Lithium Ion Batteries are Changing

It doesn’t seem like that long ago we were happy to have a 2.0 lithium ion battery. Lithium was such a better battery than ni-cad, we thought we had died and gone to heaven.

Then there was 3.0

Next came 4.0

Today we have 5.0 and a number of manufacturers are working on a 6.0

But the transportation community may have something to say as there are shipping restrictions on shipping lithium batteries over 5.0

The challenges of free enterprise!

Just how much power do we need? Or, is it that we want all we can have. Just like the computer industry, as computers get faster software keeps improving.

Cordless is the fastest growing sector of the power tool industry, with the introduction of brushless motors which deliver between 20-30% more power and in many applications rival an electric tool from a power standpoint.

Take a look at the video on the Milwaukee 7-1/4″ Circular Saw if in doubt.

Just had a visit from a major power tool company who has a prototype out for a cordless table saw.

Stay tuned as we race toward a better cordless tool
