Best Rated Cordless Drills and Drivers (Battery Powered)

If you are in search of best rated cordless drills and drivers, this is the text to read, I present my own battery-powered drill and give a list of the most popular items of this type on the market.

I have always had such battery-powered drills and drivers at home, and I have been using them in several different environments and in different countries where I have lived in the past. The most recent is my Bosch PSB 1800 Li-2 shown in the top picture above. If you are in the US, then this particular machine may not be so important to you, this brand seems to be less known there.

But this is one of the best-known brands on the EU market, and this particular battery-powered drill & driver is one the best selling items at various sellers. You will see it everywhere, in shops and also on online sellers. As of the moment of writing this text, it is the bestseller number 2 at Amazon-UK. This may change when you read the text of course.

Anyway, I would say this is one of the most useful machines that I have been using in recent months, together with my Black & Decker sander. This is because we moved into a new house recently and I have been doing many small works inside and outside. This particular machine has been extremely useful inside and this is because all the walls are either wood or drywall (gypsum), so I do not need anything more powerful.

For such surfaces, this battery-powered drill is simply perfect. The top picture shows its two batteries and the recharger unit, this is about the lithium-ion type, and they work great, I have been using the machine for several weeks without recharging or replacing the battery. The picture below shows its battery charge status and you can see it is far from empty.

The white round dot visible above is a lamp that points to the place where you drill, so this is a very useful feature. However, just to know, if you have to drill holes in brick or in standard plaster, you will have to use something much stronger. I had to close a small ventilation opening on the outside wall, and wanted to make holes for a few screws, and this machine was useless. So I used my heavy-duty Makita drilling tool.

As mentioned above, I have used quite a number of such cordless drill-drives in the past, and I know that they have limited use for small works. But they are also very useful when this is about narrow spaces. The mentioned Makita drill turned out to be simply too big for works at some complicated spots inside the house. As you see from the picture below, this battery-powered machine is so small and very handy; the red button above the trigger allows for changing the rotation direction, and this is also very easy to do.

Small, handy, and easy to use.

The rechargeable battery on the bottom is easily removed, there is a red lock button on the battery shown in the picture below.

A few more practical applications for this and any other similar machine: We were buying lots of new furniture from Ikea, and this is where I used my Bosch PSB 1800 Li-2 drill drive a lot. As you probably know, products of Ikea are relatively inexpensive but this is partly because you have to do lots of work yourself to assemble the parts. I also have to do some more repairs around the doors and windows in the house and plan to use some polishing accessories like those shown in the picture below.
