TOWSON, Md., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Power tools have come a long way from old corded drills in to today's Lithium Ion cordless tools. Power tool brands like DEWALT® are focused on using this advanced battery technology to its fullest potential. The latest technology from DEWALT® is called the DEWALT® FLEXVOLT™ System and it offers the power of corded with the freedom of cordless.
The DEWALT® FLEXVOLT™ System features the world's first batteries that automatically change voltage when the user changes tools. The batteries power the brand new lineup of brushless 60V MAX* and 120V MAX* FLEXVOLT™ tools including the new heavy-duty Circular Saw, Grinder, Reciprocating Saw, Stud and Joist Drill, Table Saw, and Miter Saws. But why cordless and why the DEWALT® FLEXVOLT™ System?
General contractors, professional handymen, craftsmen, and repairmen all rely on portability and power. Not only do these tradesmen need convenience, but they also will benefit from a jobsite that is not limited by the distance of the tool application to the power source. In addition, projects can be completed fast when there's no need to constantly search for power sources. This saves time and money.
DEWALT® FLEXVOLT™ Batteries are also backward compatible with most DEWALT® 20V MAX* tools and chargers. When used in DEWALT 20V MAX* tools, the 6.0Ah FLEXVOLT™ Battery provides up to 4X runtime. In addition, the FLEXVOLT™ battery provides more than 3X battery power versus DEWALT 18V NiCad.
Jason, a DEWALT® FLEXVOLT™ user from E-Quip Manufacturing who was given a 6.0Ah FLEXVOLT™ Battery to test, said, "We loved the FLEXVOLT™ battery. We used it with a Hammer Drill and didn't have to change the battery once throughout the day. Sometimes we were going through 1/2" sheet and the tool and battery held up. In a manufacturing plant where there isn't always a place to charge a battery, it really speeds up production."
The construction industry is evolving and the DEWALT® FLEXVOLT™ System is part of the revolution.
