Metabo 8.0 Ah and 4.0 Ah Slim Pack Battery Systems

Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade cordless and corded hand-held power tools and accessories, is pleased to introduce its 8.0 Amp hour (Ah) and 4.0 Ah slim battery pack with Lithium High-Density (LiHD) Battery Technology.

"The market introduction of our LiHD battery pack technology was a major breakthrough in 2015; with our latest battery packs we went a step further", said Horst W. Garbrecht, Metabo Germany’s CEO. "We wanted to show professional users that they can depend on Metabo for a system that has influenced the development of battery pack technology from the beginning and continues to do so.”

In 2013, Metabo revolutionized the industry with the World’s First 18V 4.0 Ah full size battery pack. This year in May, Metabo is doing it again with the World’s First compact 4.0 Ah. The newly designed battery packs, built on Metabo’s Ultra-M Technology have significantly more performance and capacity compared to the previous generation – at the same size. The 8.0 Ah battery is even better suited for cordless tools with higher power requirements, like small angle grinders, saws, large rotary hammers and the 9” large angle grinder.

And the 4.0 Ah compact battery pack is the same size as our initial LiHD 3.1 Ah compact (introduced in 2015) with a compact and lightweight design, perfect for drilling or screw driving applications. The 4.0 Ah slim battery pack is about 2 1⁄4 pounds less than a double row, full size 4.0 Ah Li-ion battery pack, increasing ease of use and decreasing worker fatigue.

In order to deliver increased runtime and power, Metabo is excited to be the first on the market to introduce the newest 21.700 cells. They are slightly larger than the previous generation of LiHD cells, yet the battery pack size remains the same. This allows for even larger cell capacity while delivering higher currents to the tool, thus
allowing true industrial grade performance.

New features of these battery packs include: improved positioning of the fuel gauge, now located at the front, for better visibility. The battery packs have a rubber bottom to help prevent sliding on surfaces while protecting work surfaces and the case against shocks. The battery’s upgraded seals help protect the batteries from metal and wood dust, increasing the batteries life. As always, Metabo batteries are fully compatible with all of Metabo’s past, present and future 18V Ultra-M systems.

The Ultra-M technology was designed specifically for industrial users, whose applications typically demand more power and longer run times. The key behind the system is a microchip in the battery that effectively communicates with the tool and battery charger. This ongoing communication ensures that each battery cell is evenly charged and discharged every single time, thus greatly extending the life of the battery as well as protecting the tools being used.

Productivity is also greatly increased as a hot “spent” battery can be placed in the charger immediately after disconnecting from the tool. The charger’s built-in fan system quickly cools the battery pack as it begins the charging cycle, thus reducing overall charging time. The result is a battery that will effectively survive more charge/discharge cycles than other battery systems. Metabo offers an unconditional 3-year guarantee on their battery and charging system. The warranty applies regardless the number of charging cycles.

To fully utilize the power of this new longer running battery, Metabo features the industry’s largest range of cordless specialty metaltools in the industry. This includes many unique tools such as several problem-solving grinders, the industry’s only automatic tapping tool, a metal high speed drill as well as a complete line of fabrication and finishing tools.
