PORTABLE POWER STATION
EcoFlow has announced the expansion of its UK offering by introducing several new products into its range. The portable power station manufacturer is officially being distributed in the UK via Hampshire Generators. Battery-powered portable power solutions offer a compact, silent and eco-friendly alternative to traditional generators – which generally run on fossil fuels.
Tradespeople can access everything from warranties and receipts, to battery information and services with the my.FEIN app. The new service from Fein is joined by the manufacturer’s new ALG 80 BC battery, with an 8A charging current for short charging times and Bluetooth connectivity. The app will communicate charge status and cycles, whilst sending notifications when the battery is full
There’s now over 45 models of Knipex pliers in its Tethered Tools range. The flexible tether permits a large operating radius and comfortable handling of the secured tool and stretches to a length of up to 1.5m when under strain. An adapter strap guarantees that the tool can be switched safely, quickly and without problems from the tool bag to the tether.
