Dremel


What do you plan on doing with it?
Cost of replacement batterys and a shorter running time come to mind.

Dremel


Nothing heavy duty just around the house chores. Cutting small holes, Sanding, Grinding. Whats the run time mainly on them if you know.

Dremel


I would go corded.....

A Dremel is one of those tools that you don't use very much....I use mine maybe twice a year....hence, if it had a battery....the battery wouldn't last long. When you get ready to use it, you will most likely have to charge the battery....

Rechargeable batteries need to be used and cycled regularly to give the the longest life....sitting idle for 6 months at a time kills them quick.

If your going to use it several times a week....and it needs to be portable...then go battery.,...

If i went cordless would i get the same power as the corded one. That's my main concern. The one im looking at is the Dremel 8220. Also whats the main difference between the 1/28 or 2/28 models.

Dremel


I've had my Dremel for so many years now I can't remember getting it,
It's one of the most useful tools
And not once can I remember thinking I wish I had a cordless Dremel
Go for a corded one

Dremel


I've had both. The cordless one was next to worthless with a short run time and inferior speed. I now have only my corded and will never buy a cordless one again.
