Cordless Drills Under £100

Best Cordless Drills Under £100 UK Reviews 2017

In this article we will be having a look at the best cordless drills that cost less than £100 in the UK. These types of drills are available at a whole range of price points. For under £50 you can still pick up a really good general purpose cordless drill/driver that will do most jobs around the home.

If you are willing to spend more than £50 then of course you can purchase a much better product, with a great deal more features.

Below I have looked at what I think are the best ones available in the particular price points of between £51-99.

There are plenty of choices from most of the leading brands such as Bosch, Dewalt, Makita, Ryobi, Worx, Einhell, Black & Decker etc.

Battery Type

I strongly advise that you should only ever buy a cordless drill that uses a Lithium-Ion battery. The days of the older Ni-Cd have all but gone and have now been replaced with the Li-Ion type of batteries.

They hold their charge longer, are faster to charge, are lighter and suffer none of the problems associated with the older style of battery. For this money you can get a huge number of available drills with these high quality batteries.

​Top Rated Cordless Drills Under £100

​Some people buy their tools by brand whereas others simply buy on value for money. Below I have listed the best drills based on actual buyer ratings. These ratings have been left by real life buyers who have bought the product, used it and then taken the time to write a review. I have summarised these reviews to save you the trouble.

No 1 Choice - Dewalt 18V Cordless Lithium LXT Combi Drill

This one comes out at the number one choice in this price range. It is of course from the excellent Dewalt brand and this one comes with a 3-Year warranty for peace of mind. I am a huge fan of this brand and the quality of their tools is second to none. This is an 18 volt drill and has the hammer function. It comes with a good quality carrying case, one battery and a fast charger. The average cost is £86 but please note that price varies regularly, so please check at the time of the purchase.
