STIHL has launched a new generation of PRO 36V batteries that not only offer higher battery capacity, but also feature a new look orange front design for increased visibility.


Designed as a direct replacement of the current versions, both the new AP 100 and AP 200 will allow for up to 25% more run time when used in conjunction with STIHL PRO Cordless tools.


Despite the increase in capacity of the new AP 100 and AP 200, both batteries remain the same weight as the current versions (AP 100 0.8kg and AP 200 1.2kg), ensuring professionals can use STIHL tools for longer whilst keeping the overall system weight to a minimum.


The AP 300 will remain at the same capacity and weight, but will feature the new design. Enhanced STIHL AP 300 batteries are expected in 2019.


As per STIHL’s existing battery range, the new generation of AP batteries can be used in the rain due to its integrated humidity cell protection and has charging level indication with four green LEDs.
