Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) June 14, 2012
Metabo introduced new lithium-ion batteries designed to run 33% longer with an increased lifespan of 33% compared to traditional rechargeable batteries. ToolSelect members, always interested in the latest lithium-ion tools, are comparing and contrasting these batteries with all others in the industry.
Metabo’s new Ultra-M 4.0 Ah batteries are included with the purchase of many tools, such as the W18 LTX 4 ½” angle grinder, SB18 LTX ½” hammer drill and BS18 LTX drill/driver. Metabo’s three-year, full-replacement warranty covers the new batteries.
“Online tool reviews from our members often reference the batteries when applicable, and that’s already the case with these Metabo tools,” says Tom Klein, vice president of marketing and merchandising with ToolSelect. “It’s fun to see the Li-ion technology continue to grow, and any time a company like Metabo releases a new and improved battery, our community jumps at the chance to talk about it.”
The new batteries use Metabo’s patented air-cooled charging technology designed to cool the pack through guided air-flow ducting during charging. With the Electronic Single-Cell Protection monitoring system, individual cells are monitored during charging and discharging to prevent damage and increase the life of the batteries.
Because batteries are vitally important to cordless tools, the online tool reviews from ToolSelect members often put a large focus on batteries. As more manufacturers continuously improve their battery technologies, the community’s discussions get livelier.
