Bosch Tools using the CORE18V™ Lithium-ion battery technology in its cordless tools represents a big advantage for power tool users
Bosch cordless tools using the company’s CORE18V™ Lithium-ion Battery deliver maximum power at minimal weight, an achievement that proves this lithium-ion battery’s claim as the best-built battery among leading competitors. Next-generation power cells allow CORE18V lithium-ion batteries to offer better performance than competitive a lithium-ion battery that has up to 24 percent more weight and up to 35 percent larger size.1 (1 vs DeWalt® FLEXVOLT® 6.0 Ah and Milwaukee® 9.0 Ah) The Bosch cordless tools using the CORE18V Lithium-ion Battery benefit from optimized cell technology and an improved power connector within the 10 high-density battery cells that ensure lower internal resistance. That means higher currents can be drawn from the battery pack over a longer period of time.
Bosch Cordless Tools offer Greater Lithium-ion Battery Performance, More Runtime
Bosch has answered the need for stronger and longer-lasting battery performance in high-load applications where cordless tools have previously been unable to provide enough power and runtime. The Bosch CORE18V Lithium-ion Battery delivers up to 20 percent longer runtime than previous-generation Bosch 6.0 Ah batteries and up to 50 percent longer than 5.0 Ah cells in extreme applications for Bosch cordless tools.2 (2 Based on independent testing – Intertek 2016 – runtime 5.0 Ah and 6.0 Ah) Thanks to its advanced cell technology and power efficiency, the CORE18V battery can generate more current to finish jobs that other batteries can’t. In addition, it’s the most compact and lightweight high-power power tool battery available.3 (vs DeWalt® FLEXVOLT® 6.0 Ah and Milwaukee 9.0 Ah)
“Bosch looks at battery power from the user perspective. What do users want? They want greater power and more runtime in a compact size, which is what CORE18V Lithium-ion Batteries are all about,” said Theron Sherrod, product manager, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “CORE18V represents a big piece of the Bosch effort to build end-to-end product systems that offer superior performance, no matter what the job is. Based on increased power and runtime, plus backward compatibility across the full power tool lineup, we feel this is a step beyond battery power systems that are currently available.”
CoolPack Advantage to Lithium-ion Battery Cells in Bosch Cordless Tools
The battery housing of Bosch CORE18V Lithium-ion Battery is designed to transfer more heat to the outer surface, resulting in up to 35 percent better cooling effect than previous CoolPack batteries and enhances the performance of Bosch cordless tools. The CoolPack 2.0 system employs a design that keeps the battery pack cooler for better runtime and longer life; updated CoolPack technology provides up to 135 percent longer battery life than batteries that don’t have CoolPack technology. In addition, this technology combined with reduced resistance and higher efficiency means that the battery is less likely to overheat during high-load applications.
Bosch CORE18V lithium-ion batteries provide 100 percent compatibility with all 18-volt Bosch cordless tools and chargers. Bosch is developing high-power tools to take full advantage of the CORE18V power advantage. There is free upgrade to the existing CCS180 18V circular saw which requires a new handle fix (at no cost from Bosch) to accommodate the CORE18V battery. New Bosch CCS180 18V circular saws on the market in mid 2017 should all have the upgraded handle that fits the CORE18V 6.3 Ah Li-Ion battery.
