New Metabo LiHD Batteries to Offer Even Higher Performance

Metabo USA LiHD battery technology debuted alongside a pair of cordless angle grinders. The pairing of Metabo LiHD batteries with cordless grinders should be the talk of professionals in the metalworking arena. It’s a great match since the new battery packs use advanced 21700 cell technology to provide more powerful output.

What is Metabo LiHD Battery Technology?

Metabo LiHD (Lithium High-Density) batteries increase the power, run time, and life of the pack. The result is a battery platform that’s a step up for demanding industrial applications. The new Metabo LiHD batteries are boasting up to 67% more power than traditional 18V Li-ion cells. Metabo also claims that run time is extended by 87% and the life of the battery doubles. This is a huge step forward that can be attributed to cell and pack design.

“Metabo LiHD batteries offer such high performance claims thanks to an increase in lithium density, reduced resistance, and increased current in each cell. Metabo also designed the pack in a way that minimizes heat loss and lets it run their tools at levels where others will typically shut down to prevent damage.”
