press release

Bosch is expanding its 18 volt “Power4All” cordless system to now include a powerful hand-held vacuum cleaner with extension tube, the PAS 18 LI. It is suitable for quick in-between cleaning and is exceptionally versatile. Thanks to its extension tube and floor nozzle, the PAS 18 LI can not only clean work surfaces and furniture, but can also be used to conveniently clean surfaces such as carpets and floors. This transforms it from a standard hand-held vacuum into a practical multifunctional vacuum cleaner.

Versatile tool for cordless cleaning
This practical tool offers other accessories in addition to the extension tube and floor nozzle for flexible use without the hassle of a power cord. An extra-long crevice nozzle enables users to clean hard-to-reach areas such as the gaps between car seats. The ergonomic design with softgrip helps to make work effortless in nearly any position. The brush nozzle of the PAS 18 LI is used to clean upholstery or delicate surfaces such as glass plates or wood veneers – or it can also be used to clean the vacuum's filter. To do so, the dust container is simply released from the vacuum at the press of a button and cleaned using the nozzle – making the tool ready for its next job.

Cordless freedom and long battery runtime
The PAS 18 LI is equipped with a powerful 2.0 Ah, lithium-ion battery. As a result, it can vacuum for up to 16 minutes per battery charge – up to 50 percent longer than comparable competitive models. Lithium-ion batteries have hardly any self-discharge, which means the PAS 18 LI is always ready to use. They also have no memory effect, so they can be recharged at any time without a deterioration in battery performance.

Combining with a system: “Power4All” from Bosch
The PAS 18 LI is part of the “Power4All” cordless system for DIY and garden tools. With this system, Bosch offers a powerful, flexible solution for common applications in the house and garden. The same 18 volt lithium-ion battery can be used to operate a current total of twelve power tools – from a cordless grass trimmer to a cordless jigsaw, and from a cordless drill/driver through to the new PAS 18 LI hand-held vacuum cleaner. The “Power4All” cordless system enables do-it-yourselfers to do without a collection of incompatible batteries and chargers. A “Power4All” logo on the packaging indicates which tools belong to the system.

The PAS 18 LI cordless hand-held vacuum cleaner will be available at retail outlets from September 2014 onwards in two versions:
  • with 2.0 Ah battery and charger for 139.99 euros,
  • without battery and charger for 59.99 euros.
All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT. Regardless of with or without battery, the kit comes complete with an extension tube, floor nozzle, crevice nozzle, brush nozzle, and fastening rings for storing the accessories on the tool.
