Cordless screwdrivers in use: Practical tests focusing on drilling and screwing with Einhell
The cordless screwdriver - one of the most important tools for DIYers and tradespeople - in practical tests. The cordless drill driver combines two devices in one: a drill and a cordless screwdriver. Whether you want to screw together a shelf or drill a hole in the wall: With a cordless screwdriver you have the perfect device in your hands - and it's cordless too! Simple handling, a diverse range of fields of application, and an impressive price-performance ratio are what make the Einhell cordless drill drivers stand out from the crowd. In this blog article, we help you find the right model for you, set out the advantages offered by an Einhell cordless drill driver, and show you how to make the best use of it.
Brushless motor technology
Modern cordless screwdrivers don't need carbon brushes! And we prove this is exactly the case every day with the brushless motor technology in our devices and models. Many models of the Einhell cordless drill driver range use modern, brushless, electric motors. Compared to conventional motors in drill drivers, these motors are particularly quiet, easy to maintain, and energy-saving - and they also deliver more power. This is particularly important when using a battery. Friction losses or unwanted breaks due to overheating or dead batteries are a thing of the past!
Let's take a closer look at the advantages of brushless energy technology in our drill drivers:
Maximum performance without compromise
Better performance with fewer friction losses: The brushless motors in our cordless drill drivers enable higher revolutions per minute and more torque compared to conventional electric motors.
Minimal friction and minimal downtime
Our cordless screwdrivers are also suitable for bigger projects: Due to low heat generation, the devices can be operated for longer durations at higher capacities without overheating.
No wear and the utmost reliability
The brushless motors in our cordless drill drivers are not subject to carbon brush wear through mechanical abrasion. Compared to conventional devices, the service life is significantly longer.
Small motor and big effect
Brushless motors can be designed more compactly, saving you space and weight. This is how we can make our cordless screwdrivers more compact, lighter and easier to handle.
Higher efficiency and maximum service life
More power and stamina for your cordless drill driver: Because brushless motors cause no friction losses, the Power X-Change system's battery output can be used very efficiently in your cordless drill driver.
The Power X-Change battery system
Tangled cables are a thing of the past with innovative battery technology for all your power tools and devices! Power X-Change offers cordless freedom, not only for your drill driver, but also for many other tools and devices. For sawing, drilling, gardening equipment or even electric scooters: The flexibility to swap the battery and the tool makes it possible to power all devices in the Power X-Change family using just one type of battery and no cables. But that's far from all:
Top quality and tested for safety
Only the highest quality lithium-ion cells are used for the Power X-Change batteries in the Einhell rotary hammer drills. This is how we ensure that we can supply your tools with consistently high quality at all times. Compared to conventional batteries, our models ensure maximum stamina and flexible power.
Intelligent electronics and efficient battery protection
The active battery management system ensures the highest level of safety and power when using your cordless drill driver. The system monitors the inside of every Power X-Change battery for all safety-relevant influences and controls the optimal use of individual cells. In this way we efficiently prevent typical damage to the battery, such as memory effect or deep discharge.
Reliable performance and safe handling
The special Power X-Change charging device which you can purchase in a set with a cordless screwdriver, is particularly powerful and safe. Internal control modules ensure that the cells in the battery are charged uniformly and correctly. In this way, the chargers ensure maximum service life and more enjoyment when using a lithium-ion battery in your cordless screwdriver!
One Battery - thousands of opportunities
Much more than just a battery for your drill: From lawnmowers to rotary hammer drills and cordless mitre saws: Power X-Change is a complete battery system gardening enthusiasts and DIYers can use to operate a wide variety of tools and devices. Over 170 devices are already part of the PXC family - and this number is always growing. Our sets containing the device, lithium-ion battery and charging device are real price-performance champions, and not to be overlooked!
Our tips and tricks: The cordless drill driver in use
Here's how to properly screw and drill with a cordless drill driver! These Einhell tips will show you how to correctly use a cordless drill driver step-by-step - and how quickly and easily you can do it, too!
Correctly screwing and drilling with the drill driver
From just screwing in one screw to putting up a whole set of shelves: Drill drivers are essential for DIYers as they save you both time and energy. So that the screws can be screwed in firmly and securely, you should follow these tips:
The right bit: Always make sure that you use the right bit for the screw. The packaging on the screw should tell you which that is. Then place the bit straight on the screw and use only very light pressure with the cordless drill driver. The screws should be slowly drilled into the workpiece to avoid any damage. For this purpose, Einhell’s cordless screwdrivers have a torque adjustment which allows the speed to be controlled.
Always use the right screws for the right workpiece. There are different screws for wood, metal and other composite materials. For walls or concrete, you should pre‐drill and use corresponding dowels.
Drill deep enough: Drill the hole with the drill driver or impact driver deep enough that both the dowel and the screw fit in completely. Important: Always position the cordless drill driver straight and keep the angle to the wall or ceiling constant. You can usually find specific information about the depth of the hole on the packaging of the dowel. When you move the drill back out of the hole, make sure to go at a slow speed.
Then remove any drilling dust from the hole using a vacuum cleaner. Only then can the dowel be properly secured. Then you can screw in the screw or mount the furniture or shelves.
Safety when screwing and drilling
As a rule, you should pay attention to your safety before drilling or screwing with the drill driver. This includes using the necessary safety equipment such as safety goggles and gloves, and thoroughly checking your tools and materials. Check that the battery is fully charged, that you have the right drills and bits for the attachments, and that ladders, supports and workbenches are secure. Once you've checked everything, you can get to work!
Summary: With the right technique, working with the cordless drill driver can be child's play
As you can see, a cordless drill driver is the ultimate all-rounder for us DIYers. It makes all your screwing and drilling work much easier and it's also cordless and extremely flexible thanks to the battery.
