Clearing Up 7 Common Misconceptions About Cordless Power Tools

by Anna Styles

Without the need to connect them to a power source, cordless tools are convenient for use in settings in which there is no power, or you need to move them around a lot from site to site. Smaller in size than their corded counterparts, and lighter, they are also more compact and therefore easier to move around and store. 

In spite of their popularity due to being battery powered and with their ability to help improve the productivity of whoever is using them, may people are still reluctant to use them, and there are a number of common misconceptions surrounding cordless power tools and their suitability for certain tasks.

Let’s clear those misconceptions up and if you were reluctant to use cordless power tools based upon any, or all of them, you might just change your mind:

  1. They don’t have enough power

While popularly believed that cordless tools don’t have as much power as corded tools, this in fact isn’t true. In the majority of instances, cordless power tools are no less powerful than corded varieties. 

  1. They don’t have enough volts

Certain power tools, including drills, circular saws and hammers require a higher amount of voltage, but for many power tools, fewer volts such as what you might find in a cordless tool, are more than enough to get the job done efficiently. 

  1. They take longer to charge

Nowadays, batteries come with some pretty advanced technology, meaning that they can be charged in a lot less time than used to be the case. In fact, many cordless power tools can be fully charged in under 45 minutes. 

  1. They’re compatible with all kinds of chargers

Nope, not true. Not all chargers are the same, and you’ll find that some come with additional computing power, for example, or can measure volts, amps and resistance of batteries. As such, it’s important to check the exact specifications of the charger system before plugging your cordless power tool in. 

  1. They have a feature protecting them from overcharging

Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t possible to overcharge a cordless power tool, hence there is no requirement for an overcharging protection feature. Once the battery of a cordless tool has been fully charged, it will simply remain that way until it’s next used. 

  1. Corded tools are always better

You may be advised that corded tools are automatically better than cordless ones, and that you should always strive to kit yourself out with as many corded tools as possible. However, there’s no evidence to support that corded tools are always a better fit for the job at hand, and users must decide which they choose to use based upon the specific requirements of the project, and personal preference. 

  1. You should stick to older cordless tools

The cordless tools of old might be more reliable and even be easier to use, but newer models have so many new and helpful features that they are always going to give you better results than older models, when used in the right hands. 

If you need to know more about cordless power tools, or would like to purchase some, you can reach out to an online tools supplier or call into your local tool store.
