Thanks for taking your time to read our reviews of the best cordless drill under £50 in the UK marketplace. The average price for a cordless drill with a battery is around £90-100.
So if you have a budget of £50, then drills from the higher end brands will be out of your reach, such as Dewalt, Makita and Bosch. That said, you can still buy a good basic cordless drill/driver from brands such as Black and Decker, Hilka, and VonHaus
Many buyers in the UK know they need a cordless drill, and they most likely just need it for some basic DIY tasks around the home. We have done a lot of research and we fully understand the sensitivity of price points and value for money.
For this amount of money, we are sure you understand that you are not going to be able to buy an all singing and dancing drill. We also know that £50 is still a lot of money for buying one tool.
We have carefully researched what drills are available for this type of budget and have created a top 5 list which is shown just below.
I haven't put this drill in our top 5 as it's not always available but Makita are currently running an offer on their Makita WZ DHP482 18V White Cordless Combi Drill model. This might not last too long but it's a bargain at £52, so that would be my first stop!

Compared to the competition I think this is a real bargain as a starter kit for anybody. You get everything you need in the kit and the drill is actually really good quality for this price. You can get cheaper drills but not with a full range of drills and bits, and certainly not with the same build quality.
