About this deal
I trimmed quite a large part of my hedges within two batteries-worth of power, and after 3 hours the first battery was ready to start all over again - brilliant! A The main difference between Ni-Cad and Ni-MH batteries is the energy density and the reduced crystalization (memory) of the Nimh battery. When the hedge needs trimming, I wouldn't say that I now clap my hands and skip into the garden, but at least the prospect doesn't make me as grumpy as it used to.
The Ni-Cad is known as the workhorse of the portable battery industry and is high cycling solid performer but if not charged/discharged properly will be prone to develope memory. With its supplied battery, the AHS 41 Accu delivers a runtime of 55 minutes or 25 metres of hedge cutting.I allowed the first battery to lose all power, then swapped the batteries (handy, that) and carried on. Brand new product, complete with all accessories, that has been repacked in a plain box as the retail box was damaged.
In 35 years of gardening, I've been there, done that and got the Fruit Of The Loom with countless cheap mains-powered hedge trimmers.If the capacity (Ah) of the battery is higher than the capacity of the original battery it will enable a longer life expectancy. Unsure of the life of the battery (meaning how many years it will last) but since there is two then wont have to worry for a while I guess. There is a number of chargers that Bosch supply, the better ones make it easy as the lights indicate its state of charge, others do not. I chose this one because of the two batteries (as a breed they instinctively know the most inconvenient moment to run out of charge) and the positive reviews.
Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries have more energy and will not be as prone to "memory" as Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadium). It is so much better than my old corded trimmer - only after using it did I realise I was living in the dark ages!
With my old timmer I was struggling to trim my hedge but now with this Bosch it is like slicing through butter! We often get asked this question from another angle, they say its been on charge for 2 days but only last 2 minutes of not at all in the tool, we ask in retort when was it last charged and working, the reply is normally more than 6 months ago.

I was really expecting the batteries to be useless by this year, as rechargeables don't like to be left for a long time without being drained then recharged - or at least they don't in cameras made by (insert name of camera company of your choice here). Previously I had to get out the extension lead, untangle it and run the cable through the window but now all I have to worry about is making sure the battery is charged, attach it to the unit and go!
I've looked DOWN, from the top of a ladder towering over my pretty long and depressing beech hedge, but never back. I need not have worried; this little beauty sliced through all of it without a pause, and 45 minutes later, was still going strong! In addition to this, the battery and charger of the new hedgecutters fit the cordless power tools in the 14. Thanks to the optimum centre of gravity of the tools and the large distance between the two handles, they can be conveniently and safely guided in any cutting position.
