Rob Robillard, Carpenter and editor at talks about the NEW Bosch Wireless Battery Charging System

Read article here:

That brings us to the Bosch Power Ready Wireless Charging System. This new charging system allows users to recharge a tool anytime it would otherwise rest idle, eliminating downtime and dead batteries.

The Bosch Power Ready Wireless Charging System components include:

Wireless charger
Docking frame
Wireless-compatible 2.0 Ah 18V Li-ion battery pack

The new battery is compatible with all Bosch 18V power tools and only can be charged on the new wireless charger. A mountable holster will be available shortly and promote a grab and go storage solution. [photos of holster are included in this article]
Bosch Solution to a Job-Site Problem

This system is perfect for the mobile contractor who depends on finding electrical power on each job-site to charge tools. This system provides them with an in-vehicle charging system that works. The batteries are 80% charged in 30 minutes and 100% charged in 50 minutes. They can charge while traveling from job to job. It’s not just for the mobile solution, it will also work equally well for mechanics, in work-shops and manufacturing plants for folks who lose track of where they left their tool or spare batteries and cluttered charging stations take up space with batteries all over.

This system improves productivity and ensures that you will always have a fully charged battery and works in the following area:

Truck / Trailer / Van
Job Box Charging Station
Cart mounting

How It Works

The charger woks on the concept called inductive charging, similar to a modern, Phillips Sonocare rechargeable toothbrush. When the charger is plugged in and the compatible battery is placed on it, the charger begins wireless transmission through an alternating magnetic field.

The battery, featuring an internal copper coil, acts as a receiver. As the alternating magnetic field penetrates the coil, voltage is induced and a charging current flows to the cells until full. all this is done with minimal to no extreme heat transfer. The charger also features Foreign Object Detection, which detects when any other object [metal washer, screw or nail] besides the compatible battery is on the charging pad. If sensed, the charger will not turn on until the object is removed.

We tested this on our model and the Foreign Object Detection worked perfectly!!

NEW Bosch Mobile Holster:

The mobile holster, which we feel is a bit bulky, seems like it will be a more secure way to charge your tool. The holster can be wall- or shelf-mount the charger with either the WC18H mobile tool holster or WC18F charger frame. Bosch says that this holster takes up half the space of a case but the problem with this argument is that the tool case allows you to store tool drill / impact ready bits and accessories.
