Offically no. But those with the Bosch heated jacket may have been using their GAA 10.8 V to charge things via the USB port.

Thanks Bob but I was thinking of modifying my GLI VariLED to charge my iPhone and light up my work area, it probably won't be pretty but it should work.

How do you propose to do this ? I must say that having something thats more than just a usb charger but has a primary function also sounds like something that Bosch should just get on and make and stay ahead of the competition, you know like a site DAB radio with usb that can charge batteries or run of one, come on Bosch your loosing market to other manufacturers here !

I have to agree with you on some of that as I talking to you with a UK prospective. I've been discussing many of these points with the product managers. While I probably understand more of the complexities in why it isn't as simple as just sticking something on to a tool ( Excellent German over engineering plays a factor ) I would agree that there is a real demand. And we have a reputation as a innovator to keep up.
