Dewalt has announced the Flexvolt system, which features a battery that automatically changes voltage when the user changes tools.
The battery powers a new line of brushless 60V Max and 120V Max Flexvolt tools.
The patent-pending battery technology is backwards compatible with most existing Dewalt 20V Max tools and chargers.
When used in the 20V Max tools, the battery provides up to 4x runtime, the company says.
In addition, the Flexvolt battery provides more than 3x battery power versus the Dewalt 18V NiCad.
