The AP 300 S battery continues to build on STIHL’s robust lithium-ion technology, improving in two key areas - power output and energy content. With an energy content rating increasing from 227 WH to 281 WH and power output being raised from 1.8 KW to 2.1 KW, the AP 300 S battery will appeal strongly to current and future users of STIHL’s Professional Series of lithium-ion battery tools. The improvements to the AP 300 S battery will also allow for a 25% increase in working time compared to the current AP 300 battery. The increase in performance is sure to impress any pro battery tool user. The charging level indicators, along with an ability to work easier in rainy conditions, will help make the AP 300 S a must have.
LED charge level indicator
There are four LEDS on the battery to indicate the charge level. Simply press the button to see how much energy is left.
STIHL batteries feature an intelligent battery management system - this advanced technology gives a constant level of power whether the battery is 100% charged or 20% charged.

#1 Looking after your battery
Don't use a damp or wet battery in your tools and avoid using them in extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold).
#2 Storing your battery
Take your battery out of the tool you have used it in and store it separately in a clean, dry place out of direct sunlight and ideally in some packaging, such as cardboard, to protect it, at a temperature between -10°C and 50°C. Don't forget to keep it out of reach of children.
