A Battery Drill Vs Corded Drills
When you’re buying an electric drill, you have to make one big choice: Should you purchase a battery drill or should you buy a traditional drill that plugs into an electric outlet with a cord? Neither drill is the wrong choice, of course. There are pros and cons with each drill. The decision to buy either a corded or a battery-powered drill comes down to your own preferences. It’s best to take a careful look at how you work before making the decision to buy either a corded or a battery drill. The benefit of a battery model is obvious. You don’t have to worry about attaching it to extension cords before working. The battery drill is perfect for a quick job; you won’t waste any time untangling power cords or searching for the nearest electrical outlet before hanging that new shelf or reading lamp.
There’s a downside too, of course; you never know when your drill’s batteries are going to run out of juice. And what happens if you don’t have any replacement batteries when this happens? That’s right, you’ll have to take an unwanted break from your repair project to head down to the local store to buy some new cordless batteries. It can all stretch out a simple project unnecessarily. The benefit, then, of a corded drill is that you always know you’ll have the power to operate it. Simply find an electrical outlet, plug in your drill and get to work. If the nearest outlet is located too far for the cord that comes with your drill, simply attach an extension cord and you’re good to go.
The good news is that there are many varieties of both batteries powered and corded electric drills on the market today. If you need a high-end, powerful drill capable of tackling any project, you can find it. If you’re more of a reluctant home repairman, you can also find a number of more inexpensive electric drills designed to handle smaller projects. Just make sure to shop around before you buy your electric drill, corded or battery powered. You don’t want to spend too much for whatever drill you decide to purchase. Some shopping around will make sure you pay a fair price for your electric drill. Again, there is no wrong or right version of an electric drill. Some people prefer a battery drill for their convenience, while others prefer traditionally corded drills for their reliability. Decide what’s more important to you, and then purchase that drill.
