    Diavolo 16v cordless mini polisher

    I have been looking for a less expensive alternative to the RUPES Nano cordless polisher and found Diavolo. They offer a 12v micro polisher, that looks like a Nano, and a 16v mini polisher.
    I picked up the 16v mini polisher from Amazon, and it came with 4 extension shafts, 3 backing plates (1", 2", & 3"), and several 1", 2", & 3" pads, and a 2" brush. In the letter included with the polisher I was offered a 2nd battery, and of course took them up on it.
    The polisher is a good size, but not too heavy. The on/off switch uses an over/up motion, kind of odd, but it works fine. It is a rotary, with no DA adapter.

    I picked up small RUPES blue pads from Sky`s the Limit, and tried them on my Frontiers headlights with RUPES Zephir polish. It only took about 45 seconds with the 2" pad to remove the hazing (I keep up with the headlights, so they did not need much work). Having the extensions made it much easier, as the polisher body did not get in the way.
    I plan to pick up one of their Flex Nano extension polishers soon.

    I`m sure this is a great tool, and by the price it just tells you how overpriced the big names are. I`d love an Ibrid, but it`s crazy how much they cost imho. I`ve never used a rotary except for about 5 minutes at a Meguiar`s class I took a bunch of years ago. But, with a 1 or 2" pad I don`t think I could do that much damage.

    Or could I? lol.

    It is a small surface area so you can only damage a little! But small rotary machines are much easier use than a big one. I have gotten comfortable doing headlights with a electric drill, so this was much easier.

    I have seen this model come and go on Amazon. When I contacted the company they said it was due the availability of the extensions.
    If you have any questions, just reach out to them from their website. They have been very good at replying to my questions.

    I bet it *is* a whole lot easier! I always found using a drill for...well, anything other than drilling holes...really awkward, but this unit looks plenty user-friendly.
