The company has launched its first 14.4-volt XRP Lithium Ion battery (DC9144). The battery is compatible with any existing company brand 14.4-volt tools. It is designed with Nano-Phosphate Lithium Ion cells, which is a proprietary technology from the company that offers a combination of longer cycle life, lighter weight and greater performance. The battery provides users with increased battery durability and cycle life, offering 2,000 recharges. The backwards compatibility of the battery enables users to continue to expand upon their existing 14.4-volt platform and use any battery with 16 existing DeWalt 14.4-volt tools.
