The EY4541X is powered by a 3.0 ah Cobalt Li-ion battery pack. This battery pack delivers high output with low heat generation, resulting in twice the lifetime total performance versus current Ni-Cd battery packs. In addition the EY4541 utilises Panasonic's unique GuardION system. The GuardION system monitors each battery cell during battery charging and during tool use to prevent over-discharging and overheating of the battery pack thus insuring long life.
The EY4541X uses a self-diagnostic universal battery charge that monitors the condition of each battery cell in the battery pack during the charging process to deliver full charging with minimal heat generation. The charger will charge all Panasonic battery chemistries: Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, Li-ion and all voltages from 7.2-28.8 V. The 3.0 ah Li-ion battery pack fully charges in 50 minutes. The EY4541X is sold as a tool body only.
