Do we know if this has been fixed yet by Bosch ? 

I have just just bought the new one.

Ryan. Bosch won't acknowledge there is a problem, that is how they deal with faults. There are many posts on here about tool faults. If Bob bothers to answer it will always be 'we haven't heared about it' the battery ruining on GOP was first on here in 2013 3 years later Bob was still saying  'we haven't heared about it'

Lads I wouldn't bother with Bosch. I even buy the copy battery. Just the same as the Bosch. I continue using them until they die altogether.Just use the bosch for up scaffolding and stuff. Dont care if i drop them they shit. Multi tool wears the battery compartment. Clutch keeps slipping on metal which compo. Reverse switch on my impact is temperamental. Circular saw is average I got a Milwaukee set now instead. Better kit

I tried it with an Eneracer Battery at the weekend and had a look at the fit, it seemed tight and couldn't see any obvious movement.

The Battery was hard to get off though even with a standard 4ah.

Yes the cheap battery seems to have a better fit than Bosch own battery

I would never use non-genuine batteries.

i remember reading something years ago about either Makita or someone being able to tell if a non-genuine battery had been used on a tool.

Don’t get me wrong, I would imagine some of the aftermarket batteries are actually ok but I still wouldn’t use them.

My work mate only turned to the artermarket batteries as his multitool had broke his genuine batteries and he didn’t want to damage any more genuine ones
