Festool adding Bluetooth battery packs


Festool announced it will begin offering new Bluetooth 18-volt Li-ion battery packs in April.

The battery packs communicate with the Bluetooth module recently introduced on most models of Festool’s CT Dust Extractor. They will be available in 5.2 Ah and 6.2 Ah.

“The new Bluetooth battery packs allow professionals to benefit from Festool's virtually dust-free system when working with Festool cordless products,” Leo Zirkler, Festool’s vice president of marketing, said in a statement. “And, they further extend the functionality and convenience of our recently updated CT dust extractors.”
