Milwaukee M18 18v Red Lithium Ion Battery 3.0Ah - £37.98 Delivered @ Toolstation
Posted 7 h, 22 m agoPosted 7 h, 22 m ago
Good price for genuine batteries. 3Ah is perfect for DIY use in drills, drivers etc. Will easily last a day of heavy use without being too heavy. Free delivery too which is usuall… Read more



Possibly, but the 5Ah is typically about £60 and no guarantee that won't need to be jump started as well. Not really an issue if it does for the sake of two minutes with a couple of hits of wire. I still think this is better deal unless you need the extra capacity, which is unlikely unless your regularly using it on something like a grinder or circular saw. For DIY use I'd much rather have two of these for £75 than a single 5Ah for £60.


I know it’s new I bought one lol but it’s old discontinued stock i can’t tell the difference between the 5ah and 3ah weight wise. For those that don’t want to jump start it then be better buying the newer batteries.


These are new. It's not uncommon to have to 'jump start' new batteries. I've had to do it with other brands too.


Bought one of these the other day from store got it home was dead had to bump start it off my other battery by connecting them together. Wouldn’t say there’s a discernible difference between the 5ah and 3ah weight. Would recommend just buying a new one I needed mine same day so didn’t have the luxury.

Bosch 18v 2.5Ah battery £30 @ Amazon
Posted 8th MayPosted 8th May
Down from £50.99. Great value if you’ve bought into this tool system.

Good enough for me around the house for many, many years, I have really big system and lots of batteries. No issues.


Good batteries, mediocre tools. The only decent tools in the Bosch green platform is the Multitool (surprisingly good although compatible blades are expensive), the Jigsaw (Bosch makes good ones), and the Hedge Cutter. Everything else I have owned/tried is pretty much pathetic, with the Golden Raspberry Award for the abysmal Impact. You will get much better value from the 3 mainstream pro platforms (DeWalt, Makita, Bosch Blue) especially if you are not in a hurry for a certain tool and shop smart.


Marvellous - thanks for confirming. I bought an ex-display strimmer that just came with a new battery & no charger so the battery has been gathering dust. I recently picked up another PSB1800 as a spare & that came with the new batteries and charger so that's handy to know I can charge all of my batteries on this new one.


I have one of the older type batteries and yes, I can confirm it charges on the newer style charger, as you say through the same connector as fitting to the tool (which is the same on both types).


Please be aware that (unless I'm doing something very wrong) the new batteries do not fit the old chargers as there are separate connectors on the bottom of the old batteries to interact with the old charger. Both types fit the tools ok as that connection is the same. No idea yet if the old batteries can be charged by a new charger - I assume they'll connect ok using the top connectors but I don't know if they are good to accept a charge in this way. If anyone can confirm that would be helpful. Cheers.

Heat added @BioOdyssey and well done on your first thread Don't leave us waiting another 10 years for your next post ;)


I am 99% certain these batteries won't fit without a specific einhell/ Bosch adapter. However I am happy to be proved wrong so please post back with your results Think about it logically. It the batteries were compatible the news would be all over the internet if you could get half price batteries for a major brand.


I don't believe they are. Completely different pin Spacing for a start. Hope this helps someone.


Thanks for the post. One in stock at my local Toolstation too! (y)


Couldn't have come at a better time, it was pain switching the one battery I had over between 3 tools. Thanks op

So you have no actual point to these not being interchangeable other than that you have purchased them. Wow if you have purchased them then that changes everything


Yes, I'd already bought one when they were reduced to £7 which hasn't been opened yet




I'm missing your point


I've got these and have seen plenty of tools over the years from this range
