High Tech batteries form the core of Festool's expanding range of cordless saws, drills, and lights. Festool has switched fully to Lithium Ion Batteries because they provide more power for their size and weight. As an added benefit, Li-Ion batteries have no memory
and do not need to be fully cycled.
