When you are halfway up a ladder attempting to drill a hole or tighten a screw, the last thing you need is long cords getting in the way of your progress Not only can cords be inconvenient, but they can be dangerous too.

Fortunately, a solution is available in the form of cordless power equipment. You may already have a small handheld rechargeable screwdriver or a similar tool, but what about the more robust and powerful cordless power equipment? Are these worth the money, and which is right for you?

The Freedom of Cordless Power 

One of the biggest advantages of cordless power equipment is the freedom they bring to the user. With no cumbersome cords to hold you back, you can reach places that were otherwise inaccessible and experience better freedom of movement.

As long as you keep your power equipment fully charged, you should get similar power and performance as a corded tool would give you. It's also a good idea to keep one or two spare batteries charged for the larger jobs or when you need to use your tool continuously for a long period of time. 

Superior Portability

Another benefit of opting for cordless power equipment is their portability. As batteries continue to become more compact and lighter in weight, the prospect of choosing cordless tools over corded tools becomes more and more viable. They are simple to transport and store and are perfect for when you need to relocate to different job sites or work on a range of different projects over a short space of time. They are also perfect for outdoor areas or areas where you have no or little access to power sockets. 

Perfect for Home or Commercial Use

Cordless power equipment is perfect for having on hand around the home. From hanging pictures to impromptu drilling jobs, you can grab your cordless tools and go. For the commercial or industrial jobs, these tools offer an excellent alternative in areas that have poor access to power, where you need to work outdoors or when you need more freedom of movement.

With a wide range of cordless power tools available on the market you should be able to find the right tools and equipment for the job at hand. And with more and more advances being made in battery size, weight and life, these tools are likely to become more and more popular with domestic and commercial users alike.
