“SEALED TECHNOLOGY”: Einhell presents first water and dust-protected battery

Einhell Germany AG, a leading supplier of battery-powered DIY and garden tools, put its faith in batteries at an early stage, positioning itself as category leader in this sector with its Power X-Change platform. The battery specialist is now expanding its cordless range with a new, innovative and patented battery technology known as “SEALED TECHNOLOGY”. The company is presenting a new battery that meets IP57 requirements for protection against dust and water jets and can even be immersed in water briefly.

Tested and certified by TÜV Rheinland

With Power X-Change, we identified at an early stage our customers’ need for battery-powered solutions. That’s why we’re particularly proud to announce the market launch of our new SEALED batteries, supplementing our Power X-Change platform with another trailblazing technology. This is yet another expression of our bundled battery expertise,” says Dr. Markus Thannhuber, CTO of Einhell Germany AG. “We are confident that this innovative technology will enable us to win further market share, because it offers our customers real added value.”

The SEALED Power X-Change Plus battery will initially be offered in both the 3.0 Ah and the 4.0 Ah version. They have been tested by TÜV Rheinland and certified as conforming to the IP57 standard. The “5” refers to the level of protection against dust, while the “7” stands for the water protection class. That means the battery is optimally protected against both the possible ingress of fine dust from drilling, milling and sawing and the ingress of water from strong jets. It can even survive temporary immersion in water up to a depth of one meter for around 30 minutes. The integrated short circuit fuse on a special contact in the battery mount allows the sensor to detect contact with water and switch the electronics off. This ensures that the dried battery can be used again even after being immersed completely in water. The use of Power X-Change PLUS technology allows the latest generation of lithium-ion cells to be installed in the SEALED batteries.

The 18 V, 4.0 Ah SEALED Power X-Change PLUS battery is the high-end product in the Power X-Change family, and also suitable for twin-pack use in 36 V applications. The ABS process-controlled active battery management system has a microprocessor for permanently monitoring the battery parameters, thus ensuring maximum safety, optimum tool performance, maximum operating time, and a long service life. The current charge level can be checked on a three-step LED display. The housing has been designed to withstand corrosion and mechanical influences, while the rubber coating gives the battery high impact protection alongside good grip. There is a trough handle to enable easy removal from any tool.

The SEALED batteries are compatible with all battery-powered DIY and garden tools across the Power X-Change platform, which already comprises more than 300 tools. It can also be combined with other Power X-Change batteries that do not feature SEALED technology.

We always tailor our development work to the needs of our customers, and we are constantly expanding our expertise in the battery technology sector. The innovative patented SEALED TECHNOLOGY allows us to fulfill our role as pioneers and to offer our customers additional added value through what is a real world first. The SEALED technology enables the user to utilize Einhell battery power in even more versatile ways across every area, and is even protected against external influences such as water and dust. That means true cordless freedom,” Thannhuber continues.
