We recently posted about the new Dewalt cordless welder, which can be used cordless or in a “hybrid” plugged-in mode.
In a comment, Logan pointed out that the new Dewalt welder looked to be a rebranded Fronius AccuPocket welder. After looking over the features, capabilities, and appearance of both welders, we have to agree.
The Fronius AccuPocket came out about a year ago, but I can’t say I’ve ever heard of the brand or this product. That’s what makes the arrangement beneficial for both Fronius and Dewalt, as Dewalt has the marketing and distribution might to drive sales, and they are likely better equipped to support international sales as well.
Fronius’ AccuPocket product video offers a good introduction of the welder, and gives you a good idea of where and why one might want a battery-powered welder that can also be run in cordless or hybrid AC mode.
