Cordless power tools are brilliant for non-professional DIYers. A cordless tool provides maximum freedom to the user as they can move around freely without getting tangled in numerous wires. Professional tradespeople often prefer corded power tools because of their better usage time, capacity and consistency.
The battery is an essential part of any cordless tool. You should thoroughly research the types of battery technology available for power tools and the best one for your project. Cordless models are changing every year, so make sure to stay updated on the latest technology and safety regulations. Consult an industrial equipment supplier to find the right tool for you and your project.
Here are some of the benefits of using cordless power tools.
Of course, the main advantage of cordless power tools is that there are no cords to worry about. You can move around unhindered by wires and get into small nooks and crannies that would have been tricky previously.
Batteries are the power source of most cordless tools, making them less bulky and easier to carry. Cordless tools help to keep your space tidy, organised and safe. A cable-free area is a much safer work site.
Less equipment, in terms of long cables and extension cords, makes your tool easier to store as well. Just make sure to clean your power tool after usage and store it in a dry location.
Lithium-ion batteries are the most common in cordless tools. These batteries hold large amounts of power, are lightweight and can be interchangeable with other devices. Rechargeable batteries can gradually lose their charge if you don’t use them for a while. It’s essential to give your power tool batteries the proper care and maintenance to get the most out of them.
Better weight distribution
A rechargeable battery will add a little weight to your cordless power tool. However, it will still be lighter and have a better weight distribution than a long and heavy cord. There will also be less strain on the user without the downward weight of a cable.
A cordless tool is more flexible and portable. You don’t need to rely on there being a power socket nearby to your project. You can work in tight spaces at awkward angles and work efficiently. Win, win!
Cordless tools are brilliant for mobile contractors who move between different sites.
However, corded tools are better suited to large construction jobs. In these instances, it’s better to have a tool that will last all day without needing to be recharged. The device will be consistently powerful all of the time, making it easier to get the job done.
