What Are Cordless Tools?
Cordless tools are just that, power tools that do not have a cord because they are powered by a battery or battery pack. This allows cordless tools to offer users power, convenience, and the portability when power outlets are out of reach. Acme Tools is an authorized retailer of major cordless tool brands including Milwaukee, DeWalt, Makita, Bosch, and Hitachi. Many other brands are available at Acme Tools!

How Do Cordless Tools Work?
Cordless tools operate just like corded power tools, minus the cord. Cordless power tools are powered by rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries offer many benefits including the ability to be reused, reasonable charge times, and when multiple batteries are used the ability to continuously use the cordless power tool.

What Kinds Of Batteries Do Cordless Tools Use?
Cordless tool battery types include: Nickle Cadmium (NiCd), Nickle Metal Hydride (NiMH), or Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries. Li-Ion batteries are the newest and most innovative because they are lightweight, less sensitive to heat, do not suffer from self-discharge or memory effects, and have a long battery life. For example, the Milwaukee M12 & M18 batteries are insanely efficient Li-Ion batteries that are meant for the respective Milwaukee cordless tools. Similarly, the DeWalt also offers Li-Ion powered FlexVolt and 20v Max batteries for its cordless tools.

NiCd and NiMH batteries are older battery styles, but they offer great benefits including long battery life, long life cycle, and shorter charging times.

Why Should You Use Cordless Tools?
The most obvious benefit of cordless tools is their portability, making cordless tools ideal for those who travel or work on remote, powerless jobsites. However, cordless power tools also offer other important benefits such as their smaller, lightweight size. If you’re sick of cords and are looking for lightweight, easy to store power tools, then cordless power tools are the perfect solution.

Cordless power tool combo kits are available at Acme Tools. Cordless power tool kits include various bundles and combinations of cordless power tools. Cordless tools kits are a great value, helping you to buy multiple tools without blowing your budget.
