Question by loopy lulu: How do I find out which is the best cordless screwdriver?
My husband has asked for a cordless screwdriver for Christmas – I don’t know anything about them (neither does he) and there are hundreds of them. It would be used for general household DIY but I know he would like it to be good quality. I’ve tried searching in on-line etc. but nothing came up that was really helpful…

    I had the same Dewalt DC720 drill and wore out the gear head. A replacement gear head costs almost as much as this bare drill. Since I already had batteries I bought this bare drill and couldn’t be happier with it’s performance.

    Review of DC720 Dewalt Tool Only, February 25, 2013

    “Disappointed” is an understatement. I’ve used previous models of DC720 for more than 6 years installing steel studs, acoustical ceilings, hollow metal doors, hardware, and cabinetry with much success. First time used drill chuck would not grip 1/8″ drill bit. Even #7 drills used for pre-tap hole, slips due to inability of chuck grip. Clutch mechanism will not drive screws to depth and clutch out. This unit is unacceptable and not worth the money invested.

    I was happy with the fast shipping and the way this tool works. I would recommend it to anyone requiring the same type of tool. I do feel it should have been packaged betetr prior to shipping even thou it arrived undamaged.

    If you’re looking for something for general use I would look at a cordless “drill” more than a cordless “screwdriver.” With a drill you get a “chuck” that will fit driver bits and any kind of drill bits. This gives you a lot more versatility than just the screwdriver. Also, most cordless screwdrivers are extremely underpowered, even for light homeowner/diy uses. You will probably be most satisfied buying something in the 14 volt nicad range. If you opt for the pricier lithium ion powered drills go with at least a 12 volt. You’ll also get a lighter drill with lithium ion batteries and they’re charge doesn’t fade the way nicads do. Remember, you can never have too much power, but you will be greatly disappointed when you buy a low powered drill the first time it fails to run a screw fully into a piece of wood. Also make sure it is a variable speed. This will allow you to change the torque levels which will give you a higher speed for drilling, and a lower speed to drive in those tougher screws and bolts.
    I can’t tell you which is the best as I have only used a handful of them. However, I’ve had great luck with DeWalt and Milwaukee. Seeing as Black and Decker and Dewalt are virtually the same, one would expect there products to be similar in quality. I haven’t used any B&D drills but the price is right.
    You’re really only limited by your budget. Take a trip to your local lowes or home depot and ask the sales associates there to show you the drills with the qualities I’ve listed. It’s easier to decide something like this when they’re in front of you and you can play with them a little. Then after you decide, if you’re like me, you can go home and order it through eBay. Drills are usually 20-35% cheaper there for the same product.

    I really like Makitas and have owned several.
    I don’t think you could go wrong with a basic Makita.

    You can usually buy these in a cased set with the battery, instructions and maybe a selection of bits. If no selection of bits comes with the one you find, get a simple set of bits, sholdn’t cost more than about $ 15 for the bits. To give him the complete drill/driver set, get him a set of drill bits too, that’s another $ 10 or so.

    I remember when my brother bought me my first cordless drill/driver, he was teaching me construction. It was awesome to learn how to do all that ‘guy stuff’ which 20 years later I now take rather for granted. I spent my Sunday afternoon building a huge and heavy sandwich sign for an art show I’m doing later this month, all the ladies in the show are so impressed that I do the power tool thing and can make stuff. I get a big kick out of it. Anyway, Makita is a good, solid brand and not too expensive.

    I just looked at the answers above me and have a couple things to add. Dewalts are just fine, and if it’s a decent price with a lot of accessories, you’d be fine with that too. One of the answers above is talking about a drill with a ‘chuck’, I always get chuckless drills. The chuck is a little extra tool you need to change the drive bit or drill bit and it’s easy to lose them. I don’t like chasing down missing parts, so I get chuckless. There are lots of different weights of drills, I have a really heavy duty one (my dewalt) that I leave a paint stirring tip in for mixing big buckets of grout. I use my regular sized Makitas for general purpose stuff, and if this is your husbands first drill, he won’t need a big heavy duty one.

    Makita is awesome. Just avoid anything made by ryobi. That stuff is CHEAP.
