A cordless cable cutter sounds like a good idea, but many in the electrical trade find the existing models to be problematic. Electricians can testify to the drawbacks associated with cordless cable cutters such as their excessively large size, which can be frustrating, especially when using one in a tightly packed electrical box. Besides the size, the cost of one of these devices has often deterred many potential beneficiaries from purchasing a cordless cable cutter, opting out for a manuel cable cutter instead.
