Bosch PSM 18 LI 18v Cordless Detail Sander
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.
As of 2021 Bosch has licensed Power4all to other manufacturers whereby batteries between these manufacturers will be interchangeable.

I bought this for the stairs. The vibration made my hands numb so I only use it for a few minutes at a time and decided not to use it to remove paint, just to sand the wood after the paint was removed.
Excellent product slight delay on sending understanding so due to the present circumstances All in all very pleased thankyou
Started putting this to good use, sanding bench, bird table, and little garden outdoor table... stained and now look good as new. Still lots to do, but very happy with this cordless sander. Good battery life.
Lightweight and very efficient. Battery lasts a good while and charges quickly. Dust collection works well.
As per usual yet another tool befitting the Bosch name.
Have not used the product yet maybe find out in four months time how good is it.
It's a bit bulkier than I hoped, but my female hands are not that big. I would have loved a guide on best ways to use. Not safety instructions. Nice piece of kit though.
Ordered with the jigsaw and both arrived on time and are first class items.

Only used a couple of times so far functional and effective. Yet to use with the Bosch dust extractor. Staff when ringing with a query about the charger were efficient and helpful.
A really sturdy piece of kit which makes short work of wood and painted surfaces. Just make sure you order the correct sanding sheets to use with this device! Recommended.
Great product, the battery removal requires a certain knack.
Great little sander, easily used one handed. Battery lasted 1.5 hours of "constant" use. Triangle sand pad fantastic, as I was using it for detailed work being able to spin the pad and use all three corners was great and made the pads great value for money.
Superb item however was inadvertently sent to A London address
Nice sander for doing the garden furniture. The battery life is good, but i wish i had bought a second battery as i kept having to stop to recharge (1 hour). the sawdust trap gets full quickly so needs to be emptied frequently. However a nice bit of kit and no need for extension cords.
I bought this product to help me with my summer task of repainting all the shutters on my french house. I have been really impressed how it sands down the difficult fiddly bits that you cannot reach with a larger sander.
Excellent performance. good battery power, get one hour plus before needing to recharge. however, find it difficult to remove the battery,
Bought as a present but solidly made and has been used successfully. The extra cost to have it cordless is worth it.
Excellent sander, reliable and easy to use . great design especially as the tip can sand into corners. great shape and the dust collect box is a good idea. used recently on several projects including restoring furniture and decorated the outside of the house, up a ladder and no lead! Making the job a lot easier! all round an excellent product at an excellent price from tooled up!
This sander is a well made professional tool.
An excellent piece of kit- well pleased.
The clincher for buying this unit was the integral dust collecting box. This proved a bit of a disappointment as there is very little suction evident. Consequently quite a high proportion of the dust enters the atmosphere. However, overall it performs very well and connected to a vacuum the dust problem is resolved, but this obviously reduces its ease of use.
Nice piece of kit. Does what its meant to. Excellent delivery time
Not as convenient as the prio it replaces - awkward to hold
Excellent little sander takes the drudgery out of sanding. Dust collector is a bit gimmicky but great value.
This is the best sander that i have ever owned and also at a great price. got it for sanding down old doors and had it done in quick time. the delivery time was great, delivered before 12.00 noon the day after ordering
Very handy powerful sander. Being cordless it is extremely useful when working at height. The built in dust bag is handy but blocks quickly if using on dusty substances such as plasterboard / filler. The hoover can be connected if doing a lot of indoor dusty work.
Light and powerful and ergonomic
Arrived in strong polythene packaging. Usual well designed bosch carrying box. Sander is well designed and built to bosch's usual high standard. A second battery would make the item better value for money as all bosch tools are at the upper end of the price range. I purchased this item as a tooled up had offered a very good price reduction. I probably would not have bought one full price. We will see how well this sander performs and lasts. Previous models i have owned have worked ver well but have not lasted as long as i would have expected for a premium product.
Efficient, versatile, convenient. Does what you want, where and when you want.
Bought for and used to prepare cabin cruiser for re-paint. very, very good at removing old varnish from wooden handles, rubbing-down painted fibreglass cabin. Abrasive pre-cuts fix onto velcro very easily - don't forget to rotate the front one to get the most out of it. The foot has some padding which allows some *give* for getting into corners and on curved surfaces. Very little dust - most goes into container at rear. Lasted a surprisingly long time (had two batteries, only used one!) also very little vibration - quite comfortable to use. Made a boring chore into a pleasure - now hunting for other rubbing-down projects. Recommended.
I didn't hesitate to buy this when i got an e-mail saying it was on offer. It's made by bosch that's good enough for me. I've got six other tools made by them and a dishwasher, none of which have ever let me down, so in my opinion it was bound to be a great tool. It came along at the right time as i was doing some woodwork. Being battery powered this is brilliant for carrying around, no need for a power point and no lead getting in the way. I bought a spare battery at the same time as it was also reduced. It charges up in 30 minutes so it's always ready to use.
Used a few times not for long so far but looks and feels great on first few uses. So far so good thanks
Really good bit of kit!
Not the most powerful hand sander but very easy to use. dust collector is good. battery is a little difficult to remove. second battery is useful for long jobs. it stopped working after nine months and had to be repaired under the warranty. it had had an awful lot of use over the nine months.
Looks a solid unit, however the battery keeps falling out of the sander unit. The battery is a havy unit so it could damage your foot if sanding at a height.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Can someone give me details on the battery needed
A : Hi Rebecca, there is actually not a great deal of choice when it comes to the PSM 18 LI as the larger batteries won't fit it - this means we only sell it in kit form with 2.5ah batteries - most users report getting over an hours use with one of these before needing to recharge, but if you think you will be doing bigger jobs we offer it in a kit with two batteries as well. You can choose these kits from the green drop down menu or you can buy the bare tool without battery and charger and add your own batteries and charger if you'd prefer.
Q : Please confirm that the battery is included. Your description says that it is but elsewhere it states no battery included. Thanks
A : I can confirm that this this comes as 2 options Body only with No Battery, No Charger and No Case or as a complete set with 1 X 2ah Battery, 1 X 240v Mains Battery Charger and 1 X Carry Case. These options can be selected in the right hand selection menu before you click Add to Basket.
