When you’re looking for the perfect tools for your next big project, one question often stands out above the rest: Cordless or corded? FEIN power tools, known across the globe for their quality, versatility, and reliability, are available in both corded and cordless varieties. Choosing one or the other will have a definite impact on your project and will reverberate through future tasks.
Every project is different and every tool has its own pros and cons, but here are some general guidelines for choosing between cordless and corded FEIN power tools:
Power, Power, Power
Generally speaking, corded tools deliver more power than cordless tools since they’re connected directly to a power source rather than a battery. FEIN’s cordless tools perform almost as well as their corded counterparts, but there’s no doubt that battery life and total power output will be concerns for folks who depend on their tools all day every day. Cordless tools are a better fit for construction tasks that take you away from a reliable power source.
The problem with corded tools, of course, is that they have to be plugged in to function. This makes it harder to work on early construction or projects that don’t lend themselves to easy power access. Cordless tools give you more flexibility since they can be deployed in a wider array of situations.
FEIN has made a name for itself as a leading manufacturer of high-quality power tools. Both its cordless and corded offerings are durable and reliable. However, there’s no question that corded tools are, over the long-term, more reliable than their cordless counterparts. Again, if you’re working with a constant source of power and you put in long hours, corded FEIN power tools are probably the best bet.
