10 Best Hand Drills For Your Personal Use

The List is ordered predominantly based on reviews from company websites and users on Amazon. These drills/drivers are ranked as per their amiability in household work. The main points considered are, ease of use (i.e how easily can bits be changed, weight..etc),  Durability, Control options and value for money. Points such as warranty and support are ignored. This is done because warranty offered is almost the same for all the products.  In case of available support, there is no way of quantifying of how much of it is available and how much is enough for a particular user. It is to be noted though; almost all the brands offer some sort of rudimentary support.

Rankings in this article are by no means universal, user experiences may vary.  Classification can change based on preferences of the buyer, say for example Lithium Ion batteries are considered a Pro and LiCAD batteries are a Con, this case holds true for heavy duty persistent use and where the time of completion is paramount. On the contrary if shelf-life of the battery is more important than Lithium Ion batteries are a disadvantage as they die out in 2-3 years’ time, regardless of use. So check out this list of 10 best hand drills and pick the one that you find best.
