What is the best cordless drill? Choose a model that is compact enough to allow you to work in confined spaces. Just ask yourself a question — Where am I going to use it? And then check the product’s size to make sure you will be able to maneuver it with ease. Another thing to consider is a number of clutch settings and speed options.

You will need to choose one of the two main types: either you want a driver-type drill or a hammer-type one. The latter comes with a hammer setting that allows you to work not only with metal, wood, and plastic but also with stone and concrete. Most modern models operate on Li-ion batteries, which differ by capacity measured in Ah (ampere-hours). The larger the capacity is, the longer the drill will run.

This is a drive-type model that boasts huge popularity among customers. With a weight of a bit more than 3 pounds, the unit is very compact, allowing you to easily work in confined spaces. Thanks to its 11 clutch settings, you will be able to complete the most challenging tasks when working with metal, wood or plastic. You may try a more expensive drill from Bosch that has as many as 20 clutch settings, two speed options and a built-in LED light allowing you to work with more precision in dark spaces.
