Powerful battery delivers twice the power and runtime of standard 4.0 Ah batteries

Bosch GBA18V80 CORE18V Performance 18V Lithium-Ion 8.0 Ah Battery Upgrading your jobsite and doubling productivity just got easier with a battery that delivers on the promise of increased power. The Bosch GBA18V80 CORE18V Performance 18V Lithium-Ion 8.0 Ah Battery uses the latest high-power 21700 cells to deliver twice the power and runtime of standard batteries.

The 8.0 Ah CORE18V Performance Battery provides high-capacity power and outstanding power-to-weight ratio at a practical 2.14 Lbs. Thanks to cutting-edge engineering, this battery features advanced cell technology  that delivers great power with lower internal resistance. Instead of the 15 cells packed into much larger batteries, the CORE18V Performance Battery houses just 10 cells to deliver significantly more power in a lighter, more compact package.

The 21700 cell provides 11 percent more power and 27%  more runtime with the same number of cells as an 18V 6.3 Ah battery. This innovation enables the battery to efficiently transfer more power to the tool, which improves performance. It’s designed to deliver the power and battery efficiency required by high-capacity tools.

“We designed the 18V 8.0 Ah CORE18V Performance Battery for high-capacity power tools, such as reciprocating saws, circular saws and rotary hammers that require high power for the most demanding applications,” said Theron Sherrod, product manager, Bosch Power Tools. “The high-performance battery allows trade pros to use their most powerful tools on the jobsite for longer periods of time.”

The GBA18V80 battery also features design elements that keep the battery cool. Heat is the natural enemy of batteries; Bosch engineered the exclusive CoolPack 2.0 technology to manage the heat of the higher power-density cells. It provides better cooling than the previous-generation CoolPack system, extending battery lifetime by 35%. Improvements in the design transfer more heat to the Performance Battery’s outer surface where it’s forced away from the battery.

Advanced sensors deliver better in-pipe images while reporting the pitch of the camera in-pipe

Experience the first true data-enabled plumbing diagnostic cameras with the new line of RIDGID SeeSnake cameras powered by TruSense technology. TruSense establishes a two-way datalink path between the camera head and a connected RIDGID SeeSnake CSx series Wi-Fi enabled monitor. With TruSense, advanced sensors on the camera head convey valuable information about the in- pipe environment.

RIDGID SeeSnake Cameras with TruSenseSeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology include a high dynamic range (HDR) image sensor that takes the next leap forward in diagnostic imaging. A common challenge faced by diagnostic professionals is being able to see far down the pipe as well as the image just in front of the camera’s lights. An HDR image sensor expands the camera’s dynamic range, allowing a greater ratio of bright and dark areas to be displayed in the same image at the same time without reducing visibility. This means fewer blown-out areas and sections of the pipe that are too dark to see, offering superior clarity and detail.

TiltSense is an on-camera inclinometer that is included on SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology. The inclinometer measures the camera’s angle. When connected to a SeeSnake CSx series monitor, the camera can convey the camera’s degree of tilt on the monitor display—giving you a useful indicator of the pitch of the camera in-pipe.

RIDGID SeeSnake Cameras with TruSense Technology“RIDGID SeeSnake cameras are trusted for having the clearest in-pipe picture along with features that help our customers work smarter and faster,” said Tim Dunphy, RIDGID Marketing Director of Underground Technologies. “With TruSense technology, HDR sensors and TiltSense deliver the image quality and information contractors need to see.”

SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology are available in self-leveling models, which keeps the image upright, and non self-leveling models. All RIDGID SeeSnake cameras come with the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty.
