New power for cordless tools
Two batteries – 20 V and 40 V – that you can combine as you like with a whole lot of power tools and garden equipment. That’s Dual Power. Whatever you choose, you will always go for a quiet, powerful and easy-to-use tool. Moreover, you will also save a lot of money because you do not have to buy a new battery for every tool.
How does this battery platform exactly work?
The 20 V battery can be easily snapped onto 20 V tools. The 40 V battery goes one step further and shows the truly innovative character of Dual Power.
This is because you can slide the 40V battery both onto the 40 V and onto the 20 V tools. In the latter case, you will get a battery with a longer useful life so you can keep working much longer.
What is the difference in battery capacity?
The higher the capacity, the longer you can work with your battery. A 20V battery battery has a capacity of 1500 mAh or 2500 mAh (Samsung). The 40 V battery has a capacity of 2600 mAh if used on a 40 V tool, but delivers an impressive 5200 mAh if you combine it with a 20 V tool.
How is that possible? The 40 V battery can use its Li-ion cells both in series and in parallel. If they are connected in series (40 V battery used on a 40 V tool), the voltage of each battery cell is added up to obtain the double voltage of 40 V. In parallel connection of the Li-ion cells (40 V battery used on a 20 V tool), the result at the output is a doubling of the capacity: the capacity peaks from 2600 mAh to 5200 mAh.
A battery-powered future
The battery technology gives the do-it-yourself market a completely new dimension. The improved generation of batteries has greatly contributed to the production of lightweight cordless tools with much more power and a longer operating time.
Battery-powered tools not only have the potential to outclass tools with cords, but even to overtake petrol tools. Battery-powered tools make increasingly less noise, produce no smoke and have no carbon emissions. That is why more and more people choose battery-powered tools rather than resorting to petrol-powered options.
