Stihl AP 500 S Battery Provides More Power And Longer Service Life
While Stihl is a brand that still embraces gas power, it’s no surprise that it also offers options for battery power, especially since some states are proposing to ban gas-powered equipment. The release of the AP 300 S battery updated their initial battery formula, and now the Stihl AP 500 S Pouch Cell Battery provides even further advancement. We wanted to take a look at this new battery to see what improvements it brings to the table.

Starting off with performance, this 36V battery has a capacity of 9.4Ah. Stihl says it provides double the service life and charging cycles of the AP 300 S thanks to its power laminate technology, giving users up to a 2500-cycle life. The AP 500 S battery also features 40% more power output and 20% more capacity than the AP 300 S.
Stihl AP 500 S Pouch Cell Battery Design Notes
- Lightweight and balanced
- 4.2 lbs
- Robust, weatherproof design
- Compatible with most Stihl AP-System tools
- Compatible with Stihl Connected fleet management system
The Stihl AP 500 S battery is slightly heavier than its predecessor, weighing 4.2 pounds compared to the AP 300 S’s 3.96 pounds. It’s natural that a battery that provides more power and a higher capacity will have a bit more heft to it, so this small step-up in weight is nothing to turn up your nose at.
Plus, you can use this battery in any weather, thanks to its robust, weatherproof design.
The AP 500 S is compatible with almost all Stihl AP-System power tools and equipment, as well as the Stihl Connected smart fleet management system.
