Bosch claims that this cell expertise brings all the functionality of the unique CORE 6.3 Ah battery, however in a smaller bundle. Nevertheless anticipate about 36% much less runtime than the 6.3ah Core battery since 4.0 ah is lower than 6.3 ah by way of runtime capability, since it’s a smaller fuel tank.

To be trustworthy, it’s too little too late. I lately converted to Milwaukee Gasoline instruments and have been usually impressed with how the little M12 instruments usually outperform Bosch’s 18v instruments.
I can’t wait to purchase their new multi-material cutter (child angle grinder) as quickly as it’s obtainable. I had been ready for the Bosch NAINA model however I anticipate the Milwaukee model to be obtainable first and outperform the Bosch.
