As tool companies vie for your hard-earned with package deals on cordless tools, battery technology is fast becoming the frontline in the fight for your dollar.
So when Metabo announced a new 4.0Ah 18v battery – in what they state is a world first for power tools – the WTW team took notice.
Metabo say the 4.0Ah is no bigger than their previous 3.0Ah model yet offers 33 per cent more capacity and a longer runtime and is compatible with the current Metabo ‘slide in’ battery powered 18v range.
The new range has intelligent battery management, patented AIR COOLED charge technology, single cell monitoring and processor-controlled charging and decharging management.
Metabo also stand behind their products with a free upgrade from a one-year warranty to a three-year warranty on both tool and battery. Simply register on www.metabo.com/xxl within four weeks of purchase to qualify.
