PH15 has 1500mAh capacity. This is sometimes written as 1.5Ah.
POWERhandles provide power for 18V CEL power tools. The price difference is linked to the capacity of the batteries inside. 4000mAh POWERhandles will be able to perform constant work for longer than the 1500mAh POWERhandles but the tool speed and torque is the same using either type. The difference is the time it takes to use all the stored energy. A lower capacity is great to save money for short jobs or low power consumption tools.
Using a compatible CEL fast charger this battery can charge to 80% capacity in under 30 minutes.
Please note – Lithium Ion POWERhandles requires a compatible charger. Current models that will charge this POWERhandle include. PHFC1, PHSG01, CD03 (New POWER8dock) included with WS3.
