Dewalt POWERSTACK 5ah Battery – Battery cells
Powerstack batteries do not have traditional cylinder battery cells. Instead they use a stack of pouch cells. Pouch cells are similar to those found in your cell phone.
Dewalt POWERSTACK 5ah Battery – Features
This compact battery has a larger capacity than the original. While the original Powerstack had 1.7 ah (amp hours) of capacity, this new Powerstack has 5 ah! That’s over double the capacity. Amp hours is a measurement of capacity not power output. The rear has a built in fuel gauge to show you remaining battery.
Dewalt claims the new Powerstack 5ah is the most powerful battery in its class. They say 50% more power than a regular 5ah battery, 50% more efficient than their other XR series batteries 5ah or lower. And 50% more efficient with 50% more the work per charge and twice the life span of a regular 5ah battery. They claim that it can get double the total recharges per lifetime compared to the regular 5ah.
