STIHL has enhanced its battery offering with the introduction of the new AP 500 S, the most powerful AP battery in the STIHL range and the first to feature power laminate technology.

Designed for use with any professional STIHL AP System tool, the 36V AP 500 S features innovative flat power laminate cells instead of traditional round cells, helping to double the service life of the battery up to 2,400 charge cycles and ensuring a long working life of up to 10 years.

What's more, the AP 500 S boasts a 20% higher capacity and increased operating time with all STIHL AP Systems tools for only an extra 200g of weight, ensuring professionals can use STIHL tools for longer, while keeping the overall system weight to a minimum.

The AP 500 S is the only battery compatible with the new MSA 300, STIHL's most powerful cordless chainsaw for professional users. In addition, the new battery can also be simply integrated with STIHL Connected, the smart fleet management tool, to easily monitor total discharge time and location of the battery.

Like all STIHL batteries in the AP System, the new AP 500 S can be used in all weather conditions and has a charge level indicator via the four green LEDs.
