DeWalt offers redesigned 3.0 Ah battery pack


Lighter, compact, compatible. This is basically what DeWalt set out to accomplished with its redesigned 3.0 Ah Li-ion battery.

The new model (DCB230) weighs about 18 percent less than its predecessor (model DCB200) yet offers the same capacity, according to the company. It weighs in at 1.1 lbs. and is compatible with DeWalt’s 20-volt Max System that has over 165 products.

“The DCB230 is compatible with our large and growing system of 20-volt Max tools and chargers,” says Sean Fitzgibbons, DeWalt’s senior product manager for professional power tools.

“We recommend compact batteries for applications where reduced weight is desirable, such as overhead drilling/fastening, or when a tool would be in-hand for an extended period of time. The DCB230 is [our] highest capacity compact battery, so it provides an optimal balance of runtime and light weight for many applications.”

The new battery sells for about $99. It’s also sold in a two-pack for $149 or with a charger for $119.
