DEWALT has launched its new 20V MAX* Premium XR Lithium Ion Battery Packs, available in 2.0 Ah (DCB203) and 4.0 ah (DCB204). These new battery packs provide 33% longer runtime than standard DEWALT 20V MAX* battery packs. The DCB203 and DCB204 are compatible with the entire line of DEWALT 20V MAX* tools.
“Professionals need a battery for their power tools that can work as long as they do on the jobsite,” said Product Manager Ward Smith, DEWALT. “The new 2.0 and 4.0 Ah batteries offer best in class runtime and improved cold weather performance, and are fully compatible with all 20V MAX* tools.”
DEWALT’s Premium XR Lithium Ion batteries pack maximum runtime in a lightweight design, weighing only 1.34 pounds (DCB204). Touting a 3-LED Fuel Gauge System, the batteries allow immediate feedback on the state of charge. Furthermore, there is no memory effect and virtually no self-discharge, resulting in less downtime.
The 2.0 Ah battery will be included in all DEWALT compact brushless tool kits, including combo kits, and the 4.0 Ah battery will be included in all DEWALT premium individual brushless tool kits.
The new Premium XR Lithium Ion batteries are expected to retail for $109.00 (DCB203), $129.00 (DCB204), $149.00 (DCB203-2), and $199.00 (DCB204-2) and are available now anywhere DEWALT products are sold. The 2.0 and 4.0 Ah battery packs come with a 90-day money-back guarantee and a two- and three-year free service contract, respectively.
* Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.
