The New Cat 18V ½-inch DX13 Brushless Hammer Drill claims the distinction of being the first portable power tool to feature a graphene battery. This state-of-the-art 18V, 5.0Ah graphene battery delivers twice the power, charges three times faster, and provides four times longer life cycles than conventional lithium-ion batteries.
“Imagine the ability to fully re-charge a 5Ah battery in 20 minutes and have twice the amount of power to tackle some of the toughest applications on the jobsite without being connected to a cord,” stated the press release. The graphene battery provides four times the amount of life cycles, which translates to 1200 charges on a single battery. The batteries come with a 5-year warranty.
All cordless tools on the Cat 18-volt platform are compatible with the 18V, 5.0Ah graphene battery. The Hammer Drill features 25 percent more power, provides 50 percent longer runtime, and adds 10 percent longer life compared to traditional brushed motors.
