Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Battery Reviews & Chargers

Our charger and battery reviews for cordless tools evaluate battery packs, battery chargers, and other technologies and accessories. We tackle cordless batteries, chargers, and accessories for everything from 3.6V to 120V systems. A few years ago we would have said from 3.6V to 36V. Recently, however, advances in outdoor power equipment have yielded battery packs with much higher voltages. Add new products like DeWalt FlexVolt technology, and you can see there is a lot of room for adept battery reviews. Even the new Milwaukee 9.0 Ah High Demand battery shook up the market with power reserves never before seen in cordless power tools. Chargers and Battery Reviews for Tradesmen For the average tradesmen, they want a battery that will last. A lot of times that goes along with the tool being used. Other times, however, a superior battery platform can also bring the best out of a cordless tool. Better batteries bring longer run-times and more power (thanks to higher power densities in lithium-ion batteries). When new battery technology and products come out, we let you know with our battery reviews and break down the facts.
