Cordless Drills for Women

Cordless Drills for Women
James Brown once claimed that it was a “Man’s World”. Maybe it was in 1966, but that was a long time ago. We manly men often loathe to admit it, but our bruised egos have finally accepted that women really can do anything that we can do. This truth extends from the office to the home, and now to that last bastion of manliness- the garage. No longer does the wife yell at her husband when a picture needs to be hung, or a chair needs a screw tightened. Now, she handles such tasks herself, with her very own cordless drill.

Equality issues aside, there are some general physical differences between adult men and women that make the “ideal” cordless drill for one, less so to the other. Hence, the burgeoning market of cordless drills for women. This buying guide has assessed several models and has selected those models as “best” for women based on several key factors.

1. Ergonomics- Important regardless of sex
2. Grip- Whether or not it would be comfortable for a smaller hand
3. Weight and Balance- Lighter weight options were given preferential treatment
4. Drill Speed- Sufficient for household use
5. Easy Battery Removal Option- No one likes a cantankerous battery
