Should I choose corded drill or should I go for a cordless drill? What is the difference between them? Which one would be suitable for my work? These are the questions that come in mind when we think of buying a drill for the job. Both corded and cordless drills do more or less the same thing, but some key features are specific for each drill. Check the difference between a corded and cordless drill and decide which to choose for the job.
|Properties||Corded Drill||Cordless Drill|
|Power Supply||More electricity creates more power. It produces more amperage delivering more power for continued operation.||Its battery power might run out during a job.|
|Power supply is compatible with only one tool.||The batteries used with cordless drills are rechargeable and can be shared across multiple cordless tools.|
|Torque||It produces more torque making the drill more powerful and efficient||With less power, it produces lower torque and the drill becomes less effective.|
|Mobility||These drills have to be plugged into an electricity source or outlet. So, the user must be near an outlet to use them.||You can take them anywhere regardless of the closest power source|
|Weight||These drills do not carry bulky and heavy batteries. So, these are a good deal leaner, lighter, and smaller.||These drills are dependent on batteries. So, these are a bit heavier than corded drills and are more tiring to use for a longer time.|
|Usefulness||These produce high and consistent torque. So, they can do anything such as crewing, wallboard installations, and boring holes, etc.||On the other hand, these drills may not yield enough torque for some applications such as hammering.|
