The AP 500 S is not only the most powerful AP battery from STIHL, but also features double the service life and twice as many possible charging cycles as the AP 300 S, our previous most-powerful option. It has an integrated Bluetooth® interface and, just like our AR L backpack batteries, can be linked to the STIHL connected system and managed like a power tool.
