Now the world's best auger (the original ION®) is made better with this updated ION® R1 Gen1 Electric Auger. The brand-new powerhouse uses the lithium-ion 5Ah Gen 1 battery platform to give you even more power. With over 60% more capacity than the original ION® battery, this one punches through more holes and lasts longer, so you can stay out on the ice a little longer. The high-powered battery is paired with a brand-new motor that adds 35% more power and significant speed upgrades over previous ION® Gen 1 Augers. The Auger is outfitted with a precision polymer bottom, plus centering point and cutting ring to ensure safe re-drilling of old holes without binding up or jarring vibrations. 2 LED lights make easier work of drilling in low-light conditions. And reverse button flushes your hole clean in just 15-20 seconds. It's all backed by an industry-leading 3-year warranty that includes the battery. Available in 8" and 10" models.

5Ah (40V) (180W) MAX Gen 1 Battery

The 5 amp-hour, 40V MAX lithium-ion Gen 1 battery is a powerhouse. It features an increase of over 60% in charge capacity from the original 3 amp-hour batteries, so you'll power through more holes from a single charge. In fact, you'll get up to 800" of ice-drilling power with the 10" bit and easily punch through 1,600" of ice with the 8" bit. And monitoring your charge level is easy. Simply press the button on the back of the battery and a bright battery-life indicator shows you how much charge is left. This battery is compatible with all ION® Gen 1 auger models.
