Cordless Drill Batteries Provide Flexible Power

Update:  please find our recent cordless drill batteries review article here.

Cordless drill batteries have developed rapidly over the past 20 years. While early cordless drills were sometimes lacking in power and had relatively short lifespans, today's batteries utilize the latest in charging materials and technology to provide short charging times, long battery life, and maximum power output. When cordless drills were first introduced, cordless drill batteries typically used Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) batteries. These batteries were based on recharging technology that was nearly 50 years old, and today's NiCad batteries offer more power and better stamina thanks largely to the efforts of cordless tool manufacturers. Makita, Ryobi, Black and Decker, and DeWalt are three industry leaders in cordless drill battery technology, and a look at each manufacturers product line will help to explain many facets of cordless drill batteries.
