Bosch Genuine AL 1830 CV 18v Cordless Li-ion 3A Fast Battery Charger
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
The Bosch PowerForAll Tool range is a range of tools you can buy knowing that batteries are compatible with all tools in the range providing they are of the same voltage. eg 18v fits 18v, 12v (10.8v) fits 12v (10.8v) etc. Please also note that 10.8v is compatible with 12v & vice versa as it is just a name change. Indego Lawnmowers also use the PowerForAll 18v battery but require a cover plate to be removed if changing.
PowerForAll has many advantages not least the fact that once you have a tool with a few batteries then there is no need to buy the more expensive versions with battery & charger, you can just go ahead & buy the much cheaper no battery versions!
So remember PowerForAll signifies complete battery compatibility throughout the range. There is however, one caveat to this, some of the very first older chargers will not charge the very latest batteries & a battery charger upgrade will be required if you have a first generation charger. All batteries fit all tools however.
As of 2021 Bosch has licensed PowerForAll to other manufacturers whereby batteries between these manufacturers will be interchangeable.
You cannot use Bosch Pro (Blue) batteries in either 12v or 18v DIY (Green) products.

All good so far with product
After receiving good advice from your help line I bought the right charger for my Bosch leaf blower. It works well and is easy to connect and disconnect. It was good that I found it easy to obtain your advice re. this product. Thank you.
A great value service from Tooled Up excellent customer service with prompt and helpful responses. Well done
Good price and prompt service
Excellent as you would expect from Bosch
The charger performs well but difficult to say whether better than any other charger. I survived being dropped over the gate by the delivery driver, so seems to be well constructed. Easy to fit the battery into charging psition.
Quick charge and not bulky. Pleased with it
Great battery charger. Have used a few times very pleased
Does exactly what it says on the tin, its just the same as the one I had until it went caput, good service, it arrived sooner than I thought
Very good all round, the light weight to battery output is the best bit
It simply replaced the original and arrived promptly. V. happy with service.
The fast charger works as you'd expect and charges my batteries in around a third of the time of the normal charger. Very happy with the results. it's slightly bigger than the normal charger, so doesn't quite fit in my drill case as well, but that's something I can live with.
I thought I had purchased a brand new charger and when it arrived it was in an old box packed out with shredded paper. It was dirty and dusty from the packaging. I will not be purchasing anything again from tooled up
Again bought for Xmas so hopefully will be ok
Really fast charging Excellent
This did take some time to arrive due to the 19 but as I was not going anywhere it was not a problem.
Good value for money, compact, fast charging, a Bosch product so build quality good, as you would expect
Excellent service during these strange times. Product is exactly as described
Excellent service and excellent product highly recommended

Customer Questions & Answers
Q : I have a Bosch ALB 18LI leaf blower with a Power 4All 18V 1,5 battery. Is this the right battery charger for it. Thank you.
A : Hi Noeline, yes I can confirm this is a suitable replacement battery charger for the Bosch ALB 18LI leaf blower and will be suitable for all current Bosch Power4All batteries
Q : Good Morning, I have a PSB1800 LI-2 with two batteries and an AL 2215 CV charger. I want to buy a PKS 18 LI saw. Will the old batteries work on the saw? Thanks
A : Hi Art, yes the PSB1800 LI-2 is part of the 18v Power4All range so the batteries you have are compatible with the PKS 18 LI and in fact could be used with any of the tools listed in our Bosch Power4All tools range page. The only thing to bear in mind is that your charger is an older type which won't be able to charge the bigger batteries that have come out since if you ever wanted to upgrade (for example the 4ah batteries won't fit onto it)
Q : Is the battery included with the charger
A : Hi Brian, this is a charger only and does not include a battery
Q : I recently bought a Bosch universal chain 18 from you having researched the current tools namely hedge cutter, lawnmower and leaf blower battery would fit. Disappointingly the batteries do not fit. I am now required to spend more money on a different charger and battery. Is this charger suitable for the chainsaw purchased from you and what is the biggest battery I can buy?
A : Hi Debbie, I don't know what tools you already own but I am guessing from the information provided they are in the Bosch 36v range? The UniversalChain 18 is compatible with a wide range of other power tools but only on the Power4All 18v platform, which uses a smaller battery. This charger is compatible with those batteries, yes, and currently the largest Power4all battery available is the 6ah model we stock on product ID 21022043. You can also see the whole range of batteries and chargers that are compatible with the UniversalChain 18 if you view the "Accessories" section on the main product page for that item on our site.
Q : Hi! I was wondering if this charger would work to replace the lost charger to my Bosch AHS 50-20 LI 18v 2,5h power4all hedge trimmers?? Thank you!
A : Hi Jo, yes absolutely - this is a suitable replacement charger for the Bosch AHS 50-20 LI hedge trimmer and all current Power4All batteries :)
Q : Would this fit a bosch drill psb 1800 li-2 drill batteries 18v 2.0ah
A : Hi Myles, yes this is a suitable replacement battery charger for the Bosch PSB 1800 LI-2 (it will charge Power4All batteries with any ah rating)
Q : My cordless drill GSB 18-2-LI Plus cordless battery is 4.0ah is this compatible with the charger advised on your site Al-1830 Cv18v. Thanks Amit
A : Hi Amit, no I'm afraid it's not - the machine you have is part of the Bosch Professional (Blue) range, and the batteries aren't compatible with this charger at all. You would need a Bosch Professional 18v battery charger such as the GAL 18V40 on product ID 21028574
Q : Might be an obvious question... but is the charger compatible with batteries used on a bosch professional gsr 18-2-li? Thank you
A : Hi, no I'm afraid the batteries and chargers from the Bosch Green (DIY/Garden) and Blue (Professional) ranges are not interchangeable.
Q : Hi, I have a (2011 model) PSB 18 LI-2 Combi Drill; the original charger (AL 2215 CV) has packed up. I contacted Bosch who quoted the replacement as a AL1815 CV, which I see on your site is discontinued? - is this (AL 1830 CV) a direct replacement? will it work with my older (2011?) Power4All 18v 1.5ah batteries? Thanks. Nick.
A : Hi Nick, yes - the AL 1830 CV is a suitable replacement for the old AL 2215 CV battery charger, and in fact it is an improvement as not only will it charge your 1.5ah batteries but it will also charge the larger capacity batteries introduced in the last few years (which won't fit into the older chargers)
Q : Hi I have a Bosch ART 26-18 Li strimmer with a battery power 4All 18v 1.5Ah. will the Al 1820 charger be compatible for my battery .
A : Hi Sukh, yes - the AL 1830 CV is a suitable replacement battery charger for the Bosch ART 26-18 LI
