Bosch ADVANCEDMULTI P4A 18v Cordless Starlock Oscillating Multi Tool
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
The Bosch PowerForAll Tool range is a range of tools you can buy knowing that batteries are compatible with all tools in the range providing they are of the same voltage. eg 18v fits 18v, 12v (10.8v) fits 12v (10.8v) etc. Please also note that 10.8v is compatible with 12v & vice versa as it is just a name change. Indego Lawnmowers also use the PowerForAll 18v battery but require a cover plate to be removed if changing.
PowerForAll has many advantages not least the fact that once you have a tool with a few batteries then there is no need to buy the more expensive versions with battery & charger, you can just go ahead & buy the much cheaper no battery versions!
So remember PowerForAll signifies complete battery compatibility throughout the range. There is however, one caveat to this, some of the very first older chargers will not charge the very latest batteries & a battery charger upgrade will be required if you have a first generation charger. All batteries fit all tools however.
As of 2021 Bosch has licensed PowerForAll to other manufacturers whereby batteries between these manufacturers will be interchangeable.
You cannot use Bosch Pro (Blue) batteries in either 12v or 18v DIY (Green) products.

Read 18 Customer Review(s) for Bosch ADVANCEDMULTI P4A 18v Cordless Starlock Oscillating Multi Tool
Used the Advancedmulti 18v for the first time today. Bit of a puzzle for the first 5 minutes working out how to fit the tool heads as there were no instructions. For those who need to know, tool head face down on a solid surface, tool onto it and just press down hard. To release the tool head was easy to see as there is a lever to operate. I needed to cut an insert into some skirting board and it went into it with ease. If the rest of the fittings work as well as this one, it looks like a winner. A nice solid little machine.
Really pleased with this product, with the attachments for removing grout and adhesive it was really effective at getting the tiles off the wall and cleaning off excess adhesive. Haven't tried it out for any other scenarios so can't really comment on overall capabilities.
like others say, how did I do without it
Great price, quick delivery, already used it
Great peace of machine at great price, would highly recommend to have at home for any DYIer.
Excellent item I had ordered the wrong one though ! Customer services were excellent in arranging the return and refund
Fantastic bit of kit should have got one years ago.
This is well made and so useful for many jobs. It is really good for precision cutting in difficult places to get to. Very good and I'm very pleased with this product.
Life saver. Removed seven layers of wood-chip wallpaper, plaster & etc with this. I recommend.
Top product, ideal and light but strong enough for many tasks, top service and prompt delivery from Tooled-up, will use again.
Both the Bosch Multi Cordless saw and the service received from Tooled-Up were excellent
Excellent service and quick delivery. Would definitely recommend Tooled-Up for their first class service.
Very happy with this product. It works really well.
Five star product
Excellent product & value for money
The first hurdle I came across is after market blades. Since its starlock you can't use any non-starlock blades which are common. There isn't an adaptor either that can be used. Nor after market starlock blades as its patented. So forced to buy expensive Bosch blades. Other than this like it.
Very gool tool for the job especially if you have the all-in-one. Wish it came in a box.
A great tool that works well. For the price though, it could have come with a few more accessories.

Q : Does the multi tool accept all multitool attachments or just the Bosch ones? thanks.
