How to Choose a Cordless Drill

A power tool every homeowner should have.

If you recently bought your first home or are a longer term owner considering what tools to have on hand, a cordless drill should be a part of your power equipment inventory. In addition to other cordless devices such as screwdrivers, lawn edgers, hedge trimmers and garden sheers, a cordless drill can be taken anywhere and help you get the job done with the right amount of torque and no cumbersome wires to trip you up.

Let’s take a look on how to choose the right drill for your needs:

Battery Voltage — When choosing a cordless drill you’ll come across different products, with many claiming to do the same thing. You can cut to the chase by ranking your choices based upon battery voltage — the greater the voltage the more power you’ll have for boring holes. The top of the line models offer 18V power, but the trade off for these is that they weigh more. You may find that a 12V drill is sufficient for your needs and at the right weight too.

Battery Choices — Battery technology has been changing and this is important because battery life and recharging times have improved. Nicad or nickel-cadmium batteries were once the standard, but these are being replaced by nickel-metal-hydride or NiMH batteries. NiMH batters are smaller, lighter and more environmentally friendly. Be mindful that quick charge batteries, although convenient, tend to wear out faster. Smart chargers, however, employ technology that can give you a quick recharge in under 10 minutes without damaging the battery.

Get a Grip — Figure that grip will be very important to you especially if you have a lot of work to do around the house. Choose one with a T-handle to get the best grip, avoiding pistol grip cordless drills that are difficult to manage in tight spaces.
