I’m a big fan of the DeWalt brand. It was always my go-to brand during my days as an electrician and they never let me down.
When it comes to buying a new drill or replacing an old one, I recommend (in most cases) choosing the cordless option. They’re so much more versatile than corded drills. Especially if you’re working in tight spaces or there’s no electrical outlet nearby.

What to look for when buying a cordless drill
- The higher the voltage, the more powerful the drill. Most home DIYers will get adequate service from an 18v machine, but if you’re in the trade, you should choose a 24v or higher model. For light work, a 12v machine is fine.
- Battery capacity is rated using an Ah measurement. Ah stands for ampere hour or amp hour. The higher the Ah number, the more powerful the battery (and weightier too!).
- How many batteries? In an ideal world, you’ll want to have at least two batteries with one always fully charged and ready to take over if the one you’re using goes flat.
- Lithium-ion batteries are used in most cordless drills these days. They’re lightweight, more powerful than their older counterparts and they’re safer for the environment. You can charge a lithium-ion battery whenever you want (you don’t have to wait for it to go flat) and there’s no self-discharge (loss of stored charge) when it hasn’t been used for a long time.
- Brushless motors – drills built with brushless motors tend to last longer, provide better torque control and faster speeds due to reduced friction and heat build-up.
- Weight – always take into consideration the weight of the drill before you buy.
