Fantastic quality unit, it heats up 15 seconds instead of 5 minutes (like my previous mains powered glue gun), and it charges from an included micro usb charger which is super handy of you've forgotten to bring the original charger with you on a job.
The auto retraction system also works generally very well and contributes to much less mess being made.

It can make your life easier by being a good glue with you instantly. All you need to do is put the glue stick and press the power button and wait until becomes ready. I Used it to paste small part of broken table wood, stick the Hook of my name plate from my work and even to stick the sole of my sandal. Recommendable.

This is for gluing stuff down. It came with the glue gun, 4 sticks of glue, and the charger which is everything you need to start and I didn't need to buy anything else. So far used it on cardboard to plastic and metal to paper and it worked well.

I expected a lot from this Bosch glue gun & it hasn't disappointed. I'm pretty impressed.
The trigger & rubber grip feels solid & gives me full control over how much and where the glue ends up. You can easily draw or trace a line on a surface for decorations. It's well balanced, has a tough casing & feels comfortable to use. I dare say this will last many projects. The pointy nozzle on it is great for tight little jobs. I found it particularly easy to use glueing in photo frame corners. Very handy that it charges off a micro USB cable.
Pros - Accurate feeling trigger - Balanced weight & comfortable grip - Great in tight spaces - Tough casing - Micro USB charging
[VINE CUSTOMER REVIEW OF FREE PRODUCT. Find out more: https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/vine/help] The wireless nature of this glue gun is the best part, but also, unfortunately, the worst part. It is the best because you’re not stuck 30cm to an outlet, but you also can’t use it when the battery is charging or when it runs out so you can be mid-way through a project and unable to progress any further until the battery fully charges again which can take 2-3 hours. I used it the first time to make a craft project and some decorations for Valentine’s Day with my toddler. I only used it for around 5 minutes and it only used one glue stick in that time. It took a bit longer than the advertised 15 seconds to heat up and the glue dried very quickly despite only ejecting small amounts of glue at a time so I had to work very quickly. The head stays very clean, unlike other hot glue guns I’ve used in the past. It’s very clear that this isn’t your stock standard cheap, craft hot glue gun, the feel in the hand is as great as any other Bosch tool.
