STIHL has upgraded its AP 300 S battery to include built-in STIHL Connected technology, allowing professional users to monitor the working time of the battery and manage their machinery fleet efficiently.
The updated addition, which is compatible with all cordless tools in the professional AP System, can transmit useful information via Bluetooth® to the STIHL Connected App. This includes information regarding the total discharge time per day, the battery health status and the number of charge cycles completed.
The STIHL Connected App also benefits from a ‘Nearby’ feature meaning all Connected products within a 10m radius of the user can be accounted for, helping to prevent tools from being left at the jobsite.
As well as being compatible with all STIHL power tools, STIHL Connected technology also features on other batteries such as the AP 500 S, AR 2000 L and AR 3000 L backpack batteries, meaning a comprehensive view of the entire fleet of cordless tools is possible in the STIHL Connected Portal.
With an energy capacity of 281Wh, the new Lithium-Ion battery offers an increased capacity of up to 25% compared to the AP 300, which means it consistently powers tools for longer. The new AP 300 S with built-in STIHL Connected technology will replace the current AP 300 and AP 300 S batteries.
Additionally, for maximum convenience, users are made aware when the battery requires recharging by way of its integrated LED charge indicator. And when the time comes to charge the battery, the product is compatible with a number of chargers including the AL 301, AL 301-4 and AL 500 quick charger unit.
