Our Kobalt Tool reviews focus on the newer 24V Max tools which perform much better than the older models. Ever since the new line of Kobalt power tools hit Lowe’s, the brand has gained significant capabilities. Starting with the Kobalt 24V brushless circular saw, all the new Kobalt brushless tools have shown impressive performance.
Driving the Kobalt tools are the new Kobalt 24V Max batteries. Lowe’s has these batteries priced ridiculously low—making them a great value. These batteries allow tools like the Kobalt 24V brushless reciprocating saw to keep up with the big dogs.
Kobalt Tool Reviews Reveal an Extra Battery Cell
Our Kobalt tool reviews also showed that the new 24V batteries feature an extra cell over 18V/20V tools. Instead of using a series of five 19650 cells, Kobalt tools use six. That 24V battery pack is no joke—it actually packs a punch. The only other company to do this is Hilti with their 22V packs.
