Why does voltage matter on a battery?

The voltages can range from 7 to 28 volts, the higher the voltage the more powerful the tool. The voltage can help you find the battery that is best suited for the work that you are doing. Depending on how long you are working the voltage will give you a good idea of the batteries running time.

What are Batteries and Chargers?

Rechargeable batteries are generally used for power tools to make them more portable and not require an electrical outlet during use. A charger is used to keep the rechargeable battery charged when it runs out of power. The chargers can either plug into an outlet or they have portable power cells that can charge for up to one hour. Our selection includes rechargeable batteries from brands such as:

  • DeWalt
  • Milwaukee
  • Makita and more

It is recommended that you charge at least two batteries before you start a big project so that you want have to wait for one battery to recharge and pause in the middle of your project.
