Hitachi in the last few months have released a range of cordless tools incorporating their new slide on battery. This battery is more compact than the old cassette style batter and enables them to also bring out a new range of smaller and lighter tools while offering increased performance. When comparing the 2 drills for instance, you will notice the old style with the cassette battery is much bulkier and heavier than it's slide equivalent.

Available Tools

This new range of tools incorporates over 20 different models and includes brushless models of both the drill and impact driver. Battery technology has improved markedly over the last few years and Hitachi have been at the forefront of battery technology. One of the first companies to bring out 4.0ah Li-ion batteries, Hitachi are constantly looking at new technologies to improve the performance and reliability of their cordless tools.
