Battery-Powered Power Tools: Assessing The Pros and Cons

Home Improvement
There are a lot of choices when it comes to project equipment. You can choose from hand, corded and battery-powered tools to complete all the projects around the house. The question is what kind should you get?

Battery-powered equipment is very convenient, but there are some downsides as well. If you are interested in buying power tools for around the house, here are the pros and cons to help you make your decision:

Positive Aspects

* Portability Well, this one is obvious. You are not limited to the distance from the wall outlet to the tool. You should not try to increase this distance with an extension cord either because that can be dangerous as well as reduce the power. With the battery-operated pieces, you can go wherever you want to and not be tied to the wall-literally.

* Safety If you have a lot of power tools plugged in, the cords can become an accident waiting to happen. You don't have to be clumsy to trip on a cord and if kids are around, they may trip or pull on the cord as well. Also, the cord itself is more apt to become damaged over time which creates a dangerous electrical situation.

* Convenience Again, you aren't tethered to the wall outlet and you can get into spots not accessible with a corded piece because the battery-powered ones are often smaller than the corded ones. They also come with carrying cases that you can just pop them into and take them on the road or wherever. You don't have to roll up a long cord before you store it.

Negative Aspects

* Cost The battery operated pieces are typically more expensive than their corded counterparts. Usually the more convenient option is also the more expensive. Plus, there are more expenses than just buying the equipment. For these, it is a good idea to purchase a second or even third battery to have as a back-up. This way, if you have a time-consuming project and you run out of juice, you can switch them out instead of waiting to charge up again. If you don't buy a second one, the aspect of convenience is kind of negated.

* Power Power tools run on a portable charge tend to be less powerful than their corded cousins. However, the difference, depending on the quality of the equipment, is negligible. If you are a hobbyist or just have simple projects to complete, the battery version should be sufficient. For bigger more complicated projects, you may want to consider corded ones.

The best thing to do before buying any power tools, whether corded or battery-powered, is to do your homework. Hop on-line and check for reviews from owners as well as businesses. Go into your local home store and ask for demonstrations or a class.

Try out both kinds to see what feels most comfortable. Chances are good that a battery-powered machine will be sufficient for your project needs, as long as you don't forget the extra battery!

Makita 18v power tools are run on Lithium Ion batteries that consistently deliver high power and provide a longer run time than any other standard battery. Browse the collection of cordless power tools online at
