Bosch has released a new 18V battery technology that looks promising in terms of extending battery life, increasing power, and decreasing weight. This seems like a good progression forward for battery tech.

The Bosch CORE18V Battery offers maximum power and performance while minimizing weight, an achievement that proves its claim as the best-built battery among leading competitors. The battery employs advanced Lithium-ion technology to deliver 80 percent more power than previous generation Bosch batteries. Next-generation, high-powered Bosch CORE18V cells are laser-welded and rail-connected for high efficiency, allowing CORE18V batteries to deliver better performance than competitive batteries that have up to 24 percent more weight and are up to 35 percent larger.
