Is there a special name for the type of cordless drill where the chuck
is prevented from rotating when switched off?
I don't mean a specific chuck lock device, I mean where (like on my
Metabo cordless drills) where the chuck is locked automatically when
the drill isn't rotating so you all you ever have to do is twist the
chuck to add/remove tools, there's no separate locking action required
and you don't have to use two hands on the chuck.

These are often described as "one handed" or "single handed" chucks.
Found on the better drills. Cheaper ones have the tow section counter
rotating type that need two hands. Alternatively the chuck does not get
a mention and the drill spec includes "auto spindle lock" or similar.
