Good Grip A conventional-sized cordless drill is a bit much for tasks like installing cabinet doors and electrical devices; a better option would be a cordless screwdriver such as Metabo's palm-sized PowerGrip II. Powered by a 7.2-volt lithium-ion battery, the little driver has 20 clutch settings plus a drill function and produces 141 inch-pounds of torque. The kit — the tool, two batteries, a keyless chuck, a 20-piece bit set, and a case — costs about $200. Metabo, 800/638-2264.
