BOSCH offers the Power Ready Wireless Charging System to charge cordless tools virtually anywhere, such as in a moving vehicle and between jobs or tasks with the battery on or off the tool.
The product is based on the concept of contactless energy transfer, also known as inductive charging, according to the company. When the charger is plugged in and the compatible battery is placed on it, the charger begins wirelessly transmitting an alternating magnetic field. The battery, featuring an internal copper coil, acts as a receiver. For information, visit www.boschtools.com.
