    Cool! I can see a cordless XFE7 being a real win for mobile guys doing AIO jobs.

    curious as to how long the battery lasts, and as the battery depletes how power is handled and if there is a decrease due to power diminishing does it under the polishers speed/motion.
    Back to the full-time grind.

    30-40 minutes and no information yet what speed to use within that range, and power dropping when battery in lower condition isnít mention yet.

    Great questions guys - just to note - were a tick busy running a booth. Kind of hard to type on my phone on the forum.

    I asked the exact same thing on the other thread, when batteries are running low how is it possible to maintain maximum performance.

    Re: NEX FLEX Cordless Polishers!

    Li-Ion batteries (which is probably what they used) deliver same output until they are out of power. So there's no decrease in power but it will die suddenly so you have no way of knowing when it's close.

    The way I see this is if the battery lasts long enough to go through 1 or 2 pads, then it's great. You'll have a charger nearby already charging another battery and as you swap pads you swap batteries too. If the weight of the tool didn't get crazy heavy due to the battery, I think this is a winner and will set a new standard. Everyone hates cords.

    So, two batteries included with battery life of 30-40 minutes with an equal charging time. Not bad.

    But no forced rotation unit.
