Are battery powered drills better than ones you have to plug in to the wall?

    It could be better or worse considering what you mean. It’s better in the sense that it is more convenient because you can reach places that may be out of reach with a plug and you don’t have to worry about an extension cord. If you charge the battery and have a good drill, they last a long time so it’s the convenience of also not having to worry. If you aren’t diligent about charging it, however, it might run out during a time when you need it. As for the energy draw of a battery-powered vs. plug-in drill, I wasn’t able to find a side by side comparison. Even after the battery is charged, the plug pulls a small amount of electricity so make sure you unplug it once it’s charged. It’s presumably pretty comparable otherwise.
