Corded vs. Cordless Drills
Cordless drills are convenient, compact, and easy to maneuver, so they can be used anywhere. You’ll appreciate cordless flexibility when you’re out in the yard repairing a gate or up on a ladder installing a light fixture. A lithium-powered cordless drill such as our 20V MAX* Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver will give you plenty of runtime for basic projects.
Corded drills require a power source and tether you to a cord, but they offer the benefit of unlimited runtime and increased power for large or complex projects you want to finish without recharging a battery. You can’t go wrong with a corded drill like this BLACK+DECKER™ 20V MAX* Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver.
*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. The nominal voltage is 18.
