Metabo Corp. has introduced new lithium-ion batteries that run 33-percent longer and have an increased lifespan of 33-percent over traditional rechargeable batteries. The Ultra-M 4.0 Ah batteries come with a variety of Metabo’s cordless power tools, including the W18 LTX 4 1/2-inch angle grinder and the SB18 LTX 1/2-inc hammer drill.
As with all lithium-ion batteries, the Ultra-M 4.0 Ah does not have a memory effect. It can be charged at the user’s convenience without having to wait for the battery to totally discharge and does not lose any of its charging capability.
These lightweight, compact batteries feature Metabo’s patented air-cooled charging technology that cools the battery pack to a level temperature during charging using guided air flow ducting.
This unique charging technology increases productivity by shortening the charging process and helps sustain the life of the battery by keeping individual cells cooler during the charging process.
The Ultra-she Ultra batteries, the Ultra M 4.0 Ah batteries feature Metabo’s cell monitoring system, Electronic Single Cell Protection (ESCP), which electronically monitors the individual cells during the charging and discharging process to prevent damage as well as to prolong battery life. The batteries and charger are covered by Metabo’s three-year warranty.
