New Patriot In-Line tool incorporates lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology, enhanced electronics and refined hydraulic systems.

Cabling and connector tools manufacturer Burndy (Manchester, NH) has introduced its Lithium-Ion PATMD6-LI series of Patriot In-Line battery actuated tools. The new tool incorporates lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology, enhanced electronics and refined hydraulic systems. According to the company, 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 of 2.5 times more charge/discharge cycles than traditional Ni-Cd batteries -- which provides 430% more lifetime work, claims the company. The charge time is only 30 minutes, twice as fast as Ni-Cd and the battery weights 40% less than Ni-MH batteries. Additionally, the new PATMD6-LI series of Li-ion tools have over-molded handles for comfort and improved grip. Burndy will also continue to offer the current line of Ni-MH Patriot tools.
