The heart of a Hilti cordless tool is the gear efficiency. With even a normal battery, the SF 180-A provides a stronger output. When coupled with Hilti's innovative battery and charging technology, this efficiency helps provides the tool with a longer run time and more consistent performance. Hilti offers the SF 180-A with two battery options: a 2.0 amp-hour nickel cadmium (NiCd) or 3.0 amp-hour nickel metal hydride (NiMH). The NiMH batteries provide 50 percent more run time than standard batteries. The Hilti rapid charger, which comes with the 3.0 amp-hour nickel hydride (NiMH) battery, features a refresh button that helps refresh the batteries after every 40 charging cycles. The Hiti charger's refresh button puts new life into dead batteries by providing them with a charge that optimally conditions all battery cells in only 12 hours. Mobility for Comfortable Use in Tight Spaces
