The 3 Best Small Cordless Drills December, 2022 (And 16 Other Models)

This list presenting the latest small cordless drills includes only drill drivers that satisfy these specs:
  • In our book, small drills must fit in tight places, which means they must be short, with an overall length of no more than roughly 7 1/2 inches (or 19cm)
  • A light weight is also a factor, so we limited this list to models weighing less than 52 ounces (or roughly 1.5Kg)
  • AlphaChooser currently only covers cordless drills, so all models shown here are cordless (but most small drills are cordless anyway)
