Cordless Power Tools

Cordless power tools, are electrical or electronic devices, powered by a battery or battery pack. Whether they are used in construction, the auto industry or for the homeowner, the idea is simple. A cordless power tool, unencumbered by long and messy power cords, that is lightweight, easy to use, and fits in confined spaces.

The first cordless power tools, were heavy, due to the nickle-cadmium batteries used. Charging times were lengthy and tool use, limited by the charge in the batteries, was woefully inadequate. Since that time, there has been many improvements, in both the tool itself, and the type, size and charging capabilities of the batteries.

Leading the way, are the new Lithium-ion class of batteries. They're capable of holding twice the energy, of nickel-cadmium batteries. The high cell voltage of 3.6 volts, allows battery designs with only one cell. This capability, allows smaller, and lighter battery design.

In essence, batteries take less time to charge, cordless power tools work longer on a charge, and new design functions, once limited by the size of the batteries, are no longer a consideration.
