New Metabo LiHD Batteries to Offer Even Higher Performance

Metabo USA has a big announcement about their battery technology along with a pair of cordless angle grinders. The pairing of Metabo LiHD batteries with the cordless grinders will be the talk of professionals in the metalworking arena this fall.

Metabo’s 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.

“The new Metabo LiHD batteries are offering 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 will minimize heat loss and allow it to run their tools at levels where others will typically shut down to prevent damage.”

New Metabo LiHD Batteries

  • 3.1 Ah LiHD Compact: Significantly smaller and lighter but provides run-time similar to most standard full-size 18V battery packs
  • 5.5 Ah LiHD: Extreme power output, run-time and performance for the largest range of applications
  • 6.2 Ah LiHD: Ultimate professional battery for most demanding applications

These three Metabo LiHD batteries are based on Metabo’s Ultra-M technology. For Metabo users, these battery packs are 100% compatible with all Metabo 18V cordless tools and chargers.

New Metabo 18V Angle Grinders Benefit From Second Generation Brushless Motors and Braking System

The two new grinders feature a second generation brushless motor. An electronic brake system stops the wheel in 2 seconds or less. The tool also has an electronic safety clutch system feature which is designed to reduce the risk of grinder kick back. The power grinders come with Metabo’s new Quick Nut for an easy, tool-free wheel change.
