The Bosch 18 volt POWER FOR ALL battery can be used across the entire range of Bosch DIY 18V Power Tools, Garden Tools and Bosch Unlimited vacuum cleaners. Bosch lithium-ion batteries are the leading battery in the market and the pioneer in the DIY power tool industry.

Enjoy cordless freedom outdoors, in the workshop, or in the home moving the lithium-ion battery from one tool to another in no time at all. This saves you money in the long run, as you no longer need to buy additional batteries or chargers for other 18 V system tools in the Bosch POWER FOR ALL range.

POWER FOR ALL Battery System 

A separate battery and charger for each tool? This is expensive, annoying and not sustainable. Bosch have the solution!

Our 18V battery powers over 50 Bosch home, garden and household tools such as cordless screwdrivers, jigsaws, hedge trimmers, lawnmowers, outdoor cleaners, garden pumps, household vacuum cleaners and many more.

This avoids the need to purchase extra batteries and chargers – Save space, save money and protect the environment with the Bosch POWER FOR ALL 18v Battery System. 

Our 18V system allows cordless freedom too. No need to worry about cords holding you back from reaching those awkward spots around the house/garden that don’t have access to electricity. Additionally, you don’t need to second guess the power and reliability output of the Bosch DIY 18V cordless power tools range, in comparison to their corded predecessors.

The Bosch DIY range offers users the ability to purchase 18V tools within kits accompanied by batteries and chargers, or simply purchase the tools as a ‘bare-tool’ version without the battery and charger, if you already own one from a previous purchase. With one battery you can fulfil all your needs around the house without spending money on an extra battery with every tool purchased.

Which Bosch Battery is right for the job?

The ampere-hour (Ah) determines the size and capacity of the batteries. Consider the battery as the power tool’s fuel tank, making the value of the ampere-hour (Ah) equal to the storage capacity of the battery or “fuel tank”. The larger the tank, the more usage can be achieved in one go, until the battery needs to be recharged.

In the 18V POWER FOR ALL range, there are 5 battery sizes available to suit the application at hand; batteries ranging from 1.5Ah through to 6.0Ah. All batteries are forward and backwards compatible across the range of Bosch DIY tools – in other words, the same battery fits all previously existing and new power tool models.

2.5 Ah Battery:

  • up to 550 m edging (UniversalGrassCut 18)
  • cut up to 160 m² (EasyHedge18)
  • clean up to 3 bicycles (Fontus)
  • pump up to 30min. With a capacity of 11l / min, it thus manages 330l (GardenPump 18; for comparison: an average tank capacity is 250l)

4.0 Ah Battery:

  • mow up to 200m² of lawn (CityMower 18; for comparison: a tennis court has the size of 200m²)
