Cordless Drills: What to Know Before Buying

Having a powerful drill in your tool kit can be extremely valuable during a self build or renovation, whether you’re fitting a new toilet or skirting boards, or demolishing an old masonry fireplace.

Cordless drills enable you to complete a variety of DIY tasks and projects, you just have to make sure the drill is well charged — this can be especially practical if you’ll be moving around a lot, such as when climbing ladders or moving between rooms.

Cordless drill power is measured in volts, so the right drill and battery will likely depend on what you need it for. Battery sizes typically range from 12V to 20V, and the higher voltage rating will make it more suitable for heavier work.
