    True, good point, but I can honestly say that bosch have some of the better batteries in the cordless industry,
    We recycled plenty of cordless tool batteries, and by far, Bosch battery packs seems to outlast the competition,
    I think they want to put out a solid reliable battery, then put out the tools to use with them? Don’t know, that’s just my thoughts
    And from what I have seen over the years at the shop.
    After seeing the new core batteries,
    I’m hoping that they can release newer tools that will benefit from the core packs.

    Even better than milwaukee batteries?

    Right now, yes. Bosch use the current best compact cell type (20700 li-ion cells) instead of the more common 18650 cells. Some others are starting to use 20700 as well (dewalt’s 9.0ah Flexvolt does as do the new Festools) and Bosch is already moving to the 21700 which is (as far as I know) only being used in high end robotics and in newer Tesla products

    That gives us a good feeling that our loyalty to the brand is justified. It makes sense that battery technology goes ahead of tool development.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    CORE 2gen – 4.0ah and 8.0Ah are 21700 from various mfg

    I assume the 12ah battery will also have cells from various mfg.

    Isn’t there like only 3or4 cell manufactures? Panasonic, Samsung and LG, BYD.

    I haven’t seen this thread before – and I had no idea about the new 21700’s…that’s awesome! Do we know yet when the new higher Ah Core batteries will be available here?

    Speaking of battery tech….I saw this show on TV about a month ago, think it was on Nova or something, where they were showing how flamable and dangerous lithium can be. They also showed how some guy, all on his own initially, had developed a plastic medium for the insides of lithium batteries and guess what…..you can pierce and mash them a whole lot and no fire or explosive reaction and they still continue to work.

    That’s supposed to be the next technology, solid state battery technology, extremely safe, and super fast charge time.

    I don’t want to give any hopes, so I will just throw this stuff into the room
    In germany the new core generation should hit the market sometimes this year, actually september. I assume NA will see this 3 to 4 month later.
    Perhaps for world of concrete?

    Nice, those should be a great addition, along with the 12 ah one you mentioned here also, looking forward to hearing and seeing more about the new generation core battery packs.

    I am more anxious about the tools dedicated for these bats 😛
