A tool battery comprises of a number of different components. Only when all components comply to highest quality standards, they are assembled into a Power X-Change battery pack. We take care of not just performance but also safety - that is required when storing, shipping and using. our batteries.
We only use high-quality Li-Ion cells from brand-name international manufacturers in our Power X-Change batteries. We thus ensure that we are always equipped with consistent high quality and adherence to the strictest safety standards.
When selecting our battery cells we do not just rely on good reputation: Each Power X-Change battery cell undergoes an automated and independent audit to provide 100% safety. And that even after years of intensive use!
As exact specifications of individual cells can vary from the finished product, we have strict selection criteria to ensure high standards of consistency and safety. So each Power X-Change battery pack consists of cells that are prefectly aligned to each other.
Other components of our battery packs must also adhere to the highest standards. From cooling efficient arrangement of individual components to shockproof and dirt resistant plastic casing: continuous checks and tests make our battery pack one of the best tool batteries in the market.
Complementing our strict production control procedures and guidelines, is our active Battery Management System (ABS). It helps assure utmost safety and performance - all through the battery's life. ABS monitors the inside of every Power X-Change battery for all safety relevant parameters and controls the right use of individual cells.
That is how we prevent typical damage to the battery. Be it deep discharge, surges, overheating, self discharge or memory effect: ABS recognises damaging risks early on and effectively counters them. In case of critical battery conditions, ABS shuts the power supply off.
The special Power X-Change charger is not only highly efficient but also very safe. Several internal controls ensure that the cells in the battery pack are charged uniformly and correctly. This not only extends the battery life, but also presents one more safety advantage.
The charger thus prevents short circuits between the cells when temperatures are too low and automatically shuts off, if there are disturbances or the battery is completely charged.
A complex and comprehensive battery system functions safely and reliably only if the devices it powers are also aligned to the requirements. That is why, when designing and developing Power X-Change tools and garden equipment, we make special demands on the electronic parts that get into the tool.
Continuous checks and tests ensure that the heat and fire sensistive components adhere to the highest safety standards. All Power X-Change devices go through a certification process by an independent audit body.
