    There’s a chance we might see a 12V+18V+USB (3 amp) charger. But that’s NAINA as of now. From what I read that charger is serial however, it charges one then the other, not simutaneously.

    Not sure what I’m hoping for. More Euro tools hittin our shores is always something. But what? Drives me a bit nuts frankly.

    The 18V Starlock caught my eye. Waiting for that one to come out for sure.

    @bethepro any chance we will see the new bandsaw on the list? Will they be looking for testers for this one? That’s a tool that I’ve been waiting for Bosch to release for a while now. I’d love to see how it compares to the Milwaukee.

    @kswiss,
    The bandsaw does look nice, especially the 4 3/4″ cut capacity.

    Hoping that Eneracer battery we see in Europe heads this way to na this year!

    Yes same here Chris, looking forward to getting one and giving it a try.

    Speaking of the enracer battery, does anyone know if it fits into the present exact fit trays, while on the tools, or even in the battery spot? Just curious, I know it is slightly larger than the present 6 ah

    Maybe @madman_us Alex knows.

    I am not 100% sure about that Brian. The new EneRacer is a little bit longer, slightly wider, and taller than a 4/6ah battery.

    I definitely get one or two of the EneRacer.

    Great, did you order them already?
    Looking forward to hearing what you think about them, they supposed to have more power and runtime, I wonder how they will compare to the Milwaukee 9.0 ah and the Dewalt 60 volt?

    Here the Multi-Bay, Multi-Volt and USB fast-charger. (from Germany, hopefully NA soon too)
    It also includes a wall mount.

    and here the USB-Batteryadapter/charger (also Germany) looks like I’ll be ordering some stuff this year from Germany haha.

    That’s really nice Alex, nice find! thanks
    For sure it will be a great addition to our arsenal lol.
    It is noticeable that Bosch is out of the “tool release fight”… I mean, they are not like red and yellow team, releasing tools every month and competing…we can see quality here.
    Fingers crossed for a 18v fullsize blower.

    i have a love hate with teh dual compatibility charger.. it can help eliminate having to produce 2 different chargers.. as milwaukee has had theirs for a little while now with the fuel line. i just dont like how they arent simoultanious. if your gonna have 2 batteries on a charger they should both charge not sequentially.

    teh battery pod is good to see though so it gives more diversity to a battery pack allowing charging of phones, tablets or even a lap top

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    Great find, that would be awesome if it came to NA

    @jkirk I agree, simultaneous charging would be way better.

    Looks like Bosch is listening. I remember last year I said I wanted a dual charger and the ability to hang on the wall. I will be getting a few of those chargers.

    I have been thinking about the whole BT tool thing and Bosch’s move to get on board. I like it and I don’t. I have DeWalt tools that are 25 years old and work perfectly. As the NiCad batteries die I upgrade to their LI batteries because they are backwards compatible. Will the BT stuff last a long time? I mean the more features you pack in it is just more stuff to wear out and break. Some of the features are nice but not absolutely must have. I’d like the new 18V cordless grinder but may hold off because of the BT until I really need it. If I was buying new tools every 12-18 months because they wear out then fine but …. I’m just not sold yet. Read about a new toaster introduced at the CES with BT. Now you can adjust how brown your toast comes out right from your smart phone when it is just too much bother to walk across the kitchen and turn the knob.
