Stihl AP 500 S battery provides more power and longer life
While Stihl is a brand that still runs gas-powered, it's no surprise that it also offers battery-powered options, especially with some states proposing to ban gas-powered devices. The release of the AP 300 S battery updated their original battery formula and now the Stihl AP 500 S pouch battery offers even further improvements. We wanted to take a look at this new battery and see what improvements it brings.
- Model: STIHL AP 500 S
- 9.4Ah capacity

- Up to 2500 cycle life
Starting with the performance, this 36V battery has a capacity of 9.4Ah.

The AP 500 S battery also has 40% more power output and 20% more capacity than the AP 300 S.

The Stihl AP 500 S battery is slightly heavier than its predecessor, weighing in at 4.2 pounds compared to the AP 300 S's 3.96 pounds. Batteries that provide more power and higher capacity naturally weigh more, so this small increase in weight is nothing to be surprised about.
