Einhell's range of rechargeable batteries has come out on top in the rechargeable battery tests carried out by renowned German consumer organization 'Stiftung Warentest'.In the current comparison tests, which are published by 'Stiftung Warentest' in the 11/2020 edition of its test magazine, the Power X-Change rechargeable battery system from Einhell outperformed all its rivals in the tests, which involved eight different battery platforms. The battery units from the international group with roots in Lower Bavaria/Germany impressed in terms of durability, handling, and safety.

"We are 'best in class' for rechargeable batteries."

Landau an der Isar, November 2nd, 2020 - The ability to power multiple cordless tools with a single rechargeable battery pack is the current trend for DIY tools and garden equipment. In the latest edition of the test magazine published by 'Stiftung Warentest', eight different battery platforms from different brands were put through their paces. The top spot was taken by Einhell's 18 V 2.0 Ah battery from its Power X-Change family.

"The fact that our rechargeable battery has seen off all the rivals in the tests carried out by 'Stiftung Warentest' shows that we have been ahead of the curve and have successfully establish ourselves with Power X-Change as the category leader in the field of rechargeable battery technology. This validates the clear focus we have placed in recent years on cordless tools and garden equipment and our strategic concentration on developing our Power X-Change battery platform into the broadest and most competent cordless platform that is out there on the market today. We are extremely proud that we have been able to see off the competition from renowned competitors and that this comparison test has clearly demonstrated our competence in rechargeable batteries. As the leader in the cordless segment, we have set new standards with Power X-Change in terms of endurance, performance, and safety - and now we are even 'best in class' for rechargeable batteries," explains Andreas Kroiss, CEO of Einhell Germany AG.

Criteria for the comparison test

When it comes to choosing the right rechargeable battery, durability, handling, and the safety of tool batteries are important factors for customers, so naturally the tests carried out by 'Stiftung Warentest' also focused on these areas. In addition, the testers also looked at the number of different tools available that are compatible with the same battery system, and whether the batteries are also suitable for third-party products. Einhell batteries impressed in all aspects of the test criteria.

Dr. Markus Thannhuber, Chief Technology Officer of Einhell Germany AG, was also delighted with Einhell's win in the 'Stiftung Warentest' tests.

"Having already done incredibly well with top scores for Power X-Change tools and equipment in previous 'Stiftung Warentest' tests, we are even more excited that a rechargeable battery from the Power X-Change family, which we have devoted so much energy to developing, came out the test winner. All our Power X-Change batteries are equipped with state-of-the-art processor-controlled rechargeable battery electronics, the so-called Active Battery Management System, which is specifically designed to ensure durability and safety for the batteries. In addition, for years we have been concentrating our expertise on the field of rechargeable battery technology so that we can further extend the leading role of our Einhell battery system."

The Einhell family of equipment that can be powered by the test-winning battery already includes more than 170 compatible DIY and gardening tools - and it is being steadily expanded. This makes Power X-Change the first system to offer such a broad portfolio of products to DIY enthusiasts and hobby gardeners alike. The rechargeable battery platform is also being opened up to selected partners and products in the worlds of lifestyle, mobility, and domestic appliances.

This test win has confirmed the positive developments that have been taking place at Einhell Germany AG in recent years, particularly in the area of cordless tools and gardening equipment. With this strategy, Einhell is giving all its customers the ability to enjoy simplified, cordless freedom when working on all DIY projects.
