P ower tool batteries vary by brand. Some of the most popular brands are DeWalt and RYOBI. Black & Decker i s also another favorite. Power tool s are built with a specific design of power usage that cause batteries to differ greatly from tool to too l, and from brand to brand. A new c utting edge lithium ion power tool battery has recently been released on the market which will make power tool batteries even more effective . The invention of cordless power t ools has made construction and othe r tasks involving power tools much easier. Specific brands have their own spec ific batteries. DeWalt Tools have a specific battery serial number for their different tools. For example , a certain DeWalt tools use an 18V whereas other will use an 9.6Volt. DeWalt battery serial numbers begi n with the letters DW followed by 4 numbers. Black&Decker has a long l ist of batteries as well, ranging i n voltage from 9.6Volt to 18Volt. R YOBI brand power tools have a much smaller list of batteries than does DeWalt or Black&Decker, and none o f these batteries can be interchang ed between brands. However, brand makers have started making batterie s interchangeable between tools so consumers can purchase a package se t of a good variety of tools, that all use the same interchangeable, r echargeable battery. For example, R YOBI has a set that includes a saw, a drill, and a flashlight that all use the same 18Volt battery. These sets usually come with two batteri es so the user will almost always h ave a charge battery in stock. Cordless power tools and power tool batteries have been improved great ly in design since they were first released. Higher voltage batteries make cordless power tools more powe rful and weigh less. This enhanced design makes power tools more user friendly, more ergonomic, and easie r to get into hard to reach spaces. Most current power tools use a NICD batteries. However, a new lithium- ion battery has recently been relea sed for Black&Decker that is said t o last ten times longer than tradit ional lo batteries. It is also said to charge to 90 percent capacity i n 5 minutes. Lithium ion batteries used for power tools are only 3rd i n demand behind laptop and cell pho ne batteries. The release of this n ew battery be very useful to users because they do not suffer from the same memory effect that is found w ith NICD batteries. Cordless power tools have changed t he way many people work. Higher vol tage allows batteries to work much better and last much longer. For th e price of power tool batteries, up wards of $50, users want to get the most for their money. The release of the new Lithium Ion batteries wi ll only further enhance cordless po wer tools.
