These are the best cordless drills around, which will no doubt make your DIY projects much easier to carry out. And with top-rated picks from brands such as Makita, DeWalt and more, you can find a drill that suits you perfectly. If you need a more affordable cordless drill, then this round-up also has plenty of options that still pack in great features for an excellent price.
Of course, the defining feature of the best cordless drills is power, with most models offering at least 20 volts to get to work with. That’s a fine amount of power for handling most jobs around the house, but if you’re boring holes or undertaking heavy duty work, you may need something corded to afford you more force.
A good spin speed is another feature of the best cordless drills that you’ll want to look out for on your search. For tasks like drilling screws, a slower speed is fine, but tougher tasks will need a higher number of revolutions per minute (RPM), which is why a variation of speeds can come in handy.

The DeWalt DCD991P2 is the best cordless drill overall due to its power, three speeds, and it has a brushless motor. This cordless drill isn’t the cheapest but for what you pay, you get a drill that can reach an impressive 2000 RPM, and the three speed settings mean you can still manage finer jobs that require a slower speed too.
An LED torch will illuminate where you’re working and because this DeWalt cordless drill’s motor doesn’t have brushes, you can expect the motor to last longer as well. For its price, you’ll get two batteries and a charger and when it comes to heavy-duty drills, this DeWalt model really is one of the very best around.
Power is something the Milwaukee 0726-22 M28 Hammer Drill certainly isn’t short of. This cordless drill hammer packs a punch with 28 volts of power and a brushless motor that gives you 750-in-lbs of torque.
Where this cordless drill really impresses is its hammer mode that goes up to 480 impacts a second, which is great for taking on masonry, providing you use the correct drill bit. This kind of hammer drill has been designed to make light work of bricks, mortar, and concrete and its drill speed ranges up to 1800 RPM.
You have the option to buy the drill alone, or you can buy it with batteries too but with the batteries, this drill is one of the most expensive we reviewed and it can’t be used as a corded model. It’s also pretty heavy weighing 6.2-lbs but that’s to be expected with the amount of power it comes with.
The Kobalt KDD 1424A-03 cordless drill is the best value drill we reviewed. Why? Well, this cordless drill is more affordable than most of the models we looked at and it also rivals some of the biggest brands, but without charging the same amount.
The 24-volt battery and two speed settings mean this cordless drill is ideal for pretty much any DIY job, excluding heavy-duty masonry drilling. Included with this drill are 24 clutch settings, something you’d expect from the most premium cordless drills around.
