STIHL Battery Charge and Run Times

Discover how long STIHL equipment can run on a single charge of a STIHL battery



The STIHL Lightning Battery System™ uses custom-engineered batteries and chargers to deliver fast charging and long run times. STIHL battery chargers feature an onboard cooling fan and bright LED display to indicate current charge level. Our chargers even switch off automatically once the battery is fully charged. See below for a complete list of STIHL battery charge times.
