Cordless Drill black and decker

A cordless drill/driver is a  tool designed to drill holes and drive screws easily and rapidly unlike a screw driver. A drill is a keyless chuck. It accepts a wide variety of round- and hex-shank drill bits and screw-driving bits, as well as hole saws, rotary sanders, wire-wheel brushes, and other accessories. All cordless drill/drivers are also equipped with a slip clutch that allows you to adjust the amount of torque for precise, consistent screwdriving. 

Since a few years now, more and more people are turning to impact drivers. What is the difference between impact drivers and Cordless drivers?

Impact drivers vs Cordless drills

Impact drivers are very similar to cordless drivers, but more stronger. An impact driver is a tool design to drive screws like cordless drill/drive. Unlike cordless  drills, the impact driver does the job faster and easier. It uses a rotational and downward force to loosen screws, bolts, corrosives srews and others. An Impact driver delivers two to three times more torque than a normal screw driver.
