Once the battery is charged, it can power a cordless tool. The most common is the cordless drill, but manufacturers now produce a whole range of tools that have never before been able to be used without a power cord. This makes it exceptionally easy to find the best cordless tools for you.

The three most common types of cordless tools are:

Cordless Screwdrivers

Cordless screwdrivers are small, lightweight, and simplified versions of cordless drills. Their power far outweighs their size, and they are great for simple and undemanding drilling and driving.

Apart from screwdrivers, drills, and impact drivers, there are many other types of cordless tools available on the market. These include:


 Angle Grinders
Band Saws
Caulking Guns
Chain Saws
Circular Saws
Concrete Vibrators
Hedge Trimmers
Impact Wrenches
Lawn Mowers
Line Trimmers
Metal Shears
Orbital Sanders
Oscillating Tools
Reciprocating Saws
Rotary Hammer Drills
Random Orbital Sanders
Screw Guns
Vacuum Cleaners


Most of the above tools are sold without batteries or chargers, and are generally labelled as ‘skins’. The concept behind ‘skins’ is that a single battery and charger can be used to power a multitude of tools. The most cost effective way of buying into a ‘skins’ range is by purchasing a cordless drill or combination kit that already has two batteries and a charger included. This way, it is then just a matter of purchasing the extra tools that you would like. Some retailers will even let you build your own combination kits to your exact requirements, so you can easily purchase the best cordless tools for you.
