    Smile Versatile and powerful gadget. Versatile, powerful gadget.

    Hello everyone,

    I want to know if there's a difference between listing similar types of adjectives like these.

    Powerful and versatile gadget.
    Powerful, versatile gadget.

    In my grammar book, it's written that, when we use similar types of adjectives, we must link them with an And, but it's not mentioned a comma is used.
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    No difference in my mind.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
