If you’re shopping on eBay for a cordless drill, plenty of options are available to handle all work or household tasks.

Types of cordless drill

  • Drill/drivers can be used to drill holes and drive screws into wood, metal, or plastic. They’re tough and ideal for installing a TV wall unit or similar. 
  • Hammer drills do the same thing, but they also have a hammer setting that moves the drill bit in and out so you can drill into brick, stone and concrete.
  • Rotary hammers are a bigger version of a hammer drill, but more powerful and used commonly in professional trades settings. 
  • Impact drivers are made for driving screws or loosening bolts – great for installing white round mirrors to the walls.

Battery

Most cordless drills use lithium-ion batteries (Li-ion). NiCd batteries, were commonly utilised in older models, however, have been replaced by Li-ion because these are better at supplying high-range power over the life of the battery. Sized according to voltage, cordless drills might be 12V, 14.4V, or 18V. High-voltage drills are more powerful and feature-rich, but they are also bulkier and heavier. 

Features of cordless drills

There are a range of other main features to look at when choosing cordless drills:

  • Chuck jaws: The chuck is where the drill bit goes. Most of the time, you'll need a 13mm chuck to fit bigger drill bits.
  • Clutch: The more settings you have, the greater control you have of screw depth.
  • Speed: Drive screws with low settings, drill with high settings. 
  • Reverse/forward: Needs easy access so you can switch easily.
  • Hand grip: Should be textured, contoured and comfortable.
  • Trigger: Variable speed is ideal, and you want to make sure its spacious for larger fingers.
