This category is for the best all around 24v cordless drill. There are several reasons why you may decide to go with a 24 volt drill rather than an 18 volt. One good reason would be for extra torque, perhaps for dilling into concrete or brick. Another reason would be to get a more heavy duty drill that can take more abuse and keep on going.
Our pick for the best all-around 24v cordless drill is the Milwaukee 0726-22 28-Volt V28 Lithium-Ion 1/2-Inch Cordless Hammer Drill/Driver Kit:

This is actually a 28 volt drill, but it certainly belongs in the 24 volt cordless drill category. With the advent of newer battery technologies sometimes it makes sense to have different voltages than the ones we are used to seeing. This drill uses newer Lithium-ion technology for the batteries. Here are some of the reasons we picked the Milwaukee V28 Cordless Hammer Drill.
- It delivers 600 in. lbs of maximum torque versus 442 for our 18v pick.
- At 6.7 lbs there's enough metal and carbide to have a rugged drill without being cumbersome.
- The previous version got excellent reviews at Amazon and numerous other places around the Internet (this is an updated version).
