For the occasional user I think corded are probably preferable. Battery technology has improved but still the most likely part to fail.

Personally I don't see this as that good, I would say buying one of their cordless for not that much more money is a much better investment. Corded are good when lots of power needed but then this isn't very powerfull. It is however cheap and may be useful in a workshop or similar, so not voting either way...

Fair enough, i think you’ll struggle to find a cordless drill/driver with 40nm of torque though for £20
Cordless are good but on the flip side at least with this you don’t have to worry about the battery conking out half way through a job
Plus you’ve got that extra power when if you need it.
Swings and roundabouts.

Cordless would be convenient, but this offers very good value for money. Voted hot.
If you are near power doing lots of screws like decking this is a good tool. I got one of the 12v cordless lidl ones with the removable chuck, and it is very handy if you need to drill pilot holes, don't have to unscrew the chuck, just take it off, and put the driver bit in.
Can someone recommend a cordless drill or screwdriver that would be powerful enough to drive a screw into wood without having a pilot hole drilled first? Like you see in the DIY programmes? Thanks

Can't beat an impact driver for torque, great for driving screws. We just have a cheap Lidl 18V cordless one from a previous offer, it is 180 nm torque (I think it was about £40 with battery, and made by Grizzly), 1/4" hex drive.


Also puts much less strain on your wrist than a high powered traditional drill/driver.

Impact driver will do what you're asking, albeit quite loudly. What's more useful is using screws like SPAX, Turbogold or Woodspur that have a cutting edge ground on the tip of the screw that will cut into the wood as they are driven. This also only works with light-medium density woods like pine, MDF and some plywood. Hardwoods will either clonk out the driver from lack of torque or snap the fastener right off.

Taking the effort to drill at least a pilot hole will greatly reduce the amount of driver power required, ergo less powerful tools = less expensive tools.
What drill bits do I need for the screwdriver action ?
