The GAL 1830 is only suitable for use with Bosch Wireless Charging technology batteries. Couple the Bosch GAL 1830 Wireless Charger with a Bosch wireless battery and the benefits of the system are immediately apparent. Wireless Charging technology means you can charge your Bosch wireless Li-Ion battery without ever having to remove it from the tool. When not in use, place the tool on the charger, your battery is continuously ‘topped up’. Next time you need the tool, pick it up and off you go. The technology uses contactless energy transfer by means of induction. An induction coil in the GAL 1830 Wireless Charger generates a magnetic alternating field. The battery contains another coil which induces a voltage and generates a charging current. The system is very robust as there are no contacts that may become damaged; dust, dirt or water splashes make no difference to the charger’s performance. Charges both 10.8V and 18V Bosch wireless batteries.

Well thought out and charges very quicklyThis charges the wireless Bosch batteries, even topping them up when a tool is in use or providing a complete charge for a drained battery, for the latter it seems to take not much longer than the non wireless charger. What I especially like if the blue frame add on that the charger can be removed on, as the promotional video shows this allows the charger to be mounted on the bottom a shelf and the tool can then hang from this whilst charging.
