Bosh Professional – 18 V to power more than what you’d think

An interesting development in the world of power tools this week. Bosch Power Tools has announced it has opened its 18v battery platform for other professional brands. This makes it easier for trades to interchange the 18V batteries between tools.

To date, users worldwide have already purchased more than 60 million professional 18 V lithium-ion batteries bearing the Bosch name. Together with the partners, Bosch is driving forward the cordless construction site of the future.

What does this mean to the tradesman?

Imagine having one common battery platform for your tools, so you do not have to have multiple chargers. Or multiple different types of battery available for multiple devices. Whilst we know our trades readers are more organised and capable of administering the power needed by their device. With the Bosch Professional Battery ecosystem, offering up to 180 professional standard tools. You are now in a better place to work more efficiently.

The ability to look after all your devices with one battery platform is useful. But not refreshing. As this is achieved by similar manufacturers.

That said as the press release goes on to quote. To date, users worldwide have already purchased more than 60 million professional 18 V lithium batteries bearing the Bosch name.

Partners and users lay their trust in the Bosch brand

The cross-brand battery system is based on cordless technology from Bosch. “The Professional 18V system offers our users enormous added value, for example through the fastest charging time in the market. In combination with our high performance LED work lights, it was clear to us that only a cooperation with the technology leader would be possible,” said Ralf Nickles from Brennenstuhl. Roman Thönig from Sulzer emphasized the flexibility and versatility of the system: “The Professional 18V System contains already more than 180 tools ‒ and we are an important part of it. We enrich the system with a full range of one- and two-component cordless dispensers for both the Cox and Mk brands.” Tim Lumme from Klauke relies on strength in the system. “Many of our customers own Bosch tools. With our new Orange Line, we are offering these customers unique battery-hydraulic safety tools with triple insulation that are powered by Bosch batteries.

This creates high value-added.” Bosch itself is extending the cordless segment by 100 tools up until 2022 ‒ launching more cordless tools than ever before on the market within two years. The share of cordless power tools will rise from 60 to 80 percent within the next three years. “We believe in the innovative strength of Bosch and invest in a system that is safe and state-of-the-art ‒ not only today, but also in the future,” said Thomas Willing from Ledlenser. “Our contribution is the high-performance searchlight XP30R, which combines maximum light output and reach with good portability.”

The consistent compatibility since 2008 is another advantage of the system. “This compatibility ensures maximum freedom and simplicity. We could not make a better promise to our customers,” said Artur Temnicki from Lena Lighting. “Our new compact LED projector Magnum Future Led XS offers tradespeople many useful functions and ensures effective and energy-saving light for all work areas.” Quality and robustness are just as important in the professional environment. Christian Wöhner from Sonlux: “The batteries from Bosch are very robust and designed for the tough requirements on the construction site ‒ as is our new LED work light Gladiator SL I Akku.

It extends our Gladiator SL family and is an all-round solution for light security on the construction site.” Availability and flexibility are key factors for Thomas Jeltsch from the coating specialist Wagner. “Just like Bosch, we are operating all over the world and want to give our customers access to the latest battery technology. We are convinced that cordless tools offer our users a maximum level of flexibility that they don’t want to miss in future.”

To date, users worldwide have already purchased more than 60 million professional 18 V lithium-ion batteries bearing the Bosch name. Together with the partners, Bosch is driving forward the cordless construction site of the future.
