When it comes to 10.8 volt tools, professionals want small but powerful tools with the longest possible runtime. Bosch is now distinguishing itself from the competition by for the first time offering professional tradespeople 2.5 Ah batteries in this class with 25 percent longer runtime. The new 2.5 Ah batteries have the longest runtime of all 10.8 volt batteries on the market. At the same time, they have the highest energy density in relation to their own weight. They are the same size as the previous 2.0 Ah batteries, and at 185 grams they weigh almost the same. This makes them the most powerful and compact batteries in their class.

Examples of the increase in runtime with 2.5 Ah
For example, a GST 10,8 V-LI Professional jigsaw equipped with a 2.5 Ah battery cuts up to 7.5 meters in 24 millimeter thick softwood. The cutting length with a 2.0 Ah battery is maximum six meters. The GSR 10,8 V-EC TE Professional cordless screwdriver drives up to 1,200 screws with dimensions of 3.5 x 35 millimeters in softwood. It is just short of 1,000 with a 2.0 Ah battery. Using 2.5 Ah batteries significantly increases the productivity of carpenters, parquet layers and other interior fitting tradespeople who prefer handy and lightweight tools with 10.8 volts for woodworking, enabling them to work for longer per battery charge and also reducing charging and set-up times. Moreover, these lightweight and compact batteries help to minimize user fatigue during continuous use. Anyone requiring even more capacity can use 10.8 volt batteries with 4.0 Ah from Bosch.
