Multi-Brand Battery Alliance
Bosch Power Tools, with founding partners FEIN and Rothenberger, announce the launch of AMPShare – Powered by Bosch now available in the United States and Canada. This global multi-brand battery alliance offers trade professionals the best and widest reaching 18V power system that’s compatible across brands, applications and even countries. In addition to the founding partners, 12 additional brands join the alliance with products launching in 2023 and/or 2024: HONSEL, Ledlenser, Mato, Medmix Cox and MK, Orgapack and Signode, PerfectPro, Steinel, Bosch Rexroth Corp, Titan and Wagner.
The AMPShare battery is the current Bosch 18V battery, but the physical batteries have been updated to include the AMPShare branding. Alliance member brands are adopting this battery platform for selected tools, thus increasing the platform’s compatibility by allowing professionals to use the same 18V battery platform with additional cordless tools.
Current Bosch Power Tools batteries and AMPShare alliance products are compatible with the AMPShare battery, as well as future Bosch Power Tools products launched in 2023 and beyond. FEIN users will be able to use the AMPShare battery system on MultiMaster 500 and 700 oscillating multitools to start, with additional tools in various categories coming soon. Rothenberger will offer AMPShare compatibility on select battery-powered products including its press tool, bending tool and vacuum pump in 2024.
