18V Battery Packs and Multi-Bay Charger
Hilti introduces the B 18/5.2 Li-Ion and B 18/2.6 Li-Ion battery packs, as well as the multi-bay charger C4/36-MC4. The Hilti battery packs deliver up to 80% longer run time and are compatible with the whole Hilti 18V cordless tool range and chargers. And, the multi-bay charger charges up to 4 batteries in a smart, sequential order.
The battery packs are built with higher density cells and use smart software that monitors and controls each cell to protect it against overheating. The B18/2.6 CPC Li-Ion Battery is the highest capacity compact battery available on the market at 2.6 Ah, and the larger B18/5.2 offers an impressive 5.2 Ah capacity.
Designed to stand up under the most demanding weather conditions, the batteries have a Low Temperature Module that allows for dynamic voltage regulation at sub-zero temperatures. This feature ensures that the batteries provide the same level of power in cold-weather applications as in warmer temperatures. The electronics are sealed against moisture, dust and debris. Also, the battery housing is built using glass fiber with an outer, rubberized, soft grip for better handling and improved impact resistance.
These battery packs come with an LED state-of-charge indicator so the operator knows exactly how much power is left. And, the batteries charge up to 75% in the first 20 minutes.
The multi-bay charger is compatible with all Hilti Li-Ion batteries (12V batteries require an adapter). Designed to charge up to 4 batteries, the smart charger filters all power to the first battery placed on the charger. In 25 minutes, it can charge a battery to 80% capacity. Once the first battery is fully charged, it will then charge the remaining batteries in the order they were placed on the charger.
