Panasonic Showcases New Dual Voltage Technology For Tough IP(TM) Power Tools At IBS 2013

The kits come with a charger, two 4.2Ah LS Li-ion battery packs and a carrying case. Panasonic's charger helps extend the life of the 4.2Ah LS battery pack and tool, since battery pack cells are independently monitored for even discharge while preventing over-charging and over-discharging. Sometimes professional users attempt to push their tools past design limits which can lead to irreversible battery or tool damage. An over-discharge sensor prevents the user from running the tool after it reaches the point where too-low voltage output could damage the battery or tool, and an internal temperature sensor also indicates if internal battery temperatures rise, and cuts off tool power if it reaches critical levels.

In addition to featuring superior battery technology and an IP 56 rating for effective dust and water resistance, Panasonic's new Dual Voltage Technology tools include the following features:
