Charlotte, N.C. – WORX® has introduced its most powerful 20V battery with the new 20V MAX 4.0 Ah battery. This pint-size lithium-ion power station features twice the run time of the 20V 2.0 Ah battery enabling users to get more from their lawn and garden and DIY tools.
The 20V 4.0 Ah battery is compact and weighs 1.5 lbs. The battery is compatible with all WORX 20V lawn and garden and DIY tools and is part of the WORX 20V Power Share program.
The battery features a built-in fuel gauge. Users can monitor charge levels by pressing an electronic keypad that signals the battery’s charge status. When charging the 4.0 Ah battery, a conventional WORX 20V charger takes up to five hours. Optional WORX 20V chargers including the 60 minute (WA3868, $39.99) and 25 minute charger (WA3835, $49.99) take 2 hrs. and 50 minutes respectively, to reach full charge.
“It’s a huge benefit for our tool users and something they’ve been asking for,” said Brandon Martin, WORX Product Manager. “Delivering twice the run time compared to the 2.0 Ah battery, there’s minimal interruptions due to power loss when users are in the middle of a job or project.”
At a bare minimum, the 4.0 Ah battery doubles run time for all WORX 20V lawn and garden and DIY tools. If it’s a 1.5 Ah battery, run time increases more than 2-1/2 times.
A number of tool manufacturers offer bare tools and accessories today. A bare tool is considered the tool by itself without a battery or a charger. This bare bones approach saves consumers money because in most cases they already have a battery and charger from a previous purchase. The other advantage is that it allows the user to cherry pick the battery and charger they’d like to use with the bare tool. WORX Power Share program is no exception. It gives users the ability to mix and match by buying the tools, batteries and charger they want with minimal expense.

Many of the WORX 20V tools in the program start at $49.99.
