More power than ever before, in an especially compact size: Bosch Professional is bringing a new dimension to the use of cordless tools with the ProCore 18V 7.0 Ah high-performance battery. The ProCore 18V 7.0 Ah offers approximately 90 percent more power than the previous 18 volt 6.0 Ah battery, improving efficiency.
Two examples are
- When drilling with a 32 millimetre-diameter spade bit in softwood, the GSB 18V-85 C Professional cordless combi drill produces 50 percent more holes per battery charge when fitted with the ProCore 18V 7.0 Ah instead of the previous 18 volt 6.0 Ah battery.
- On the GBH 18V-26 F Professional cordless rotary hammer, the high-performance battery even achieves a 75 percent increase in drilling depth at a diameter of 25 millimetres in C30/37 concrete.
This significant power increase is thanks to an improved cell design and measures taken to minimise internal resistances. At the same time, the ProCore 18V 7.0 Ah is impressively compact, with approximately 30 percent smaller dimensions than comparable high-performance batteries. These qualities mean it offers the highest energy density in its class.
Optimised performance and battery life thanks to CoolPack technology
Bosch has optimised its proven CoolPack technology even further, meaning that this high-performance battery can handle higher power demand over a longer period. This quality places the ProCore 18V 7.0 Ah miles ahead of comparable rival models.
Overall, the CoolPack technology also helps to substantially prolong the battery's lifetime compared to a conventional battery. Heat dissipation from the inside out is maximised in this technology by the synergy between several components; the housing and the heat sinks in the interior, which completely encases each individual cell, are manufactured from high-density polyethylene. Both the material and the special design, aimed at maximising the surface area, facilitate better heat dissipation.
In addition, the battery is designed without any internal spacing, which ensures the heat it produces is not caught in the interior. Improved cell connectors made from copper provides lower resistances and more power as a result. The battery pack has special openings for heat dissipation during the charging process as well. This cooling feature means that the battery can be charged very quickly. The five-level LED display allows tradespeople to keep the charge level of the ProCore 18V 7.0 Ah under control at all times.
Fully compatible with the existing 18 volt range
The ProCore 18V 7.0 Ah battery is part of the "Flexible Power System" from Bosch. The advantage of this system? Tradespeople who buy a battery from Bosch can use it immediately without having to worry about whether it is compatible. The "Flexible Power System" guarantees compatibility with all new and existing professional power tools and chargers within the same voltage class. That means greater productivity for professionals in everyday working situations.
The ProCore 18V 7.0 Ah high-performance battery is now available at the recommended retail price of £181.54 from specialist retailers. This is the recommended retail price excluding VAT and is subject to change.
