T+3 series batteries?
« on: November 13, 2009, 04:00 PM »
Are there plans to offer larger or smaller (amp hour) batteries for T+3 series drills in the future?

Brice, I don't have an answer for you.  If I find something out, I'll post it.  Thanks.

Why are smaller or larger batteries of much interest?  The new batteries are very light compared to equal capacity NiCad or NiMH batteries.

Friends, family and Festools make for a good retirement.  PCs...I'm not so sure.

Dave, I agree the batteries are very light. I'd like the option to have a larger battery for longer run time (not that the run time on the current batteries aren't very good). And, since the battery is the bulkiest part of the drill I thought it might be nice to have an even smaller battery for the times when run time isn't the biggest concern.

Forgetful me!!  Longer run time is obviously of interest to those who cannot have their battery charger nearby and on duty!

As a cabinet installer, I'd love to see smaller batteries.  Run time isn't so important to me, as I'm always on powered sites, but I would love to shave an inch or two off the overall drill size (or even some fractions of an inch)  for those small boxes that just won't accept the t-15.
