The Lowdown on 20V Cordless Drills

A cordless drill is an essential tool in anyone’s collection. They are portable, handy, and able to attach a variety of fittings. A 20V drill is standard in the industry, and most models are powered with a rechargeable lithium battery, or use disposable batteries. Here is the lowdown on 20V cordless drills.

How they work

Drill heads are powered motor inside the handle drill, allowing a hole to be made or to insert a screw into a wall. This makes a cordless drill an irreplaceable inventory tool. 20V drills have enough energy to power through any job.

When choosing the right drill, it is necessary to know a few terms for a drill’s lithium battery

such as its voltage. A drill’s voltage is the electrical potential, or the amount of power available. The ampere is the measure of the rate of current. The Ampere-hour (Ah) is how much of a charge is needed to allow one ampere to travel through the electrical circuit in an hour.

All of these factors are affected by the environment a battery is used in. In other words, extreme hot or cold usage can result in a lower battery power.

Drill features

Manufacturers build drills with a variety of features and with different capabilities. Here is a selection of factors to look for when choosing your next tool.

*Voltage: 20V is one of the most common types for in-home usage, although up to 36 volts can be used for non-heavy industry work. The lower the voltage, the less powerful the device.

*Power: The power of a tool is measured in UWO. It tracks the torque and speed values.

*Torque: The torque is the ability of the drill head to turn and create a force to make a hole or install a screw. The torque on most drills is enough to handle most surfaces. Harder materials require a drill with a lower speed and greater torque.

*Motor: Drills are made with different motor types each with a different torque amount. They are also sometimes made with brushless motors which are more quiet and efficient than regular ones.

When you are on the lookout for a new tool, be sure to select a 20V cordless drill with plenty of torque.

The trigger for the drill is built into the grip.

Be sure to pick a handle size which is comfortable, and if possible, pick it out from a store which allows you to handle it before purchase.

Consider a cordless drill. The battery is rechargeable and it can be handled for the duration of a project, and powered back up later.

Drill manufacturers also sell different attachments and accessories to maximize their capabilities.

Here are a couple of examples.

Combo kits are packages that include both drill and driver. Some may have a hammer attachment while others may carry bits. They also sell  charging stations for portable batteries. There are voltage changing batteries available that let you run the tool according to power usage.
