Lithium Ion Batteries
Black & Decker use some of the best grade Lithium Ion batteries within the DIY market. Each battery is tested for moisture ingress to ensure there is no chance of them short circuiting, as well as going through drop and vibration tests to ensure their durability. Contained within the battery pack are electronics that protect the battery against overcharging, as well preventing the battery from self discharging if it gets too hot or very cold. Black & Decker Lithium Ion batteries are designed to be ready to use when you are as there is no self discharge, they are also very light to ensure that you don‟t tire whilst completing that DIY Task.
Smaller/Lighter -- Lithium Ion batteries have a higher energy density than NiCD / NIMH batteries. This means that equivalent capacity Lithium Ion batteries are smaller and lighter than conventional NiCD / NIMH batteries. So whether you are choosing cordless garden tools, power tools or cordless home cleaning our Lithium Ion batteries will guarantee that your tool is lighter and more compact ensuring there is less chance you will suffer from fatigue.
Slow Discharge -- Lithium batteries have a very slow discharge rate compared to NiCD/Nimh batteries. After 90 days without use, a Lithium Ion battery will still retain up to 80% of its charge. This ensures that you will always be ready to complete that DIY task without having to wait for the battery to charge.
No Memory Effect -- When using NiCD/Nimh batteries it is recommended to fully discharge the battery prior to recharging them, otherwise the battery suffers from “memory effect” whereby it thinks it is fully charged when it isn’t. Lithium Ion batteries do not suffer from this, therefore can be recharged at any state of charge without the battery suffering from “memory effect”.
Cold Temperature -- Nimh batteries will not work at temperatures approaching freezing. Black and Decker Lithium Ion batteries will work at these temperatures ensuring that you are able to get the “job” done.
Environmental -- Lithium Ion batteries contain metal elements that are not as harmful to the environment compared to other battery technology. All Lithium Ion batteries can be recycled at your local recycling centre.
