If you are out to buy your first drill, and confused over corded or battery operated? This article would be more appealing to you since everything about Corded Vs Cordless Power Tools is covered. Today, battery operated tools are not the ones they used to be in the past decade .Over the years, battery technologies have improved to a higher extent. The old and bulky Nickel Cadmium batteries have been replaced by the compact and newest Lithium ion batteries. The Ni-Cd batteries store less charge and discharge quickly as the cells are not efficient compared to Li-Ion.
Here in the table below, all the advantages and disadvantages of both types of power tools have been mentioned. This will help you make a choice.
Hope you get the idea. Overall, its not about the investment. Its about the purpose of usage. This decision is similar to choosing between Laptop and Desktop. Both have their pros and cons. Just by having the same processor, it doesn’t mean they perform the same. It depends on cores, threads, Ghz etc. Similarly, even if the capacities of both drills is 10 mm, it doesn’t mean, they drill a 10 mm hole, 5mm deep, in steel at equal times. It depends on the motor torque and gear ratios.

A point that I didn’t mention in the table. When it comes to Drill, Cordless drills are very comfortable to hold in single hand than corded drill (my personal opinion). Corded drill has its motor in the front along with chuck. This makes it heavy on the front end, as you have to balance the tool and at the same time you have point it correctly and maintain that posture. In battery operated drill, weight distribution is perfect. Battery is located below. Motor behind the wrist, and gear box and chuck in the front. That’s a nice balance of weight for single hand use. Also, if you haven’t bought your first drill, I suggest you to go through this article on Drilling Machine Buying Guide.
Now, let me make this review unbiased. Corded tools manufactures do not offer bundled tools to its customers. Battery operated tools have bundled offers. But if you are looking just for a cordless drill or angle grinder, then don’t buy them separately. Buying from the same manufacturer may save some money as you can skip batteries since you already own one of their product.
The Cordless combo kits generally include 4 or 5 power tools in a single bag. Circular Saw, Angle Grinder, Saber Saw ( Reciprocating Saw), Torch, Oscillating Multi-tool, Drill, Impact Driver, along with minimum two batteries is bundled together. The package bundle depends on the price, brand and voltage range. Ultimately, Its all up to you to decide.
