The kit includes a battery and charger and a hub that powers the actual tools. The tools connect to the hub via a 3-prong connector that is at the end of the hub’s 4-foot cord. On the handle of the crafting tool, there is an LCD display that shows the temperature along with an on/off button and 2 additional buttons for controlling the temperature to increase or decrease degrees.  Both tools offer easy screw-on/off actions to change attachments. The Rotary tool has a chuck lock in the center of the handle of the tool that allows you to lock the chuck to tighten the attachment.
