Bosch PSB 18 LI-2 18v Cordless Combi Drill
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.
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.
The Bosch Power4all 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.
Power4all 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 Power4all 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.

Ordered a new DIY Bosch PSB18 LI-2 drill including new style charger as illustrated on the website. I went for this model, as I had previously had the first model of this when brought out by Bosch in 2011, so lasted me well. The new model has improved torque and overall quality is better. However, due to technical issues within the IT department, I didn't receive the new style charger, it came with the old style charger, the same as the one I had with the old model. If I'd have known it came with this I would have bought the drill and charger separately, as the old style charger doesn't work with the new style batteries. On a positive note to the company, I emailed them on the Friday evening regarding the issue. By the Monday morning when they had come back to work, the issue had been rectified with the IT department and the image had been changed to show the older style charger. The company had also authorised a replacement upto date charger (they are on the website, under Bosch DIY) and I received this on Wednesday. On the whole you can't ask for more than this. The company listened, acted and rectified the issue. Please note there are still old style batteries available for use so don't be put off by this. Just ask the company or contact Bosch. I have a Bosch professional starter line drill and the Bosch DIY PSB18 LI -2 beats it hands down. I highly recommend.
