Stihl AP BatteryBatteries - Stihl recommend this saw to be used with the 151Wh AP200 Battery which would allow for 35mins trigger time fully charged. You can use the smaller 76Wh AP100 battery which is lighter or the higher powered AP300 for longer trigger time. The AR2000 and AR3000 backpack batteries are also worth looking at if usage of over 3hrs without a charge is also required.

Charging times vary depending on battery capacity and charger. E.G. AP200 battery in AL200 charger will charge to 80% capacity in 30mins, and 100% in 55mins.
