Bosch Core18V 8.0 Ah Battery is Officially Announced

We already knew Bosch had 18V 8.0 ah 10 cell battery packs in the works since close to 2 years ago. When we first learned about them they were called ProCore batteries however now they’ve officially announced the new 8.0 ah battery and they are part of the current CORE18V branding.

Not much has changed since the info from 2017 was leaked as they still use ten 21700 battery cells making it a fatpack battery and even the actual design and look of the battery remains the same or very similar. The only change is the branding from ProCore to CORE18V which has more to do with how they are branded. You’ll still find the 5 bar fuel gauge on the back. They are available now for $149 USD or $199 Canadian. Available in May 2019 in Canada. Check out the full press release below for full info directly from Bosch.

Bosch GBA18V80 CORE18V Performance 18V Lithium-Ion 8.0 Ah Battery Delivers Next-Generation Power and Runtime

Powerful battery delivers twice the power and runtime of standard 4.0 Ah batteries

Mt. Prospect, April 24, 2019 – Upgrading your jobsite and doubling productivity just got easier with a battery that delivers on the promise of increased power. The Bosch GBA18V80 CORE18V Performance 18V Lithium-Ion 8.0 Ah Battery uses the latest high-power 21700 cells to deliver twice the power and runtime of standard batteries.

The 8.0 Ah CORE18V Performance Battery provides high-capacity power and outstanding power-to-weight ratio at a practical 2.14 Lbs. Thanks to cutting-edge engineering, this battery features advanced cell technology  that delivers great power with lower internal resistance. Instead of the 15 cells packed into much larger batteries, the CORE18V Performance Battery houses just 10 cells to deliver significantly more power in a lighter, more compact package.

The 21700 cell provides 11 percent more power and 27 percent more runtime with the same number of cells as an 18V 6.3 Ah battery. This innovation enables the battery to efficiently transfer more power to the tool, which improves performance. It’s designed to deliver the power and battery efficiency required by high-capacity tools.

“We designed the 18V 8.0 Ah CORE18V Performance Battery for high-capacity power tools, such as reciprocating saws, circular saws and rotary hammers that require high power for the most demanding applications,” said Theron Sherrod, product manager, Bosch Power Tools. “The high-performance battery allows trade pros to use their most powerful tools on the jobsite for longer periods of time.”

The GBA18V80 battery also features design elements that keep the battery cool. Heat is the natural enemy of batteries; Bosch engineered the exclusive CoolPack 2.0 technology to manage the heat of the higher power-density cells. It provides better cooling than the previous-generation CoolPack system, extending battery lifetime by 35 percent. Improvements in the design transfer more heat to the Performance Battery’s outer surface where it’s forced away from the battery.
