PATRIOT Lithium-ion Crimping and Cutting Tools are Battery Operated
BURNDY announces its lithium-ion line of PATRIOT battery actuated crimping and cutting tools.
BURNDY, a manufacturer and provider of connector solutions, announces the introduction of its lithium-ion line of PATRIOT battery actuated crimping and cutting tools.
BURNDY has incorporated lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology, enhanced electronics and refined hydraulic systems—advancing the PATRIOT line of crimping and cutting tools to the forefront of performance, speed and reliability.
The advantages of the new 18-volt 3.0 Ah lithium-ion technology over Ni-Cd and Ni-MH are no memory effects, no self discharge, no conditioning required and a longer battery life—2.5 times more charge/discharge cycles than traditional Ni-Cd batteries and 430 percent more lifetime work. The charge time is only 30 minutes, twice as fast as Ni-Cd, and the battery weighs 40 percent less than Ni-MH batteries.
The new Li-ion tools have over-molded handles for comfort and improved grip. All BURNDY PATRIOT tools are made in the USA.
BURNDY will continue to offer the current line of Ni-MH PATRIOT tools, allowing customers’ choice and flexibility.
