Lithium Ion Battery technology
- 18 volt
- Weighs over 50% lighter than an average NiCd battery
- Lasts longer between charges than leading NiCd and NiMH technologies
Hitachi Li-Ion batteries hold their charge for longer, which means there is no discernible loss of performance throughout the battery charge. The user should be aware that the machine may cut out when the battery needs recharging. This is not a battery fault; the new technology protects the battery cell, giving extended charging cycles when compared to previous battery technology.
