Lithium-ion technology

Lithium-ion technology was used for the first time in power tools in 2003: The IXO from Bosch was the world’s first power tool with lithium-ion batteries. The advantages of the new battery technology in comparison to conventional technologies are as follows:

  • No self-discharge of the batteries over time, meaning that they are ready for use at any time
  • No memory effect (i.e. recharging a battery when it is not fully discharged does not lead to loss in capacity)
  • Very small battery cells (i.e. the tools are smaller, more compact and handier)
  • More environmentally friendly
