Bosch AMPShare - 1 Battery Platform That Fits Many Brands

Posted by Katy | Toolstop on 2nd Sep 2022

Introducing AMPShare, Bosch's new battery platform that allows you to power tools from multiple brands with the 1 battery!

Bosch AMPShare

One Battery For All Applications

Bosch have just released a new battery platform, and it's going to be an absolute game changer within the tool world.

With just one battery system, tools and brands become interchangeable, without changing batteries.


The Next Big Thing in Cordless Tools

Do you know a guy, or are you that guy, who sticks to the one tool brand, regardless if another brand does a certain tool better?

Well, you wouldn't be the only one.

It's no secret that power tool batteries are expensive, hence why many tradespeople invest only into the one platform. The convenience of one battery being able to power all your kit is handy and advantageous, not to mention much more cost efficient.

Well, what if we told you that Bosch's new battery platform will be compatible across multiple tool brands? 😱


Introducing Bosch AMPShare - Many Brands. Many Tools. One Battery System.

Bosch just announced AMPShare, a battery platform that utilises their best-selling ProCORE18V batteries and combines them with multiple other tool brands to bring you a 'one size fits all'* battery system. (*Well, not all quite yet, as there's only a select number of brands currently invested into the platform, but we suspect this could be the case in the future).

The Bosch Professional 18V System is the leading battery system for tradespeople, having sold over 80 million batteries worldwide. ProCORE18V batteries are compatible with all Bosch Professional 18V tools since 2008 and will now also be compatible with tools of other expert brands, giving you more flexibility than ever before.

AMPShare batteries are fully compatible with all tools within the multi-brand alliance – including the entire Bosch Professional 18V System and all members of the AMPShare alliance are leading expert brands in their field – meeting the highest demands of trade and industry.

What are the benefits of this new system?

  • No need to buy a different battery and charger for each tool/brand
  • Reduce clutter in your kit by using the one battery/charger platform
  • No longer having to “make do” with what is available on a closed battery platform
  • No more “oh, but you don’t do one of these”
  • Complete freedom
  • Many expert brands already on board ‒ and more to come
  • This system is likely to expand in the future

"AMPShare is the universal battery system that allows you to use many tools from many professional brands with just one battery - thanks to leading Battery technology from Bosch professional"

What's So Good About Bosch ProCORE18V?

Having sold over 80 million batteries worldwide, we think this platform speaks for itself.

Bosch's ProCORE18V batteries feature the world's fastest charging technology. It takes only 9 minutes to charge the ProCORE18V 4.0Ah battery to 50% with the GAL 18V-160 C charger (in Power Boost Mode).

Not to forget:

  • Bosch's most powerful battery ever
  • Unique CoolPack technology provides superior heat management
  • Compact and lightweight - 4.0Ah ProCORE18V being 39% more compact than comparable batteries of its class
  • Electronic cell protection reliably protects the battery from overload, overheating and total discharge
