New Lithium-ion Battery Pack from Bosch

Maximizing battery runtime on the job site means more uptime for power-critical tools like rotary hammers, drivers, saws and other power tools.The Bosch BAT622 18V Li-Ion 6.0 Ah FatPack battery promises to increase productivity by offering the power tool industry’s first 6.0 Ah battery, offering up to 45 percent more runtime over standard 4.0 Ah packs, the company says.

bosch lithium ion Bosch lithium-Ion batteriesuse a propriety heat sink housing design. CoolPack heat conductive housing is specifically designed to cool internal cell temperatures. And a cooler-running battery means extended recharge life that’s up to 100 times longer than similar packs without this design, the company says. It’s compatible with the complete line of Bosch 18V lithium-ion power tools. 

“As the worldwide leader in battery technology, Bosch continues to offer first-to-market battery solutions,” said Tim Truesdale, product manager, batteries, chargers and wireless technology, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “Bosch has increased runtime while keeping the size and weight the same from the first lithium-ion batteries launched more than seven years ago to our 6.0 Ah pack today.“

Bosch battery technology continues to work with each individual tool’s electronic monitoring system (EMS), which regulates the proper amount of voltage drawn to tackle the heavy-duty job. EMS monitors heating of the tool and battery and will shut either sysytem down if temperatures reach a range that can cause damage. This protects the entire system for a long, productive life.

 Like all Bosch 18V batteries, the BAT622 6.0 Ah includes a fuel gauge to ensure users always know their power level.
