The global market for Battery Operated Power Tools has reached a high of $2.2 billion in 2015. The growth of the power tool market can be attributed to the rising demand from SMEs. However, the recent lockdown in various parts of the world has hampered the growth of the market. Nonetheless, the third and fourth quarters of 2018 have seen a rise in sales due to a recovery in North America and Europe.
As with other electric tools, battery operated power tools can be hazardous if misused. Before, only activation of the tools could determine its state. This technology prevents misuse of electric tools by ensuring that the tool is turned off when not in use. Batteries are the most common source of power, but they also have their own risks and should be treated as such. The battery life of a battery operated tool should be at least ten percent.
Batteries should be 16 awg and have a female receptacle. The length of the cord depends on your needs. If the tool needs to be used in remote areas, you can purchase an extension cord, but at least three to five feet of cord is enough. Option A involves drilling a hole in the battery cover. A rubber boot can be attached to the wire exiting the battery cover. Battery operated tools are more convenient for frequent use because they require less maintenance.
While a battery is rechargeable, it also takes time to run. If you’re a small business owner, this can lead to unnecessary downtime. To avoid this problem, Matrix Tools has developed corded adapters for Flexvolt tools. Corded adapters allow you to use the tools with a wall outlet when the battery has run out. It’s important to keep these tools well-maintained to avoid accidents and maintain the quality of your work.
