Introducing the Hilti 18 V Battery Packs and Multi-Bay Charger

Plano, TX. – Hilti extends the productivity of its cordless tool line with the introduction of the B 18/5.2 Li-Ion and B 18/2.6 Li-Ion battery packs, as well as the Multi-bay charger C4/36-MC4. The new Hilti battery packs deliver up to 80 percent longer run time and are compatible with the whole Hilti 18 V cordless tool range and chargers. And, the new Hilti multi-bay charger provides a more convenient and efficient solution on the job, charging up to four batteries in sequential order.

B18/5.2 Li-Ion and B 18/2.6 Li-Ion Battery Packs
The new Hilti B 18/5.2 Li-Ion and B 18/2.6 Li-Ion battery packs are built with higher density cells and use smart software that monitors and controls each cell to protect it against overheating and provide optimal performance and charging. The B18/2.6 CPC Li-Ion Battery is the highest capacity compact battery available on the market at 2.6 Ah, and the larger B18/5.2 offers 5.2 Ah capacity. These batteries’ higher and more reliable output allows Hilti tools to handle larger loads, while ensuring the power delivered in each trigger pull is always consistent.

Designed to stand up under the most demanding weather conditions, the batteries have a Low Temperature Module that allows for dynamic voltage regulation at sub-zero temperatures. This feature ensures that the batteries provide the same level of power in cold-weather applications as in warmer temperatures. The electronics are sealed against moisture, dust and debris. Also, the battery housing is built using glass fiber with an outer, rubberized, soft grip for better handling and improved impact resistance.

As with other Hilti batteries, these new battery packs come with an LED state-of-charge indicator so the operator knows exactly how much power is left. And, the batteries charge quickly — up to 75 percent in the first 20 minutes.

Hilti B18/5.2 Li-Ion batteries and B18/2.6 Li-Ion batteries are backed by a two-year wear and tear warranty.

Multi-bay Charger C4-MC4 (120V)
The new Hilti Multi-bay charger C4/36-MC is compatible with all Hilti Li-Ion batteries (12V batteries require an adapter) and will keep contractors productive all day long. Designed to charge up to four batteries, the charger filters all power to the first battery placed on the charger. In just 25 minutes, it can charge a battery to 80 percent capacity. Once the first battery is fully charged, it will then charge the remaining batteries in the order they were placed on the charger.

The multi-bay charger helps provide a safer jobsite for workers by eliminating power strips and cords needed for multiple chargers.
