Teardown of a flexvolt 60v battery


Recommended Posts

Looks like a high quality unit. Hopefully that bar/disconnect for shipping is solely that and isn't a moving part that's integral to switching between 20v and 60v on the tool. More moving parts = more wear and tear, though I dare say the cells will likely be shot before that. Springs are an easy fix anyway, but still, less moving parts = better. The housing itself is really quite nice. I've been impressed with my M18 5.0s when I took them apart, and their chips aren't absolutely coated like that, so Dewalt looks to be catching up or surpassing Milwaukee w regards to durability, pack construction, and potentially weather resistance. If they can match M18 build quality on batteries then I'll be very pleased, if they surpass, well I can't wait until the 9.0 HD and FlexVolt are out!
