Dewalt introduces FlexVolt Advantage, a brand new innovative technology that allows you to achieve even more power output than ever before. This blog post expalins what FlexVolt Advantage is as well as some new produts to look out for!
What is Dewalt FlexVolt Advantage?
FlexVolt Advantage is Dewalt's new innovative technology that gives you even more power output than ever before. Think new brushless motors with stronger magnets and increased copper in the outer windings, plus a brand new electronic module!
18V tools featuring the new FlexVolt Advantage technology will recognise FlexVolt batteries to deliver more power than standard 18V batteries. This makes these tools even more powerful than before, allowing you to complete professional tasks in ample time and with minimum effort.
The 18V XR range is Dewalt's most popular and fastest growing range of cordless tools. Whilst these tools produce enough power and runtime to complete most professional tasks, sometimes you need that extra bit of power for the more demanding jobs - FlexVolt Advantage pulls through.
What are the Benefits of FlexVolt Advantage?
FlexVolt Advantage recognises what type of battery pack is being used in the tool (18V or 54V), drawing more current and adjusting the power output accordingly, meaning much more power output for the professional user. The beauty of FlexVolt Advantage is that these tools remain compatible with your existing 18V batteries.
The new DCD999 combi drill is said to deliver up to 42% more power when paired with a DCB546 XR FlexVolt 6.0Ah battery versus a DCB184 18V XR 5.0Ah battery.

To Summarise FlexVolt Advantage:
- FlexVolt Advantage tools recognise FlexVolt batteries and adjust the power output accordingly
- The new tools feature an updated software and brushless motors
- Much greater power output and versatility whilst remaining in the 18V range
- Expanding range of tools could make this the next big thing
