The STIHL Battery-Powered Equipment line is more than your average family of power tools.
The STIHL battery-powered equipment line is more than your average family of power tools. It represents a new generation of lawn care technology. Likewise, the STIHL AL 100 is not your average battery charger – It’s designed exclusively for STIHL Lithium-Ion batteries, delivering smart features that save you time and money. With a charge time of 70 minutes or less*, you can swap batteries throughout your workday, or leave them to charge overnight. Once your battery is recharged, the AL 100 switches off automatically to prevent over-charging. And with its bright LED display, you can always see how much battery life it has before clicking it into your STIHL Lithium-Ion power tool of choice.
AL 100 Standard Battery Charger is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DrJohn from As advertised ... consider the faster chargerI bought the FSA-85 trimmer, and then the BGA-85 blower. Excellent products and I recommend them both. Great performance and lots of power. I also bought the AP-180 battery, and since it was all that was in stock, I bought the AL-100 charger figuring that I could live with the re-charge time. Well, both tools run for about 30 min on a full charge ... then it's a 3-1/2 hour wait for the re-charge. I'm finding that long time harder to live with than I thought, and have ordered the AL-500 charger to use instead. The AL-100 works exactly as advertised - just think through whether that will really work for you or not. If you have a small yard that takes 1/2 hour or less to trim/clear and can just let the battery charge overnight, the AL-100 is a good choice. My yard at just under an acre is a bigger job than that. Definitely get the tools and the AP-180 battery, but get the charger that's fast enough for what you really need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AIMEE1 from is as advertised...plug battery in and walk away...I'VE HAD THIS CHARGER FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS..VERY EASY TO INSERT BATTERY AND REMOVE SAME. LIKE THE FEATURES ON THE BATTERY"LIGHTS" THAT YOU CAN QUICKLY LOOK AND SEE HOW FAR ALONG THE CHARGING PROCESS HAS PROGRESSED. TAKES ABOUT AN HOUR TO CHARGE THE 80 BATTERY. WOULD BE NICE IF STIHL WOULD MAKE A CHARGER THAT WOULD WORK FROM A 12VOLT VEHICLE ACC. SOCKET FOR WHEN I'M AT THE CAMP.
