Power Tools

Increasingly more power for lower weight.

Handheld electrical tools increasingly need higher power and come with more and more demanding weight restrictions. Umicore's Li-ion technology offers an innovative solution for this trade-off: being intrinsically lighter than the classical technologies, such as NiCd or NiMH, the development of high-power NMC perfectly fits the requirements.

Batteries containing Umicore's Li-ion cathodes surpass the classical NiCd batteries, not only in power and weight, but also in cycle life, making this technology the clear winner.

We offer specific NMC cathode materials as the
optimal solution for the weight-power trade-off,
enabling this technology to satisfy every customer.
