Which battery type is the best for cordless tools?

The cordless tool industry has grown exponentially since the release of the Li-ion battery, mainly because of the vast improvement over the other older battery types.

Yes, it is true that some of the other battery types listed in this article are outdated, but they do still have their uses and they are still sold with some cordless tools such as cordless lawn mowers, or grass shears.

The super quick answer: If you want the quick answer as to which battery type is best, then you will probably want to go with a Li-ion battery.

Of course, there are many other things to consider, if you want to learn a bit more then please keep reading.

What are the advantages of Lithium Ion (Li-ion) batteries?

These batteries:

  • Are more powerful smaller batteries
  • Will retain their charge longer when not in use
  • They can be recharged hundreds (even thousands) of times
  • Don’t develop battery memory, or put simply they won’t reduce their lifespan by constantly recharging even when only half drained
  • Can hold a higher charge.

Is there a difference between a Lithium battery and a Lithium Ion battery?

Yes, simply put the main difference is that in most cases a Lithium battery is not rechargeable and you should never try to recharge them while a Lithium Ion battery is rechargeable and be recharged hundreds of times.

The future of cordless tool batteries

If I could turn on my crystal ball and tell you exactly where battery technology was heading… I would! Unfortunately, my crystal ball is being repaired!

But, I can tell you what I do know and what some of the worlds most renowned battery experts know.

The truth is that at the moment, there is no magical battery technology being developed that will change the world. While there are some theories of technologies that MIGHT work – there really are no working models for the moment.

There is, however, lots of money being spent on improving Li-Ion battery tech. This is due to the rise of electric cars and stationary battery energy storage (for storing energy generated from wind and solar power). So we should see a new generation of Li-Ion batteries being developed that will slowly take over the market as manufacturing ramps up and costs come down.
