Cordless Drills

What is a cordless drill?
Cordless drills are handheld rotary tools that can be operated using specially designed rechargeable batteries removing the need to a mains power source. A range of drill types are available to suit a multitude of jobs. Cordless drills are designed to make holes as well as loosening and tightening screws and bolts. Lighter weight and free from cables, the added manoeuvrability means working on site and in tight or restricted spaces is easier and with less fatigue. Cordless drills commonly come in four voltage ratings, 10.8V, 12V, 14.4V and 18V, these give an indication to the power of the drill, with higher voltage drills providing more power on the job.

Lithium-Ion, also known as Li-ion, battery advances in recent years has allowed power tool manufacturing to advance, providing more powerful and longer lasting tools. A tools compatible batteries can come in a range of Amp Hour (Ah) capacities. This Ah capacity relates to the life of the battery while in use. Higher Ah capacity batteries last longer than those with a lower capacity.

Cordless Drill Drivers
Drill drivers offer two functions, the ability to drill holes in wood or metal and to drive and undo screws and bolts. Equipped with variable speeds and torque settings to ensure each job is handled safely, however, offering lower torque than on an impact or combi drills.
