Top Features | Best Cordless Drills

Our Rating – This is based on our own research in product testing and user feedback. Clicking on each product takes you to the retailer’s product page where you can read customer reviews on the product you’re interested in.

Best Value / Top Rated – Products that we consider to excel in a certain area such as value for money, reputation or technology have been given one of our aforementioned labels of recognition.

Drill Type – There are different types of cordless drills for different purposes.

  • Hammer Drills – this type of drill can drill through stone, metal, wood and masonry. However, it cannot be used for concrete unless it’s combined with another drill type.
  • Impact Driver – this drill uses a powerful high torque to efficiently drill large screws into metal and wood. Recoil is hugely minimized thus offering a safe performance.
  • Combi Drill – if you want versatility, then a combi drill provides exactly that. It combines a hammer and screwdriver function with an impact driver to offer the ability to drill holes and drive screws through a variety of tough materials.

Battery – The type of battery used in a cordless drill will directly affect its performance. A poor quality battery will result in a weak drill and short usage times. Generally, lithium ion batteries offer the best performance in terms of the ability to hold its charge, consistent power and longevity.

Battery Indicator – Displays how much power is left until the battery needs to be recharged.

Speeds – A drill that offers you different speed settings provides you with more control and it’s advisable to adjust the drill speed according to what accessory you’re using and the size of hole you’re drilling.

Torque Settings – Torque is measured in newton metre (Nm) and the higher this number is, the better the torque is (rotational force). A wide range of torque settings allows you to adjust the drilling force to suit the type of material you’re drilling into; low torque for delicate materials and high torque for tougher materials.

Connection – The section that holds the drill tip in place is called the chuck, and a chuck that can hold up to 13mm is suitable for a wide range of drilling tasks.

Auto-Lock – When the drill is idle, the drill spindle automatically locks which allows the accessory to be changed quickly and easily with just one hand and without needing any additional tools.

Forward/Reverse – Allows you to easily switch from driving to removing screws.
