In the past, cordless hand tools were often considered underpowered and too small for larger DIY projects. However, the technology has come a long way, and manufacturers now offer a variety of models suited for home repair enthusiasts and professionals alike. Here are a few advantages of making the switch to cordless hand tools.
Why You Should Use Cordless Hand Tools
1. Increased Mobility
While some corded hand tools might be more powerful, they do have to be tethered to a nearby power source. This can be frustrating if you’re working outside, requiring you to run an extension cord or power up a portable generator. Cordless tools, on the other hand, can go anywhere, saving you the logistical challenges of finding a plug.
2. Lighter Weight
Battery-powered, cordless hand tools also tend to weigh less than their corded cousins, which makes transporting your equipment much less difficult. The lighter weight also cuts down on hand fatigue, allowing you to work comfortably for hours at a time.
3. Higher Battery Capacity
The recent advancements in battery technology have helped make cordless hand tools the better choice for almost any application. With today’s lithium-ion batteries, your drill, chainsaw, or hedge clippers will work all day without running out of power.
4. No Tripping Hazard
Tripping on a power card can cause serious injuries, especially if the tool is in use at the time. Using cordless tools eliminates the risk. This is one reason they’re becoming increasingly popular with construction professionals.
