    Bosch is in so many markets all with different electrical specs 110V, 220V, 50 cycles, 60 cycles, European codes, US Codes, Canadian Codes designing a simple charger becomes a nightmare. A multi-charger would be nice, a charger that could charge both 12V & 18V batteries would be nice also.

    I have 6 12volt batteries, 2- 2.0ah and 2- 4.0ah and 2- 3.0ah.

    That’s a good mix in amp hour batteries .

    This has been one the things keeping me from buying into the 12v line. I just don’t want yet another “single use” charger.

    It didn’t want it either but it’s not that bad. I just have too many uses for the 12volt to not have them.

    After having both of these, and now both with rapid charging, I would not do without them, as a contractor. One could really get away with a lot less batteries, if one brought the 6-bay rapid charger along with them. I don’t, but only because I have a crazy amount of batteries. I can be on the cordless tools all week long and still not even think about charging a battery.

    I hear you.. it’s probably just a mater of time before I get some.. but a multi-charger would sure be nice.

    Like Dirty says it’s not that bad, plus the 12V line is darn useful an extra charger is worth it.

    hopefully the wireless charging will negate having extra chargers and just have all of them charge as the unit isn’t in use.

    Good place to be Sparky. I am about in the same position except when i use my cordless polisher. That really eats up the batteries faster than I can charge them.

    Yeah, I bet it does. I have the Fuel angle grinder, and it really goes through them too, but I never use it for more than a quick cut. The vacuum sucks the juice down too.

    I can get by with my Fuel grinder on two batteries usually unless I’m using to very heavily. It’s so nice not dragging a cord around with you!

    How many of you guys buy tool kits just for the batteries. I’ve done it a few times on deal days .

    Always willing to learn .

    Can’t say I have ever done that. Rather I have waited for deals with a free extra battery on a tool I do need. And, BethePro has made it easy to get extra Bosch batteries. 🙂

    I have never purchased a battery outside of a kit. Well, other than the time that I found M18 4.0 battery / charger starter sets at 75% off. Most tradesmen I know do the same, the math is easy. Like Lon, I try to wait until there’s a free extra battery deal.

    Sometimes you come across a drill combo cheaper then buying one or two batteries .

    That is actually a good idea if you break it down.

    lol i haven’t found any deals in canada that would make it worth my while. lately everything that seems like a deal isn’t, for months lowes has had bosch stuff on sale and they have stayed on the shelves and not very many people are picking those ones up.
