DeWalt recently announced the patented FlexVolt™ Power Tool and Battery System as well as FlexVolt High Efficiency Accessories™. Here we take a look at what these new products mean for you.
Heavy-duty corded power tool applications can now be accomplished using cordless tools – without sacrificing performance. FlexVolt offers power equivalent to corded tools, more runtime than previous cordless tools, and supports the existing 20V Max* System as well as new 60V Max* and 120V Max* tools.
The 20V Max System from DeWalt features more than 100 tools and is more popular than ever in the building and construction trades. In the landscape of cordless tools, this system changes the game by expanding the capabilities of existing 20V Max tools. It also benefits fully from the launch of the new FlexVolt Battery, which provides up to four times the runtime when used with 20V Max tools.
DeWalt also has launched a new range of FlexVolt High Efficiency Accessories to maximize the runtime of the cordless FlexVolt power tools. These accessories are engineered to maximize runtime and were launched in tandem with the FlexVolt power tools. The new line is engineered to deliver more cuts or holes per charge than standard DeWalt accessories and comprise over 44 new pieces – including small and large diameter circular saw blades, reciprocating saw blades, hole saws and abrasives – all of which provide long life in tough applications.
For DeWalt, innovation means developing tools that outperform expectations, enhance convenience and improve time-to-project completion. A great alternative to corded power tools, a FlexVolt battery gives your current tools a boost and can power any tools you purchase in the future. The breadth of capabilities already offered by the system will only grow with additions to the tool lineup.
The 6.0 AH FlexVolt Battery** is the world's first battery that automatically changes voltage when you change tools. It offers the following:
- Up to 4 times the runtime when used with DeWalt 20V Max tools
- The power of corded when used with 60V or 120V tools
- Works with 20V Max, 60V Max and 120V Max (2 x 60V Max) tools
If you need even more runtime and power, look for the FlexVolt 9.0 AH Battery. It is also compatible with 20V Max, 60V Max and 120V Max (2 x 60V Max) DeWalt tools
* 20V Max - Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18. 60V Max - Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 60 volts. Nominal voltage is 54. 120V Max - Based on using 2 DeWalt 60V Max batteries, combined with having a maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) of 120 volts and a nominal voltage of 108.
**When used with 20V Max* tools.
