What is the difference between the battery packs?
Batteries with lithium ion chemistry have four advantages over other power tool batteries:
What is the difference between lithium ion batteries and others?
- High power density – lithium ion battery cells have both high power and light weight
- No fade – lithium ion batteries deliver constant power throughout the pack discharge
- No memory effect – charge maintenance and full discharge are not necessary to retain consistent capacity throughout battery pack lifetime
- PowerNow Lithium Ion Batteries stay charged for months when left off the charger
