Cordless Drills Under £100

Best Cordless Drills Under £100 UK Reviews 2019

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.
