Electric screwdrivers, or cordless screwdrivers, serve the same function as a handheld screwdriver: driving screws. However, an electric screwdriver allows you to do it more quickly and easily. They save time and effort on projects that require a lot of screws.
The head of an electric screwdriver comes equipped with a socket or chuck to hold the bit. It may use a magnetic or quick release system to allow you to quickly insert the bit you need. Due to their smaller size and lightweight design, electric screwdrivers can typically work in smaller spaces. They work well in home DIY projects and, depending on the size, may operate using only one hand.
Electric screwdrivers differ from drills. Drills typically see use boring holes and driving screws while cordless screwdrivers can primarily only drive screws. They also differ in size and the amount of torque. Cordless screwdrivers come in smaller sizes and produce less torque than a drill.
A drill can often accept driver bits, which allows them to also double as a screwdriver. Though drills offer more versatility, an electric screwdriver works well as a tool for someone that does occasional or light duty repairs. It also helps drive screws in tight spaces where a drill may not fit. Someone who does more dedicated work may choose to opt for a drill or include both a drill and an electric screwdriver.
