Bosch Core 18v battery

Bosch announced the Core 18V battery which it says offers power and performance and minimizes weight.

“The battery employs advanced Lithium-ion technology to deliver 80 percent more power than previous generation Bosch batteries,” the company said in a news release.

The cells of the battery are laser-welded and rail-connected, the company says, to allow for high efficiency. This allows the battery “to deliver better performance than competitive batteries that have up to 24 per cent more weight and are up to 35 per cent larger.”

The battery “offers optimized cell technology and an improved power connector within the 10 high-density cells that ensure lower internal resistance. That means higher currents can be drawn from the cells over a longer period of time,” Bosch said.

The battery improves upon previous generation options with longer run time, it said.

“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 Core 18V is 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.”
