Out of all the models on this list, the Panasonic cordless drill definitely has the longest battery life. This alone would probably make it one of the best cordless drills by default, but an additional pro is the much-sped up 45 minutes charging time. You will practically get more power for less time, something that is a rarity on the market.

The motor has surprised us the most, as it is virtually impossible to overheat it. Welded using a laser and equipped with state of the art cooling technology, it can deliver in two-speed modes, with 390 lbs/in of torque. Although it may seem pricey at first, we’ve concluded that it has quite enough features to compete with the best and most powerful cordless drills on the market.

Holding it feels comfortable and natural. The light weight and the compact design help you work in any space or condition. A maximum speed of 1450 RPM rounds up a long list of improvements from previous models, along with outstanding precision and an ability to function and do work just about anywhere.
