This cordless powertool from Makita must be one of the best 18v drills on the marked today. This Makita comes with two LTX lithium-ion batteries, which in fact has 2,5 times longer lifecy​le than the ordinary ni-cad battery, and a 15 minute rapid optimum charger. This is the drill with the shortest charging time I`ve ever seen.

The 4-pole motor delivers 4​80 inch.lbs out and with ​1900 rpm/​28500 ​bpm this machine is a beast. This cordless drill weigh​ts only 3​.4lbs and is only 8 inches long, which you can clearly call a compact design. It comes with a 3 year warranty on tool, and 1 year warranty on battery and charger.

Final Verdict

Most of the home users of battery drills are reluctant to spend $150 on a cordless drill. They maybe use their drill a few times a year and don`t want to lay to much money into it. But do you have to spend that much money to get a quality drill? I have good news. No you don`t. Below I will show you a list of the best cordless drills under 100 dollars. Of course you can get lower quality drills for much less than I`m listing below, but in this article I will focus on quality drills from Dewalt and similar brands. They will save you some money in the long run anyway,as they tend to last forever.
