Yeah, i'm a little dissapointed in Bosch too. Just a quick google check so there maybe other brands out there but :

18v mitre saw - Milwaukee, Ryobi, Makita, Metabo
18v silicone / caulk gun - Makita, Ryobi, Milwaukee
DAB radio - Makita, DeWalt, Hitachi

And these are just the tools that I WOULD BUY !!! come on Bosch because its looking like my next tool haul will be Makita

Not to mention 18v usb charger for your phone ,12v car/van battery charger ,18v vacuum cleaner ,multi battery charger and 18v angle drill which for some reason is available from the u.s.and not the uk a had to import one luckily I have and aunt in the u.s.

and 18v frame nailer and 18v sander.
it seems to me they have wasted time developing wireless charging which is great it the workshop when you have a power point close but not much good on site..

what at I do love is the l-boxx system which is great for keeping my van and tools organised and tidy...
i still think Bosch are the best batteries around too...great run time and I've  had  no breakdowns..

I completely agree with you they need to bring more of a range out I would buy a 18v or 36v mitre saw , a dual charger , USB adapter for 18v batteries ! 
I agree bosch do make the best batteries in my opinion as well as metabo but they did try the 18v nailer but that's been took off the market cos it wasn't up to scratch .
one thing that does make me laugh is how bosch doesn't  sell a 110v charger for site use ? 
i think they should up there game a little would be nice if they kept up with other brands like Dewalt and Milwaukee as I'm sure bosch have the budget ! 
I'm not wanting to slag Bosch off as 90% of my tools are Bosch and they are my first choice but they need to take note of what people would like

Well I have a sliver of good news. We have a GAA 18V USB charger on the books for 2016. Van / 12V charging has kinda been focused on Wireless charging solutions such as the holster and L-BOXX dock.
 
The other tools you have talked about however are not something I've seen on the new product list. I’ve seen the GML 50 with Bluetooth. But not one with DAB.

There has been alot of talk of duel (18V)  batteries. For powertools. The jury is still out on that. I've also heard that if you don’t do it right ( no names ) and electronically balance the draw from the cells then it can cause significant problems. We have mastered it with our 36V Pro L&G range and was a big part of the R&D.

110V Chargers are an issue because of the UK's H&S. Demand  would only be coming from the UK and thus quite low from an overall European point of view. Don't think we haven't asked ( alot ) from them.
We know the demand is here but currently Bosch have no plans to add 110V chargers to the UK range.
 
Sorry fellas
