From powered screwdrivers to drill drivers, hammer drills, breaker drills and more – the wide world of drill choices is confusing enough, and that’s without getting into the subject of whether cordless or corded drills are right for you.

We know that many of our customers find themselves torn between drills they can take anywhere, and those that are tethered to the nearest power outlet.

Though ultimately identical in purpose, both corded and cordless drills have their own distinct advantages which make them better at some jobs than others, so, which should you choose?

Corded Drills: Advantages and Disadvantages

Corded drills, as the name implies, won’t function effectively unless they’re tethered directly to a power outlet. That’s because, unlike cordless drills, they don’t have an inbuilt battery pack they can draw power from.

Whilst this might strike you as inferior to a cordless drill, such a configuration actually boasts a number of distinct advantages which make the corded drill perfect for serious drilling jobs. Those advantages include:

  • Lighter, more compact bodies, owing to a lack of inbuilt battery
  • Higher power and more consistent torque
  • More reliable drilling and driving action
  • For professional usage, corded drills are vastly preferred for these reasons.

However, they do have disadvantages, which include:

Must be plugged into power outlet at all times Cables can create a tripping hazard

Cordless Drills: Advantages and Disadvantages

Cordless drills, on the other hand, run entirely by battery power. This is advantageous for a number of reasons, which we’ll go into below, many people consider cordless drills to be just that bit more convenient than their corded counterparts.

Some of the major advantages include:

Portability; cordless drills can be taken anywhere, provided you’ve got a full charge

Rechargeable batteries; you can recharge the batteries at the end of the working day. Plug the battery in for a few hours to recharge and this will save you money in the long run. Greater adaptability means that for hard-to-reach drilling jobs, cordless drills are better

Those advantages mean that for the hobbyist or person with lower requirements from their drill, the cordless drill makes a lot of sense. With that said though, they do have their downsides, which include:

Lower power levels and less consistent delivery than corded drills Batteries can deplete, leaving you twiddling your thumbs whilst you wait for them to recharge. Tip: Having more than one battery allows you to use a fully charged one while the other charges Cordless drills are generally heavier than corded ones Cordless drills do, however, make a tremendous replacement for a hand-powered screwdriver and are more than capable of doing smaller jobs on site or are often used for DIY around jobs around the house.

Are Cordless Drills Worth It?

If it's a cordless model, you can drill holes and drive screws with the same tool—and not have to worry about finding an outlet near the work to power the drill. The good news: There are hundreds of these drills on the market. The bad news: It's not always clear which drills you should be considering.

What to Look For in a Cordless Drill?

Chuck jaws: Maximum capacity on most drills is 3/8 inches. Some 14.4 and 18V drills can handle 1/2-inch-diameter bits.

Clutch: More settings give you greater control of the depth screws are driven.

Speed-range switch: High is for drilling; low is for driving screws. Look for the widest range between them.

Forward/reverse switch: Should be easy to operate with your thumb and trigger finger.

Hand grip: Texture and contour should aid your grip; try out the grip before you buy. Voltage: More voltage means more power but also added weight.

Battery: Two are better than one. New NiMH batteries offer some advantages.

Trigger: Make sure your index finger fits around it comfortably when gripping drill. Variable speed offers the greatest control. Keyless chuck: Hand-turn it to open and close the chuck jaws.

All of our Cordless Drill are made from quality materials that are guaranteed to be safe, comfortable and will last for a long time.
