaped Gluey model, but maybe that one will come out later.
